Los Angeles, California (PressExposure) July 18, 2009 -- Cliffside Malibu, an exclusive recovery clinic on the Malibu coast, has long been a leading light in the California treatment community. Now, the center is pleased to announce its renewed commitment to providing sober living services for its graduating residents.
Sober living is an essential part of the healing process. Sober living facilities provide an important transitional link between primary rehab and the real world, allowing residents to test the waters of independence within a supportive network of counselors and mentors. That combination facilitates personal growth while ensuring against the threat of relapse.
Complete recovery should be the only acceptable outcome of rehab. That principle, in turn, is the bedrock of Cliffside Malibuâs sober living philosophy.
With its expert caregivers and posh amenities, Cliffside Malibu is a world-class institution. The center has always catered to an elite clientele. Now Cliffside is expanding its mission, with the goal of delivering the best care on the planet to those who need it. At Cliffside Malibu, nothing less than excellence will ever be acceptable.
âCliffside Malibu is a holistic and long-term rehabilitation facility,â said Cliffside Malibu Program Director Dr. Georgina Smith. âWe support our clients through every phase of the healing process, with the goal of helping them achieve meaningful and lasting recovery. Our sober living programs are a vital part of that enduring commitment.â
That âenduring commitmentâ helps to explain the robust success rate enjoyed by Cliffsideâs graduates. Itâs also precisely what distinguishes Cliffside from its competitors.
Most rehab facilities pay lip service to the importance of the sober living process as well as the sober living environment. But very few clinics put principle into practice. Indeed, many of the most expensive rehab centers in Los Angeles devote insufficient resources to their sober living programs. Many even outsource the sober living programs altogether. As a result, these centers routinely fall short of the promises they make to their clients.
Given the stakes in the recovery process, those sorts of failures are simply unacceptable.
âSober living is about human living,â said Patricia Freeberry, Cliffsideâs Clinical Director. âThe skills and strength our clients develop in our sober living programs help them stay sober over the long run, in a way that allows them to rebuild their lives from the ground up. For us, thatâs the most important consideration of all.â
Every substance abuse victim knows that addiction is a devastating disease. The good news is that devastation doesnât have to be the end of the story. Cliffside Malibu has a long record of helping residents fix whatâs broken. With the centerâs new commitment to sober living, the future seems to be brighter than ever.
