About the Facility


The goal of our program is to identify, diagnose, and treat the core issues that led to substance abuse, as well as co-occurring mental illnesses that may be hindering a person’s ability to recover. Our unique program was created as an immediate response to the critical nature of substance abuse. The benefits of seeking help at a residential program far outweigh the benefits of outpatient or individual therapy for those whose addiction issues have accelerated to a dangerous level of behaviors. We understand that you have utilized your valuable resources to hire us to do a job for you, and also understand that you have hired us because it is a job that you now understand that you cannot do for yourself and as such, have agreed to let us do the work you have entrusted us to do.


Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Individualized Treatment

Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

    The beautiful setting, family atmosphere and professional staff at Rise Malibu provided just what I needed and more. The course of my life has been forever altered, sobriety in a new and freeing way. But more than sobriety, it’s given me a new prospective and the ability to live free from the inside out. I am grateful they were there.

    On a 1 to 10 scale, Rise is a 12!!! Please don’t even consider going anywhere else!!! There could be no better environment and everything about it is truly WORLD CLASS!! The facility is the most beautiful, impeccably decorated, ocean view Hoise I have literally ever seen!!! Most importantly, the staff, every single one of them, are quality, caring people with some form of expertise, and the professionals are impeccable too. Finally, the chefs are also world class and EVERY meal is like a 5 star restaurant-maybe even better—sooo delicious and fresh and healthy!! So many rehab places are gross and low budget with lousy help and facilities—don’t waste your time considering them. RISE IS ABOVE AND BEYOND AND THE REAL DEAL—don’t go anywhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
