ABOUT THE CANYON TREATMENT CENTER
Set in the serenity and privacy of 120 wooded acres known as Peace Park, minutes from the Pacific with views of the Santa Monica Mountains, The Canyon Treatment Center in Mailbu provides a continuum of care, beginning with medically supervised detox, for substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. Just 15 percent (197) of California’s 1,311 total treatment facilities provide residential, non-hospital detoxification services.
The Southern California luxury rehab center is one of five operated by Foundations Recovery Network, all of which emphasize holistic therapy, including Black Bear Lodge, an adventure therapy program in Georgia; Talbott Recovery, offering young adult and professionals tracks in Atlanta; The Oaks at Paloma in Memphis; and Michael’s House in Palm Springs.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Residential treatment plans at The Canyon at Peace Park are tailored to meet each client’s needs and goals, according to the facility’s website. The 12-Steps serve as a common foundation, and most plans include multiple daily group sessions and at least two hours of individual counseling each week.
Among the treatment modalities practiced are motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), trauma-oriented eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), the Seeking Safety model, and art therapy.
Residents also participate in mindfulness practices, equine therapy, yoga, massage, and spirituality groups. The Peace Park campus features a meditation dome, prayer labyrinth, and therapeutic sweat lodge, along with a ropes course used for adventure therapy.
The Canyon’s family program offers education and coping skills development once a month. Clients can continue treatment through the facility’s outpatient program, offered at a separate setting in Santa Monica.
The Canyon’s treatment team is led by a licensed clinical social worker with a doctorate in human development. The primary therapist-to-client ratio is 1:4, according to the facility’s website, and staff members include consulting internists and doctorate- and master’s-level therapists.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Clients at The Canyon Treatment Center can expect personalized, comfortable care in spacious, airy, semi-private rooms. The facility’s capacity of 16 residents falls well below the national average of 33. Both gender-separate residences have a luxurious swimming pool. Additional amenities include a full fitness center, access to a physical trainer, and organic, gourmet meals prepared by a Cordon Bleu-trained chef.
The Malibu facility’s alumni association is active, and a dedicated support staff member coordinates follow-up, opportunities to share stories, and social gatherings.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing, reviews for The Canyon Treatment Center at Peace Park were strongly favorable, at a ratio of more than two-to-one over critical feedback. Of seven alumni polled to date by Rehabs.com, three noted the facility’s expense, but two of these indicated clearly that it was worth the cost.
Reviewers tended to highlight the program’s effectiveness, accommodations and location, and staff as strengths. The one alum polled on the matters gave perfect five-star ratings for the staff's experience, holistic offerings, and discharge planning. However, one former client reported receiving inadequate counseling for a dual diagnosis**; two Yelp reviews echoed this experience.
While the nine alumni reviews on Yelp reflected more polarized perspectives, feedback tended to focus on similar factors. Positive alumni praised the clinical staff and treatment as professional and individualized, along with the “beautiful, serene, and peaceful” location, as one representative review wrote. Criticism mostly centered on cost. "I stayed at The Canyon for 45 days about a year ago. I am proud to say that I am writing this review sober," alum Mike wrote.
On the facility’s official Facebook page, which its staff may monitor, The Canyon had an average rating of 4.5 out of five stars, based on the opinion of 33 people. While one concurred with a Yelp reviewer that their experience was not what had been advertised, comments tended to characterize the program as life-saving. Opportunities for alumni involvement were also highlighted.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The two loved ones polled by Rehabs.com would recommend The Canyon at Peace Park. They each gave five out of five stars for family participation (which the one alum polled on this metric also granted). Reviewers cited the support their loved ones received for developing healthy lifestyles as a facility strength.
The Canyon Treatment Center accepts major insurance company plans. The two individuals polled by Rehabs.com on treatment affordability gave two and three stars apiece, in otherwise positive reviews.
According to the facility’s Facebook page at the time of this writing, The Canyon Treatment Center’s property at Peace Park was affected, without extreme damage, by the November 2018 wildfire in Malibu. Clients and staff were safely evacuated and receiving care at alternative spaces. The rehab center was expected to return to its main site.
