Facilities & Programs

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient Treatment

Our inpatient program allows clients space from everyday stressors so they can focus on recovery. Our treatment residences include ocean views, outdoor fire pits, a pool, and semi-private and private suites. Our culinary team prepares well-balanced meals for our residents, and clients visit an off-site gym regularly.

Why It’s Effective

We’ve found that a safe, comfortable setting allows clients to focus on treatment and recovery, not what’s lacking in their environment.

Psychiatric Care

Psychiatric Care

Each client meets with our double board certified psychiatrists for comprehensive behavioral health assessments. Throughout treatment, clients regularly meet with our psychiatric and medical teams for any medication management needs.

Why It’s Effective

Managing psychiatric symptoms helps clients focus more fully on treatment.

  • h

Trauma Therapy

Trauma Therapy

Untreated trauma can fuel substance abuse and other destructive behaviors. Our clinical team is specially trained to treat PTSD, acute trauma, and complex trauma. We use an array of trauma-focused therapies including cognitive behavioral therapy, equine therapy, neurofeedback, and Somatic Experiencing®.

Why It’s Effective

Addressing trauma helps clients heal emotional wounds that may contribute to mental health issues.

  • h

Dual Diagnosis

Dual Diagnosis

Mental health issues often go hand-in-hand with substance abuse and other issues. At Malibu Vista, we treat drug and alcohol abuse and mental health issues simultaneously to help clients recover fully.

Why It’s Effective

Treating both mental health and substance abuse issues at the same time allows clients to address all of the problems that stand in the way of healing, effectively positioning them for long-term recovery.

  • h

Holistic Therapies

Holistic Therapies

Mental health disorders affect more than just the mind. Our holistic therapies, including yoga and meditation, take a 360-degree approach to wellness and help clients heal physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Why It’s Effective

Holistic therapies help clients heal from the inside out and learn healthy ways to manage stress and triggers, which lays a strong foundation for long-term recovery.

  • h

Equine Therapy

Equine Therapy

In equine therapy, clients interact with horses in a therapeutic setting. With guidance from a trained equine therapist, clients gain insights into themselves, their emotions, and how they interact with others.

Why It’s Effective

Equine therapy can help clients build self-esteem, trust, and communication skills, which are important components of long-term recovery.

  • h

Family Therapy

Family Therapy

Mental health issues affect the entire family. We offer family and couples therapy as clinically appropriate. Family members learn about their loved one’s disorder(s) and get guidance on how to best support one another in recovery.

Why It’s Effective

Involving families in treatment and offering them support and recovery resources can help improve family relationships and establish healthy communication practices.

  • h

Social Skills

Social Skills

Mental health issues can hinder social development. Within a supportive community of other women, our clients practice interpersonal skills and learn about healthy relationships.

Why It’s Effective

Strengthening social skills can help clients build a support network after treatment and feel more confident in their interactions with others.

  • h

Women-Only Treatment

Women-Only Treatment

Malibu Vista tailors treatment to the specific needs of women. Within a small group of same-sex peers sharing similar struggles, clients can feel safe exploring difficult feelings and gaining insights from others.

Why It’s Effective

Same-sex treatment can prevent some of the distractions that may come with mixed-gender treatment. It also helps clients feel more secure sharing personal experiences within the treatment community.
