Millions of people in America alone live with some form of a mental illness or other mental health issue. These disorders can be found in children and adults and men and women.What is a Mental Health Disorder or Illness,A mental illness is a medical condition that interferes with an individual’s feelings, moods, thinking patterns, relationships with others and ability to function normally day by day. Many individuals that suffer from a mental disorder find it difficult to cope with the ordinary demands and responsibilities in everyday life.

Mental health disorders can range greatly and cover a wide range of issues. Common mental health disorders include: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive behaviors and personality disorders.Treatment For Mental Health Disorders,The good news is that treatment is available and recovery is possible. Here at Avalon Malibu we treat a number of mental health disorders and issues.

We also treat a number of other disorders and addictions – such as substance abuse and addiction, eating disorders and the co-occurring disorders with a dual diagnosis (such as depression and alcohol abuse).Learn More About Our Mental Health Treatment Here

Mental Health and Addiction,Often times a mental health issue goes untreated or is even misdiagnosed. Because of this, many individuals find their own ways to cope with their issues and illnesses, often times “self-medicating” with drugs and/or alcohol. Some individuals are provided with a prescription drug to help with their illness, but they don’t always take the medicine as prescribed and end up abusing the drug which can lead to addiction and other problems.

In order for an individual to fully recover and go on to live a happy life, we must treat the underlying issues that lead to the bigger problems. Generally this starts with the treatment of the mental health illness and leads to treatment for other issues, such as drug and alcohol abuse.

“Recognizing that traditional approaches to drug and alcohol problems are not very effective, mental health clinicians have been engaged in a search of better treatment strategies for people with these problems.” (Marlatt 2006, Marlett Topert 2009)

Avalon Malibu has developed and refined evidence based scientifically validated protocol that is unique, powerful, and practical, an approach that is the shared philosophy of the entire Avalon team.The Avalon Malibu Advantage,“Unless we approach the treatment of these disorders in a healing way, addressing the issue simultaneously and from the perspective that they occur with a social, emotional and behavioral context, taking in the connection between the mind, body, and spirit, our successes will continue to be too little, too little, too late”, says Avalon Clinical Director, Theresa Chesnut, MS.

At Avalon Malibu, our Substance Abuse Treatment Center offers a healthful and positive life changing experience. Avalon Malibu’s sanctuary model is a forward thinking approach to addiction and psychiatric treatment. We are committed to helping our clients impart new ways of living through progressive treatments that help expose and release old ways of behavior.

Avalon Malibu has two residential treatment houses one being the Cottage House where our substance abuse treatment program takes place. The Cottage House is licensed under the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, (ADP) to treat substance use and abuse disorders along with co-occurring behavioral health issues. The program is also licensed to treat adults in an inpatient setting in what is considered to be a ‘sub-acute medically supervised detoxification.’Avalon Malibu offers comprehensive substance abuse treatment programs. Our team of dedicated professionals are trained extensively to accommodate and aid in the recovery of our substance abuse clients. Our residential Substance Abuse Treatment offers specific protocols from Inpatient Psych, and Detoxification, to Residential Treatment, Partial Hospitalization (day treatment), Intensive Outpatient Programs and Outpatient Psychotherapy with Medication Management. Our emphasis is on integrating mind, body and spirit with evidenced based therapeutic processes using expressive arts as a critical medium for change.

At Avalon Malibu our emphasis is on integrating mind, body and spirit with evidenced based therapeutic processes. We combine 12 step approaches with group and individual psychotherapy. Avalon Malibu offers therapeutic interventions founded on evidenced based principles of mindfulness, present time awareness, acceptance, investigation and change. The principals of our educational and therapeutic model are formed using Motivational Enhancement Therapy combined with Cognitive behavioral therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies.

Avalon Malibu offers couples and family therapy aimed at helping clients resolve conflicts, strengthen healthy bonds, and forge positive relationship dynamics. Addiction not only challenges the addict. Its impact challenges the family, friends, co-workers and loved ones. Our psychologists help facilitate the healing process between the addict and their family. Releasing the shame and blame that often accompany the addict in moving towards understanding, forgiveness and compassion are key to establishing healthy relationships within the family system. Family therapy is an important and integral part of the therapeutic process at Avalon Malibu.

At Avalon Malibu, every client who comes to our residential Cottage House for recovery also participates in one on one psychotherapy and counseling, along with group therapies, and marriage and family therapy when needed. Avalon Malibu also provides extensive aftercare planning and counseling with a goal to improve retention in treatment, in order to reduce behaviors such as unemployment, family discourse, and self-harmful behaviors. We assist each client with gaining greater insight into the meaning of life, where the pain of the past becomes a stepping stone to a future built on choice, rather than compulsion.

Useful for managing stress, depression, anxiety and trauma, mindfulness meditation enhances scientifically proven treatment. Mindful meditation allows clients to increase awareness of stressors, emotions and thought patterns. Practicing this insight, clients can achieve acceptance and experience deep conscious awareness, in conjunction with adjunct therapies.
