Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center understands that drug addiction is a clinical disease, with clinical causes and a need for clinical treatments

The National Institute on Drug Abuse recently affirmed that chronic use of Ecstasy (MDMA) may lead to changes in brain function. Rohypnol, commonly known as a date-rape drug, can incapacitate users and cause amnesia when it is mixed with alcohol. GHB (gamma hydroxybutyrate), an illegally produced drug, that usually shows up in the form of a liquid that has no odor, or color, can lead to seizures and comas, while high doses of Ketamine, or ‘Special K’ can cause delirium, amnesia, impaired motor function, and potentially fatal respiratory problems. The Drug Enforcement Administration reported that overt effects of Special K can last an hour, but the drug can still affect the body for up to 24 hours. Despite the dangerous side effects, these harmful drugs are popular with club goers, and those attending “rave parties”.

Mixed with alcohol, these particular drugs as well as methamphetamine, acid (LSD), and many others, can be quite dangerous, even deadly, not only for teens and young adults, but for people of all ages. Because of this, a lot of parents, siblings and friends are afraid that without drug rehab, substance abuse will permanently harm their loved ones.

The most important lesson for anyone pursuing addiction recovery is to understand that drug addiction is a clinical disease, with clinical causes and a need for clinical treatments. At Cliffside Malibu, a state-of-the-art residential drug rehab center, and extended care facility, important, international patients, suffering from drug addiction can find some of the finest and most extensive treatments in the world. Overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean, the Cliffside Malibu addiction treatment center is located just north of Zuma Beach, CA. The facility spans almost two acres and offers luscious gardens, a swimming pool, a well equipped gym, gourmet meals, and total privacy.

Drug abuse ruins lives, wrecks families and prevents individuals from maintaining a rewarding social life. It affects educational growth, endangers a steady employment, or the fulfillment of professional responsibilities. The team of experts at Cliffside will put their quality drug rehab skills to good use, fully aware that a drug rehab program entails more than in-depth therapy sessions. How can anyone get better if they feel like a prisoner rather than a welcome patient, or a retreat guest?

Ask yourself the following: what distinguishes one drug rehab center from the next? Revolutionary, effective drug treatments? A completely undisturbed, undistracted and relaxed setting? A secluded, high-end facility, offering all the comforts from home and goes beyond the call of duty to help and assist? An unsurpassed success rate, with worldwide satisfied customers? All of the above and much more are awaiting each patient admitted at Cliffside Malibu. Just contact them, and you will soon find out that the efficient staff is not only very informative about drug rehab therapy, or any of the other exclusive services, but they are professional, kind and ever so patient. Their state of the art treatment methods, offered by renowned physicians are paired with the talents of massage therapists, acupuncturists, herbologists, personal trainers, spiritual advisers, and holistic medicine practitioners. The center is also licensed for dual diagnosis residential treatment, which means they can treat not only drug addiction, but co-occurring disorders, and compulsions, such as alcoholism, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or social phobia.

The Cliffside’s drug treatment programs are tried and tested systems, which focus not only on the physiological, behavioral, and social effects, but on all aspects of substance abuse; each drug rehab program is created to meet all the unique needs of the patient.

Alcohol Abuse Can Lead To Insurmountable Problems Unless A Fully Customized Alcohol Rehab Program Can Be Initiated

The destruction and pervasive effects of alcoholism are almost impossible to comprehend, unless you are directly confronted by them. Recent studies, surveys and relevant statistics regarding the extended use of alcohol consumption, have detailed the dangerous effects of alcohol abuse on the human body quite overtly. Researchers at the University of Chicago recently presented one of the largest studies of its kind, and found that women who drink alcohol increase their risk for breast cancer. Alcohol has a negative influence on estrogen and progesterone receptors, which are both found in most breast cancer tumors.

Abusing alcohol, and other substances for that matter, can lead to insurmountable problems unless a fully customized alcohol rehab program can be initiated. Alcoholism not only affects the abuser’s mental and physical condition, but also his or her immediate environment. Addictions affect everyone, including the addict’s family, friends and co-workers; in some cases even strangers, who can be hurt, or even killed if an individual, under the influence of alcohol, causes a fatal accident.

Cliffside Malibu, an elite Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Treatment Center, is located north of Zuma Beach, California. Overlooking the warm, and sandy beaches of the Pacific coastline, the exquisite beachfront property is famous for its exclusive treatment programs, and ever so famous international clients, who seek to recover in a luxurious setting, yet with their privacy fully protected. Stressing the importance of comfort during recovery, the center offers unique, individualized treatment programs, including alcohol and drug detox.

When life is suddenly interrupted by a tragic or traumatic event, it often feels as if the world has come to a sudden halt. That is exactly how a recovering addict may feel, when finally admitting they have a fundamental problem to deal with. There is no shame in seeking help from a renowned treatment center, staffed with the most qualified physicians, nurses and medical experts in the world. With unsurpassed services, Cliffside Malibu knows how to make alcohol rehab programs work, for both the addicts, and their families. They take care of everyone, from the moment the client is admitted, while going through the evaluation process, the intense alcohol rehabilitation, and even provide aftercare, when deemed necessary.

Some rehabilitation facilities would like you to believe that getting sober is simply a matter of going through the motions of an alcohol rehab program. Unfortunately, that is not the way healing happens. The truth is that alcoholism is a profoundly personal disease, and alcohol recovery must occur on a profoundly personal level. Especially, when ‘drinking’ is not the only crisis that needs attention. If there is a co-existing substance abuse, drug detox may also be required. An eating disorder may need to be addressed, physical neglect may require physical therapy, or stress may have to be eliminated through relaxation therapy. These, and many other exceptional services are offered only at the best treatment centers, such as Cliffside Malibu. They work with the most brilliant acupuncturists, herbologists, massage therapists, holistic medicine practitioners, and personal trainers, just to name a few.

Identifying the need for alcohol rehab is one thing, designing the perfect treatment that will achieve sobriety, and lead to a lasting recovery, another. A truly effective and successful alcohol rehabilitation program starts by focusing on ALL of the patient’s needs, not just the addiction(s). Award winning actors, pop stars, politicians, influential businessmen, it really does not matter who you are, every client will be provided with maximum comfort, while receiving cutting edge treatment, all designed to help them recover faster, and in style.

True specialists treat addiction as a clinical disease with very real clinical roots. At Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center, they know how it works, and how long it can take. Only if a patient’s physical and mental needs are completely met, will a discharge, and transition into society, be suggested.
