Areas of Specialization:
- Journey Malibu’s detox Drug Addiction Treatment Program
The detoxification process in drug rehab is sometimes necessary right away to address an individual’s physical addiction to drugs. It’s possible that during detox you may experience withdrawal symptoms. Generally, these symptoms will not be life threatening, but they can be accompanied by relapse if the detox is not supervised by a trained professional. Of course, your detox at Journey Malibu will be supervised by a licensed medical doctor who is equipped to monitor this delicate phase of your treatment.
- Professional Health Recovery Program
Journey Malibu is a drug and alcohol treatment center, tailored specifically for Professionals in the most demanding, high-stress jobs, such as Physicians, Attorneys, Judges, and Airline Pilots. These are career professionals whose difficulties with drug and alcohol abuse often require them to answer to state and federal licensing boards, and who subsequently may be placed in monitoring or assistance programs. Our primary purpose at Journey Malibu is to address your substance use disorders, and have you practicing your chosen profession again as smoothly, functionally, and effectively as possible.
