Safety and connection are paramount to a healthy human experience.
Your journey to recovery begins with your first phone call to us. Together, we begin the process of individualizing a plan that will work for you, before you even arrive at our Admissions Office at The Pointe Malibu Recovery Center. During that first call, we learn about you, your unique lifestyle, and your individual needs through a lens that focuses on a felt sense of safety. This safety is uniquely defined by our makeup, life experiences, and more. With this in mind, our approach during pre-admission includes reflective listening. Next, we can connect you directly to any essential care team member or alumnus from our program. We want you to be able to ask questions and thoroughly understand the program. This offers a great opportunity to shape an early and meaningful bond.
At the time of admission, you meet some of the staff members who will play an important role in your support group. During this visit, you will have a medical examination and social assessment, which will identify any medical conditions or other health risks in addition to your addiction and/or co-occurring mental health issues.
Our dedicated Admissions team at The Pointe Malibu Recovery Center compiles your medical and prior mental health treatment history for our review. We will also discuss our medication regimen and holistic practices, introduce you to our process, and take you on a brief tour to see your ultra-comfortable temporary home. Our focus at this time is to make you feel welcome, safe, and secure in the knowledge that you will receive the ultimate in attentive, personal care.
Integrating Care for Support
One of the many care components that sets The Pointe Malibu apart is our Polyvagal Inspired approach which values the connection between our clinical staff, your referring physician or party, your family in whatever form you choose and, of course, you. This bond surrounds you with those who care about you and want the very best results for your recovery journey. Once you provide written permission, we can make each one of these groups an integral part of your support team.
