Rely on care that inspires healthy social connection to bring natural joy back to your life.
At first, you may notice the lovely salt air breezes and feel inspired by the ocean view sunsets, and luxury surroundings; but you will long remember our concierge-style services and comprehensive clinical care. We have developed a treatment approach focused on social connection and community while integrating the natural environment and innovative research. Soothing the nervous system is a theme throughout the recovery process. We believe in combining abstinence and harm-reduction models with holistic-based approaches to support your pursuit of lasting recovery. At The Pointe Malibu Recovery Center, we are committed to the person-centered treatment you deserve.
Dr. Stephen Porges' polyvagal theory
Our team is inspired by the Polyvagal Theory and attunes to queues of one’s biological, psychological, and social engagement. The theory emphasizes the important role of “safety” in our lives, which is dependent on the autonomic state. This understanding is driven by the science of distinct vagal motor pathways. We have anchored our program in understanding how trauma retunes the autonomic state, making calmness, social engagement, and adaptive responses challenging. These responses are addressed through assessment of your neural state, promotion of safety, and a range of interventions that allow the state of your autonomic nervous system to act as the mediator of mental and physical health.
Developing the Plan That’s Right for You
Above all, we believe in and celebrate your uniqueness. To us, there is no such thing as “one treatment program fits all.” Before ever designing a recovery plan for you, our Admissions Director and in-house physician meet with you and evaluate your situation. Only after careful analysis do we begin to devise the perfect plan…the right plan…for your successful outcome. Our 5:1 staff-to-client ratio, with 5 to 8 individual sessions per week, amplifies the importance that we place on personalizing your journey.
It’s About Your Wellness, As Much as Your Illness
Your clinical team at The Pointe Malibu sustains this individualized care with a healing philosophy that treats you in the most complete sense. We achieve this by applying evidence-based, abstinence-based, and holistic-based treatments that address your mind, body, and spirit. This enables you to restore the whole person within you and achieve a more comprehensive recovery.
A Trauma Informed and Polyvagal Inspired Approach
The centerpiece of our treatment philosophy is trauma-informed and polyvagal-inspired. It establishes a sense of belonging and connection with your unique support system. This provides you with a complete Continuum of Care that extends well beyond your discharge from our facility. By centering “safety” with the goal of connection, healing can progress in a stronger, more positive manner. And you can feel confident that, even after returning to the outside world, there are people in your corner. Rooting for you. Supporting you. Helping you to succeed.
