The Difference With Holistic Addiction Recovery

[Malibu, CA] - Sunset Malibu is traditionally regarded among the most successful addiction recovery centers in California. With the goal of providing even better service to its clients, the facility is announcing a renewed commitment to family-oriented therapy throughout the recovery process.

It's no secret that addiction can tear families apart. What might not be so obvious, though, is that addiction recovery has to entail familial healing. The most effective
addiction recovery center is that one that brings an addict's family members together for group counseling and therapy sessions. In the end, there's no better way to ensure the best possible outcome for everyone involved.

Those considerations, in turn, comprise the core of Sunset Malibu's treatment philosophy.

Sunset Malibu's caregivers are widely hailed as leading figures in the field. No less importantly, Sunset's elegant private compound offers residents an ideal setting for recovery. Sunset's clinical competence and unique atmosphere have prompted upscale clients from all over the world to seek the center's care. With their latest initiative, Sunset's administrators hope to provide even better service to their patients.

"Our clients invariably come to us with badly damaged home lives," said Sunset Malibu's owner. "Part of our role as an addiction treatment facility is to provide a safe space in which family members can work to rebuild the relationships that addiction so often ruins. In fact, our family therapy services are among the most important that we offer."

Unfortunately, that commitment to family therapy is precisely what sets Sunset apart from its competitors.

Study after study indicates the correlation between intensive family counseling and long-term addiction recovery. But not all addiction recovery centers heed the lesson. In fact, many of the most well-known addiction treatment clinics in Los Angeles actively isolate addicts from their families during the rehabilitation process. More often than not, such strategies prove to be counterproductive over the long run.

Sunset administrators, for their part, assert that such shortcomings are inexcusable.

"Addiction recovery doesn't happen in isolation," said a representative from Sunset Malibu's clinical team. "Our patients can only hope to achieve lasting wellness if they're supported by their loved ones during the healing process. We believe that our robust record of clinical success is heavily dependent on our commitment to family therapy."

Sunset Malibu's expert caregivers are keenly aware of the stakes faced by their clients in the fight against addiction. That's why they invest so much effort and energy in ensuring the long-term success of the healing process. It's also why Sunset is among the best addiction recovery centers on the planet. Now more than ever before, the center's residents and their loved ones have reason to believe that tomorrow really will be better than today.
