Outpatient Rehab Center in Malibu

Serenity Malibu offers outpatient substance abuse programs for certain patients. An outpatient program is opposite to that of inpatient treatment and offers patients the flexibility to undertake the rehabilitation process without staying in the rehab center. You can visit the rehab facility as and when required and can stay at your home with continuing a routine lifestyle.

Our outpatient treatment program is not for patients suffering from severe addiction issues, especially if they are likely to experience withdrawals when they stop using substances. Even after undergoing a medical detox in rehab, there is a high risk that the individual may use the substance again if they do not continue inpatient treatment, compromising the draining and difficult withdrawal process they have just endured.

Our Criteria for Outpatient Substance Abuse Programs:

The following criterion decides whether you are suitable for our outpatient rehab treatment:

  • The patient who has mild addiction and who will not experience the withdrawal symptoms when they stop using the substance.
  • They have a strong support system at home, from family and friends.
  • They have job security and the flexibility to attend treatment, either due to a shorter workday or an understanding employer. If they are self-employed, they are particularly suited to adjusting their structure to make the necessary space for treatment.
  • The patient who is not in touch with any other addicted person in a family, workplace, or friends.

Outpatient substance abuse programs require full commitment from the patient’s side.

If the individual cannot guarantee that they will be able to attend all sessions without pressure from their work or home environment, they are better suited to inpatient rehab, where they have no choice but to commit.

What are the Types of Outpatient Rehab Treatments We Provide?

We at Serenity Malibu provide different types of outpatient substance abuse programs that cater to patients with different needs:

Day Programs:

Day programs at Serenity Malibu are most suitable for individuals who have few work commitments or can take some of their time off.

The individual has to come 5-7 days a week for several hours depending on their condition. At the end of the day, after going through a structured treatment, patients are allowed to go home.

Intensive Outpatient Program:

Our intensive outpatient program consists of a treatment plan designed to accommodate the individual’s needs and availability.

Serenity Malibu’s intensive outpatient treatment is suitable for individuals who do not require a medical detox, have flexibility or understanding from employers, and have been diagnosed by a professional as having a mild substance abuse disorder.

Outpatient Aftercare:

Serenity Malibu offers outpatient aftercare for those patients who have attended our inpatient rehab programs.

This includes sessions that will continue the therapy process they began in rehab, assistance in applying their training in everyday life, and support from counselors and other attendees. Our outpatient aftercare sessions are scheduled to occur within the individual’s schedule, so as not to disrupt their return to normal life.

What do we Offer as a Complementary Treatment Module?

We understand that addiction, substance abuse, and mental disorders are many of the times co-occurring. Hence our experts provide various therapies to help the patients deal with the situation. Serenity Malibu Outpatient Rehab Center provides clients with some complementary treatment modules as part of the recovery process:


Serenity Malibu has an expert staff of psychiatrists who can diagnose personality disorders like depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, etc. We prescribe non-addictive medication to treat these disorders and also recommend inpatient rehab to clients who are likely to struggle with outpatient treatment.

Individual Therapy

In an outpatient substance abuse program, Serenity Malibu assigns an expert therapist to provide individual therapy to the client. With this therapist, the patient will work on discovering the external and internal forces that led to the addiction, including co-occurring disorders diagnosed by the psychiatrist. They will explore their family history, unearthing the source of unhealthy coping mechanisms, as a starting point for developing healthy coping mechanisms in their place.

Group Therapy

We at Serenity Malibu, provide group therapy to the patients as a part of our outpatient aftercare program. Our goal is to offer the patients support rather than therapy, developing an encouragement in them by learning experiences of other people.

Family Therapy

Sometimes, family dysfunction is a causative factor in the individual’s addiction. As our patients will be living with their families during the outpatient program, we give utmost importance to family therapy.

Relapse Prevention

In our outpatient treatment center, clients attend relapse prevention sessions to learn what they can do to avoid triggers, manage cravings, and bring their recovery into their everyday lives. They will also gain insight on how to rebound from a relapse.

Alternative Treatment Modules

At Serenity Malibu, several alternative treatment modules are offered. This includes personalized treatments which provide the opportunity to find therapies that are better suited to each client. These therapies include:

  • Hypnotherapy (carried out by certified practitioners)
  • Mindfulness therapy
  • Acupuncture and Massage

  • Educational programs on substances and neurobiology
