What We Treat
We are experts in treating drug addiction and alcoholism, and we use the most effective and cutting edge approaches, such as The Seasons Systemic Family Treatment Program. Seasons takes into account that for a person to successfully become rehabilitated long-term, one must also heal the family unit and include them in the counseling. We also specialize in helping those who struggle with co-occurring disorders, which has been increasingly acknowledged as a common problem for people with addictions.
Drugs that people commonly become addicted to include cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. Each of these drugs have lured people in to form devastating addictions. Cocaine is one of the most popular drugs, and people who become addicted to it speak of the euphoric feelings a person experiences when using the drug. However, as with most illegal drugs, the side-effects are dangerous and even fatal, and include:
These dangerous side-effects, which become more malignant the longer the person regularly uses cocaine, claims many lives in the United States each year. In addition to cocaine, other “party drugs” like Ecstasy also can become addictive. Addiction comes in many different forms, and prescription drug abuse is also becoming more and more common. Seasons is fully capable of helping those who seek to break their dependency on prescription or illegal drugs.
Whatever form your addiction comes in, Seasons has a group of experienced and compassionate professionals who will take into consideration the nature of your addiction and tailor a program specifically to achieve the highest rate of success.
An important and sensitive condition to also treat when it comes to addiction rehab is dual diagnosis. This is also referred to as co-occurring disorders (COD). It requires experts who specialize and are experienced treating people with this problem. What is a dual diagnosis? It refers to people who suffer from another major disorder, besides their addiction. The other issue could range from an eating disorder to being diagnosed as bipolar. Whatever the other issue is, it has been discovered that by treating both problems at the same time, the patient has a much better chance at long-term recovery.
More and more research has shown that addiction is not an isolated problem, and often stems from other emotional and psychological disorders. So for a person to recovery properly, one has to heal the entire person, and not just one isolated part. This also means that professionals who understand the person’s other issue, are required to provide effective treatment. Seasons has professionals who have experience counseling patients with a dual diagnosis.
Treating patients with a dual diagnosis is an especially urgent to address, because oftentimes they have a complex set of problems and could suffer from very serious consequences. They are more likely to become homeless, relapse, or exhibit self-destructive behaviors. While some people have treated the addiction and the other disorder separately, treating them both at the same time with an integrated program of care is truly the most promising and effective way to help the patient. At Seasons we have a highly qualified team of experts who can come up with an integrated program to treat the co-occurring disorders. Because California is on the cutting-edge of addiction treatments, Seasons is constantly learning new and more promising ways to help the patients that we deeply want to succeed in changing their lives.

The facilities at Seasons will allow the resident to experience firsthand what the benefits of luxury rehab are, from the top-quality staff, to the amazing campus that offer the resident a great variety of activities. Because of how in-depth and intensive treatment is at Seasons, the facilities will offer a welcome source of release. Located by gorgeous Zuma Beach, the campus stretches over 3 acres and residents have daily access to Zuma Beach. While other California rehab centers may claim they’re close to the beach, Seasons truly offers the beach-lifestyle to residents. Additionally, they can partake in a wide range of activities, such as:

We are dedicated to providing the patient with the tools they need to find success in the outside world. Seasons is deeply dedicated to our philosophy of treating our patients with respect, constantly improving our own knowledge of addiction, and embracing change.
Holistic Addiction Treatment
One of the trademarks of Seasons is our emphasis on holistic addiction treatments. More than just the latest trendy treatment, holistic treatments for addiction are a huge step towards helping people achieve long-term recovery, and understanding that addiction stems from a variety of different factors. Much like co-occurring disorders understanding more the holistic treatments that will best counteract addiction will only help people understand the complexities of the issue. Meditation is a common form of therapy, and classes in nutrition and regular exercise help to balance the body and the spirit.
Systemic Family Treatment
Another important component of Seasons is the Systemic Family Treatment Program, which refers to treating the family unit in a systemic fashion. This treatment comes from the idea that if an addict is surrounded by a healthy family unit, many of the triggers of addiction will be lessened. This is why family is highly encouraged to take part in counseling sessions to reunite families and strengthen their bonds and positive interactions.
For You Or A Loved One
One of Seasons’ main goals is to make it as easy and accessible as possible for someone with an addiction to initiate contact and make the important first step towards recovery. We are dedicated to handling all interactions with the utmost care, courtesy, and discretion. By calling the number 866-780-8539 to speak to an addiction counselor you can make that first connection.
The admissions counselor will be ready to answer any questions or concerns you may have, and then walk you through the process of what becoming a patient of Seasons entails and the journey of recovery. Many people will understandably be quite nervous about making the first step to get help, but the counselor will explain to you in detail answers to questions that you will be most concerned about. You will receive answers to:
- The costs and payment structure
- Transportation options
- The process and benefits of inpatient rehab
- What amenities Seasons offers
And, of course, you will be invited to visit the campus to witness firsthand what life at Seasons will be like when attending inpatient rehab. You will also undergo a comprehensive evaluation, where our qualified MD will start the detox process, a crucial first step towards beginning the recovery process. By visiting Seasons, you will have the benefit of starting the process under the watchful eye of a MD, who will ensure you get the safest detox possible.
Seasons Malibu Costs
Because of the complexity, importance, and our dedication to maintaining a high success rate, it’s an absolute requirement that we only have the resources of the finest quality. When it comes to receiving high-quality care for addiction, this is when shortcuts shouldn’t be taken. While considering the upfront costs, it should be remembered the process of life-altering inpatient rehabilitation will inevitably save you money down the road. The cost of addiction is immeasurable, in terms of broken relationships, lost career goals, legal, and medical bills.
And, fortunately, as people begin to understand more about addiction, it is viewed as an illness and as a result there are an increased number of financing options available to people. Seasons accepts most PPO insurance plans and financial institutions understand how deeply important it is for people to have access to high quality inpatient rehab. They will work with people to help them with financing. The bottom line is that the most important consideration for attending rehab should be how deeply you want to recover from your addiction and start living the life you were meant to live.
What To Bring
Seasons will provide you with all the amenities you will need, and please keep it mind that to ensure no drugs or alcohol are brought in, we advise you to only bring basic supplies, such as clothing and personal hygiene items. At Seasons you will be served delicious and healthy food, and will be in a warm, supportive environment where your only concern and focus should be on recovery.
But for people who will miss their family or other loved ones, you can bring photos or other keepsakes as inspiration and reminders of why you are choosing a life of sobriety. You should view inpatient rehab as an opportunity to have a respite from your everyday life, and that it’s ok to put your outside life in the back of your mind. At Seasons you will be undergoing intensive treatment to put you back on the right path.
Anyone who has ever loved or cared about someone knows how hard it is for someone to finally admit that addiction is a major problem. And in some cases, the problem becomes so extreme and out-of-control that it truly becomes a matter of life-and-death to convince that individual to attend an inpatient rehab center. This is when an intervention might need to be staged.
An intervention is when people orchestrate a meeting with an individual they believe to be ruining one’s life because of an addiction. The addict will be confronted by many close people, who will recite to the individual why addiction is so destructive. They may issue ultimatums, and the meeting is a highly charged and emotional event, so having a professional present to supervise the meeting is also very important. At heart, an intervention will force an individual to truly have to face the costs of addiction, such as:
- Losing custody of children
- Being cut off from friends and family
- Facing the devastating health risks
An interventionist will generally meet with the people staging the intervention beforehand and create a plan so that the intervention has the highest chance of success. If you believe that a loved one is in need of an intervention, you can contact Seasons to find out more about starting the process. By doing do, you may actually save someone’s life.
Another huge benefit of receiving treatment at Seasons, is that we understand that the journey of recovery continues after the inpatient rehab has ended. This aftercare can be an extremely stressful time for someone who is trying to transition back into their life that they once lived. In essence, one has to figure out how to re-live a life without the crutch of addiction. This is why Seasons offers aftercare support.
Patients will still have access to the counselors they met with and formed a bond with after leaving. They can also continue to integrate their families into their counseling, and stay actively involved with the addiction therapy community. By having this support, this will make the transition to the outside world less stressful and alien.
And in addition to aftercare, a patient can also enlist the help of a sober companion. A sober companion is someone who spends time with a patient during their regular life to get them acclimated to life without addiction. They will offer advice, support, and help them get involved in local addiction support groups. Many sober companions have had problems with addiction themselves and can offer invaluable guidance and insight to their client. Seasons proudly offers the services of a sober companion at the request of the client.
Addiction is something that you can and will overcome with the right treatment and dedication. Seasons has a high success rate, because we view our patients as individuals who deserve one-on-one counseling, as well as deserving of a long-term commitment from us to their sobriety.
