Avalon Malibu

Avalon Malibu was founded in 2013 with the aim of supporting adults suffering from substance abuse issues and mental health disorders. Since its founding, Avalon Malibu has worked with a range of clients dealing with challenging issues. The luxury rehab is situated in one of California’s most beautiful upscale cities, Malibu, and offers clients views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A stay at the luxury rehab gives you the chance to overcome substance abuse and mental health issues thanks to traditional and cutting-edge treatment.


Avalon Malibu is overseen by CEO Hillary Berens. Berens is an experienced mental health professional that has worked for Avalon Malibu in various roles from the beginning. Since 2019, Berens has been the rehab’s CEO, sharing her expert knowledge with staff, clients, and others.


You have the option of two different houses for a residential stay. The Cottage House focuses on substance abuse while the other residential property, the Grand House, is for clients with psychiatric needs. These mental health needs include depression, personality disorders, and anxiety. The cost of treatment depends on which house you book for a stay.


Avalon Malibu is a licensed Addiction Residential Treatment center and provides detox services. It is also a licensed Mental Health Residential Treatment, Partial Hospitalization Program, and Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program provider.

What is a day like at Avalon Malibu Rehab?


A stay at the Cottage House provides residents with treatment for addictive issues. Alcoholism, addiction to opiates, cocaine, marijuana, and other drugs are treated at the Cottage House. Each client has their very own personalized treatment plan. You may undergo detox, education, therapy, family integration treatment, holistic therapy, and much more during a stay at the Cottage House. Avalon Malibu also offers 12-step and SMART Recovery meetings although they are not required for residents.


You will undergo individual therapy a minimum of three times per week. You may also under go couples and family therapy during the week. What makes Avalon Malibu a popular rehab destination is its variety of therapy options. There are Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs along with residential rehab.


Avalon Malibu’s range of therapies and treatment includes CBT, DBT, EMDR, 12-step, SMART Recovery, cutting-edge, and eastern medicines. There is a lot to choose from during a stay at Avalon Malibu, giving you the chance to combine rehab therapies and treatment into a plan that works perfectly for you.


One of the aspects that makes Avalon Malibu different than other luxury rehabs is its Sanctuary Model. The Sanctuary Model focuses on stress reduction and lifestyle change. Part of the therapy is getting people involved with outdoor activities, which are plentiful in Malibu thanks to the beautiful year-round weather.


Regardless of the property you select at Avalon Malibu, you will either stay in shared or private accommodation at Avalon Malibu. You will be pampered with luxury during a stay. A gourmet chef is onsite to prepare nutritious meals for clients. The Cottage House provides guests with a swimming pool while the Grand House has lush gardens and a spa. A full-time housekeeping staff means you won’t have any chores to complete during the stay.

Review of Avalon Malibu

Avalon Malibu Accommodation


Depending on the treatment you require, your residential stay will either be in the Cottage House or the Grand House. The Cottage House is the residence for clients seeking help with substance abuse and addiction. It offers you the chance to detox upon arrival before fully engaging in the treatment program. The Cottage House overlooks the Pacific Ocean and its balconies are ideal for providing time to reflect on your recovery. You will find a swimming pool at the Cottage House to spend your downtime in and around. The inside of the house is homely and cozy, perfect for relaxing when you are not in therapy.


The Grand House is the residence for mental health treatment. It is just as the name implies, grand. Both residences offer shared and private bedrooms. The houses are co-ed, but men and women will not share bedrooms. You will have access to a private beach regardless of which residence you stay at. The seclusion of the private beach makes Avalon Malibu ideal for individuals seeking some alone time or anonymity.


Gourmet chefs are employed by the rehab to prepare healthy meals for clients each day. Clients may undergo nutritional counseling and restoration during their stay.
