SOBA Malibu was founded by Greg Hannley, who wanted to create a safe and supportive environment for struggling addicts.
The main therapy focus in SOBA rehab center is on the cause of the addiction.
Rooms or Sobanas are not luxurious, but they are comfortable, tastefully decorated and well equipped. There are only rooms with two beds in SOBA Malibu rehab center.
On this 10-acres property, patients can enjoy a Zen garden, tennis court, home theater, soaking tubs, resting areas with flat screen TVs, and a swimming pool.
SOBA Malibu: Treatment Programs and Staff
Individual therapy is not conducted on an everyday basis, but on the other hand, medical exams are regular. Comprehensive screening and psychological evaluations are conducted in order to create an individualized treatment plan.
As previously said, the main goal of the treatment is to determine the underlying factors that may have caused the addiction, whether there are any other mental health problem such as PTSD, anxiety or some physical problems (pain or hormonal imbalance).
Staff in SOBA center puts an accent on peer support, and that is why there are so many common areas where clients can spend time together. In addition, residents attend local 12-step meetings in order to create a strong peer to peer support.
The nutrition in the SOBA treatment center is based on low- glycemic diet. Also, meals are prepared by a professional chef according to nutrition plan created by Robert Ferguson.
There are no medical doctors in the center, but many marriage and family therapists, psychologists, social workers, and alcohol and drug abuse counselors who work with clients on a regular basis.
The staff- to- client ratio is one-to-two.
SOBA Malibu also has an outpatient (sober living) program for clients who have finished their inpatient part of the treatment.
