SOBA Recovery Center

22669 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, California, 90265
SOBA Recovery Center believes that one size does not fit all when it comes to treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. The residential rehab offers a variety holistic therapy methods, as well as individualized treatment plans designed to uncover the core issues that contribute to substance abuse. Once the causes of addiction have been successfully treated, clients are more likely to stay sober and better able to solidify the coping skills they’ve learned to navigate life without alcohol and/or drugs.

  • SOBA Drug Treatment

    At SOBA, we have separated ourselves from other drug treatment centers with our belief that addiction is not only a disease- that it is also a side effect of very powerful underlying issues. We know that in order to successfully treat your addiction, we must work with you to address and treat those problems. Our renowned staff of therapists, counselors, personal trainers and medical experts will guide you through a unique process of healing the mind, body, and spirit.
  • SOBA's Unique Alcohol Treatment

    At SOBA, we believe the factors that led you to drink in the first place are as much a crucial part of the disease as the dependency on alcohol itself. In order to best understand this, we can compare this to chronic back pain: if you only take medication to relive the pain, the underlying issues causing the pain will never be addressed. Therefore, is just the "broken" back the disease, or the pain you feel from it? Or both? The same can be applied to addiction. Alcohol treatment that only addresses the cessation of drinking ultimately does nothing to address the true disease. Ultimately, Emotional Sobriety is the goal of our treatment plan.
