Non 12-Step Programs
Journey Malibu and Smart Recovery

At Journey Malibu rehab center they have found that the most effective treatment plans have the ability to evolve with the individual needs of each client. Their holistic approach focuses on the whole individual – mind, body, and soul. The Journey Malibu healers and therapists come together with a common commitment to heal the entire person. At Journey Malibu’s holistic drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, they understand that the 12-step programs do not work for everyone, which is why they offer alternative treatment plans. They ensure that their clients are able to attend non 12-step self-help meetings if desired. The professionals at Journey Malibu will work with insurance companies in a manner that will implement non 12-step recovery programs into their clients’ treatment plans and insurance coverage.

At Journey Malibu’s luxury drug and alcohol rehab center, they have found that their clients who are not interested in the 12-steps find support in self-help meetings, like those associated with Smart Recovery. The Smart Recovery self-help meetings are based on the latest scientific research and are the leading self-empowering addiction recovery support groups. Smart Recovery is a four point program that includes 1) building and maintaining motivation, 2) coping with urges, 3) managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and 4) living a balanced life. Journey Malibu’s holistic drug and alcohol rehab provides similar goals for their non-12 step clients. Those same goals can be implemented into their non-12 step clients’ treatment plans based on their individual needs and interests.

The Smart Recovery face-to-face meetings are not only located in Malibu, but are located world-wide. Their clients can become familiar with the Smart Recovery programs and continue to attend meetings upon their return home, wherever that may be. In addition to meetings, Smart Recovery offers daily on-line meetings, on-line message boards, and a 24 hour chat room that their clients often take advantage of and put to good use. Smart Recovery works well with the treatment programs at Journey Malibu’s holistic drug and alcohol rehab center because both are based on discovering self-empowerment, self-reliance, self-directed change and the power of choice.
