Drug and alcohol addiction is one of the biggest obstacles a person can face in their lifetime. And while many rehabilitation centers have sprung up to combat the problem, only a select few have proven even moderately successful. In a recent poll, 100 former addicts who received treatment from multiple institutions were asked which treatment facilities they would recommend. Serenity Malibu, led by CEO Don Varden, topped the list.
Those who participated were asked to rate treatment centers in several categories – affordability, techniques and grounds among them. In each of these categories, Serenity Malibu ranked well ahead of the curve, leading to it being announced one of the best overall rehab centers in the United States.
When Don Varden first conceived Serenity Malibu and its sister location Seasons in Malibu, he set out to open a treatment center that would place the individual needs of the patient above all else. Thus, both institutions encourage clients to meet with counselors in a one-on-one setting. It is a proven fact that patients feel less stress, and subsequently more confident, in these environments. Going further, Serenity Malibu encourages patients to only participate in activities that interest them. By doing so, former addicts are free to explore new, healthier passions.
Varden also wanted to provide clients with an environment that promoted peace and healing. As one participant stated, “It’s hard to kick the habit when you’re staring at four walls all day. At Serenity Malibu I felt like I was at a five star resort, not some dingy rehab clinic.”
Participants claimed that while a professional staff and healthy environment were important factors to look for in a rehab center, they would all mean nothing if the cost of the program didn’t fit within their budget. It is in this area that Serenity Malibu really shined. Don Varden’s labor of love was rated the most affordable drug and alcohol treatment center in the Malibu area. As plainly stated by one recovering addict, “At Serenity Malibu, you get the most bang for your buck, period.”
