Cliffside is an elite residential Malibu drug treatment center located in Southern California, currently seeking 3 full time licensed mental health clinicians to join the team at our world-renowned facility.
The right person for this position will have a profound knowledge of Cliffside's drug treatment philosophy, including facility with the Stages of Change transformation model and how it applies to addiction treatment and recovery. Ideally, have an approach to psychotherapy from a transtheoretical perspective, choosing treatment approaches that most fit the client’s needs, understand addiction as a behavioral disorder rather than a disease and be thoroughly fluent in the neuroscience that backs up that claim.

Cliffside is looking for team players who work easily with others; who provide different types of treatment to clients – from orthomolecular medicine to yoga to acupuncture. Previous experience in an environment similar to our Malibu Rehab Facility is preferred. Training in EMDR, CBT, DBT, and other schools of psychotherapy is helpful. Experience with co-occurring disorders, particularly anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorders, and other issues is required.
Primary responsibilities include: mental health assessments; crisis intervention; individual and group psychotherapy; interventions related to substance use; response to clients with urgent and emergent needs, both at the facility and on call; and ability to work with other professionals to provide a full range of treatment in an exclusive Malibu Drug Rehab.
Minimum qualifications: Licensed or Intern registration from Board of Behavioral Sciences (vis.
