Therapy is a fundamental component of the treatment that you receive at LifeSync Malibu Healing Center. We realize that people present to our center with a number of issues that are either related to their drug and alcohol use, related to dysfunctional thoughts and emotions, or have their origins in the past traumas or abuses. We realize that by processing through painful memories and issues that have been historically difficult to cope with, our clients find freedom and liberation from their past and leave these more troublesome aspects of their lives behind for good.
At LifeSync Malibu Healing Center we provide intensive one on one therapy at least twice a week. Clients may have more sessions at the therapist’s discretion or as needed. Each session occurs in a private and secluded setting that is designed for maximum healing. All sessions are highly focused on your recovery. We believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is sacrosanct and to be truly effective, requires a co-collaboration in delving into the various areas of need and addiction. Each client starts their process with a comprehensive intake that is designed to collect all information regarding your particular difficulties and defines specific needs for each client. Based on this information, Dr. Booth will put together a personalized and unique treatment opportunity for you. Dr. Booth is a Board-Certified Addiction Medicine specialist. He will design and provide for you a comprehensive treatment plan. Unlike practically all other treatment centers, LifeSync Malibu provides a physician created and physician led treatment program from the beginning to the end. Not only will Dr. Booth care for all your medical needs while you are here, he will work closely with all therapists and counselors who are caring for you to ensure that you receive the finest care available. He will make sure that all along the way you or your loved one will have all your specific needs met in order to maximize your healing and ultimate recovery.
Group therapy is another mainstay of therapy offered at LifeSync Malibu Healing Center and it augments the highly effective individual therapy you will receive concurrently. Dr. Booth often gets questions from clients about doing group therapy. One of the main concerns people have about group therapy is that sometimes clients feel reluctant to open up about personal things or issues. This is very understandable and yet, the power of our group therapy sessions is so important that we believe that it is an integral part of their recovery. All group therapy sessions are highly confidential and led by experienced moderators who are licensed and have specialized knowledge and expertise in their areas of focus. At LifeSync Malibu Healing Center, we bring in outside moderators to team up with our in-house clinical team. This allows us to provide a fresh, vibrant and effective group dynamic that allows our clients to grow and change as they navigate through their treatment experience. The results speak for themselves. Clients often start to lose the feeling of being alone and start to develop meaningful relationships with others for the first time. We strive to ensure that each client is heard and has a voice that is accepted without judgment. We want to ensure that the hurts, fears, aches and pains of our clients are heard. As such, this environment fosters a setting for maximum healing.
Family Therapy is another powerful intervention for the recovering addict or alcoholic. We realize that addiction and alcoholism does not happen in a vacuum and often-times, the people that are hurt the most by an addict’s behavior is the family members. At LifeSync Malibu Healing Center, we know that healing from your wounds often involves and is aided by family healing. For each client we make sure that we develop a comprehensive plan for family engagement. In many cases, families can reunite and develop strong bonds of healing. In other cases, family relationships are broken and there are hurt feelings all around. Whatever your specific situation is, we will work with you to provide effective healing so that you can live the best sober life possible. In short, LifeSync Malibu Healing Center offers a wide variety of proven therapeutic interventions for every client that comes in. Each client treatment plan is developed by Dr. Booth in order to provide the maximum amount of psychoeducation, relapse prevention, addiction medicine and healing in order to ensure the highest degree of personal growth and long-term sobriety.
