Recovery for Women at the Latigo House

Women’s Recovery Center

Malibu Beach Recovery Centers (MBRC) at Latigo House provides integrative and customized treatment for alcohol and drug addiction, trauma and other co-occurring disorders specifically tailored for the unique needs of women.

Gender-Specific Addiction Treatment for Women

At Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, we strongly believe that gender-specific addiction treatment is most effective during recovery and rehabilitation. Men and women have unique personality traits, role responsibilities, and life pressures that affect and propel addiction in very distinct ways.

For this reason, all levels of care at Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, from residential to outpatient, treat men and women independently to create the most comfortable environment for both sexes. In facilitating rehab for women, our highest priority is creating a safe space for women to share their story, find their voice, develop tools for recovery, and foster hope.

Women And Addiction

Addiction affects everyone regardless of education, social class, and gender. For women, however, addiction often carries an even greater stigma. Women who battle substance abuse are under even more scrutiny and judgment as mothers, spouses, and daughters. At Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, we know that addiction is a disease of the brain, and it does not allow room for choice. Women often come to rehabilitation with immense feelings of toxic shame, guilt, and brokenness for the wreckage that addiction has caused in their lives, their closest relationships and their jobs. It’s important for every woman to understand that she is not her addiction and there is nothing to be ashamed of. We are all human.

Women often come to rehab facing addiction, as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other trauma-related issues, anxiety, depression, domestic violence, abuse, sexual trauma, or other co-occurring conditions. At Malibu Beach Recovery Centers, we want every woman to know that she is not alone in her journey. We empower women to separate themselves from their addiction, and rebuild self-worth, self-love, and hope from the ground up. There is hope for every woman to overcome addiction, achieve sobriety, and transform her life.


Malibu Beach Recovery Centers Saved My Life

The Latigo House

The Latigo House is a beautiful and restorative location where women can heal from addiction, trauma and other disorders in a relaxing, low-stimulation environment. Treatment is highly personalized, with only three clients per therapist, enabling us to provide the optimal combination of therapies most conducive to each client’s recovery. Specialized, gender-specific modalities and groups such as “Seeking Safety” for trauma and addiction and “Transformation & Breaking Barriers” are designed to meet the unique needs of women.

Compassionate and Caring Staff

What makes Malibu Beach Recovery Centers truly unique is our family setting and the bonds that our clients forge with our therapists and directors. Our homelike environment at the Latigo House creates an intimate space for our treatment specialists to get to know clients on a deep level to truly understand their stories, their goals, and their recovery journey. As a family, we model healthy living together.

As human beings, we all experience grief, loss, shame, guilt and anxiety – it is what makes us human. Our treatment specialists channel this empathy to be able to completely align with clients and meet them where they are. Every woman at Malibu Beach Recovery Centers is treated with love and respect so she can feel accepted and transform her life.

Integrated Approach

Our philosophy at Malibu Beach Recovery Centers is that healing and the process of recovery can take multiple forms that will be different for every woman. We offer integrated therapies that target all pathways that affect the self – mind, body, and spirit.
Some of the clinical therapies we offer include group sessions, psychotherapy, process groups, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), 12-step work, and RecoveryMind curriculum. Our body-mind exercises include yoga, mindfulness training, breath work, and personal training. Every woman’s recovery journey is different, and we offer whatever fellowship and recovery therapy is needed for her healing.

Change Your Life

Any woman out there who is suffering from addiction, depression, anxiety, or PTSD, there is nothing to be afraid of. Please reach out for help – it will be the best thing you will ever do for yourself and your family and friends. Give yourself exactly what you deserve and that is a beautiful life.
