EVIDENCE-BASED TREATMENT

 

Simply put, evidence-based treatment relies on well-researched facts. By relying on data gathered from repeatedly testing different treatment options, treatment protocols are based on what works over time with a variety of subjects and situations. According to reports, only 10% of all U.S. drug rehab facilities utilize some form of evidence-based therapy, and only half of those have doctors on staff. At Malibu Rehab, our team of credentialed staff and doctors use state of the art medications and therapy modalities that are scientifically proven to be effective in the treatment of addiction. Our treatment success rates offer proof that it works.

With literally thousands of alcohol and drug addiction counselors, treatment centers and self-help groups with different treatment approaches, there is a huge disconnect in addiction treatment and what the research shows. Research from the American Psychiatric Association indicates that pharmacological interventions, such as methadone or naltrexone are effective in reducing the cravings and negative consequences of alcohol and opiate abuse. However, medications are not often used due to cost, a lack of understanding or negative attitude about using medication to treat addiction, and the availability of staff doctors to prescribe medication.

We are proud to be among the elite list of providers offering evidence-based treatment today.
