Dealing With The Perils Of Drug Addiction in America
'It's one thing for a drug addiction treatment center to pay lip service to the importance of privacy. It's quite another for that facility to live up to its own promises. In fact, many of the most "exclusive" celebrity rehabs in Los Angeles actively leak information about high-profile clients to the media in order to generate free publicity. As should go without saying, these institutions can't be trusted to promote meaningful and lasting wellness.
For recovery patients and their families, say Cliffside administrators, that sort of failure is unacceptable...(more)'

Understanding The Detox Process
'...The most effective drug detox center is the one that understands the importance of long-term healing. Drug detox and recovery doesn't happen overnight, after all. On the contrary, detox patients need intensive support over the course of many months in order to get better. In the end, anything less is and can only be a recipe for failure...(more)'

Holistic Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center in California
'...Cliffside Malibu's commitment to the long-term health of its clients is beyond question. But not all drug treatment centers share Cliffside's philosophy. In fact, many of the most well-known clinics in the Los Angeles area focus almost exclusively on the short-term successes of their patients-with obvious and often disastrous consequences for those patients' long-term health.
Cliffside administrators, for their part, have always believed that those sorts of deficiencies are absolutely unacceptable...(more)'

I was immediately embraced and counseled on the phone by Jay, who showed genuine concern. I was not in a proper state to make all the necessary arrangements, so Jay took charge, letting me know what to do, and shouldering much of the paper load for me. When I arrived in LA, Andy met me at the airport and drove me in to Cliffside, keeping me at ease and being understanding and hopeful when I was afraid. I don’t remember everyone who was there when I checked in, but I recall Dia being a smiling and gentle presence throughout my intake process.
I won’t go through each phase of my rehabilitation there in such detail, merely to say that once I had recovered my wits after detoxification, I was embraced by the friendly staff and led through the process with diligence, care, and mostly individualized treatment. Conflicts arose, from time to time, as they will, but they were handled with aplomb and courtesy. I specifically found superb counsel from Frank, Mark, Dia and Denny, but every residential advisor and staff person made a positive mark.
The therapists were all remarkable. Georgina and Robyn are clearly intelligent, kind, caring professionals who put the recovery of their charges foremost. Their group sessions were thoughtfully prepared and well executed; a number of times I was befuddled by all of the emotions flying around the room, but it was not only handled well, but with grace and care. By the end of the sessions, I was fuddled once more. As for Patricia, superlatives fail. I would say that she is honorificabilitudinitatibus, but I fear I might be accused of being over-intellectually sesquipedalian. Nor do I wish to wax pleonastic. I say this: there is no therapist I would rather entrust with the care of a loved one; I felt cared for and connected; I was dealt with transparently, and bluntly when necessary; I felt, frankly, loved...(more)'

Those principles, in turn, are the bedrock of Cliffside Malibu's treatment philosophy.
Cliffside Malibu is respected both for the quality of its caregivers and the elegance of its amenities.

'...Prescription drug addiction is personal problem. By the same token, prescription drug addiction programs must entail a private process. The best prescription drug addiction center is one which most effectively shields their clients from public scrutiny. In the end, any inferior standard of care is simply unacceptable.
Those principles, in turn, are the bedrock of Cliffside Malibu's treatment philosophy.
With its expert caregivers and posh amenities, Cliffside Malibu is a world-class institution. The prescription drug addiction center has always catered to an elite clientele. Now Cliffside is expanding its mission, with the goal of delivering the best care on the planet to those individuals who need it.

"Drug addiction treatment clinics are most successful when drug addicts feel wholly comfortable in their healing environment," said Cliffside Malibu Program Director. "It's our role as a luxury drug addiction treatment center specializing in such areas as marijuana addiction to meet each and every need of drug addicts, with everything from gourmet meals to high thread-count sheets. We believe that our record of success proves the effectiveness of our strategies."
Cliffside's competitors, meanwhile, can hardly speak so glowingly about their own treatment efforts.
It's easy for a drug addiction treatment center to pay lip service to the importance of luxury. It's harder for that facility to live up to its own standards. The unfortunate truth is that many of the most "exclusive" rehabs for drug addicts in Los Angeles appear far more elegant in their advertising brochures than they are in real life. As should go without saying, these institutions routinely fall short of the recovery promises they make to their clients...' (Cliffside Malibu)

COREY HAIM Died of drug over dose or that is what the latest reports are saying. His mother says that its not drugs but an enlarged heart and fluid on the lungs that killed him.
When ever a celebrity dies if there are drugs anywhere around or if at any time in there life they had a problem with drugs... Then when they die its DRUGS!!! Now it could be said that to assume its drugs is unfair and rude. But the truth is that if someone has had a problem with drugs in the past, it can come up again at anytime.
A while ago I would have said that this statement was not justified and that you can't judge someones present by their past. But I have had several friends that were heavily into drugs in there past and then they became clean for years. Then out of the blue they started doing drugs again.
I know that not every one has a relapse.... however that is why they say in meetings Hi my name is so and so and I am an alcoholic or drug addiction. Because even if a person no longer does drugs they once did and the urge is always there.
I hate that drugs can ruin our lives.

Here is the story. I found it at this website
I don’t know how to begin to thank you and your colleauges at Cliffside Malibu for helping to return our son to us. Only you – and anyone reading this letter whose son or daughter is addicted can possibly understand the pain, the nightmares and sense of hopelessness all parents suffer watching their son or daughter slowly kill themselves. For six years, we tried everything in our power and spent more money than I ever earned trying to get our 17 year old son sober: six different drug rehabs in the belief that finally, this one would work; countless therapists; two interventions and finally a rapid detox program that was supposed to eradicate the craving for most drugs. Nothing worked. So these years were filled with brief moments of elation, thinking our son finally licked the problem only to go through the horrible realization that, once again, we were back to square one. Each time he replapsed, it only got worse: he stole, lied, was verbally abusive and totalled three cars. Even the therapists gave up on our son. But we didn’t. It took many drug rehabs, many attempts, many fact finding missions to finally find Cliffside Malibu, the right place for our son. Sadly, all the brochures for drug rehabs and sober living say all the right things – things parents want to hear and believe in.
I can only hope most parents searching for help don’t have to go through the drug rehab journey I went through. Which is why I take great joy in writing this letter, and saying to any parent reading this, to take a look at Cliffside, talk to Richard or Jay, listen to them, pay a visit and seriously consider sending your precious cargo there. The physical setting is beautiful, calm, peaceful and condusive to recovery. And the staff knows what they are doing. They have a simple but profound understanding of the nature and effects of addiction. They know how to modify the dysfunctional behavior that is an integral part of all addicts. My son now has over a year of sobriety – something I never thought possible. It’s what I asked the people at Cliffside to give him: Just one year and he’d have a shot at living. They gave it to him.
* Today Manny’s son has 2 1/2 years of sobriety.
I thought this was amazing. I hope we can hear more and more stories like this one.
The second is that I think we relate to celebrities. I think that we see them so much and we watch them all the time on TV, movies, etc... I know that from personal experience that I have some shows that I always watch and the actors become friends or like family. I know that I talk about TV actors from shows like Bones, House, Clean House, etc... I say things about them like I would a family member or a friend.
So that is why I made this blog. Because I think that drugs have touch a lot of our lives either from personal experiences or through friends or family. Now through talking about and hearing about who is on drugs or the latest celebrity drug gossip. I hope it will help so we know that we are not alone and hopefully we all learn something. Maybe share a few laughs, tears or something special.
