What Makes Cliffside Better

Our Approach Cliffside Malibu is a world class luxury drug and alcohol treatment center. We want you to recover for good, and we do that with seven major factors. 1. We Stand By Our Commitment To Your Success. Our main goal is: We only want you to come to treatment once. 2. We Recognize The Root Cause Of Addiction As Pain/Trauma. Most treatment programs are based on the 12 Step Model. While 12 Step programs have largely been the go-to way to recover from addiction for over 75 years, the model does not address the underlying causes of addiction. While we use 12 Steps as an adjunct to other forms of therapy, we work to help through pre-existing traumas that are the root cause of addiction. 3. We Use The Stages Of Change Model As The Foundation Of Our Treatment Protocol. Every person who enters Cliffside Malibu is assessed and placed in one of the Stages of Change. More on that below. 4. We Do Not Believe Or Treat You As If You Are Diseased. Addiction is largely touted as a disease that cannot be cured, and only managed. We do not focus on what is wrong with you – we focus on what is right with you and help bring those qualities to the forefront. 5. We Understand And Use The Neuroscience Of Addiction To Help People Recover. Addiction is a science: not only does it affect your brain psychologically, it can chemically alter it. Once you are able to address the science of addiction in this way, you will be able to see substantial change in your life. We use neuroscience to ta...

We describe a case of a 49-year-old, male, Caucasian, pharmaco-resistant patient with a recurrent major depressive disorder, who developed acute pulmonary embolism during a course of inpatient right-unilateral ultra-brief electroconvulsive therapy. After the stabilization of his somatic condition, we were able to safely continue with further ECT applications until his mood normalized and he was able to return to his normal life outside the hospital. Case reports on this topic are scarce – our article demonstrates that electroconvulsive treatment, with proper precautionary measures (anti-aggregative or anti-coagulatio...
