An exclusive residential treatment center in the heart of Malibu, The Meadows Malibu has just 12 beds, which means our clients receive fully individualized treatment and the undivided attention of our staff.



The Meadow Malibu offers customized residential treatment for drug and alcohol addiction using a dual diagnosis approach that goes beyond physical symptoms to address the underlying issues and set you up for lasting recovery.

Our Approach

Our Approach

Our primary goal for treatment is always to help clients find freedom from drugs or alcohol and provide them with the tools they need to reach new levels of health, happiness and success in recovery.



Addiction is an insidious disease, and when you or a loved one needs help it can be hard to know where to turn. We understand. That’s why we have highly trained admissions specialists ready to walk you through a free, brief, and confidential screening.




Healing in the Heart of Malibu

Our exclusive, boutique-style residential treatment program addresses substance use disorders, mental health issues, and trauma for whole-person healing.

Help for a Wide Range of Issues

Substance use treatment isn’t just about quitting. Drug and alcohol addiction are complex disorders that are often intertwined with mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and emotional trauma. True healing comes from treating not just the symptoms but getting to the root causes to achieve lasting recovery.
