Job Description

Malibu Beach Recovery Center Philosophy

The Malibu Beach Recovery Center (MBRC) program for the treatment of comorbidity, addictive diseases and lifestyle disorders is a client-centered, holistic, and neuro-bio-psycho-social system of individualized treatment based upon the evolving field of neuroscience. The MBRC system utilizes a supplement called SynaptaGenX in combination with carefully selected yoga-type exercises and a low glycemic diet to create a solid foundation for long-term recovery. The neuro-biological approach restores and balances the chemistry of the brain, raises dopamine levels, and rejuvenates the body’s natural reward system. This allows clients to quickly and efficiently achieve the full benefit of daily psycho-educational, process and experiential groups, individual and family therapy, and 12-Step counseling and fellowship.
