Healthy Lifestyles Program - Physical Fun Activities
At Malibu Horizon, our clients learn a new, healthy, active lifestyle. Maintaining recovery is a lifetime commitment. Our Healthy Lifestyles Program facilitates a return to the “everyday world” long before the client leaves the program. On Sundays, the staff takes the clients on therapeutic outings. We visit places like the Getty Museum, and we take walks in downtown Santa Barbara. Clients receive " talking and walking therapy " from Dr. Weyland while experiencing sobriety in the real world. We also take our clients to restaurants so they can encounter and experience social situations, without drinking alcohol. For many clients, this is a new experience and it’s an important part of therapy.
Spending time near the ocean is naturally calming and an ideal way to get in touch with your own rhythms. On alternate days when you're not in the health club, our Activities Director takes our clients to the beach.
Clients take walks or jog, swim, snorkel or just relax in the sunshine. Clients can play volleyball, go for walks, do yoga stretching exercises and a lot more. Time at the beautiful Pacific Ocean help our clients to learn to relax and enjoy time outdoors. Swimming and skin diving are also part of oceanfront activities. All activities at the Ocean are very safe, closely supervised and orchestrated.
Here, clients learn to live and thrive in a clean and sober environment. As your health improves, your thinking will become clearer. Your patterns of behavior will alter in positive ways, ensuring successful, long-term recovery. Incorporating healthy habits into a client's daily routine is a very important element of our comprehensive treatment program. On alternate days, clients attend our Health Club for physical exercise. Each client is encouraged to work at his/her own pace and level of ability. Our trainers are readily available to assist in developing individual fitness programs and coaching. The health club is fully equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment including treadmills, spinning gear, mats and weight machines. A healthy lifestyle includes effective time management and a balanced combination of physical exercise, entertainment, hobbies, outdoor activities, as well as eating, sleeping and positive personal interactions each day.
We help you learn how to be energetic, naturally
Our attentive staff guides our clients to wellness with a combination of biological, psychological and social-conditioning processes to successfully treat all aspects of their addiction. Each day is a balance of therapies, group activities, fitness classes, golf, hiking, yoga, music, bowling, and other adventures. We also offer unique therapeutic activities like equine and art therapy which allow our clients to tap into their creative talents and have fun in recovery. At Malibu Horizon, we believe that recovery involves healing the body, mind, and spirit. Our Healthy Lifestyles is a holistic wellness program that will help to condition and nourish both your body and your soul. Our luxurious facilities and beautifully landscaped grounds provide a serene and peaceful environment which encourages healing on many levels. Our comprehensive treatment program is designed to incorporate healthy activities into each day. Many people who have abused drugs or alcohol have also neglected their personal health. By providing nutritious and deliciously prepared food, and a variety of fun recreational and fitness activities, we help our clients feel good again.
An essential part of learning to live a healthy new lifestyle is proper nutrition. Our program is designed to help you feel strong and energetic and incorporates nutritious food that is lovingly prepared, tastes great and helps your body detoxify. Malibu Horizon provides healthy nutritious meals every day for each client. Clients are always asked if they have special dietary needs or favorite foods that we need to be aware of. Each meal is beautifully prepared from the freshest ingredients. Each meal is carefully planned to include the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals for maintaining good health.
Some of our clients are avid golfers. At Malibu Horizon, one of the goals is to encourage our clients to pursue healthy activities, that are not associated with drug or alcohol abuse. For those who like to play golf, we will make the necessary accommodations for you to play some golf while you are here. So, if you're one of "them", bring your clubs. There are some beautiful golf courses in the area.
