Located in Malibu, California, Sol Sanctuary is a luxury behavioral health facility. It offers flexible treatment programs for clients in recovery for addiction and co-occurring disorders. Founded in 2017, Sol Sanctuary creates individualized treatment plans that draw on a range of techniques from both Eastern and Western medicine.
Accommodations and Food
The facility itself is a spacious, villa-style home with a total of six beds in private rooms. All bedrooms are different but each one is beautifully decorated and comes with a queen or king-sized bed. Other amenities in these rooms include tasteful decorations, plush comforters, in-room TVs with cable and Netflix, desks, dressers and nightstands.
The home overlooks the beach. There are outdoor patio areas for group therapy. Residents also enjoy an outdoor pool, spacious common areas, an on-site gym and sauna and a fully-equipped kitchen. Throughout their stay, the kitchen team serves clients three meals a day plus snacks. The staff chef, Jared Simons, generally prepares plant-based dishes using organic ingredients from an on-site vegetable garden.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, all clients go through an intake and assessment process to help the clinicians understand their medical history and to determine their care plans. While there are doctors overseeing the program, those in need of detox can do so on-site before continuing on to treatment. Once stabilized, all clients can expect both individual and group therapy with evidence-based treatment practices including CBT and DBT. Still, one of Sol Sanctuary’s major focuses is on integrating Eastern and spiritual teachings. Some of these methods include shamanic soul work therapy, Native American-style sweat lodges and fire ceremonies, yoga, art therapy, sound baths and IV vitamin therapy. While 12-step recovery can be part of these programs, it is not always required. As mentioned, dual diagnosis support and medication management are available as well.
The staff at Sol Sanctuary consists of doctors, personal trainers, residential administrators, life coaches, spiritual counselors and additional Master’s-level counselors.
As the program emphasizes environmental sustainability, the facility also collects all its water from the surrounding atmosphere for clients and staff to drink. As a truly bespoke program, many other holistic and alternative health services are available including equine therapy, chiropractics, acupuncture and massage therapy. The facilities on-site also include a cryotherapy area as well as an infrared sauna. Once residents complete a program, they can work with staff members to develop step-down aftercare plans.
All told, Sol Sanctuary is a highly individualized residential treatment program with a major emphasis on holistic and alternative care. In addition to its evidence-based therapies, clients also receive nutritional guidance, spiritual aid and plenty of time to relax and recenter themselves. Though the facility does not accept insurance, it can send clients a bill to submit to their insurance companies as necessary. While the cost of these programs is likely to vary by the services chosen and the length of stay, Sol Sanctuary remains a forward-thinking and innovative residential program for adults struggling with addiction.
