Patient’s Care Comes First –
Nov. 16, 2018 – The Southern California blaze has also affected hundreds of patients battling personal demons. Many have been moved from tranquil facilities to sister facilities, Airbnb rentals and hotels. The operators of many rehab centers, unable to provide proper treatment after shutting down, have transferred clients to competitors. Malibu has one of the largest concentrations of addiction treatment centers and sober living homes in the United States, with at least one per square mile, according to data from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Luxury properties in the area, part of a coastal strip known as Rehab Riviera, often attract paparazzi hoping for a glimpse of wealthy clients like Ben Affleck and Britney Spears.
