The Canyon with Foundations Recovery Network

It was an incredible night at George’s at the Cove where I had the pleasure of attending a dinner hosted by Jillian McCarney from Foundations Recovery Network. Jillian is lovely, extremely passionate about recovery, and fantastic at creating a sense of community in this field.

She introduced us to Kathleen Bigsby, CEO of The Canyon in Malibu, which is one of FRN’s residential programs. The Canyon provides support and therapy to individuals struggling with addiction, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, secondary eating issues, psychological trauma, and personality disorders. They offer individualized treatment provided by a staff who have no less than a master’s degree. As Kathleen described the program, it was readily apparent that their approach is one motivated by integrity and what is best for the client and their families.

Here are a few highlights of what The Canyon provides:

-Intervention services, sober escort and travel support
-Clinically supervised detox
-Comprehensive addiction assessment and psychiatric evaluation
-Customized care plan focused on the unique needs of each individual
-Medication management directed by collaborating medical experts
