To all of the amazing staff at LifeSync. You all loved and supported me (and my dog) through a very difficult and shameful part of my life. For that I am eternally grateful. There is not one person there that wasn’t anything but wonderful to me. You are all angels and I miss you all dearly.

I wanted to thank all of you for helping me through a tough time in my life. The compassion and professionalism that I received while I was there amazed me. You are all truly special people who I will think of often with fond memories. Keep up the wonderful work that you are doing. You folks are all changing lives, and for that you should be proud. Thank you again for everything.

You all have been so amazing! I want to thank you all for being so kind and supportive during my stay here. I have grown a lot from my treatment at LifeSync, even when I was being stubborn. The team is so passionate about what they do and it shows. I really lucked out by having this place as my first and last rehab. I’ve never met such a great bunch people.

There are no words to describe how important LifeSync is in my life. Because of the team at LifeSync I gained my strength back. Thanks for teaching me mind, body, emotion and spirit!

This place saved my life. This was my first experience with treatment and they did an amazing job at helping me get back on my feet and giving me the tool I needed to live a productive and sober life. The staff is beyond amazing and the small client base really means you get the individual attention you need. If you need help, want to get sober and stay sober this is the place to do it.

What incredible people at life sync treatment. Just sent another client to Dr.Booth and his team and once again another sober member of society was delivered. Thanks for all the hard work and individual care you provide.

Best experience ever! The most trained and well put together staff I’ve come along in ages.
Dr Booth was onsite all the time and I felt he prescribed all the right amounts of medications! Some place totally over prescribe. The facilty is 5 stars well kept incredible food and the best view ever.

The quality of care and individual attention for patients is incredible and the facility is absolutely beautiful. The staff is awesome and in recovery as well. As far as drug and alcohol detoxes go this one is top notch. The need for a detox is something that I wouldn't wish on anyone, however, should you do have a need, you won't go wrong choosing Lifesync Malibu.

I came to LifeSync during the darkest time of my life after my mom passed. I felt broken, scared, and like an empty shell of a person. I was nervous when I got there. I had felt numb and alone for so long, and Zeena and Del were so warm and kind. They instantly put me at ease and I knew I was in a place where people cared and wanted to help me. I can't thank them enough for that first night and they'll never know how much it will always mean to me. The first couple days were pretty rough and knowing I wasn't alone for the first time in a long time was comforting. Most of the staff are in recovery themselves and will share their experiences getting sober with you. (Thanks Mike.) I just can't say enough nice things about LifeSync, the group and individual therapy was fantastic, we went for beach days, and I remembered how to really laugh again. If you're reading this and wanting to get help, or you have a loved one that needs help, send them to Lifesync. It's the best decision I've ever made and I'd absolutely send anyone I know and love there now too. After I left, every single person has reached out to me to see how I am doing and I know I've made lifelong connections. That means the world to me, and it says so much about them. I can still call at any moment to talk to someone, and I do. The future was dark and uncertain when I got there and I left full of hope and excited to start living again. I am so happy I found them, and found myself again in the process. Thank you so much to EVERYONE at Lifesync. I love you guys.

Choosing LifeSync Malibu is by far the greatest decision I have made for myself & my family. When it was time to seek treatment I did my homework and couldn’t decide which treatment center to chose until a close friend suggested I look at LifeSync. The individualized treatment plan was specific to my needs and addressed the many complex contributing factors that were responsible for situation. The staff were incredibly professional and supportive during every aspect of my treatment process & continued to guide me as I transitioned into post- treatment recovery. I am forever grateful for my experience at LifeSync Malibu and credit them 100% with laying the strong foundation that is responsible for my continued recovery & sobriety.

If you reached rock bottom, you are not alone. I lost control of my life during the winter holidays of 2018. I suffered from acute depression, anxiety and suicidal ideations because of a micromanaging boss. I started drinking excessively among other things and wanted to end my life.
Thanks to Life Sync, I was able to find myself again in the most peaceful location in Malibu. I felt safe and protected from harm because of Dr. Booth and his amazing staff. I learned how to live my life again after a week of detox. LifeSync has everything: group sessions, arts and music classes, cooking classes, hikes, yoga and other sports, daily meetings (except Saturday’s) and more to offer...

Dr. Booth has a big heart and really wants the best for you and help you for a lifetime sobriety. I hope you get the chance to meet him and his team. Thank you: Mike, Randy, Ryan, Rachel, Chaz, Ari, Vinny, Taylor, Del, Duke, Sue, Jazz, Tachi, Irene and Sonny. Life Sync saved my life and I thank everyone at this treatment center for it!

Lifesync has been a great segue for a friend of mine who has been battling with both addiction and alcoholism for years now. Being at Lifesync, it seems like he's "Comfortable with staff and actually willing to go through their process of getting sober" and most has willingness to STAY sober. In my opinion, Lifesync isn't one of those places where after a detox they will send you out into the real world right off the bat. The clinical team and the supportive staff surrounding understand how complex addiction and alcoholism is and being so, they do their best to introduce you into a new healthier style of living. It takes commitment and trusting of the process in order to change, and lifesync hands down has shown me the best results I've seen thus far. Combine an amazingly talented and compassionate staff and team, as well as a beautiful environment, Lifesync really gives you the best chance of gaining an amazing new life.

I can't adequately express how grateful I am to have found LifeSync. At a particularly stressful and confusing time in my life, Ryan from LifeSync connected with me through a mutual acquaintance, and he expertly navigated me through the process of checking into LifeSync; moreover, Ryan has continued to provide stalwart support and guidance well beyond my discharge. The staff and ownership at LifeSync demonstrated a great deal of knowledge, expertise, and authentic care and concern for my wellbeing. It has been obvious, on a day to day basis, that Dr. Booth and his team are fully invested in the success of their clients-- a real rarity in the world of treatment, as I've experienced it through years of combatting addiction. I fervently and wholeheartedly recommend LifeSync to anyone seeking substance abuse treatment.

I got extremely lucky to end up at LifeSync for my treatment center. The staff are so attentive and full of knowledge. I learned so much about addiction and myself being there. The amount of faith the staff has in their clients is astonishing. Ryan is fantastic at what he does and checks in to see how things are going. I’ll forever hold the month at LifeSync close to my heart. If you’re looking for a place that actually cares and has the desire to see progress in breaking the cycle of addiction LifeSymc is the place to go.

This place was fantastic. The marketing director ryan worked so fast and diligently to get me in as quickly as possible and made the transition smooth. The staff were simply beautiful. They were empathetic, supportive and made my stay here extremely comfortable. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The chef made Delicious and healthy meals throughout the day. I can’t stress enough how wonderful the staff was. They are serious about the work they put forth but make it a lighthearted and comfortable stay for their clients. I would recommend this facility to anyone! Thank you all for all you have done for me. Much love xoxo

Lifesync Malibu was the best experience I have ever had in my recovery. I’m proud to say I am one of the first graduates of there RTC program. The techs are all outstanding and personally involved in recovery. They invested in my wellbeing and are still caring for my sobriety today.
The program manager, Mike, could not be more proactive. Anything that needed to get done was handled immediately. I saw the program blossom before my eyes and I firmly believe that the outline they have is a recipe for success.

The facilitators are outstanding. Sue works excellent deep and meaningful process groups. They offer gym time and yoga, mindfulness meditation and education courses to equip addicts to fight this disease. In all my years in recovery i have never learned so much so quickly of the science behind addiction.

Ryan bent over backwards to rescue me while I was using and bring me into the detox. Lifesync picked me up and brought me to the facility. Still after I left the program Ryan continued to support my recovery. Lifesync never gives up on its clients.

I feel so lucky that I found lifesync. I firmly feel that I am sober today and able to manage my addiction because of the tools I acquired in my 30 days in residential. I could go on about the maid service, the wonderful chef, the beautiful house, and wonderful view. But the important thing is that you can really get sober here. The staff believes in you. There’s no place better to go.

My substance abuse brought me to LifeSync located in Malibu, California. Initially it was a hard decision even knowing that I needed a lifestyle change for the better. I reached out to Ryan Gartrell, Director of Business Development. He helped me through the initial process giving me all the details that I needed to know in order to make the decision. For me, it wasn't overnight and a bit scary to make the commitment. Ryan was not only an experienced professional in this field but most importantly he was understanding and positive. He was patient as he knew that decisions such as these needed to be made comfortably and confidently. I soon made the decision to change my life. I met with Dr. Booth and his staff. Dr. Booth gave me his undivided attention as he made me feel like we were a team in making the best decisions together for my health. He is a good listener, well versed in this field and experienced. He cares for his patients recovery and suggests all medical methods that can be used to help his patients success. Dr. Booth's staff was very attentive with High Medical standards. They were all very caring and helped with any questions or concerns. Availability was 24 hours a day.
The Home/facility is immaculate, spacious with gorgeous views that help with relaxation and serenity during the process. The patients were provided a daily preset menu by the chef that was healthy keeping us well balanced. We had daily schedules that consisted of group therapy sessions, group recovery activities, outside meetings (i.e. AA & SOBA) that is part of the program . The staff is always open to suggestions.

LifeSync provided all that I needed to help in the initial detox phase as well as the recovery stage. On going therapy and hard work is always still needed in the coming years for me, however, I feel that LifeSync set me up for success. If ever I need any kind of help in the future I know that Dr. Booth and his staff is there to help me with anything that I need.

Thank you, Dr. Booth, staff & Ryan Gartrell for changing life for the better. ... Maria

I came here a completely beaten man. You guys showed me compassion, comfort and reassurance. The person I see in my profile picture, is not the man I see looking back at me in the mirror. In 10 short days, I laughed, helped, learned, experienced and awakened more of me that I have ever known. This is all thanks to Life sync




I thought I could handle it, manage it and control my drinking. It wasn’t until suicide attempts, a gun purchase, psych ward and a Dui did I call out for help. Life sync Malibu Detox answered the call. I came face to face with how sick I really am and was relieved to be in a safe place to allow this to happen. What a gift! Thank you for preparing me for treatment. Your work is so important. God Bless.




Great facility, great staff. It felt like a luxury resort in Malibu. It was helpful. Thank you, Life sync.




I have never felt more comfortable detoxing as I did at Life sync. Private rooms with amazing beds and flat screen TV made me feel as if I was at a high-class hotel. The panoramic ocean view is breathtaking. Most importantly, every one of the staff is friendly and did everything possible to make this experience as comfortable and as painless as possible. I will recommend Life sync to anyone I know in need of detox. Here you are a human who is hurting physically and emotionally and in need of compassion. You are not just a $$$.




At first I was not happy to be here, but my stay turned out to be incredible. I felt very welcomed and take care of. I was super lazy but the staff was super inspiring and talkative. The groups were great and really opened my eyes to some things. Thank you for the help!




This has been a great start to my journey in life. I am so blessed for the opportunity and to have met each one of you. You all have been so welcoming and caring. I just wanted to thank you all.




All the staff go above and beyond. I strongly recommend Life Sync and if I ever needed to come back here, I would be happy to return because I was safe and cared for.




From the moment, I stepped food into Life sync care, I felt as though everything was as good as it could be. The staff are what make this experience amazing. This place rocks! I’m glad and very grateful I got the chance to come here. Thank you everyone!




Thank you for Making Christmas day not feel so lonely. I must admit, I woke up sad but by the end of the days I was content, laughing, watching movies and eating popcorn with the staff. Thank you Doctor Booth for having a lovely environment people can go detox to.




My stay at Life sync was as good as it possibly could be, considering it is a detox center. I couldn’t imagine a more friendly, accretive, positive and open staff. Also, the grounds in which we are to stay are beyond anything I could’ve imagined. This was my first time in detox. If I were an outsider looking to give advice to a person who is in the shoes I was two weeks ago, this would be the place I would recommend them to go to. Here they get the right treatment with friendly staff and excellent living grounds.




This place has been amazing to me. The staff has always been super helpful and respectful to me. I felt extremely comfortable my whole stay. Thank you guys solo much for helping me get back on track. I am very grateful.




Unfortunately, relapse has been part of my recovery. Therefore, I’ve seen my share of detox programs. I must say that Life sync has been the best detox ever by far. I consider all aspects including food, staff, detox process and small things such as the beds. Unique to other detox centers, clients have their own room including a private bathroom with shower and TV. This makes the process more comfortable and the start of our journey less painful as the initial stage is rather tough. The staff are kind and everyone has something different and positive to offer. Many of the staff are in recovery which is helpful when getting clean as they have been through the initial struggle and can offer their experience, strength and hope. I felt welcomed as soon as I walked through the door up to the time I was ready to leave. Meals are provided and cooked on the site. Full course delicious meals are served which is important as we neglected to eat healthy prior to entering detox. A medicated detox plan specific to each client is provided and against helps to relieve the initial discomfort. Before arriving to detox I tried to kick heroin, meth, benzos and it was a complete disaster. Thanks to Life sync Malibu, I now have 10 days free from any mind-altering substances. I can’t forget to mention the stunning view of the Pacific Ocean which can be viewed with a matter of steps. One of the best views in all of Malibu, for sure! For me this is helpful when detoxing as it’s a reminder of the beautiful things in life and that drugs aren’t required to enjoy the small things. It makes me appreciate the small things again. Basic therapy is offered daily. Simply said, Life sync was conducive to my initial recovery with a luxurious setting and comfortable environment. I personally recommend Life sync over all other detox centers because of the examples I expressed. Friendly staff, daily support groups, beautiful scenic views, excellent meals, comfortable single med rooms, medicated detox assistance and an onsite doctor to offer medical support. Thanks again to Life sync for getting me over that initial tough struggle of getting clean. This has been a great place!




Over the last 8 years I have been beating myself up over and over again, not appreciating who I was, I wasn’t able to see the good in myself. after being through about 35 different treatment centers, different arrests, months in jail, overdoses, hurting my family over and over again, I was given one LAST chance. I ended up at life sync. I was given the time for myself to clear my head and get away from the drugs. The staff was amazing, they helped me see the positives in everything. They took me to meetings, helped me get into the flow of the programs, it set an absolutely SOLID foundation for what I have today. I’m able to hold my head high, I have respect for myself and for others around me. And for the first time i have made it to a year sober. Thank you life sync for my life today.
