Meet The Staff

Willie Oswald
CEO/Founder

Over the past 30 years William Oswald has established himself as a pioneer in the alcohol and addiction recovery field. At the Adult Substance Abuse Program of Southern California (ASAP) he was one of the first to expand the scope of addiction treatment into mainstream medical facilities. In 1988 he founded Avalon Treatment Centers at Van Nuys Hospital, the first center to provide a broad range of social and therapeutic treatments that significantly reduced relapse rates. In the 1990s he established Lumax Mental Health, a company specializing in day treatment programs for dual diagnosis patients at area hospitals, and went on to direct business development for New Seasons Behavior Health Center, one of the first centers to utilize neurocognitive treatment for addiction. Mr. Oswald was also instrumental in creating Cocaine Anonymous, a 12-Step fellowship that has helped thousands.

I was a client of Summit Malibu in May 2019. The staff was extremely kind and caring, and nursed me back to emotional and physical health. The therapists ran effective groups and were astute at offering individualized care. The chef was phenomenal - I can’t speak highly enough of him.

Coming to Summit was my third time in rehab. This is the only place I have gone that gave me real individual therapy, like 9 times a week, and helped me deal with my issues. The groups were pretty good and it was more than just listening to a therapist--we did a lot of things as part of them, and even got to do a nutrition group each week where we got to cook. The food was awesome and they also took us on weekly outings which were very cool. I had a nice private room with a tv, nothing over the top, but nice and the bed was really good for sleeping. The best part though was the staff- they really made me feel like it was a big family and I belonged.

At least 5 individual therapy sessions a week, small/intimate, family like atmosphere. More beach outings would be great (once a week isn't always enough) I was here for 90 days, they helped me walk through a divorce, deal with trauma and untreated depression as well as my addiction. I now have 2 years of sobriety, and this place is still my "home".

They were better than what they looked like actually. After 90 days at Summit I had the tools needed to go back out into world with a new support structure to help me build a new life. Now, almost 2 years sober I now work there, at the place that saved my life. I am truly blessed.
