Within the sprawling grounds and magnificent building at Passages, you will come across one of the most sophisticated and inclusive alcohol addiction treatment programs in the world. When this establishment was put into function in 2001, the program creators, Chris and Pax Prentiss had a solitary aim: to create the finest team of treatment professionals the world had seen. If you decide to take up our services, you will realize that your team is comprised of  the finest nurses, psychologists, family therapists, trainers, acupuncturists, hypnotherapists, spiritual counselors available whose services are sure to gain your complete satisfaction, from day one to the day you walk out our gates, addiction free.

Our program relies strongly on one on one therapy and we do not use the 12 step program. We have our unique way of doing things here. Once you enroll, you will have your individual team of ten professionals assisting you. Despite what other centers may claim, we are different in our approach. Standard therapy sessions happen in groups; we believe in single one-on-one therapy.


Non-12 Step Addiction Treatment Philosophy

Regardless of what the other rehab centers might preach, we have a belief that addiction is not a disease. Our research and study show that people become addicted to drugs, alcohol and other abusive substances due to one of the following circumstances:

  1. Chemical imbalance
  2. Unresolved events from the past
  3. Beliefs you hold that are inconsistent with what is true
  4. Inability to cope with current conditions

We aim to find out what is troubling you and use that information to help you lay off the alcohol. Once we can identify the underlying problem, we start work to heal you.

Our aim is to find the source of your problems that lead you to resort to drugs or alcohol. Once we find the cause, we start working to help you to fix the problem. Our entire program revolves around accomplishing this goal using an advanced one-on-one approach to therapy.


Unique One-on-One Addiction Treatment

Over the past 75 years, rehab centers have used the standard group therapy. At Passages, we believe in a different approach. Over our research, we have discovered that one-on-one therapy is much more effective. The therapists assigned to you will customize your treatment according to your problems to ensure you are getting the finest care available. Up till now, we offer 21 different kinds of addiction therapies, all of which you will benefit from during your stay here.

More Than Just an Alcohol Rehab Center

Undoubtedly, Passages Malibu is more than just an alcohol rehab center. It is an inclusive space that will take you on a journey of self-exploration. Passages will not just equip you with the right tools to overcome alcohol addiction, but it will also reform your lifestyle for good. With us, you will be able to look deep within yourself and figure yourself out. As a part of our alcohol treatment program, you will, with the aid of our experts, introspect in earnest and identify the root causes of your dependency on alcohol. Once you identify the causes, the team of experts assigned to you will devise a comprehensive alcohol treatment plan exclusively based on your individual issues and their resolution.

Unlike ordinary alcohol rehab center, at Passages, we follow the one on one therapy system. This serves several purposes. It enables you to get comfortable at our rehab facility. In the comfort of our deluxe alcohol rehab center, you can look forward to getting over your alcohol addiction by leaning on several carefully crafted activities that will make you open up and be true to yourself. You will, over the course of this program, learn what your weaknesses and strengths are, what your passion is and which of your goals are worth striving for. Our psychotherapists, hypnotherapists, and life purpose counselors, for example, are some people who make up our holistic healing team. With the combined help of these accomplished professionals and our client’s resolve to quit, Passages Malibu has been successful in creating an environment that aids in individualistic healing.

Alcohol addiction is a pertinent problem that impacts one’s life in several ways. It takes an emotional toll on you, it affects you financially, and sometimes it steals from you the peace of your mind. It has adverse effects on your mind, your body and your spirit. That is why our alcohol treatment program incorporates elements from twenty-one different therapy methods. These methods nurture our clients on all three levels and that too through a set of engaging activities. On a physical level, you can hit the gym or our new ropes course; engage in a friendly competition after hitting our serene detox unit perched on a hill overlooking the breathtakingly beautiful Pacific Ocean. Exercises such as equine assisted therapy, art therapy, and yoga will help you find your inner strength and alleviate stress and anxiety. Then we have meditation therapy and Tai Chi which will enable you to look into yourself and strengthen your spirit.

Passages Malibu is an excellent alcohol rehab center because here you can pick any of these activities based on your personal issues and preferences. Our friendly staff will be around to aid you at all times. We will never look at alcohol addiction as a perpetual disease. Instead, we have chosen to follow an approach that is more wholesome and effective. Passages Alcohol has healed many due to its emphatic vision, unique approach, and certified staff.

Chris and Pax Prentiss co-founded Passages Malibu in 2001 to replace the ineffective and outdated philosophy and practices of modern luxury rehab centers in recent years. When Pax was addicted to drugs and alcohol and ready to stop, the luxury rehab centers all told him they had no permanent solutions. Passages Malibu is a luxury rehab center that proves permanent solutions are possible.

Whether he was in a therapist’s office or at a 30-day, 60-day, or 90-day luxury rehab program, everyone was always calling Pax an addict with a disease. This stereotypical approach only reinforced his negative perceptions of himself and what the world expected of him. Instead of making Pax more motivated to quit using drugs and alcohol, it only encouraged him to relapse.

Chris refused to give up on his son, and Pax refused to give up on himself, so they turned their backs on luxury rehab centers and continued trying new ideas on their own. Eventually, through a combination of deep research and personal experience, Pax was able to look within himself and identify the personal reasons that were contributing to his drug and alcohol addiction. Pax realized that depression, anxiety and a low self-image were responsible for his drug and alcohol addiction, which was not a disease at all.

With this revelation in mind, Chris and Pax founded Passages Malibu. We are a California luxury rehab center that uses an open-ended approach that’s highly similar to what worked for Pax.
