For over 75 years, the standard has been to use group meetings for therapy. Passages does not endorse this approach. Instead, we discovered that one-on-one therapy is more effective than group meetings, which is why you will receive multiple hours of one-on-one treatment each day. Your team of doctors and therapists will customize your treatment to ensure that you’re getting the finest one-on-one care available. Currently, we offer 22 different types of therapy, all of which you will benefit from during your stay at Passages. (Read more about Passages Malibu One-on-One Addiction Treatment)
Pax Prentiss, who was addicted to heroin, cocaine, and alcohol, knows exactly why he failed at his previous rehab attempts. He was being treated with an outdated treatment program based on the 12-Step method. It simply didn’t work for him. Why? It approached addiction like a disease, focused on group therapy instead of individual care, and labeled Pax an addict for life.

Doctors will often prescribe drugs to people who have serious psychological or psychiatric ailments, which may originate from a chemical imbalance. Although the doctor is trying to help, some patients may develop a dependency on the drugs. We have a much different way of treating chemical imbalances. You will first work with a team of professionals to complete a diagnostic test, reviewing your blood and urine to determine which chemicals are out of balance in your body. After we receive your results, our doctor will design a natural supplement package that will help rebalance your specific body chemistry. In most cases, the need for prescription drugs will fade away as the chemicals in your body balance out. Some of our clients continue with the supplements after they leave Passages.
