Since we opened our doors at Passages Malibu in 2001 and Passages Ventura in 2009, we've helped thousands of people successfully recover from their addictions. We attribute our ongoing success at our first class luxury addiction treatment centers to our holistic, non-12-Step treatment options and an abundance of effective, private, one-on-one therapy.
Our research and experience has shown that addiction is caused by underlying conditions that are driving you to use drugs and alcohol. Once you discover and heal these underlying issues such as physical pain, emotional trauma, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, or family turmoil, the need to turn to do drugs or alcohol will end. Unlike the group approach offered by most addiction treatment centers, our program is customized specifically for you.
At Passages, you will experience an abundance of holistic treatment. Comfort and relaxation are crucial to effective healing, so we also provide massage therapists, acupuncturists, personal trainers, in-house chefs, resort style amenities, a tennis court, koi ponds, pools, Jacuzzis, a full housekeeping staff, an attentive client support staff, and so much more. Our program focuses on your mind, body and spirit so nothing is left undone.
We do not believe that addiction is a disease. We support your ability to heal yourself and enjoy an exciting, fulfilling life. Take it from me; I am living proof of that this method works. I invite you to read a brief summary of my personal story on this website, or in detail in the book that I co-wrote with my father, The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure.
Our Malibu facility was named #1 Rehab Center in the Worldby Healthcare Global magazine in 2012 and One of the most luxurious places to dry out by Forbes magazine. In addition, both facilities are accredited by The Joint Commission (JCAHO) which is a highly coveted accreditation, with only 6% of addiction treatment centers in the US having secured JCAHO certification.
