Inside the safe and secure grounds at Passages, you’ll find the most comprehensive and sophisticated treatment program in the world. When founders Chris and Pax Prentiss first launched Passages Malibu in 2001, they began with one goal in mind — to create the world’s finest team of treatment professionals. Your team will be comprised of doctors, nurses, psychologists, family therapists, trainers, acupuncturists, hypnotherapists, spiritual counselors, and many others, ensuring your complete satisfaction from the day you check in until the day you graduate from our world-class drug rehab center.
Starting in 2009, Passages Ventura began to offer a strong focus on one-on-one therapy, and we do not use the 12 Step program. When you check into Passages Ventura you will be assigned your own team of therapists and doctors. Many treatment centers claim to offer what we provide, but it’s not true, their program is made up of almost all group meetings with very little one-on-one therapy.
Unlike other rehab centers, we don’t believe that addiction is a disease. Our research shows that people become dependent on drugs and alcohol because of one of these four causes:1. A chemical imbalance
Our goal is to find out what’s driving you to use drugs or alcohol. Once we locate the cause of your addiction, we will begin the work to heal it. Our entire program revolves around accomplishing this goal using an advanced one-on-one approach to therapy.

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 much more effective. 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.
