Passages Ventura rehab center is a non-12 Step, holistic treatment facility located amid the refreshing sea breeze of coastal Ventura County, California. Our flagship location, Passages Malibu was established in 2001 by father and son team Chris & Pax Prentiss. After a long struggle, Pax overcame a decade-long addiction to alcohol, cocaine, and heroin using a program consisting of holistic, one-on-one therapy. This highly effective therapy is now the backbone of the Passages treatment program and the cornerstone of its guiding philosophy.
Passages Ventura accepts many insurance plans and has earned the coveted Joint Commission (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) accreditation, only given to the top 6% of the nation’s behavioral health treatment programs.
Co-founders Chris and Pax Prentiss authored an acclaimed series of treatment books including the original, groundbreaking book, The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure.
