When the only option for drug and alcohol treatment was the 12-step disease model, Passages decided to offer something different: Non-12 step drug and alcohol rehab.
The 12 steps work for some but unfortunately there are still thousands of others who do not find success using this approach, including Passages co-founder Pax Prentiss. He realized that there was something deeper driving his addiction - something that he wasn’t able to uncover during group meetings, where he was made to declare himself a victim of disease, beyond help. From this experience, Passages developed a new way to treat people. A different way. A better way.
Instead of settling for a superficial, temporary fix to alleviate the symptoms of addiction, founders Chris and Pax Prentiss realized that the key to deep healing is to figure out why the addiction exists in the first place.
Some of the common underlying issues that cause people to abuse drugs and alcohol are depression, ADD, anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of purpose, insomnia, family turmoil, and childhood trauma. At Passages Malibu, we focus primarily on healing underlying conditions like these through one-on-one treatment and innovative therapeutic methods. This model of drug rehab is effective, efficient, and most importantly, it works.
When you compare the 12 steps to non-12 step drug rehab, here are a few key points to remember:
