Psychotherapy at Passages Malibu

At Passages Malibu, our core philosophy states that your addiction is typically caused by various underlying, unresolved issues. Unlike many 12-step programs where substance abuse is treated as the primary problem, at Passages, we believe that in order to end the cycle of dependency you must first uncover the reasons why you are choosing to numb yourself with drugs and alcohol in the first place. This is where individualized psychotherapy becomes a critical element of your healing process. In addition to other traditional forms of addiction treatment, such as Marriage & Family Therapy and Chemical Dependency Counseling, we offer Psychotherapy sessions to our clients and a safe space to discover the complex nature behind addictive behavior. We teach each individual how to resolve and heal the unique underlying issue(s) that drive substance abuse.

Psychotherapy really is the foundation of our extensive list of addiction treatment methods. In your one-on-one sessions with our professional psychologists, you will finally be able to discover the underlying reasons that are causing you to abuse substances. Being unable to cope with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, marriage, work, relationships, the death of a loved one, financial burdens, illness, insecurity, or physical impairment are the most common reasons for substance abuse. Our psychotherapists are trained to help clients work through these issues in your sessions together.

Underlying Causes of Addiction and Individualized Psychotherapy

When you arrive at Passages Malibu, you will be assigned a Clinical Psychologist who will work with you one-on-one in private sessions for the entirety of your stay. Unlike many other treatment centers that rely primarily on group therapy, this approach lets the therapist get to know the real you and uncover and explore the unique causes of your particular addiction. We truly believe that each client at Passages is an individual with unique life circumstances, and will never label you as just an “addict” with a disease. We will help you recognize and fix the dysfunctional behavior patterns that have overtaken your existence and ultimately heal the pain of the past, so you can lead a healthy, addiction-free life.
