Cutting-Edge Treatment Philosophy


Our cutting-edge philosophy is based on healing the underlying conditions that cause addiction. Healing the underlying conditions is the most important part of getting sober because your underlying conditions are driving you to use drugs and alcohol. Once your underlying conditions are healed, it is much easier to stay sober. This is the key to long term sobriety, and your overall well-being.

The Passages program combines a blend of holistic, clinical, and medical treatments that make a very well-rounded and effective program. When you arrive at Passages, you will be assigned your own treatment team that will consist of a medical doctor, psychologist, marriage family therapist, chemical dependency counselor, acupuncturist, hypnotherapist, spiritual counselor, physical trainer, aftercare planner, and many others. Your professional and caring team will work closely with you throughout your stay thus ensuring your total satisfaction.

The History of Passages Malibu and Our Founders

The History of Passages Malibu
and Our Founders


The Passages Malibu treatment program was created in 2001 by father and son, Chris and Pax Prentiss. Before Passages opened, Pax had a horrific ten-year addiction to heroin, cocaine and alcohol. Pax tried one 12 Step facility after another, but Pax would always relapse after treatment.

Desperate to save Pax’s life Chris helped Pax create a holistic program which ultimately saved Pax’s life. Shortly after Pax got sober, he and his father decided to open Passages and offer their holistic program to the world. Now, you can experience the same holistic treatment that saved Pax life and has saved thousands of others who have sought help at Passages.
