With nearly 20 years leading the addiction treatment industry, Passages stands at the forefront in helping people discover a life free from addiction. We began our revolutionary treatment program after our Co-Founder Chris Prentiss was able to design a system that helped save the life of his son, Co-Founder Pax Prentiss. For nearly ten years, Pax struggled with an addiction to heroin, cocaine, and alcohol. He tried several different 12 Step programs, but nothing worked. He always relapsed, and no matter how hard he tried to break free from his demons, he kept falling back into the trenches of addiction. It was not until his father, Chris, created a customized treatment program that Pax was able to completely heal and recover from his substance abuse related issues. The program Chris created became the template for the Passages treatment program; this same treatment program is what has helped saved the lives of over twenty thousand people from all over the world.
Unlike other treatment centers, at Passages, we treat you with dignity and respect. We do not label you an addict or make you feel imprisoned to false beliefs about yourself. Instead, we help you see and feel the power that is inside yourself; power you never thought you had before.
The therapy at Passages is first class. No other treatment center in the world compares to the quality of care we provide. We offer the equivalent of years' worth of individual therapy sessions in a 30-day program at Passages. This allows for intensive work that gets to the core of the issues driving addiction rather than focusing solely on the substance use itself. The advantage to this approach is clients receive a greater amount of insight and tools to then change their lives in a meaningful way.
