Passages Malibu - Rated the #1 Rehab in the World

The Passages Philosophy

We believe a person who is dependent on alcohol or drugs is being driven to seek substances by one of these four underlying conditions:

  1. A Chemical Imbalance
  2. Events of the past you have not reconciled
  3. Current conditions you can't cope with
  4. Things you believe that aren't true

Using a one-on-one treatment approach, our therapists will focus on healing the underlying conditions that are causing you to use.

The Passages Philosophy

The History of Passages Malibu and Our Founders

The History of Passages Malibu
and Our Founders


Passages Malibu was founded in 2001 by father and son, Chris and Pax Prentiss. Before Passages, Pax had a horrific ten-year addiction to heroin, cocaine and alcohol. Pax tried treatment centers that offered the 12-Steps and group meetings, but he would always relapse after treatment.

Desperate to save Pax’s life, Chris created a holistic program, something Pax had never had before, and it ended up saving his life. After Pax got sober, he and his father opened Passages. Now, you can experience the same holistic treatment that saved Pax’s life and has saved the lives of thousands of others who have attended Passages.
