“At Passages Malibu, we focus on healing the underlying conditions that are causing you to use drugs and alcohol. We do this by utilizing a highly individualized treatment program with therapists who are experienced in healing the underlying causes of addiction. We do not use the 12 Step program because we believe that it teaches a philosophy that is detrimental to healing and can lead to relapse. Our holistic one-on-one approach is far superior to the 12 Step program and offers state-of-the-art services that will keep you engaged and enthusiastic about healing. During treatment, you will feel empowered, instead of powerless. We do not label you an addict or alcoholic, nor do we believe that you have a disease. We have found that damaging labels, such as addict and alcoholic, rob you of your true identity.
It’s the treatment philosophy at Passages that sets us apart from all other rehab centers in the world. We choose to empower you and heal your underlying conditions, rather than label you an addict and tell you that you have a disease.”
