The History of Passages Malibu Luxury Rehab

Father and son Chris and Pax Prentiss co-founded Passages Malibu in 2001. This California luxury rehab center would go on to provide the best drug and alcohol dependency rehabilitation that the world has ever seen. Passages Malibu has earned the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission (only 6% of all luxury rehab centers in the nation have done this) as well as recognition from Healthcare Global and Forbes Magazine.

Unfortunately, their success in treating drug and alcohol addiction comes from an awful personal experience. Pax had formed a chemical dependency to drugs and alcohol which he allowed to continue for ten long years before seeking help. At that point, his drug and alcohol dependency had left him with no friends and little family due to his consistent patterns of lying, cheating and stealing to get what he wanted. He eventually admitted that he had a problem to his father.

Chris could see that his son was very sincere in his desire to stop drugs and alcohol, so he enrolled him in the best addiction treatment services available at the time. Having no experience in this sort of ordeal, the two of them were open to whatever the industry experts suggested. It was a logical approach that ultimately got them nowhere.

All drug and alcohol treatment programs treated Pax the same way: as an addict with a disease. Whether he was at a 30-day, 60-day, or 90-day luxury treatment program, Pax was repeatedly told that he was powerless over his addiction and would have a disease forever. This did not make Pax feel good about himself at all, and he would relapse to escape the shame he felt.

It took Chris and Pax a long time to realize that Pax was effectively being shamed into relapse. At this point, all drug and alcohol dependency rehab options had proven ineffective and they were running out of new opportunities. With a lack of professional help available, they began to research alternative approaches to drug and alcohol addiction, hoping to find something that worked.

Chris and Pax took what they did like about modern luxury rehab centers and added other various elements of Western and Eastern philosophies that they felt might work. It was largely a trial-and-error approach, but soon they had cobbled together a drug and alcohol treatment program that let Pax get to the bottom of his dependency once and for all.

After resolving drug and alcohol addiction on his own, Chris and Pax opened Passages Malibu to help others do the same. Passages Malibu utilizes a broad variety of holistic therapies and expert staff to heal clients in mind, body and spirit with a customized drug and alcohol dependency treatment program.
