Unlike 12-Step programs (the approach of virtually every other rehab centre in the country), we don’t believe that addiction is a disease. Our research and experience has revealed that people become dependent on drugs and alcohol because of one of these four causes:
Everyone that has checked into Passages has had one or more of the four challenges in their life. If you’re dependent on substances, you can probably relate. The Passages will help you find out why you feel that you need to use drugs or alcohol. Once we locate the cause of your addiction, we will begin the work to heal it and your desire for drugs and alcohol will immediately begin to fade away. Our entire program centers around accomplishing this goal using an advanced one-on-one approach to therapy. Read more about our Non 12-Step Addiction Treatment Philosophy.
For over 75 years, its been common to use group meetings for therapy. Passages does not endorse this approach. Instead, we discovered that one-on-one therapy is more effective than group meetings, which is why you will receive multiple hours of one-on-one treatment each day. Your team of doctors and therapists will customize your treatment to ensure that you’re getting the finest one-on-one care available. Currently, we offer 12 different types of therapy, all of which you will benefit from during your stay at Passages. Read more about Passages Ventura One-on-One Addiction Treatment.
Pax Prentiss, the CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Center, was once hopelessly addicted to heroin, cocaine, and alcohol. His experience has exactly why he failed at his previous rehab attempts. He was being treated with an outdated treatment program based on the 12-Step method. It simply didn’t work for him. Why? It approached addiction like a disease, focused on group therapy instead of individual care, and labeled Pax an addict for life. We invite you to read more about Pax’s success overcoming his addiction to drugs and alcohol by reading this message from our CEO and co-founder Pax Prentiss.
Doctors often prescribe drugs to people who are struggling with serious psychological or psychiatric ailments, which may originate from a chemical imbalance. Although the doctor is trying to help, some patients may develop a dependency on the drugs. We have a much different way of treating chemical imbalances. You will first work with a team of professionals to complete a diagnostic test, reviewing your blood and urine to determine which chemicals are out of balance in your body. After we receive your results, our doctor will design a natural supplement package that will help rebalance your specific body chemistry. In most cases, the need for prescription drugs will fade away as the chemicals in your body balance out. Some of our clients continue with the supplements after they leave Passages.
