Non-12 Step, Non-AA Addiction Treatment at Passages Ventura

At Passages Ventura, we offer non-12 step, non-AA, alternative holistic drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

Unfortunately, the 12 steps are not an effective solution for everyone seeking recovery from drug or alcohol addiction. One of the people who never found success using AA was Pax Prentiss, the co-founder and CEO of both Passages Ventura and Passages Malibu. He realized that there was something deeper driving his addiction – a “why” that he wasn’t able to uncover during group meetings. Instead of just believing that he had been afflicted with an incurable disease, Pax and his father Chris developed a new way to treat people which focused on healing the underlying issues beneath the surface of addiction.

Some of these underlying issues that frequently cause people to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol are depression, ADD, anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of purpose, insomnia, family turmoil, and childhood trauma. The alternative, non-12 step approach at Passages Ventura utilizes one-on-one treatment and innovative therapeutic methods to heal these underlying issues and put an end to addiction permanently.

There are a few key points to be aware of when comparing non-12 step programs like Passages Ventura to the 12 steps:

12 Step Treatment Centers:

  • Require you to declare yourself as a lifelong addict or alcoholic
  • Believe that addiction is an incurable disease
  • Include mopping floors, cleaning toilets, and engaging in punitive chores as part of their treatment model
  • Prohibit contact with friends and family through phones or the internet
  • Require work with a sponsor, attendance of AA meetings, and focus primarily on large group sessions instead of one-on-one therapy

Passages Ventura’s Non-12 Step Rehab Center:

  • Provides abundance of one-on-one, customized therapy each month
  • Heals the underlying conditions causing your addiction, not just the symptoms of addiction itself
  • Ensures complete confidentiality, respectful treatment, and an overall positive environment
  • Provides a full team of therapists and addiction experts.
  • Utilizes holistic methods to ensure physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing
  • Allows unlimited permission to speak to family and friends during treatment
  • Will never require you to declare yourself as powerless or incurable
