With nearly 20 years leading the addiction treatment industry, Passages stands at the forefront of discovering a life free from addiction. We began our revolutionary treatment program after our Co-Founder Chris Prentiss was able to design a system that helped save his son's life, Co-Founder Pax Prentiss. For nearly ten years, Pax struggled with an addiction to heroin, cocaine, and alcohol. He tried several different 12 Step programs, but nothing worked. He always relapsed, and no matter how hard he tried to break free from his demons, he kept falling back into the trenches of addiction. It was not until his father, Chris, created a customized treatment program that Pax could heal and recover from his substance abuse related issues completely.
The program Chris created became the template for the Passages treatment program; this same treatment program has helped save the lives of over twenty thousand people from all over the world.
Unlike other treatment centers, at Passages, we treat you with dignity and respect. We do not label you an addict or make you feel imprisoned for false beliefs about yourself. Instead, we help you see and feel the power that is inside yourself, the power you never thought you had before.
The therapy at Passages is first class. No other treatment center in the world compares to the quality of care we provide. We offer the equivalent of years' worth of individual therapy sessions in a 30-day program at Passages. This allows for intensive work that gets to the core of the issues driving addiction rather than focusing solely on the substance use itself. The advantage to this approach is that clients receive a more significant amount of tools and insight to change their lives in a meaningful way.
If the treatment center you are researching doesn't have as its primary goal to find what started your addiction and is keeping it alive, how do you expect them to end it?
The reason you have not been able to quit drinking or drugging is because that what’s keeping your addiction alive is still within you, driving it, keeping it alive and active. We refer to it as “Your Secret.” It’s one or more of the Four Causes of Addiction.
To discover your secret and heal it, we provide One-on-One therapy with a group of gifted therapists who work as a team to find what they're looking for: Your Secret; The Cause that fuels your addiction. It's there, inside every person who is addicted and can't stop without relapsing. Once your cause is found and healed, stopping is pretty much automatic without struggling to stay sober.
EVERYONE who is addicted and can’t quit has a secret locked up inside. At Passages, we help you uncover your secret and heal it, so it stops driving your addiction, keeping it alive and active. When we find it and treat it, that’s when your addiction can end. Sobriety is a natural part of life.
In choosing a treatment center, if they don’t do the above...keep looking.
