What is the Philosophy of Passages Malibu?


When Chris and Pax Prentiss founded Passages Malibu in 2001, they envisioned providing chemical dependency rehab in ways that no luxury rehab center had ever accomplished. Instead of following a rigid series of predetermined “steps”, they wanted the client to take a more active role in their recovery. This involves listening to the client in ways that few luxury rehab centers had ever attempted before.

The Passages Malibu chemical dependency rehab treatment center has gone on to receive the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission for its leading holistic healing philosophy, placing Passages Malibu in the 6% bracket of top luxury rehab centers in the nation. Healthcare Global commends Passages Malibu as the best chemical dependency rehab treatment center in the world. In an article about luxury alcohol rehab, Forbes Magazine describes our alcohol rehab program as “most luxurious”.

Ample Staffing

Holistic Therapy Treatments for Addiction

Passages Malibu does not use prescription drugs to assist with its chemical dependency rehab program. Prescription drug medication for addiction often comes with its own side effects and, in our experience, is nowhere near as effective as real holistic healing. All of our addiction therapy treatments are chemical-free.

No Negative Stereotyping

Remaining positive and relaxed is important when recovering from drugs and alcohol. Unfortunately, many luxury rehab centers choose to use negative terms to stereotype their clients unfairly. Labeling people as “addicts” or “junkies” carries many negative connotations, and we feel it is counterproductive to holistic healing.

Passages Malibu recognizes that a drug and alcohol addiction is but one aspect of the overall person being treated. Negative terms should never define who they are, and they should never shape the path of who they can become. At Passages Malibu, everyone is treated with dignity, humanity and respect – without stereotyping.
