Passages Malibu’s advanced 5-star amenities and rejuvenating spa-like settings are the finest in the world, but it’s our guiding philosophy that truly gets results. At our philosophy’s core is the acknowledgement of your humanity over addiction. We are guided by compassion and never contempt. In other words, your addiction does not give staff permission to belittle you and make you feel diseased.
Addiction is a complex chemical relationship that can only be overcome with diligence and compassion. Your Treatment Team recognizes that you are an individual who needs to be shown respect and dignity at all times. From intake to graduation, your esteem will improve as you are given meaningful lessons designed to help you find a purpose that’s worthwhile.
Conventional rehab centers force their clients into submission with negative stereotyping and labels such as being called an “addict”. We do not believe in this harsh language and encourage you to approach addiction from a perception of self-awareness and empowerment. Instead of using shame as a motivator, we believe in teaching you how to be proud and find purpose.
When you are ready to combat your drug and alcohol addiction in a positive way, then please give us a call. A Passages Malibu representative will be glad to discuss our philosophy and answer any questions you may have.
Passages Malibu has been treating drug and alcohol addiction since 2001, and we fully understand how they form. No matter what the addiction is, the core causes are always the same. Anyone who has developed a drug and alcohol addiction has done so due to one or more of the following causes:
1. A Chemical Imbalance
2. Events of the past you have not reconciled
3. Current conditions you can't cope with
4. Things you believe that aren't true
