The Passages Malibu philosophy is what separates our facility from nearly every other luxury rehab center in California, and quite possibly the world. While other rehabilitation programs insist that your addiction is essentially a disease, our staff will never engage in this negative and counterproductive way of thinking. By looking at addiction in a positive light, we spare our clients from harmful terminologies that do little besides slow down progress.
To us, forcing someone to proclaim that they are helpless defeats the entire purpose of seeking treatment. True rehabilitation has to come from a place of internal strength and motivation, not weakness. Instead of having you repeatedly tell yourself that you need to be “healed” from “being sick”, we view your addiction not as a disease, but rather as a single part of your overall character that can be adjusted. You are much more than your addiction at Passages Malibu, and you will never be talked down to because you have an addiction.
Our holistic philosophy employs many different natural methods to overcome addiction such as nutritional supplements, therapeutic exercises and other non-toxic holistic modalities like acupuncture. Whereas basic rehabilitation centers only focus on the physical detoxification and little else, Passages Malibu emphasizes a spiritual, mental and physical connection for the fullest recovery possible – along with results that can last a lifetime.
Our nurturing philosophy minimizes the chances of relapse by offering you plenty of individualized attention along with the privacy you need to reflect on who you are and what you want to do next. As your team of specialists will explain to you upon your arrival, we believe that any addiction can be summarized by one or more of these primary 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
Passages Malibu has the expertise and holistic therapy treatments to determine which of these underlying causes of addiction applies to you. Call 888.638.4731 to become better acquainted with the philosophy of Passages Rehab.
