Addiction is a devastating condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can rob you of your life, relationships, finances, and even your self-worth. Fortunately, Passages Malibu offers hope and help to individuals who are struggling with addiction. With over 20 years of experience in treating substance abuse issues, we provide an individualized treatment plan tailored to meet the needs of each client.
What Sets Passages Malibu Apart?
Passages Malibu stands out from other addiction treatment centers because our approach is holistic and integrative. Instead of relying solely on medication or traditional therapies, we offer various modalities to treat our client’s conditions. Clients may partake in creative activities such as art therapy or music therapy, relaxation treatments such as yoga, meditation, and massage, and even equine-assisted therapy, which involves working with horses to improve self-awareness and emotional regulation.
In addition to these alternative treatments, Passages also provides traditional therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). These treatments address the underlying causes of addiction by exploring personal stories, identifying negative thought patterns and behaviors, and learning new coping skills for managing difficult emotions. These therapeutic approaches work together to create an individualized treatment plan to meet each client’s unique needs.
Our team at Passages also places a strong emphasis on aftercare planning. After completing treatment at Passages Malibu, clients are given all the tools they need to continue living sober lives, including referrals for support groups, access to alumni support and resources, and continued contact with their treatment team if needed. This ensures that clients have ongoing support when transitioning back into their regular lives after treatment has ended.
At Passages Malibu, individuals struggling with addiction can find a safe space to begin healing and reclaiming their lives. By offering a holistic approach combined with evidence-based therapies like CBT and DBT, clients can access the best possible care while being supported by a compassionate team at every step.
