5.     We are not a 12 Step program.

At Passages we do not label you an addict nor do we believe you are powerless over your addiction. Instead, we use holistic therapy methods to treat the underlying condition that is causing a person to use drugs or alcohol. We do not believe that addiction is a disease.

·         A chemical imbalance

·         Past trauma or unresolved circumstances

·         Difficulty managing current conditions

·         Untrue beliefs or an imprisonment of a negative perspective
