Pax Prentiss has been sober since 2000.
Pax and his father Chris Prentiss co-founded Passages Malibu after Pax had many failed attempts to get clean and stay sober while battling an addiction to drugs and alcohol for 10 years. They created Passages using the methods and the cutting-edge philosophy that Pax used to heal from his own addiction and finally overcome the underlying issues driving him to repeatedly turn to drugs and alcohol for many years.
Pax serves as the CEO and co-founder of Passages Addiction Treatment Center. He leads Passages whole-heartedly with the intent to help each individual who enters Passages Addiction Treat Center overcome their addiction and go on to live a fulfilling life, addiction-free, just as he was able to do.
Since September 4th, 2000 Pax has lived a life free from substance abuse related issues and has focused his energy on being a supportive and loving father to his daughter, Taylor. He works full-time as the CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers and stays actively involved in the creative direction of Passages. He is passionate about helping others who are struggling with addiction and aims to remain at the forefront of the addiction industry.
Passages is not a 12 Step program, nor do we believe that addiction is a disease.
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. Our research shows us that people have a dependency on drugs and alcohol because of one or all of the four reasons:
A chemical imbalance
Past trauma or unresolved circumstances
Difficulty managing current conditions
Untrue beliefs or imprisonment of a negative perspective
Anyone who is abusing drugs and alcohol is doing so because of one or more of these four causes. Through extensive research and direct experience, we have learned that addiction is not the primary problem but rather the symptom of a deeper underlying issue.
We began sharing our revolutionary, non-12-step holistic treatment philosophy with the world in 2001 and have been regarded as leaders in the addiction field ever since. Before Passages, addiction was viewed as an incurable disease accompanied by hopelessness, stigma, and shame. We’ve found a better way. Instead, we approach addiction as a completely treatable condition.
We had several program options for those in need of treatment. We offer intensive inpatient treatment in Malibu and Ventura, California. We also have a beautiful sober living home right on the beach in Santa Monica, where you can receive outpatient services during your stay. For details, please call (888) 397-0112.

The store also includes over a dozen books penned by Pax’s father Chris, who is also an established author of books on personal growth, including several books on the I Ching, as well as the wildly popular Zen and the Art of Happiness and The Little Book of Secrets, among others.
