Sitting in the Zen garden at Passages one afternoon, a client who had only been there for a few days came and sat with us. It was a peaceful day with the soft sounds of the waterfall in the background and the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean to set the tone. The client was a young man who shared right away, “you will never believe how I got here.” I could tell that he had only been there for a day or two because he was not fully present. He was still in a dream-like haze from what the substances have done to his brain and his spirit. He walked slowly with a geriatric limp, despite seeming to be a young man.
The substances had caused his body to deteriorate and his mind to slowly fade. He shared that he felt like he was at 10% when he arrived and was already feeling like he was at 60% of being himself again. That was an amazing report from someone who had just arrived. He was so thrilled to be sitting in the Zen garden, overlooking the ocean in his new home, and shared that he never thought he would be able to receive treatment from a place like Passages. He reported seeing the commercials about Passages and wanting to come, but had told himself the following myths that had to be overcome before making his dream a reality:
- Passages is too classy.
Although the facilities at Passages are very classy, they are welcome to all. In fact, you will see people from all journeys and they are wearing whatever clothes they find comfortable and enjoying the same luxuries of the rich and famous. It is a classy place, but that doesn’t mean it is too classy for you. You deserve a bit of class.
- I can’t afford it.
Many people are unaware that Passages in Malibu takes many forms of insurance and works with clients on payment plans. If you have never considered a luxury rehabilitation center because of the cost, it is important that you make the call today. You may find yourself sitting in the Zen garden soon as well.
- I have to work.
After putting off rehabilitation for too long, this gentlemen lost his job. He had taken too many days off of work to drink and get stoned and was unable to make it to work. Don’t wait until you don’t have a choice. If you approach your employers with a desire to get treatment, they are required to support you in taking the time that you need to heal and recover.
- Only celebrities are at Passages in Malibu.
Although many famous people have attended luxury rehab centers in Malibu due to the quality of care and the benefits of healing next to the ocean and mountains, it is open to people from all walks of life. The celebrities live in Malibu for a reason, and you should come to find out for yourself why it is a great place to reside.
If you have been wondering if Passages in Malibu is right for you, don’t wait any longer. Please pick up the phone and call to see if this might be the right option for you. There is a team waiting to help you come back to life. And pretty sure you will be at 100% again.
