Passages Ventura Celebrates 8 Years of Holistic Addiction Treatment

By Jennifer McDougall

For 8 years, Passages Ventura has been helping those suffering with drug and alcohol related addictions discover and heal their underlying conditions causing them to use and abuse drugs and alcohol. Passages Ventura is located in Ventura, California. It is a non-12-step addiction treatment center lead by father and son duo, Chris and Pax Prentiss. Passages has set the standard for addiction treatment that has surpassed expectations beyond measure. The success rate for those who leave Passages is higher than any other treatment center in the world, next to Passages Malibu, which was founded in 2001.

Co-Founder and CEO of Passages, Pax Prentiss, knows first-hand how difficult is to break free from the chains of addiction. For 10 years, Pax was addicted to heroin, cocaine, alcohol and cigarettes and with the help of his father, Chris Prentiss, he was able to overcome his battle with addiction. Together, they designed a programed that successfully helped Pax get sober. After many failed attempts to get sober, Pax finally discovered the why to what was causing him to use. The holistic program which is utilized at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers is what has now saved the lives of thousands of those who have come to Passages for treatment.

“I began asking myself just what my high was about. What did I do when I was high that I didn’t do when I was sober? What was wrong that heroin fixed?” ― Pax Prentiss, The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure

At Passages, we don’t believe that addiction is a disease. Our research shows that people become dependent on drugs and alcohol because of one of these four 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

Since opening Passages Ventura, Chris and Pax have opened a luxury sober living home in Santa Monica, California and an outpatient rehab center in Venice (Abbot Kinney), California. Both of these facilities instill the values and philosophy that Passages has thrived on since 2001. Soon, Passages will open another outpatient rehab and sober living home in Beverlywood, California.

About Passages Malibu & Passages Ventura:

Father and son team Chris and Pax Prentiss founded Passages Malibu in 2001. Its second location, Passages Ventura, first opened its doors in 2009. The two drug & alcohol abuse treatment centers offer an alternative to the 12-Step AA model of addiction treatment by utilizing an innovated and holistic program that focuses on healing the underlying issues of substance dependency, rather than attributing addiction to an incurable disease.  Both Passages Malibu and Passages Ventura accept insurance.

Passages Malibu was named the #1 treatment center in the world by Healthcare Global, one of the “Most Luxurious Places to Dry Out” by Forbes magazine, and the Huffington Post recently acknowledged Passages as a center that “caters to a high-end crowd, with many CEOs, entrepreneurs, and high-powered professionals among its clients.”

The co-founders are also authors of an acclaimed series of addiction treatment books, including their groundbreaking, flagship title, The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure.
