Accountability in Addiction Recovery | Passages Holistic Rehab

How to Have Accountability in Addiction Recovery

By Jennifer McDougall

“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.” –   Sigmund Freud

Give a person freedom and see what they do with it. You can tell a lot about a person’s habits, beliefs, and priorities when you hand them freedom. This, of course, comes with great responsibility, especially for someone in addiction recovery.

Most people who have struggled with substance abuse related issues know how important it is to have someone help them be accountable for their actions so that they can stay on the right path. Accountability helps us reach our goals and be the successful individual we hope and work hard to be. Knowing that you have to show up for that meeting or appointment in the morning will help you be less tempted to get in trouble the night before. You will most likely be more motivated to have a relaxing, drug, and alcohol-free evening so you can wake up and feel healthy and energized in the morning.

For many people in recovery, the fear of going back to old ways, and unhealthy habits keep them pushing forward to grow and develop new and improved lifestyle choices they can feel happy about. Having a carefully laid out course of action to stay accountable is the best way to be clear and focused on your sobriety. Here are 7 helpful tips.

  1. Let your friends and family know about your sobriety.
  2. Find an accountability partner to check in with as often as you need.
  3. Keep a physical and mental list of what you have to lose.
  4. Stay closely connected to those who support your sobriety.
  5. Be consistent in your routine and responsibilities.
  6. Set weekly and daily goals for yourself and cross them off as you go.
  7. Schedule social, fitness, and business appointments for the morning to keep you from being tempted to stray off course in the evening hours.

Break Free from Addiction - End the Cycle

How to End an Addiction to Drugs and Alcohol

By Jennifer McDougall

Falling into the cycle of addiction can happen to anyone and when treating a substance abuse related issue, one-sized-fits-all recover models simply are not the most effective way of healing. This is why at Passages, we customize a program tailored to each client’s individual needs. Our non-12 Step addiction treatment therapy focuses on healing the underlying condition driving a person to use and abuse drugs and alcohol.

Unlike other rehab centers, 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

Our empowering and non-12 step treatment methods include:

  1. Acupressure and Massage
  2. Acupuncture
  3. Adventure Therapy
  4. Art Therapy
  5. Blood Chemistry Analysis
  6. Chemical Dependency Counseling
  7. Continuing Care
  8. Hypnotherapy
  9. Marriage and Family Therapy
  10. Meditation Therapy
  11. Physical Fitness
  12. Psychotherapy
  13. Sound Therapy
  14. Spiritual Counseling
  15. Tai Chi
  16. Yoga

Leaving Addiction and Dismantling Fear: Consciousness Drained of All Doubts

Leaving Addiction and Dismantling Fear: Consciousness Drained of All Doubts

By Dr. Kerri Heath

I look forward to meeting with the owner of Passages Malibu, Chris Prentiss, who has dedicated his entire life to helping others reach their highest potential.  Being in the same room with someone who is committed to helping you expand and grow is not an opportunity to take for granted.  I always listen closely to his every word and carefully ask questions that will take me to a higher level of awareness.  He is a wise sage who appears to have found the fountain of youth and the wisdom of the ages.

In one of my afternoons with Chris Prentiss, he shared that the goal in life should be “consciousness drained of all doubt(s),” which in layman’s terms means we should try to live without fear.  I had to write this down and think about it for a while before I fully grasped its meaning.  Truly, fear is the lowest energy there is.  We collect so much fear in our lives that drive us to do things based on the negative messages we tell ourselves.  And ultimately these fears and doubts can lead to addictions and other negative consequences.  If we can live a life beyond fears, we can create a world that is full of freedom and light.  Chris shared a story about being hit in the head by a rock when he was walking along a riverbed one day.  He says the rock fell from 35 feet and crushed his skull, but as he lay on the ground bleeding he was not afraid.  Instead, he thought to himself, “I can’t wait to see what amazing thing will come as a result of this suffering.” He shared that as a result of the blow, he would later find out that he could fully understand spiritual texts that he was unable to interpret prior to his accident.  He stated, “I would get hit in the head by a rock any day to have that ability.” The expectation that great things happen on the other side of suffering is only one example of what can happen when we don’t allow fear to grasp our minds and steal our joy.  I have been testing this theory out in my everyday life and have not been disappointed to find a blessing on the other side of every negative circumstance.  I am so grateful for this lesson that Chris taught me that afternoon.

Chris has an unbridled joy and the clients at Passages have access to him on a regular basis throughout their journey towards healing.  His happiness is contagious.  As he tells funny stories the tears from laughter stream down his face.  This type of energy can only come from a man that has truly found the happiness in life and he is willing to offer the secrets to that kingdom over to anyone who will listen.

I am a spiritual seeker.  I have read countless books and spent thousands of hours trying to understand the meaning of life and discover my true calling.  After only three meetings with Chris, and reading several of his books on metaphysics and spiritual principles for living, I am convinced that he is a true source of inspiration.  He may be the most underrated thing about Passages.  If you are also searching for answers and want to know why you are here on this planet and what you are supposed to do with your remaining days on earth, Chris will be there to guide you along your journey.  He found a way to create a safe passage for his beloved son to move from a life enslaved to substance abuse into a life of meaning and purpose, and now he wants to offer you the same passage.

What is Art Therapy | Substance Abuse Treatment at Passages Rehab

By Susan Finley, Ed.D., NCC

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” -Michelangelo

Artistic and creative expression has a connection to our mental health. In recent years, the use of art therapy has successfully been incorporated into substance use and addiction treatment plans. You do not have to be Michelangelo to benefit from art therapy; all you need is an open mind and willingness to explore your creative side.

At Passages Malibu, art therapy includes several artistic mediums. These include drawing, painting, watercolors, and collages. The vision board, for example, is a collage of images, pictures, clippings, words, or other materials that represent your goals, hopes, and dreams in life.

            “Art Therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self- esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.  Through integrative methods, art therapy engages the mind, body, and spirit in ways that are distinct from verbal articulation alone.” (The American Art Therapy Association)

It is not always what we say that sheds light on our well being, it’s how we express ourselves through what we create. Creativity in art therapy addresses developmental, motivational, affective and cognitive processes. It allows for the subconscious (mental processing without conscious awareness) to bring underlying emotions safely to the surface. For this reason, it is extremely helpful for individuals to process otherwise scary or confusing thoughts, feelings, and memories through artistic expression.

A feeling of isolation is common among those suffering from substance use and addiction. Bringing people together through the arts is a positive way to make a healing connection. A therapist will work with his/her client to effectively support personal and relational treatment goals. Developing a shared bond with the counselor and others through creative expression is an integral part of art therapy.


Susan Finley, Ed.D., NCC is a published researcher, educator, and social media consultant. She is a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC) (e-therapy) and Suicide Prevention Instructor (QPR) under the National Board for Certified Counselors.

Learning to be With Your Pain Instead of Escaping It

By Jennifer McDougall

Pain is the most common reason behind addiction. It comes in many forms; physical, mental, and emotional pain. It stems from the brain and flows into your central nervous system. An extreme amount of pain and discomfort can potentially send you right over the edge, but if you listen closely, it can also be the most helpful thing that can happen for you. The majority of people who seek medical attention or temporarily relief through the use of drugs and alcohol do so, because they are experiencing some sort of pain. It is in fact, a survival mechanism to help protect your body. Those who are born without the ability to feel things due to issues within the central nervous system typically do not live long healthy lives. We must understand the importance of being able to feel everything our bodies are trying to communicate to us. When people use drugs and alcohol to numb their pain, their perceptions towards situations are altered, along with their consciousness and they increase the risk of making really lousy decisions.

Whether it’s from abuse (of any kind), trauma, fear, anxiety, or physical ailments; we have all felt pain one way or another. Throughout this journey in life, we must all learn to adjust to the changes that come and go. One thing that is guaranteed is change itself. Change is inevitable. What is causing your pain and sorrow one day could be gone the next.  By trying to escape pain there is an immense potential of making matters extremely worse for ourselves and those we love. It’s important to be fully conscious and aware of our surroundings so that we can make good decisions and know when something is not right. Because of perhaps the horrible things that have happened in your life your body reminds you when something feels off or dangerous. When our heart breaks for the first time we learn to be more cautious in future relationships. When we cut our finger slicing veggies, or burn our hand on a hot pan, we learn to be more careful in the kitchen. When we have our first car accident we learn to be more aware of others on the road and pay close attention to what’s going on around us at all times. Pain teaches us lessons in life and that’s something we shouldn’t ignore.

There are times in your life when you may be stressed, overwhelmed, broken, hurt beyond belief, and sad over a loss. Pain is a natural feeling that is meant to be felt. To be with your pain means to accept what is happening in your life and throughout your body. We have a natural right to feel everything that this sometimes cruel and unfair world throws at us. The best part about all of it is that you have a choice. You can either choose to accept what is, let go of what is not (anymore), and cope with an attitude of optimism that circumstances will improve.

Your mind and body must heal from the pain you have experienced over time. This can be done by using therapy methods such as the ones used at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers. For anyone who is or has suffered with emotional, mental, or physical pain, knows the discomfort that can be debilitating. When you experience pain there is an instant shock-wave like feeling that erupts and at times, it feels so uncontrollable. When this happens, you must first practice deep breathing and try to remain calm.

Reaching for the bottle or a substance to get high isn’t the solution. When you find yourself in a situation where you are sinking deep with a weight of pain; call a friend, go for a quiet walk, have a cup of tea, write in a private journal, or turn up your favorite song and sing it out loud. Life is better when you can learn to manage your pain instead of escaping it. Other means of pain relieve can also be helpful such as acupuncture, massage, meditation, and stretching exercises. A healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, and 7-8 hours of nightly rest will also help.

10 Signs You Are Addicted to Love

By: Jennifer McDougall

Just as alcohol, cocaine, ecstasy, and heroin provide a temporary sense of escape for a person from their reality, anyone who is addicted to love, seeks similar relief and can face severe physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. Someone who is addicted to love develops obsessive behaviors and thoughts. They get high on the fantasy they create in their head about a particular person or connection, or likewise, they get addicted to the love, intimacy, and physical connection they feel when they are with a partner. That feeling is their dope, and they feel they need it like the oxygen they breathe in order to survive.

In many cases, a person who is addicted to love will also find themselves in a co-dependent relationship, which is very common. They may turn to drugs and alcohol to temporarily numb the pain from the deep desire for the other person or pain they feel from rejection. They also feel withdrawal symptoms when they are not with the one they love.

Love addiction is not as uncommon as most people think. Many people are not as aware or understand the addiction, so they do not pay much attention to the signs. And, just like drugs and alcohol, anyone who is addicted to love or in a co-dependent relationship should seek therapy, and proper treatment in order to heal the underlying conditions before the cycle escalates, and the dependency becomes more intense and life-threatening.

Here are ten significant signs to tell if you are addicted to love:

  1. You know the relationship you’re in is terrible for you, and you can physically feel how unhealthy being in the relationship is, yet you do not make an adequate effort to end it.
  2. Fear and anxiety consume you at the thought of ending the relationship.
  3. You make shallow excuses and create reasons why you should stay in the relationship.
  4. After you eventually end a relationship, you suffer painful withdrawal symptoms (and/or unhealthy behaviors) such as insomnia, vomiting, nausea, deep depression, panic attacks, dramatic weight changes, anger, rage, emptiness, complete loss of purpose, stalking, suicidal thoughts, begging for a chance to be connected, and dramatic episodes (sometimes very violent).
  5. You lower your standards when it comes to dating someone to avoid being alone.
  6. Every time you have the urge to contact the other person, you always say to yourself “one more text,” or “one more phone call” just as someone addicted to drugs or alcohol would say about using “just this one last time.”
  7. Your relationship or love interest consumes your day to day life, separating you from friends and family, your goals, and all of your true, authentic passions that bring you honest joy and happiness.
  8. You would give up anything and everything in the world to be with someone, even after they have broken up with you multiple times, cheated on you, lied to you, and purposely fed your insecurities.
  9. Obsessive behaviors such as excessive text messages, phone calls, stalking on and off-line, checking your cell phone every couple minutes to see if they have contacted you, fantasizing about them and the relationship you could have, or picking out what kind of dish wear and curtains you would buy for your first home while you two are out shopping on your first.
  10. You feel as if you cannot live or be happy without this person. You want to be around them, with them, just near them all the time. When you are away from them, you feel depressed, sad, and lonely. When they aren’t reciprocating the connection you think exists, you feel a lack of drive and passion. It is as if you need this person in your life to be happy and survive.


What to do:

The most important thing to do is to find out the reason why. In order to overcome addiction, you must understand why you are doing what you are doing. Many people who have an addiction to love, like drug or alcohol addictions, have underlying issues causing them to chase the euphoric feeling that physical and emotional connections bring them, which is similar to cocaine addiction.

We suggest looking within yourself to find the underlying issue (abandonment, lack of self -esteem, or traumatic experiences) so that you can move on and live an addiction-free and fulfilling life. If you need professional help, do not hesitate to seek therapy and professional treatment before the situation becomes life-threatening.

Animal-Assisted Therapy and Addiction

Animal-assisted therapy (particularly Equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) and canine therapy) is one of the most effective forms of experiential therapy available and has proven to be fun, nurturing, and very therapeutically beneficial for clients in inpatient drug and alcohol
treatment centers. With animal assisted therapy, rather than talking to a therapist, clients interact with a horse or dog in a series of exercises designed to strengthen and develop non-verbal and verbal communication, creative thinking, problem solving, leadership, trust, responsibility, confidence and relationship skills. Animal-assisted therapy has been shown to
be successful in helping individuals with numerous issues other than just substance abuse, including eating disorders, adolescents with emotional problems, and with the rehabilitation of prison inmates.  The distinctive experience of bonding with an animal offers several advantages. Working with an animal often allows individuals to let their guard down and reduce stress, as studies have shown that individuals actually have lower heart rates and stress levels when in the presence of animals.   In addition,animals have the unique ability to mirror exactly what human body language is telling them; an individual’s reaction to the animal and the animal’s reaction them helps to highlight the behaviors, feelings and relationships that have caused pain and fed an addiction.

Diagnostic Tests at Residential Drug Treatment Centers

Diagnostic tests help establish whether there are existing underlying physical conditions causing drug or alcohol dependency to take hold. Establishing baseline measures of metabolism, critical vitamins, minerals, and other organic compounds can help recovery teams at residential drug treatment centers to calibrate and foster healing. Diagnostic tests can be analyzed and their conclusions put into action plans to help create and implement effective recovery treatment that’s tailored to the patient’s body and medical history.

Diagnostic Tests at Residential Drug Treatment Centers

Diagnostic tests are commonly administered at residential drug treatment centers in order to assess physical well-being at a cellular level. Diagnostic testing in the wake of drug and alcohol addiction also measures complex biological processes and issues that simply cannot be detected by surface examinations.

  • Amino Acids
    The levels of the 38 amino acids in the body play a critical role in the absorption and processing of nutrients. Abnormal levels may indicate the body is not be getting all the vitamins and minerals necessary to properly function, and may suggest the presence of underlying problems that require attention.
  • Trace Elements
    Some trace elements may be toxic to the body. Establishing the levels of these elements (such as copper, magnesium, and potassium) in the blood can shed light on damage caused by years of drug use, allowing your treatment team to more accurately craft your personalized recovery plans.
  • Metabolism
    Years of drug abuse alters the how the body metabolizes food and converts it into energy. Abnormal levels of organic acids can indicate metabolic problems and affect recovery and long-term sobriety. Using their years of experience in the recovery field, doctors can chart a course to reestablish a healthy metabolic rate. Diagnostic testing can reoccur at various points during your stay at a residential drug treatment center, in order to monitor your recovery and refine your treatment.
  • Antioxidants
    A common diagnostic test is the oxidative stress test, designed to measure levels of beneficial antioxidants in the body. These antioxidants are critical for an effective immune system and help reduce the presence of free radicals that can cause damage to our body at a cellular level. Low levels of antioxidants can be treated to promote healing and prevent further damage to the body.

Advantages to Onsite Detox Rehab Facilities

After deciding to receive treatment for alcohol dependency, the first stage of recovery is detoxification. This process is necessary to fully free your body of alcohol and to begin the process of restoration of your body and brain to its natural pre-alcohol state, known as homeostasis. There are several advantages to enrolling in an onsite detox rehab facility, all of which increase your chances of lasting sobriety after recovery.

Onsite detox rehab facilities are staffed with medical professionals focused on guiding you through the alcohol detox process. These physicians, nurses and clinicians are experts in their field, with years of hands-on experience in the addiction field. Medical staff can help mitigate physical and emotional discomfort during the alcohol withdrawal process, naturally eliminating cravings. This allows the body to purge itself of toxins and begin to heal, while the body’s hormones and neurochemicals adjust to their natural levels, positively affecting mood while allowing withdrawal pangs to subside.

Advantages to Onsite Detox Rehab Facilities

Onsite rehab facilities allow doctors and staff to closely monitor individuals as alcohol leaves their systems. Medical staff should monitor your vital signs and measure blood chemistry to anticipate and prevent complications. Because the detox process differs for each person—and because each individual’s chemical makeup is unique—individualized care becomes critical in order to ensure successful detox.

Onsite detox rehab facilities can help patients heal by measuring and balancing their nutritional needs. By providing calibrated nutrition, herbal supplements and nutrients, onsite detox rehab facilities can help make the detoxification process easier by correcting physical imbalances caused by years of alcohol use.

Additionally, one advantage of onsite detox rehab facilities is its ability to establish a continuity of care between the detoxification and recovery processes. Therapists get to know you on a first-name basis, and begin their work right away as soon as you finish detoxing from drugs, alcohol and other toxins. Onsite detox rehab facilities provide a seamless transition to the next steps of recovery in a familiar, warm atmosphere, allowing you to focus on emotional healing without battling cravings for drugs and alcohol.

Natural Therapy Methods in Holistic Alcohol Rehab Centers

Natural Therapy Methods in Holistic Alcohol Rehab Centers

Natural treatments used in inpatient holistic alcohol rehab can help ease withdrawal and promote the body’s natural healing abilities. Alcoholism taxes the body’s systems, and initiates chemical changes in the brain that can lead to decreased energy, depression, and anxiety. Thankfully, these symptoms can be alleviated without medication, through all-natural treatments offered by inpatient holistic alcohol rehab programs.

Natural Treatments Used in Inpatient Holistic Alcohol Rehab

Holistic alcohol rehab enjoys a high success rate because it takes a comprehensive approach to healing without endangering your recovery with, unnecessary medications. Here are just a few of the natural treatments that inpatient holistic alcohol rehab programs can provide for you, to alleviate withdrawal and help bring your body back to a state of harmony and balance.

  • Nutritional Services
    During alcohol addiction, many dependent individuals become deficient in a host of vital nutrients the body needs in order to function optimally. Inpatient holistic alcohol rehab programs will offer the services of a nutritionist, to help guide your diet and ensure your body’s healing.
  • Herbal Supplements
    Natural herbs can aid the inpatient holistic alcohol recovery experience, by replenishing vital vitamins and minerals that have become deficient throughout years of alcohol addiction. Many alcohol dependent individuals, for instance, have extremely low levels of folic acid and thiamine, which can lead to brain damage when levels of these specific B vitamins dip too low. Holistic inpatient alcohol rehab programs can also offer natural remedies to promote alertness, calm, circulation, and detoxification, without harmful side effects or addiction potential.
  • Acupuncture and Acupressure
    Traditional Chinese Medicine can offer stress relief, promote energy flow, and encourage healing within the body through acupuncture and acupressure. Inpatient holistic alcohol rehab centers will often offer a combination of Western and Eastern medicine, to help reestablish homeostasis (balance) within the body.
  • Fitness Programs
    Many inpatient holistic alcohol rehab centers will offer fitness programs to gather strength, build endurance and alleviate stress. Additionally, exercise plays an important part in alcohol recovery, as it releases endorphins—the body’s natural sources of happiness and energy.
  • Hypnotherapy
    Sometimes, the symptoms we experience in our bodies have psychological root causes, as the body responds to stress, anxiety, and trauma. Hypnotherapy can be helpful for those who have trouble verbalizing their emotions—or for those who have repressed trauma. Hypnotherapy can also be useful in removing negative self beliefs, promoting self confidence, and uncovering underlying causes for alcohol addiction.

Reasons to Choose Luxury Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

Quite often, luxury inpatient alcohol rehab centers remain overlooked because patients assume they cannot afford high-end alcohol rehab experiences. However, luxury inpatient alcohol rehab centers often offer the highest level of return on investment for those seeking alcoholism recovery. Boasting world-class experts in a host of disciplines, nutrition and exercise programs, and plenty of individualized attention, many luxury inpatient alcohol rehab centers provide a level of service—and corresponding success rates—that are truly unmatched.

Reasons to Choose Luxury Inpatient Alcohol Rehab

Luxury inpatient alcohol rehab can provide a customized recovery experience that provides alcohol dependent individuals with the tools they need to get and stay sober. Here are just a few of the reasons you might want to consider choosing inpatient alcohol rehab.

  • Individualized Attention and Therapy
    Many alcohol rehab centers use group therapy settings to lower overhead and reduce cost. However, the painful experiences that have contributed to the psychological addiction to alcohol may be too private to share with strangers. Luxury inpatient alcohol rehab provides safe, one-on-one therapy sessions with confidential therapists who customize your counseling experience to your life, relationships, goals, and personality. Additionally, luxury inpatient alcohol rehab centers tend to have lower patient-to-staff ratios, allowing you more attention and care from physicians, nutritionists, and other addiction professionals.
  • Alternative Addiction Therapies
    Luxury inpatient alcohol rehab centers have the bandwidth to offer alternative therapies alongside traditional medicine and counseling. Research has shown that even a single alternative therapy integrated into the recovery experience can triple the rates of successful sobriety.
  • Higher Levels of Dignity
    Due to higher occupancy and less progressive methodology, many rehab centers enforce needless regulations and assign chores to guests at their facilities. Luxury inpatient alcohol rehab facilities are adequately staffed to eliminate the need for patient contribution to maintenance and can provide individualized supervision and guidance without the need for blanket restrictions.
  • Confidentiality and Discretion
    Luxury inpatient alcohol rehab centers can provide a more confidential, discrete alcohol rehab experience. Often tucked away in highly scenic locales, luxury alcohol rehab centers provide a haven for executives and celebrities, as well as those who simply desire treatment in the most private settings.
  • World-class Staff
    Many rehab centers save money by lowering the number of offerings or require fewer qualifications of the treatment staff. Luxury inpatient alcohol rehab centers, however, can offer the best physicians, psychotherapists, nutritionists, fitness experts, massage therapists and alternative medicine practitioners to their guests, to maximize their success rates. Gourmet, nutritious food is prepared daily, and every detail is taken care of so that guests can focus on their reason for being in rehab—obtaining the sobriety they deserve.
