Adventure Therapy @ Passages Malibu

At Passages, we understand that for treatment to work, our clients need more than just traditional therapy and group meetings, said Pax Prentiss, CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers.

This past September 22nd marked 2013’s official passage of summer into fall. As the heat from summer eases, Passages Malibu is using the opportunity to offer a more well-rounded selection of Adventure Therapy options.

Adventure Therapy at Passages Malibu includes a wide variety of engaging outdoor activities meant to build up self-confidence and stimulate individual growth. Fall in the coastal Southern California climate allows for hiking, biking, tennis, and kayaking to be enjoyed to the fullest, as part of a more robust line-up of Adventure Therapy choices.

Along with a balanced schedule of traditional therapy methods, coastal scenery, and luxurious amenities, Adventure Therapy helps Passages clientele remain active, enhance their leadership skills, and overcome fears that may have hindered their personal development. 22 different therapy methods are currently available at Passages Malibu.

“At Passages, we understand that for treatment to work, our clients need more than just traditional therapy and group meetings,” said Pax Prentiss, CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers. “Adventure Therapy is one of several exciting treatment methods that fall outside of the mainstream. It’s not surprising that our alternative therapy options are also the enjoyed activities by our clients. We’ve found that a well-rounded, holistic approach to addiction treatment is the best way to inspire individuals to begin the healing process and, with the right guidance, take back their lives.”

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 a holistic program that focuses on the underlying issues of substance dependency, rather than attributing addiction to an incurable disease.

Both Passages Malibu and Passages Ventura accept insurance and each have earned the coveted Joint Commission (JCAHO) accreditation, which has only been given to 6% of the nation’s behavioral health treatment programs.

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.
