Passages Malibu Addiction Treatment Centers today announced a free giveaway of their flagship title The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure for returning military service personnel. June 27th was Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness (PTSD) Day and military staff members are disproportionately affected by PTSD.

It wasn’t until 1980 that PTSD was formally recognized as a psychological disorder, though symptoms characteristic of PTSD have been noted in military personnel for hundreds of years. As many as 20% of returning veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq experience symptoms of PTSD. It is estimated that 2/3 of all cases are not reported as some soldiers fear it will hurt their careers or carry other negative stigma.

Until September 30th, 2013, The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure will be available for only the cost of shipping. Visit the Passages Wellness Store and use the promo code MILITARYSERVICE at checkout to take advantage of the exclusive and limited time offer.

“In our experience, underlying issues like post-traumatic stress disorder are the key drivers of addictive behavior,” said Pax Prentiss, CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers. “The ongoing pain and trauma associated with combat can have dire consequences including depression, substance & alcohol abuse, and in extreme cases, suicide. The book is a great place to start for individuals who are looking to address their underlying issues. We’ve helped heal the addictions of thousands of people from all walks of life and are always honored when people choose to come to Passages.”

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.
