Outpatient Addiction Rehab at Passages Venice | 3 Year Anniversary

“At the bottom of every person's dependency, there is always pain, Discovering the pain and healing it is an essential step in ending dependency.” ― Chris Prentiss, The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure

When Passages Venice opened its doors on August 10, 2015 Co-Founders Chris and Pax Prentiss had one intention in mind, and that was to focus on healing people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Passages Venice is a branch of the Passages Addiction Treatment Centers family and offers non-12 Step outpatient rehab services to those in the metro Los Angeles area.

Over the last three years, Passages Venice has continued to use innovative therapy methods to help its clients discover and heal their underlying conditions causing them to use and abuse drugs and alcohol. The philosophy at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers is directly centered on taking an in-depth look at the four main causes of addiction, which are believed to be the following.

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

This philosophy was created after Pax, the CEO and Co-Founder of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers, experienced firsthand the trenches of addiction. For nearly ten years, Pax was hooked on heroin, cocaine, and alcohol. His father, Chris Prentiss, fought hard to do anything and everything he could to save his son’s life.

After many troublesome years of AA meetings and traditional addiction treatment and relapse, Chris began working closely with holistic doctors and alternative therapy methods to help Pax completely heal from the inside out, leaving his addiction-related issues in the past. It is because of the following therapy methods that Pax is still alive and addiction-free today.

1. Chemical Dependence Counseling
2. Acupuncture
3. Body Work
4. Hypnotherapy
5. Marriage and Family Therapy
6. Various Group Therapy Sessions
7. Life Purpose
8. Continuing Care/ After Care
9. Psychotherapy
10. Spiritual Counseling

It has been nearly 18 years since Pax got sober, and due to his great success of breaking through his barriers he has been able to help treat, inspire, and change the lives of thousands of people from all over the world at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers.

About Passages Addiction Treatment Centers:

Founded by father and son duo, Chris Prentiss and Pax Prentiss, Passages Malibu opened in 2001 with its second location, Passages Ventura, opening in 2009, then Passages Venice Outpatient Rehab in 2015, and Passages Beverlywood Outpatient Rehab in 2018. The four drug and alcohol abuse treatment centers offer an alternative to the 12 Step/AA model of addiction treatment by taking a holistic approach with an innovated program that focuses on the underlying issues of substance dependency, rather than suggesting that addiction is an incurable disease. Passages Malibu, Passages Ventura, and Passages Venice have all earned the coveted JCAHO (Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) accreditation, which has only been given to 6% of the nation's behavioral health treatment programs.

Passages also has a luxurious sober living home in beautiful Santa Monica, California set on the beach, perfectly positioned to make the transition from rehab back to society a strengthening and supportive experience. For more information on Passages Santa Monica Sober Living, please visit or call 424-231-8100.

The co-founders of Passages are also authors of the acclaimed series of treatment books that include their groundbreaking flagship book, "The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure" which can be purchased from along with many other merchandise items.
