Passages Malibu Marks National Drug and Alcohol Addiction Recovery Month

Malibu, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013

National Recovery Month happens every September, highlighting the year-round work of addiction treatment. Sponsored and promoted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the month is meant to place a positive spotlight on the efforts of those providing health care to individuals in recovery, clients in treatment, as well as prevention efforts for Americans who might be at risk.

Beginning in 1989, Recovery Month has celebrated the transformational changes that addiction treatment professionals have welcomed into the lives of millions around the country. Recovery professionals know that if their jobs are performed well, their efforts very often go unnoticed to the general population.

National Recovery Month means business as usual at Passages Addiction Treatment Centers in Malibu and Ventura. The two addiction treatment facilities provide the latest and most progressive treatment options available in the industry. Clients from around the world come to the perennially temperate climate of Southern California to enjoy Tai Chi, meditation, life purpose counseling, ocean therapy, as well as more traditional treatment practices like one-on-one psychotherapy and substance abuse counseling.

“We’re proud to work with the exceptional individuals who have come to Passages for treatment,” said Pax Prentiss, CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers. “Everyone who comes through our doors has a unique story and a desire to take back their life. We know that treatment works, people recover, and that healing your past opens doors to a much more fulfilling future.”

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 alcohol & drug 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.
