The Philosophy Behind Passages Malibu

Learning to prioritize goals and creating a healthy schedule is at the forefront of the Passages Malibu philosophy. To achieve this, you will receive over 65 hours of specialized therapies and holistic modalities each week. These engaging one-on-one sessions with therapists, counselors and other specialists are designed to teach you new methods of self-reflection and ways to positively occupy your time.

Passages Malibu operates on holistic principles and promotes an all-organic recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. At no point are prescription drugs used to “ween” you from a chemical addiction, as these prescription drugs often have withdrawal symptoms and other side effects of their own. Instead, you will self-administer holistic supplements containing important nutrients and other wholesome ingredients needed to replenish your mind, body and spirit simultaneously.

Above all else, achieving a state of deep relaxation and wellbeing is crucial for remaining open to a holistic recovery. As such, a large portion of your time will be dedicated to reveling in spa-like settings, where you can receive Acupuncture and Massage Therapies as well as meditation, yoga, and other practices from the East. Over time, these powerful exercises and modalities will build an inner-strength and give you the confidence needed to triumph over your addiction.
