Malibu Passages

Luxury Rehab in California


Passages Malibu Addiction Treatment Center is a luxury drenched property and since opening in 2001 this palatial estate has aged well into its elegance. Many luxury rehabs in Malibu California tend toward the grandiose yet Passages Malibu comes off as effortless and it’s the little touches of seamless foresight that make the facilities rise majestically above its peers.


At Passages, we focus on healing the underlying conditions that are causing you to use drugs and alcohol. We do not use the 12-Step program because we believe that it teaches a philosophy that is detrimental to healing and can lead to relapse.


This peerless treatment facility places emphasis on healing the underlying symptoms that become the catalyst for addictive behaviors and do so by deploying a true 1:1 treatment model unmatched in the United States.


This center moves beyond the traditional 12-step model with clinically proven state-of-the-art services that keep clients engaged and enthusiastic about healing. The ‘Malibu Method’ does not deal in shame nor lecture clients about disease. The Clinicians will never refer to patients as an ‘addict’ or ‘alcoholic’ and nor will they seek to dis-empower their identities with negativity and blame.


During treatment clients report feeling “empowered” instead of powerless as the treatment modality and temp quickly rises. The clinical approach has been a revolutionary one since 2001 and targets the causes of addiction


The Four Causes of Addiction


Passages Addiction Treatment Center addresses four specific  underlying symptoms of addiction with the philosophy that if an individual is abusing drugs and alcohol, they’ll present with at least one of these underlying conditions, though more likely most, if not all elements will be manifest in some form.


  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


Founding Core Principles of the Passages ‘Malibu Model’


  • A non-12 Step program with a true one-on-one bespoke therapeutic approach.
  • Passages believes that addiction is not a disease and is caused by one or more of four catalysts of addictive behavior.
  • The Malibu Model believes individuals can maintain sobriety without the need for ongoing support from a sponsor.
  • The Passages philosophy is that individuals have the power to triumph over even the most powerful addictive behaviors and that it is extremely detrimental to continually identify yourself as an addict or alcoholic.
  • The founders of Passages believe sobriety to be a natural state that can be maintained by anyone, regardless of denomination, faith or belief in a Higher Power.
