Addiction is Not a Disease
at Passages Santa Monica


As a client at Passages Santa Monica, we do not label you an addict or an alcoholic. You are merely someone who has used drugs and alcohol to cope with four of the underlying causes of addiction. Those four causes are 1) chemical or neurological imbalance 2) events of the past you have not reconciled with yet 3) current conditions you’re struggling to cope with 4) things you believe that aren’t true. We know that every one of you is a remarkable, capable, and unique individual who needs the right type of treatment program customized to your specific needs so you can live a life free from addiction.

Here are the four underlying conditions that create and maintain addiction. If you’re addicted to drugs and alcohol, one or more of these underlying conditions are present.

No Negative Labeling

At Passages, we do not label you an addict or alcoholic. We choose to empower our clients with the freedom of releasing them of the mindset that they are one way and one way to stay forever. Our program focuses on an uplifting approach to breaking free from addiction, starting with leaving all labels at the door. During your stay with us at Passages Santa Monica, our 24/7 caring and supportive staff will help guide you through the transition from rehab and back into normal society. We want to build you up, not break you down. We want to show you that you are not powerless over your addiction to drugs and alcohol but rather a strong and capable person full of wonderful qualities.
