How Was Pax Finally Able to Win His Battle Against Heroin–a Battle He’d Lost Time and Time Again?

September 29, 2010

CHICAGO, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ — Until Chris Prentiss discovered his son Pax suffered from addiction to heroin and alcohol, the thought of any type of treatment for addiction was relatively foreign to him. For ten years, Chris helped Pax battle heroin in the fight for his life. All they heard from the specialists in the addiction field was the same sad story: “Alcoholism and addiction are incurable diseases and your son will be an addict and an alcoholic for the rest of his life.” They refused to believe them.

Chris Prentiss, the best-selling author of The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure and co-founder of Passages Malibu-Addiction Cure Center in Malibu, California, set out to change the addiction treatment paradigm.

A different type of treatment model

Consistent with his intention to change the belief that addiction is an incurable disease, Chris Prentiss wrote the book The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure in order to give others hope and share with them the freedom, giving revolutionary information that is curing people of their dependencies the world over. “Alcoholism and addiction are not diseases,” says Chris. “You are not an alcoholic or addict and you are not incurably diseased. Like my son Pax, you have merely become dependent on substances to cope with underlying conditions. When you discover and heal those underlying conditions, your dependency will cease completely and forever.” It was Chris Prentiss’ foresight and will to change the paradigm of the treatment model that was the single largest contributing factor in saving his son’s life.

Today, Pax Prentiss, co-founder of Passages Malibu-Addiction Cure Center, and son of the catalyst behind the new addiction treatment model, has just celebrated his 10th year of being free from the bondage of addiction. He now carries the Passages torch to light the way for generations to come. Read more…
