I'm very happy that Pax Prentiss defeated his many addictions, but they run that Passages Malibu commercial to death on Investigation Discovery. How many people do they think can afford two thousand a day or whatever that rehab costs (probably more).
He badmouths 12 step programs (obviously a swipe at AA over all others) and implies spending a few days in the Malibu sun can cure a lifetime of addiction. Yeah, let's all go stare at the same ocean that Pamela Anderson stares at. That should solve everyone's problems.
The commercial shows a beautiful, fit woman who looks like a gymnast doing tai-chi or something on the lawn of a very expensive-looking and ugly New Age type building. I think they show someone getting a massage (a 2K a day massage, I'm sure) and some palm trees.
I'm so convinced.
And if Pax Prentiss is truly no longer an addict, why is he wearing purple pajamas in the middle of the afternoon?
Or is addiction replaced with membership in a cult.
How can you not think "cult" when you see purple pajamas? In the middle of the Malibu afternoon.
Checking afterwards found this online: "A dry-out session at Passages will cost you $67550 a month. ((((coughs)))) ..."
