At Pacific Ridge, we believe chemical dependency is a treatable disease. Treatment works best with family involvement in the treatment process, complete abstinence from all mind altering chemicals, and education and counseling in a supportive and encouraging environment. We believe that people have a better chance at recovery when they join a winning team. Many of the staff at Pacific Ridge are examples of recovery at work. They are trained, educated, caring professionals who model recovery in their own lives.
We work with the client and their family to provide the amount of treatment needed. We do not have a predetermined schedule for how long a person must be in treatment. We believe in the treatment of the person and not the processing of people.
We recommend family members or other support persons participate in as many treatment activities as possible, including the intake appointment. There is no extra cost for support person involvement.
We believe residential treatment is the beginning of the recovery process, and refer residents to outpatient treatment centers in their home area to continue their recovery.
