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.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders TreatmentThese two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Individualized TreatmentSome facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances.
