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.
