Our Treatment Team
Pacific Hills' staff of caring professionals provides our clients with some of the most sophisticated treatment technology available. Addiction professionals, therapists, physicians and pastors who understand the process of recovery combine to provide effective treatment, and do so in a caring and nurturing manner.
Successful treatment at Pacific Hills begins with a thorough evaluation of the clients' psychological, physical and spiritual needs. A clinical interview and a psychosocial questionnaire are used by our clinical staff to identify a client's current stage of recovery, from which a detailed, individualized treatment plan is developed.
Each client is assigned a Counselor whose purpose is to participate in the development of an individualized treatment plan in concert with the treatment team, to monitor client's progress and to act as a liaison with each clients support system. Each client is also assigned a licensed therapist who is responsible for holding individual and family (as appropriate) psychotherapy sessions on a weekly basis.
Our treatment team understands how difficult it is to come to terms with the chemical dependency and other addictive disorders. Our staff is committed in their efforts to help our clients learn how to live outside the treatment center with freedom, dignity and a healthy, balanced life-style that matches their individual goals and objectives.
