Intensive Residential Treatment provides individuals with alcohol and/or drug dependencies the opportunity to understand their pattern of use, accept the consequences and make personal changes that promote an alcohol and drug-free lifestyle. Pacifica uses a comprehensive, client-responsive approach that works with an individual’s sense of self in terms of thoughts, feelings, physical health, family and community. At Pacifica Treatment Centre, we have worked with over 12,000 clients since 1977.

It has become increasingly apparent over the years that many clients require services that help them make the transition into and out of intensive therapy. For some people, this kind of assistance can mean the difference between long-term recovery success or chronic relapses to their addiction. In the spirit of being responsive to the unique needs of individuals and the expanding needs of the system of care, we offer three levels of a comprehensive treatment program, as well as private rooms for all clients.
