Welcome to Pacifica Recovery Services!
Recovery Services has provided a warm, caring and supportive setting for recovery beginning in 2005. Our outpatient setting provides the most confidential and caring environment for guidance and hope. Of the hundreds of clients we have treated, our client satisfaction is very high. Whether struggling with a substance abuse problem or an eating disorder, we are here to help.
The knowledge of the therapy team, the support and kindness of the groups. Also being able to be honest and to hear others. I feel accepted and challenged to make the changes. I like a group - how we can call each other on issues.
"Spending time at Pacifica was the most helpful thing I could have ever done. I learned what is an eating disorder and the why question on my eating and a much better understanding. Started to learn how to change what I do with food and feelings. The kindness and support of everyone at Pacifica was the best"
"Being able to talk at every meeting, doing homework, writing letters, all the support, being in a comfortable environment, the sessions learning from Jim"
The whole group therapy was really helpful to get input from both Jim and the other members. Everyone was very receptive and supportive, and I feel that I understand myself much better.
The sense of support and community at Pacifica is incredible. The staff is amazing and creates a safe space for patients.
What can I expect in the first session when I see a therapist?
When you call Pacifica, you will have a live person answering the phone. If for some reason it goes to our voice mail, you will receive a call back very quickly. You may ask any questions about our services and we will take time to answer them. If you need either eating disorder services or substance abuse services, we will take your information, check your health insurance, and schedule an assessment with Jim Rhoads, our founder and director. The assessment will be scheduled in the next day or two.
The assessment will take about an hour. If you are an adolescent or have a concerned family member with you, a family assessment will also be conducted. Upon completing the assessment(s), he will design an individual program for you. You will be asked to identify specific goals that you would like to address while in the program. Unfortunately, the staff will then provide you will the various forms to complete that are required by our certification and accreditation. These forms can be completed here or at home. We will then orient you to the program, the schedule, the meeting places and the facility. Pacifica is a very warm and home-style setting where we want you to feel welcome and supported. We will review the benefits of your heath insurance and make arrangements for out of pocket expenses. We have the ability to discount and make payment plans based upon need. We will then schedule your start date and you will be ready to enter recovery.
