Here, our team of professionals is committed to supplying only the most tried and true treatments for those grappling with these conditions within a space that encourages healing and hope.

Our educated and compassionate staff members work endlessly to ensure that they are offering the best care possible to each and every adult who becomes a patient at our treatment center. This is done by providing skills-based care that is customized according to the needs of each patient.

What We Treat

We believe that each and every individual who walks through our doors possesses the strength and perseverance to achieve lasting recovery from their chemical dependency, mental illness, or a combination of both. At Pacific Grove, we treat the following forms of mental illness:

  • Depression

Therefore, regardless of if an individual is struggling with one or more of these conditions, we are prepared to provide the highest quality treatment that will help address any and all concerns surrounding one’s condition.

Comprehensive Programming

Realizing that each individual who comes to us for care possesses his or her own treatment needs, we go to all ends to ensure that our patients’ treatment plans are entirely individualized so that they obtain the level of care necessary to provide them with the best treatment outcomes.

To better determine what the most appropriate course of care is for our patients, we ensure that we discuss all concerns within a confidential manner amongst our team of clinicians so that the most effective treatment plan is developed.

The programs and types of care that we offer include the following:
