Expanded Residential Treatment Program
Our treatment program began in New Westminster in the YMCA back in 1977. In 1991, the plans for a custom-designed treatment centre were drawn up. We moved to our current location in a residential neighbourhood in Vancouver in 1992.
We have gone through many changes in how we work with clients over the years. In 2000 we added two new levels to our program in order to help clients make the transition into and out of intensive therapy. This innovation is now being adopted by other treatment programs around the province because of how successful it has been for clients. We also run a number of aftercare programs for alumni and other clients.
Pacifica has built a strong reputation for high quality service for clients, innovative and effective programing and creative solutions to ongoing challenges in maintaining and developing our facility. All our counsellors are highly trained and have at least a Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology or Social Work. Many have been working as counsellors in this field for over ten years. A number of our staff have worked at Pacifica for over 14 years, which shows the dedication and reward we get from working here.
