At Pacifica, we offer a continuum of care and support for individuals experiencing challenges associated with problematic substance use, and concurrently, mental health and/or trauma. As a provincially recognized in-residence treatment centre since 1977, our primary goal is to meet each individual where they are at, helping them to find their path to self-discovery, self-empowerment, and self-actualization.
Our innovative programs and services bridge the transitional periods when people feel most vulnerable, specifically during pre-admission, primary treatment, and the return to community experiences. Programs and services are offered in-person or virtually in order to enhance access. The continuum is designed to provide two-year touchpoints that assist individuals to transform and rebuild their lives by offering the following:
Pre-Engagement Program;In-residence Primary Treatment Program;Integrative Wellness Program;Resiliency & Trauma Program;Continuing Care Program; and, Alumni Services.
Pacifica is committed to providing innovative and best-in-class programs and services, which lead to enhanced quality of life and well-being, and sustainable self-directed recovery-based solutions.
The Pacifica Treatment Centre is purpose-built and was constructed between 1990 and 1993. Nestled in a Vancouver lower mainland neighbourhood, our home-like facility offers a blend of private rooms, congregate spaces, and tranquil gardens, facilitating privacy and opportunities for reflection while cultivating a therapeutic and engaged community with an enhanced sense of belonging.
Our location is convenient to downtown Vancouver and just one block from a major Skytrain hub. The architecture is California style in design with a large inner meditation courtyard and plenty of skylights and large windows allowing for natural sunlight and connection to nature.
Pacifica embraces equity, diversity, inclusivity, accessibility, and belonging and therefore our centre follows an inclusive program philosophy, inclusive of all genders, orientations, cultures, ethnicities, races, and abilities.
