Our people belong to the three-part, Beach House formula for freedom from addiction (people, purpose and passion). That means that our clients receive care from only the most highly trained and experienced therapists well grounded in evidence-based treatment practices. Our therapists are not just good at what they do and highly accredited and certified. Our therapists are also passionate about what they do and consider it only a great honor and joy to help you find freedom from a drug and/or alcohol addiction. “People” — the right people — come first in the Beach House formula for freedom from drug or alcohol addictions. We firmly believe that the right people will help you unlock your own life purpose and passion, so that you can be liberated from the grip of substance abuse. That’s also why we’ve spent so much time and energy building a team whose purpose and passion are contagious, and whose experience in the field of addiction and recovery is unrivaled. And we want you to meet them:
