A statement from our Director:
Today, substance abuse and dependency continues to seriously harm individuals, destroy families, and damage communities. Quality, effective, and affordable treatment is needed to help people learn, change, and grow on their path to recovery.
Skagit Recovery Center is a regionally-recognized and Washington-certified substance disorders treatment center that has helped individuals on the road to recovery for almost 30 years. Serving others is our reason for existing. We say what we believe, and we do what we say. We are caring, consistent, and accountable in everything we say and do. We genuinely care for and support, not only those to whom we provide care, but those with whom we work shoulder-to-shoulder. We work together to achieve our mission of guiding individuals and families toward substance-free, healthy, and happy lives.
Skagit Recovery Center provides the highest standards of client care. This is where values matter. We listen. We trust. We restore hope. We help clients and families rebuild their lives. Put simply, our clients learn to live sober not just get sober. From Prevention to Intervention to Aftercare we are commited to helping you!
