Family Health Center - Toutle River Campus Philosophy

Drug Abuse Prevention Center – Toutle River Campus provides substance abuse treatment for adults, including long-term residential rehabilitation and intensive inpatient care. Treatment at Toutle River is based on the Therapeutic Communities model, and includes assessments, evaluations and relapse prevention programs. DAPC treatment options promote personal responsibility and contribution to the community of fellow patients.

Areas of Specialization

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

Review by Contributors


Located in a secluded and pristine area of Kelso, Wash., the Family Health Center’s Toutle River Campus is an addiction treatment center that provides an intensive residential inpatient program for adult men and women. This facility used to be operated by the Drug Abuse Prevention Center (DAPC), but in 2015, DAPC became a division of Family Health Center.

The Family Health Center is a nonprofit community health organization with a few clinics throughout Cowlitz, Wahkiakum, and Pacific counties. In addition to offering behavioral health, Family Health Center has family planning, prenatal care, dental services, health insurance, and specialty hospital care.


The intensive residential program typically lasts 30 days, and includes brief counseling and medication management. Treatment is heavily based on community contributions and personal responsibility. According to its website, Family Health Center clients are encouraged to act as positive role models for future clients.

The remote physical setting plays a large role in treatment. The facility’s website reports that treatment must be in a safe, calm, and distraction-free setting in order for clients to heal.


Currently, the facility's website lists four members of the behavioral health team at the Toutle River Campus. Three are chemical dependency professionals (CDP) and one is a chemical dependency professional trainee (CDP-T).

Short biographies for two of the CDP's show they have a total of 12 years of direct experience in the field of chemical dependency.


The Toutle River Campus is located nine miles from the nearest city and 4 miles from the closest highway. Other than that, there is no information provided on the facility's website regarding its living arrangements and related offerings.


While reviews for the center’s Toutle River Campus are limited, reviewers on shared positive experiences. One former client, Frank, commented that the Toutle River Campus offered “the best treatment in the wor[d,” and added that the counselors were “caring.”

An anonymous alum echoed that sentiment on, and wrote that the facility has “a sense of family and love.” Even though this person thought the facility needed “more help with counseling,” they wrote it was “very caring” and gave the top 5-star rating out of five stars to treatment effectiveness as well as meals & nutrition and a 4-star rating to accommodations & amenities.

An alum surveyed by gave mixed ratings of one to four stars out of five stars to the 15 aspects evaluated. The 4-star ratings went to counseling options and recommending the program to others.


Family Health Center accepts Medicare, Washington Apple Health - Medicaid, Tricare, state insurance, and most private health insurance plans. It also offers a sliding fee scale for patients who do not have insurance and whose gross family income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.
