It is our passion to serve people all across the west coast and north west regions of the United States find the best care available. We understand that addiction effects loved ones as much as it does those suffering personally. We strive to create a safe, supportive, and medically supervised environment for our patients their families. Successful addiction is possible.

Whether you are seeking treatment or simply looking for information or answers to questions, we would love to help in any way that we can. We are available 24/7. At Aspire Health Network, we understand that addiction is complex – as complex as the people and families it affects. Physical, psychological, and spiritual dimensions all play a role in substance abuse disorders. That’s why Aspire Recovery doesn't just treat drug and alcohol problems, but every related issue that patients and their families face.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

JoshuaI�ve bee. n to a couple IOP programs and the thing that sets Aspire apart from the others are the employees. It makes a considerable difference in MY recovery when you can tell that the staff genuinely care about you and are not just there for a paycheck. I could really connect with the therapist and that�s hard to find, for me at least. The weekly outings are great! Hikes, kayaking, beach, volleyball, basketball, movies. Aspire has allowed me to start rebuilding the foundation in my family relationships and I�m beyond grateful for that.
