Founded in 1968, Seadrunar is a non-profit treatment facility, one of 183 (42.8 percent) in the state of Washington, that offers medically managed detox,long-term residential treatment and sober-living facilities for men and women 18 and older who are struggling with addiction. Clients must be referred by a local substance use disorder agency.


According to Seadrunar's website, detox generally lasts three to five days and is provided in a 16-bed unit. Treatment is gender-separate, and for residential care, the length of stay is generally 9 to 12 months depending on the individual’s needs.

Seadrunar is operated on the therapeutic community model, in which peers and recovery professionals help residents identify destructive patterns and learn new coping skills.

The first step of long-term residential treatment is a 45-day blackout period. During this period, residents have no contact with anyone outside the facility except for medical or legal reasons. Following this phase, clients are allowed three calls, which have the be approved by staff, and three letters a week. Treatment includes group sessions, individual counseling, and educational seminars.

The Recovery House is designed to provide a gradual re-entry period to clients. While in the sober living house, residents are allowed three calls a week and mail. Programming includes group therapy, educational sessions, and monthly individual counseling. The treatment team focuses on work, social, and academic guidance.

Before moving out, all clients must have employment, housing, and a budget; the facility helps residents find safe, clean housing. All clients may participate in six months of aftercare. Aftercare planning includes at least on group and individual counseling.


Seadrunar's website notes the residential facilities are monitored 24/7 by live-in staff. The program is run by chemical dependency professionals and counselors. Most staff members have graduated from Seadrunar’s program. The five individuals polled by at the time of this writing gave average ratings for the staff.

Staff's level of training and experience: 3.6/5 stars


Seadrunar's website indicates it can accommodate up to 112 residents, including children. Children may enter the residential facility with their parents, and there are state-licensed childcare provisions on-site for children up to the age of 12. Children receive medical care, participate in structured leisure activities, and an elementary school is across the street for school-aged children. The center is located next door to a park with walking trails and a basketball court. To date, the five people surveyed by gave high ratings for accommodations and cleanliness of the facility.

The three alumni polled by to date provided positive feedback, and they all indicated they would recommend Seadrunar Seattle Drug & Narcotic Center. Two of the alumni polled on treatment effectiveness gave four out of five stars, and the other gave five stars.

The three alumni agreed that treatment was tough, but effective. "It's tough, no cake walk. However you learn that stress and life complications can be overcome without drugs...Loved it butust reiterate NOT A CAKE WALK," an alum wrote in a representative review.

Secondary review sites yielded mostly positive feedback. The 17 people who left Google Reviews for the center to date gave an average of 3.9 out of five stars. Positive feedback praised the staff, called it a "life-changing" place, and thanked the center. "Seadrunar is an amazing place! The staff is very caring and wants nothing but the best for its clients," an alum wrote in a representative review on Google.[1]

The few negative opinions raised concerns about the detox program and called the center humiliating.

Of the 14 people who left reviews on the center's unofficial Facebook page to date, 12 gave five out of five stars, while two gave one star reviews. "It saved my life and set me up for success. By having me have a job and find clean and sober housing and have my ged before they would cut me loose," an alum wrote on Facebook. [2]


The three loved ones polled to date also gave positive feedback. They all gave four or five out of five stars when asked if they would recommend Seadrunar Seattle Drug & Narcotic Center. They also gave four or five stars for treatment effectiveness.

However, the loved ones did provide some complaints including bad visiting hours, the cost, and only treating addiction one way. Yet, the loved ones also praised the staff, great treatment programs, and overall effectiveness. "They helped my family member kick a drug habit when no other options had worked. This was a last resort and was a lifesaver," a loved one wrote.


This center accepts Medicaid. For those who do not meet federal low-income requirements, clients are charged $70 per day for long-term residential, $54 per day for Recovery House, and $350 for withdrawal management services.

It continues to help those in need of treatment and has a specialized plan for parents locked into the CPS system and it works when put to good use.

It breaks you of your behavioral problems that lead to you relapsing. A little to harsh with punishment for not following rules. It changed my life dramatically I'm sober today.

At the time, they worked w/all faiths & beliefs. very focused on "their" way of treating addiction. although I didn't agree w/all their policies, this was the 3rd time D had been in rehab & it seems to have worked.
