Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
The Clearing SPC, an innovative Washington treatment center specializing in a wide variety of addictive and limiting behaviors, today announced that it has received fully approved licensure from the State of Washington Department of Health and the Department of Social and Health Services. The Clearing and its facility on San Juan Island, WA is now a licensed mental health and chemical dependency care facility.
“This is a tremendous milestone for us – the culmination of years of work and effort to bring this vision to life,” said Joe Koelzer, co-founder and CEO, The Clearing. “We started with a blank piece of paper and focused on creating an addiction treatment program that would provide the best opportunity for participants to heal the underlying core issues that were limiting their lives. We truly believe there is not another program like this in the country.”
For those suffering from substance addiction, alcoholism, depression, or other mental health disorders, it’s critically important to address the underlying core issues. Traditional 12 Steps-based residential treatment programs have often had limited success. The Clearing is a 12-steps alternative program that combines a myriad of conventional, spiritual and holistic therapeutic approaches to identify, address, and heal issues at their core.
The Clearing focuses on post-medical detox healing and transformation. The program is one of empowerment and personal responsibility – no shame, no guilt. Unique in the addiction treatment industry, participants enter and leave as a group, receiving 120 hours of uniquely personal individual and group counseling. Underlying core issues are identified and addressed to facilitate lasting healing.
Unlike most traditional residential treatment programs, The Clearing also stands behind its program with an addiction treatment guarantee, providing peace of mind to many considering this important life decision.
