In partnership with Statista, Newsweek named 200 of the best treatment centers nationwide. Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers was ranked highest out of 5 in Washington State.

Lakeside Milam Recovery Centers, a leading provider of substance use disorder treatment services in Western Washington, has been recognized by Newsweek Magazine as one of the best addiction treatment centers in America and #1 in Washington State. Lakeside-Milam was one of only 200 treatment centers nationwide and 5 within the state of Washington to make the list.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from Newsweek,” said Carl Kester, CEO. “It reinforces our belief that at Lakeside-Milam we provide the finest addiction treatment available anywhere. It is a testament to the excellence of our staff and the evidenced based care that they provide. I am proud to work alongside them.”

In partnership with Statista, Newsweek utilized data provided by SAMHSA and surveyed thousands of addiction professionals, such as medical doctors, therapists, and counselors in selecting the best treatment providers.

The criteria included:

  • Quality of Care
  • Quality of Service
  • Quality of Follow Up Care
  • Accommodations and Amenities

“The fact that part of the criteria for this honor was the recommendation of physicians, therapists, and counselors outside of our organization makes this particularly meaningful for us,” said JP Liddle, Vice President of Business Development. “We are humbled by their continued trust in us to help their patients who suffer from a substance use disorder.”


With over 35 years of experience, Lakeside-Milam has served the Pacific Northwest by providing a full continuum of care. Guided by the book, Under the Influence, by Dr. James Milam and Katherine Ketcham, Lakeside-Milam has helped those struggling with substance abuse by providing quality structure, education, and support. Our goal is for people to recognize that recovery is possible and that they can achieve lasting recovery.
