Mental illness and addiction affect millions of people every day. Since 1988, West Pines has provided hope, healing, and recovery for patients and their loved ones. Our qualified medical and clinical teams serve adults ages 18 and older with psychiatric or chemical dependency concerns. We also offer integrated treatment for people with co-occurring diagnoses who are affected by both chemical dependency and an emotional or psychiatric disorder. Our holistic approach to treatment focuses on the physical, emotional, social and spiritual well being of each of our patients.

Facility Highlights

  • 14-day Residential Treatment
  • Psycho-educational, motivational, and cognitive behavioral groups
  • Integrated treatment for addiction and psychiatric conditions (co-occuring disorders)

Specialization

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

They seemed to want to discharge patients before they were stable.u got helped to a degree. When I was there, they had little activity as in occupational or recreational. I read now they have a gym. But fir 3 weeks it was watch tv or walk up & down the hallway, back in late 2012 they had no groups so at therapy was it. I did appreciate staff would take you for a walk around their convenience. Need more time with psych dr, not just 5 minutes. Hopefully they have improved care

    Completely inept mental health hospital that is a cash cow that Kaiser Permanente refers patients. Both lack severally in understanding their patients or treating their patients with respect. The only way of leaving is to take all of the drugs they want you to with complete disregard for the patient's experience with them.

    West Pines was an amazing experience, and totally different from what I anticipated inpatient treatment to be like. The therapist and counselors were awesome! A lot of them were recovering addicts themselves, so they had life experience, and could totally relate to everything I was feeling! Everyone was so sincere and caring, encouraging, and supportive! The environment was beautiful, the classes were very helpful, the Phoenix sport gym was awesome! The food was delicious, the kitchen staff were great! The doctors were wonderful! It was a wonderful experience, and I gained so much knowledge and wisdom! Today I am 6 and 1/2 monthss sober! I couldn't have done it without their help!

    The staff was quite frankly odd when I was here and practiced a "gotcha" type approach with patients. I was accused of using substances and told I had tested positive for a substance I had no access to beyond their medication counter. I demanded to see the urine test results but they were never produced. It seemed to me that staff would take a personal dislike to a patient and get them removed from treatment. There was also a weird patient hierarchy with the chairs we sat in. The newer you were, the more uncomfortable your chair, Not conducive to my recovery, Also I was quoted a copay 1p% of what they billed me, Wound up kicking the problem myself. I would recommend you think twice before entrusting yourself or a loved ome here.
    Official Facility Response:

    I am sorry that you had a negative experience at West Pines. We rarely ask patients to leave the facility unless there are serious, credible concerns. Our goal is to provide people with the tools and experience to be successful in their recovery. In terms of the seating arrangement, people do have a tendency to get comfortable in a particular seat, and claim it as their own. Thank you for the feedback that we as the staff need to continually remind patients to not claim seats as their own.
