About Pax House

Pax House uses the evidence-based therapeutic technique known as Motivational Interviewing (MI). MI is a non-judgmental, non-confrontational, and non-adversarial approach that attempts to increase an individual’s awareness of the full potential impact of their actions and behaviors. The program helps them envision a better future for themselves and find the motivation to achieve it. People change their sense of what is possible for their lives when they begin to fully grasp what might be gained through change. Pax House works with each participant to access the critical hope and motivation needed to change a particular behavior or life circumstance not consistent with their renewed vision for their own lives.

Pax House holds a very special place in my heart, and I am forever grateful for saving my life. After many relapses and attempts at getting clean and sober, I ended up at Pax House with little hope. But, with the help of the amazing staff, and services they have to offer, I found hope and a new purpose in life. I had been to many treatment centers before, but this place had that special something, which did it for me. The house is beautiful and comfortable, the staff is amazing, the food is good, and all the groups and services they have to offer were great. I really liked that they take you out to meetings every night, and to the gym every day as well. Lots to do, including beach days, bowling, hiking on the weekends, and going to the movies. Recovery has to be fun too! Love this place!

Although, I received sobriety, for the time I was there at pax house. I would like to say there is no medical professional on staff. I saw psychiatrist once. Staff is treating patients with a call into a doctor on call., Pax is a warm, comforting environment. However, there should be someone else, other than previous addicts to attend to patients withdrawing.

Very good staff, one gentleman who does yoga, breathing and has a really unique and beneficial approach to treatment. The beds in the main house are super comfortable. The food is plentiful, good and nutritious. The lower men's house needs updating including new beds and carpet. They really pretty heavily on the 12 step faith based model and don't offer much treatment outside of that approach. The program director is a super kind soul and I did get the feeling that they genuinely care. They seem to have a good community going on of employees and alumni.
