ABOUT FREE BY THE SEA
Located in Ocean Park, Washington, Free by the Sea is a residential treatment program for drug and alcohol addiction. The facility is also approved by the State of Washington to provide treatment for dual diagnosis services. It's one of 139 treatment facilities in Washington (35.1 percent of all facilities in the state) to offer specialized programming for clients with co-occurring disorders. Although medically supervised detox is not available on-site, the facility will recommend a nearby detox facility before undergoing residential treatment as needed.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment starts with a thorough assessment to determine the appropriate level of care. Treatment length varies and can be either 30, 60, or 90 days. Free by the Sea is one of only 33 treatment facilities in Washington (just 8.3 percent of all facilities) to offer long-term residential programs lasting longer than 30 days. Programming is largely gender specific, and men and women participate in eating, classes, and most other treatment activities separately.
Treatment is evidence-based and includes dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which is a treatment modality offered by 54.3 percent of Washington treatment facilities. Clients attend individual and group therapy, life skills education classes, anger management workshops, and 12-step groups.
Upon successful completion of the treatment program, clients receive an individual discharge plan based on the client's unique needs. Clients may live on campus for up to one year after program completion for transitional care.
According to the facility's website, the facility maintains a low client-to-staff ratio. The treatment team includes psychiatrists, licensed social workers, psychiatric nurse practitioners, clinical psychologists, an addictionologist, and other behavioral health staff.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility is located on a five-acre campus on the coast of Washington. Family visitation takes place on Sunday afternoons. Meals are provided by the facility at regularly scheduled times.
