  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Located about 20 minutes north of Vancouver, Washington, The Recovery Village at Ridgefield (TRV) provides residential and outpatient treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder. Medical detox is available at the Recovery Village Ridgefield Detox Center, which is about 17 miles away.


All clients are assessed upon admission and receive an individualized treatment plan. Treatment is evidence-based and designed to address the needs of clients with co-occurring disorders, which is a specialty offered by 38.9 percent of treatment facilities in Washington.

Length of stay in the residential program varies depending on need. Treatment includes individual and group therapy, as well as holistic activities such as yoga, meditation, exercise, and music therapy.

Outpatient options include a partial hospitalization program (PHP), which is a treatment level offered by just 3.8 percent of facilities in Washington, and an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which is a treatment level available in 38.5 percent of all treatment facilities in the state.


The treatment team consists of doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, counselors, and therapists. The facility also maintains that it keeps a low client-to-staff ratio.


The 64-bed residential facility has two gyms, scenic indoor and outdoor communal spaces, and a private chef.


J.S., the one former client polled by Rehabs.com to date, gave TRV a negative review. In addition to noting that the treatment was ineffective, they described their stay as "uncomfortable" and the staff as "miserable."

The rehab fared much better on Google[1], where it earned an average rating of 4.1 out of five stars based on 58 reviews. The majority of alumni who left feedback praised the program and its staff for being helpful and compassionate. "I would just like to say that the staff has given me the tools that I need to continue to be sober. The love and personal hands on care that they have given me is amazing," Jerry wrote in a representative review.


Mandy, the sole loved one surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing, gave TRV negative feedback, complaining that her son's co-occurring disorder was not adequately treated. She also noted she would not recommend the facility to others and wrote: "The people at this facility are over worked and there is not enough professional help to deal with all of the emotional and psychological care needed."


Lia, the one staff member polled by Rehabs.com, indicated that she believed the treatment to be highly effective and wrote: "Incredibly grateful to be a part of something so wonderful."


Treatment costs $25,000 per month. TRV accepts most major insurance plans such as Aetna, Humana, UnitedHealth Group, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna. The facility's website also mentions a few different scholarships available for clients who pay out of pocket.
