A little bit about us...
Our services include mental health programs for adults, children & families, case management, chemical and problem gambling treatments, peer services, domestic violence perpetrator treatment, co-occurring disorders, medically assisted treatment, psychiatric prescribing, trauma sensitive primary care, and 24/7 mobile crisis services.
We have grown, to three locations, and feel that this is the sweet spot for us. We do not wish to grow larger because we feel there is a tipping point of being too big, and when you are too big, you lose the feeling of connection and quality of work life. We would like to preserve our unique culture and focus on fostering a culture of inclusion, kindness, and family.
The Washington State Department of Health has also submitted our organization to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as an exemplary practice under the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi).
We are considered a “frontier” organization, meaning that we are a bit more rural than rural. This means many wonderful things for our employees. Working for us will allow you to live in an environment of beauty and peace. You will no longer have to leave home an hour early just to drive one mile to work. You will be surrounded by beautiful forests, hugged up against the Pacific Ocean, and have a wide array of outdoor activities available for the adventurous spirit in you.
Our Long Beach location is located on a small peninsula on the bottom southwest side of Washington nestled between the Pacific Ocean and Willapa Bay, it is also just a 30-minute drive to Astoria, OR and 2 hours from Portland, OR.
Our Raymond location is surrounded by beautiful forests, near natural wildlife reserves, and has the Willapa River running along its banks. It is 1 ½ hour from Olympia, WA.
Our Montesano location is a short drive from Olympia, WA and also has the lovely Chehalis River running through its borders.
In these places you will find a peace that surrounds you and a simplification of daily living where you no longer spend more time in your car and office than you do at home with your family. Life slows down and you are able to breathe again.
If you are looking to serve humanity and make a difference, we are the place you want to be. Rural health allows for the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, learn new skills and resources, live at a slower pace, and be present for your life. It’s a beautiful calling, and we welcome you to join us in it.
