When you come to Sanctuary at Lake Chelan, treatment revolves around you, the patient. It’s our vision to help restore balance to your life so you develop a positive, healthy sense of purpose. It is also our sincere hope that you will regain a sense of integrity and use your full potential to explore all of life’s possibilities.

Our highly-structured program creates a positive environment of change. It is designed to meet individual needs, create balance and emphasize personal responsibility, as well as restore emotional health. Addiction affects body, mind and spirit. Therefore, it is our philosophy to treat the whole patient using a multi-dimensional approach. At Sanctuary at Lake Chelan, you will learn new living skills to ensure a lasting recovery.

Designed for you…
Addiction does not recognize gender, race, age, religion or social status. There is no typical alcoholic or drug addict. Because we recognize the unique situation of each of our patients, we custom design each patient’s treatment plan, including type of counseling during the variable length of stay. Within our therapeutic community, you will become an active participant in your own evolution, all the while receiving compassion, understanding and respect.

Co-occurring disorders
At Sanctuary at Lake Chelan, our specially trained staff focus on underlying issues and conditions that worsen and perpetuate addictive behaviors. We offer one-to-one counseling and full support throughout your stay. All treatment is overseen and monitored by our physicians.
