Holistic Approach

Even from the beginning, the mission of Discover Recovery was to provide people with substance dependence a place where they can develop the skills to build a fulfilling life.

We believe substance dependence isn’t a one-dimensional concern but rather a chronic, progressive, and often fatal disease that affects one’s mind, body, and spirit. Drugs and alcohol affect an entire person and their entire life.  That’s why we offer a holistic approach that combines medicine, psychology, and emotional balance.

Treatment Environment

Our treatment facility is a 40-bed co-ed residential facility located in a coastal village in Long Beach, Washington. We offer 30-90 day programs for clients who want to get away from the clutches of addiction.

In Long Beach, we’re located just a half mile from the ocean coast. We’re surrounded by miles and miles of open beaches, lush state parks, quaint shops, fantastic cuisine, and lodging.

Our area in Washington State features wonderful wild life.

Our Symbol

Discover Recovery is located in Long Beach, Washington.  Long Beach features the oldest working lighthouse in the US.  It notes the point where the Columbia River empties into the Pacific Ocean.

Before this lighthouse was built, ships traveling up the Columbia River to Portland, OR would often collide with sandbars and rocks in the shallows.  They would also frequently miss the entrance to the Columbia River altogether.  In fact, the area was named “Cape Disappointment.”  

But the development of the 53 foot tall lighthouse in 1856 changed navigation in the area.  It was the job of the lighthouse keeper to keep the candles burning all night in case any ships were nearby.  Through rain and storm the light needed constant tending to save the lives of sailors who wisely used its guidance.

Like the lighthouse keeper, we stand ready to save the lives of those who want it.  The landscape can be daunting, and there is a chance of disappointment, but we offer the guidance that can help you find your way to your destination.

Discovery Recovery has staff manning the phones 24/7 waiting to answer your call.

Once you're approved, we can admit you to our facility at any time of day or night.

We even have our own transport on standby for those that may need transportation.

We also provide escort service coupled with our airport or any origin pickup.
