The staff team here is unparalleled and knowledgeable beyond belief. Each person brings their unique and wise skills and gifts to create an atmosphere I felt immediately comfortable and cared for. They are truly compassionate, supportive, and educational. They helped me to heal myself. My life was forever changed here and for that I am eternally grateful!

Alexandra T.

I came into Pacific Sands completely lost and hopeless. As soon as I walked in I felt so welcomed and comfortable. I knew I had made the right decision. It’s immaculately clean and the staff made sure all of my needs were met. Detoxing is generally an uncomfortable experience but being there surrounded by the wonderful staff made it an easier experience than I could have imagined. I’ve been through three other treatments and none of them even compare to Pacific Sands. Highly recommended.

Tanner H.

Pacific Sands was an incredible experience all around. I feel very fortunate to have had help from such a great program. The staff cares about what they do and I could feel that focus as a client. Treatment of this nature is hard to get right and PSRC nailed it on all fronts.

Corey V.

This is the only detox I would feel comfortable sending my loved one. The entire team is immensely dedicated, compassionate, communicative, and supportive. The Mend is a comfortable home-like environment to recover in. The owners and all staff are wonderful people who do inspiring work and make the world a better place every day. I highly recommend.
