The partnership became effective September 12, 2016.

The treatment facility uses a best practices abstinence-based approach that is rooted in 12-Step recovery programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous. The goal is to treat patients with the highest addiction acuity, often complicated by co-occurring mental conditions, to live a life that is happy, joyous and free from addiction.

The facility also provides services for students enrolled in individualized educational programs (IEP). Additionally, family therapy is a key part of the Valley Vista adolescent treatment protocol, an integral part of an individual's enduring recovery.

"As the opioid epic escalates, we're seeing the age of addiction getting younger and younger. We are honored to be able to provides services to an adolescent population where none exists," said Rick Distefano, Chief Operating Officer at Valley Vista.
