Our Mission
At La Ventana Treatment Center, our innovative approach to addiction treatment is designed to address the underlying causes that may contribute to challenges faced by those struggling with eating disorders, substance abuse, alcoholism and concurring mental health issues.
We provide state-of-the-art, individually tailored, and holistic treatment for those struggling with the full spectrum of chemical dependency, eating disorders, and co-occurring mental health issues. Our comprehensive and innovative treatment philosophy is based upon our understanding of the complex and progressive nature of chemical dependency and eating disorders. Instead of focusing on the symptoms, we treat the person and the underlying issues that have led to the harmful behaviors.
Our individualized approach honors all aspects of our clients’ lives, stories, and experiences in a safe and supportive environment conducive to recovery and a deep level of personal growth. We do not place our focus on symptoms; rather, we provide treatment, support, and guidance to the individual client and their family. We care. We get it.

Who we Serve
We treat various substance use and dependence issues, ranging from opiates, marijuana, alcohol, heroin, cocaine, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, prescription medication and more.

What Services we Offer
