Core Philosophy:

Alcohol and drug addictions constitute a primary, chronic disease with genetic, biological, psychological, sociological and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations. The disease is progressive and fatal if untreated. Like any other illness, chemical dependency must be treated by skilled professionals.


Washington State Licensed

Both facilities are licensed by the State of Washington and the Department of Social and Health Services, Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery.  The clinical team are licensed Chemical Dependency Professionals by the State of Washington.  The clinicians are required to continue their education in order to maintain their licensure status with Washington State.


CARF Accredited

In addition to our state credentials, Olalla Recovery Centers has maintained a national accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) since 1998.  CARF has accredited Olalla Recovery Centers for our inpatient and outpatient treatment services.

Ongoing Commitment to Providing Quality Treatment - CARF is an independent, nonprofit organization whose certification is the “hallmark of quality” due to the high quality treatment standards required of certified agencies. CARF accredited programs must have a formal system in place for program improvements and continued enhancements that relies at least in part on gathering input from the patients and referents served. Our program continues to be awarded this certification, demonstrating our on-going commitment to providing the highest quality of treatment to our patients. Both of our sites proudly display the CARF accreditation. Learn more about CARF.
