Our History

Therapeutic Health Services was founded in 1972 in the heart of Seattle’s African-American community.

Today, we have nine locations offering a full-range of treatment services for families affected by alcohol/substance abuse and mental illness. Our experienced and inspired staff includes licensed counselors, chemical dependency professionals, mental health providers, physicians, nurses, advanced registered nurse practitioners and psychiatrists throughout King and Snohomish Counties. We currently serve clients as young as seven and as old as 80. Forty-nine percent of our clients are between the ages of 41 and 65. 

Therapeutic Health Services is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and licensed by federal, state and county governments. As a fully licensed nonprofit healthcare service provider, we are eligible for coverage by most private and government insurance plans. We are funded by federal, state and local governments as well as United Way of King County.
