About Us

Recovering Lives | Restoring Health | Rebuilding Futures

Therapeutic Health Services (THS) operates on the belief that chemical dependency and mental illness are chronic, progressive diseases that respond to appropriate intervention, treatment and prevention. By effectively employing all three, individuals and families are better able to lead healthy and productive lives in their communities.

At Therapeutic Health Services (THS), we believe in treatment that deals with the whole person and every aspect of his or her life. Our approach includes mental health and family services, plus a wide range of chemical dependency treatments such as methadone and counseling. Years of working with the diverse community of Puget Sound has taught our staff the value of providing services that are culturally relevant and in line with each individual’s needs.


fostering healing and recovery

Our clients in recovery and those managing their mental illness need more than counseling and medication treatments to function at their greatest capacity. That’s why we offer a complete range of supplemental services, including language and cultural expertise, family and community support, and vocational services.


improved quality of life for all

Each year, more people die or become disabled from substance abuse and severe mental illness than from any other preventable cause.

In fact, one in four deaths in our country is the result of alcohol, drug or tobacco abuse. You can imagine the enormous burden this places on everything from family life and public safety to health care. By helping our neighbors overcome alcohol and drug addiction, we help strengthen our entire community.
