Providence Saint Peter Chemical Dependency Center


Providence St Peter Lacey WAThe Basics

Providence Saint Peter Chemical Dependency Center provides outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Located about an hour south of Seattle in Lacey, Washington—a suburb of Olympia—Providence Saint Peter offers comprehensive treatment in a comfortable, safe and professional environment. Providence has been a leader in treating chemical dependency and mental health issues since 1978, and prides itself on being the third-largest not-for-profit health organization in the country serving the communities of Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Montana and California.

Treatment and Staff

The first step in treatment is an evaluation ($200) with appointments available Mondays through Fridays between 8 am and 5:30 pm. While individuals with co-occurring disorders are treated, treatment eligibility requires clients have substance abuse as their primary diagnosis. Once assessed, clients are placed in either the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or the traditional outpatient track and given individualized treatment plans.

IOP requires ten hours of group therapy per week over six weeks, and individual sessions scheduled as needed. Group sessions use CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI) and include topics such as coping skills, introduction to the 12-steps, self-esteem, identifying triggers, establishing outside support and goal setting. Clients with co-occurring disorders are assigned to a specialized co-occurring disorder group, as well as a psychiatrist with whom they meet monthly for medication management. Clients in the outpatient track meet twice per week for two hours of group therapy over the course of six weeks and topics are similar to IOP.

Adolescents seeking treatment must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during the assessment. The IOP track for adolescents meets twice per week on Tuesday and Thursday for group sessions from 4 to 6 pm and an individual session and family session are scheduled at the clients’ convenience. As with adult IOP, group sessions use CBT, DBT and MI. Discussion topics include family dynamics, peer pressure, a goals group and (if appropriate) anger management. Typical duration for IOP is six weeks but varies depending upon each client’s needs. Traditional outpatient meets once a week for two hours with individual therapy as needed.

Clients who are seeking treatment somewhere in between inpatient and an IOP may find Providence Saint Peter’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) an ideal fit. This program meets Mondays through Fridays from 9 am to 5 pm.

The Providence Saint Peter treatment team consists of LADCs, CSACs, MFTs and psychiatrists.


Family therapy is also available for interested parties.

In Summary

Providence Saint Peter offers comprehensive treatment for adults and adolescents suffering with substance abuse, addiction and co-occurring disorders. The clinical environment may feel impersonal to some, but the individualized plans, evidence-based therapeutic methods and a wide range of treatment track options make Providence Saint Peter is great choice.
