At La Ventana Treatment Programs, we understand that we are only as good as our team and that there is no substitute for experience. In turn, we have worked hard to acquire the most talented, seasoned and passionate treatment professionals in the field. The multi-disciplinary treatment team which consists of some of the most dedicated, compassionate and highly trained treatment professionals, perfectly poised to treat those struggling with mental health, chemical dependency and co-occurring issues. The client-to-staff ratio is low so as to be able to offer depth of personal connection, individualized support, and accountability at every step. The staff are a close knit team in constant communication, hyper-vigilant about each client’s unique needs upon admission, throughout their stay, and after they launch back into life. The staff understand the clinical interventions and overall care required for a successful treatment experience as well as the aftercare planning necessary to be able to sustain long-term recovery. Once a client admits, they genuinely become part of the La Ventana family and staff will do everything in their power to help their family member succeed.
