PACE’s staff consists of psychologists, therapists, and drug and alcohol counselors who are pioneers in the field of behavioral health. Our team members bring decades of clinical expertise and personal experience in the successful resolution of addiction and co-occurring disorders. We share a common philosophy that effective treatment can be complex. By targeting low self-esteem and self-worth, we help individuals establish long-term sobriety and change.
