TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Upon admission, clients participate in an initial assessment to identify individual concerns and help clinicians form an individualized treatment program. According to its website, PWC focuses on creating a recovery process that interrupts the addiction cycle and promotes balanced living. The program is founded on the ideals of empowerment, goal setting, problem solving, and education.

Programming primarily entails of group and individual counseling sessions that address a range of concerns that may contribute to maladaptive behavior. Along with topics common among women struggling with addiction, counseling sessions also address grief, trauma, co-occurring mental health concerns, panic and anxiety, stress reduction techniques, self-esteem building, communication, and relapse prevention.

In addition, the facility incorporates the 12-step model of recovery. During treatment, clients attend on- and off-site 12-step meetings, read fellowship literature, and perform associated “step-work” through counseling sessions and educational workshops.

  • the staff claims that they are #1 the best inpatient treatment in Washington State but with the staff who claims to be a supervisor but is extremely rude. I am 33 years old and It was my first time in treatment I was not on my medications and was having a hard time controlling my anxiety and my head was throbbing I was literally having a panic attack. The staff member felt I was being rude but I continuously said I was not trying to be rude or disrespectful but she continuously argued with me to the point I was given my bags and told to leave. I am very shocked that a staff member who works in a inpatient facility that claims to be #1 and helps people work threw trama and grief can not even act grown enough not to argue with the clients and even after I told her that I appologize and I am having anxiety issues and I am not on my medication she still insisted on standing there telling me I was talking to her rude and disrespectful then telling me to pack my things and leave... I do not recommend this facility to anyone who has anxiety depression or any mental health disabilities...

  • Overall Prosperity is focused on continual improvement of patient care. The services are adjusted and reviewed to ensure the daily care process is client oriented and personalized to the needs of the individual. Each admitting client is assigned to a primary clinician who will act as their guide during their service stay. All staff carry training in dual diagnosis care, with more than fifty percent of staff holding dual licensure-- as well as having an onsite Psychiatric ARNP. The clinical team is fully integrated team who all work to create a client centered experience. Currently Prosperity offers opportunity to develop use of mindfulness strategies, use of holistic grounding. However would like to move towards further inclusion including use of holistic offerings within client free time and leisure activities.

  • Prosperity saved my life. It was my 15th impatient treatment and non like any other. Not only did I get support from all staff but I learned about myaelf. I learned why I do the things I do and learned ways to correct them. This place no only changed my life my outlook on life but it also gave me a family. I will have continual support for the rest of my life. The staff is now my family. They made me do things I didnt want to do but that life. If you want something different for your life u have to do something different and be willing. I am forever grateful for prosperity. Thank u. <3

  • I was amazed to find out that when a family member attended, that she only met with her counselor once and that their idea of nutritious and delicious meals consisted of mixing powdered milk with water for your morning cereal and beans and ketchup mixed is chilli. This is definitely not the place it is made out to be. For being an all female institution yet the patients that have sexual issues meet with the male owner is not acceptable in my opinion.

  • very little, it was disorganized and understaffed only got to see a one on one counselor 4 times in 30 days. little to no recreation. treated like a jail yet I voluntarily went there. I was desperately disappointed I was 50 years old and yet was not allowed to go to the bathroom when I needed to. they depended wholely on lecture and aa and na meetings. There was also some shenanigans between the women that was unacceptable and it seemed like the staff looked the other way.

  • I would have given five stars except for the fact that the staff was beyond rude when returning my phone call about my stuff that I had left there... then proceeded to say I hope you have a wonderful day. Yeah right, like I'm gonna have a wonderful finding that out. It was just completely rude.

  • My sister was the patient, not myself. At the beginning of this survey it asked if I or anyone close to me had been in treatment, she was in treatment right after being arrested. This program did turn her around, temporarily at least, she needs help again I believe. I cannot rate this program past what she told me, or what I witnessed. The staff are kind and want you to succeed. The meals are pretty good my sister said. She obviously received the help she needed and was able to return to her life better off than when she was admitted. Can't bring ipods, laptops etc, they told my sister none could be brought.

  • Informative classes. The counselors were very helpful and understanding to my addiction and wanting to get help. The classes that they offer are excellent in so many ways, they explain in a way that you understand. If you have medication that you have to take, that are very professional at distributing your medication to you. The ladies at Prosperity treat you like a person and not like a bad drug addict.

  • The facility I went to was a all female facility. It made it easy for me to talk about being molested as a child. I felt comfortable and safe to talk about anything. There was also a separate facility for mothers with children. It was the best experience of my life. It helped me overcome my abusive past and gave me the tools to succeed in my future.
