Behavioral Healthcare for Young Adults


And we’ll help you get there!

Pacific Pathways is  for young adults with a primary mental health diagnosis and challenges with substance use. Most residential treatment programs focus primarily on substance abuse. Pacific Pathways focuses primarily on recovery from mental and emotional health challenges. That’s why we put a priority on providing a supportive, compassionate, validating and low intensity environment for treatment and lodging. Look through the info on the website and see if Potomac Pathways may be right for you.


Residential Program


PACIFIC PATHWAYS is a residential treatment program for young adults struggling with serious mental health issues and co-occurring substance use. PACIFIC PATHWAYS is accredited with The Joint Commission for residential treatment and behavioral healthcare.

Co-Occurring Treatment


All of our residents take part in our evidence-based clinical treatment program provided by our medical director and clinical treatment staff. Groups are small, and each resident receives highly individualized treatment. The clinical program is licensed by the state of California, accredited by The Joint Commission, and our clinicians are experienced and available to their clients round-the-clock. That's a fact.

Diaectical Behavior Therapy


Ask your therapist or psychiatrist about DBT. It's the gold standard for treatment of complex emotional / mood disorders and harmful behaviors which can include substance use, self-injury, or suicidal thinking. You'll get daily attention and support for learning and practicing new and self-affirming behaviors! All our therapists are "intensively-trained" in DBT at a post-graduate level.
