Medical Detox

The Recovery Village Ridgefield Detox Center is a stand-alone detox facility located in Vancouver, Washington. Just minutes away from The Recovery Village Ridgefield’s main center, this exclusive location provides around-the-clock monitoring to safely rid the body of drugs and alcohol. Medical detox is the first step in a full continuum of care.


The inpatient residential program includes personalized care with low physician-to-patient ratios, group therapy sessions and a score of recreational activities.

Partial Hospitalization

While the partial hospitalization drug treatment program continues to provide intensive daily therapy for patients, clients are given progressively more freedom and flexibility than in residential care.

Intensive Outpatient

The intensive outpatient program allows you to transition after inpatient treatment while still having access to weekly therapy sessions, recreational activities and recovery support. During this level of care, clients live on-site.


Outpatient treatment offers the most autonomy for those who have completed higher levels of care. Clients practice the skills and life lessons they have learned while receiving additional treatment and participating in therapy throughout the week.
