Are you spellbound by majestic, snowcapped mountains? Do you enjoy the lush greenery of an untamed forest?Is the smell of cool, wet air energizing? Do you appreciate being in very close proximity to a vastnumber of sites, both natural and manmade?
If you answered yes to even just one of those questions, then you might be looking for a Washington drug rehab.
Also known as the Evergreen State, Washington is undeniably beautiful, from the Seattle skyline to the countless national parks and wildlife refuges. However, most would agree that the natural landscapes and scenery — Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier, Palouse Falls, Hoh Rain Forest, Mount Saint Helens — are why Washington is a destination not to be missed.
In all the ways that count, Washington might just be the best state in the US. (But don’t take our word for it!)
There are a number of unique and even unusual sites to see right here in Long Beach, Washington. In-between treatments and process groups, we encourage Discover Recovery clients to immerse themselves in our local culture, including the World Kite Museum and, if the time is right, the annual Washington State International Kite Festival.
You could also take some time to learn about cranberries at the Cranberry Museum, do some whale watching along the Long Beach Boardwalk, indulge in your morbid curiosities at Marsh’s Free Musem, or uphold the local tradition of taking a selfie in front of one of the world’s largest frying pans.
Picturesque landscapes and scenery are plentiful throughout the state of Washington. But even just looking at Long Beach and the surrounding area, there are so many natural wonders to behold.
While in Long Beach, Discover Recovery clients are in reach of Cape Disappointment National Park, the Northeastern leg of Lewis and Clark’s Discovery Trail, the longest beach in the world (i.e. where Long Beach gets its namesake), Willapa National Wildlife Refuge, and so much more.
Discover Recovery in Long Beach, Washington, isn’t just for nature lovers. In fact, there are plenty of great man-made sites to see in the area, many of which are just a short drive away. And because of our regular field trips, our clients are able to experience many of the best things that Washington State has to offer.
Some of these destinations include the capital city of Olympia, nestled at the foothills of Mount Rainier; artist Dale Chihuly’s Bridge of Glass and the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma; and, of course, Seattle with nearby Snoqualmie Falls.
In 2017, there were 742 deaths from opioid overdoses in the state of Washington alone. While it’s true that Washington State has a below-average overdose death rate, this is still a considerable number. Further, it means that there are still a lot of Washington families being affected by drug and alcohol addiction.
