ValleyEPIC features our newly renovated 78-110 bed residential facilities, which operate in a modified therapeutic community model of treatment. This campus was designed to provide wrap-around services both onsite and in the community by integrating substance abuse treatment approaches with a special focus on trauma informed care.  The ultimate goal of ValleyEPIC is to help people break the chains of addiction, which include a successful re-entry into the community, and reduction in criminal recidivism. This is accomplished by client empowerment through personal accountability, abstinence from substance abuse, and improved positive emotional functioning.
