Northbound’s Seattle rehab center is located right in Lower Queen Anne, one of Seattle’s nicest neighborhoods. It’s close to the Space Needle and right on the Puget Sound, where you can kayak or catch a ferry to dozens of nearby islands.

Northbound’s incredible residential treatment success rates are due, in part, to our InVivo® model, which empowers participants to interact with the outside world while in a safe and supportive clinical setting. Our philosophy, and ultimately our success rates, prioritizes how important community is. This is unlike isolated inpatient treatment scenarios where returning to the ‘real world’ can trigger risky behaviors.

In Seattle, Northbound has created an addiction treatment community as vibrant and active as the city itself. While enrolled in any of our Seattle rehab programs, you can be immersed in Seattle’s outdoorsy culture, and experiencing its exciting city features—artisanal coffee shops, beautiful museums, and great food.

Our Seattle drug rehabilitation center alumni have also formed a strong community, meeting regularly to lend emotional support for relapse prevention, and take part in activities we organize, such as attending a Seattle Seahawks game. We continue to support the recovery community of Seattle by offering addiction support services, family services, and group therapy.
