How You Would Like To Be Treated

At MiraVista we believe every individual deserves to be treated with respect, compassion, and the highest-quality care. You will feel heard and understood in a welcoming and comfortable environment.

“I got married, fathered three children whom I see regularly, and learned and accepted that my addiction, the most severe form of substance use, may have started as a form of self-medication in response to mental health issues and exposure to trauma.”
James, Former MiraVista Patient

What Staff And Clients Say

My niece was cared for at Miravista. She says that the staff were outstanding and listened to her. In particular, one of her counselors was a life force in creating engagement opportunities for her and all patients. She will return to MiraVista if she ever needs help again.

Family Member, Adult Psychiatry

I have been to many therapists and attended many groups but the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) program is by far the most helpful and relatable. The entire team makes you feel SO SAFE that it is hard not to engage and open up about very difficult problems and hurdles you have to get through. The team provides clear direction to help me develop my path to improvement.

Patient, Outpatient Recovery Services

Thank you for saving my life. This program has helped me more than any other program. Counselors are extremely helpful and caring.

Patient, Opioid Treatment Program

Orientation, on-the-job training and education is the best I have experienced in my career.  From the moment I started, I felt supported and part of the team.

Melody, MiraVista Nurse

I may first see our patients at their worst when they come through our doors, but then I see change and hope. It is about what that patient feels, what they are going through, what I can do to help with their recovery.
