Meet the Faces Behind the Treatment at Lucida

Deciding to get help for yourself, a loved one, or your client is the most challenging, yet rewarding, thing one could ever do. Trusting a provider to take care of your loved one is scary, confusing and challenging. We understand the pain that addiction and mental health disorders can have on the individual themselves, and the community around them.

Our compassionate treatment team at Lucida promises to meet you where you are. We are here to offer hope and our hope is that you reach out to talk through what the treatment experience at Lucida looks like. We are here to help provide a safe, comfortable place to start your healing journey.

Our approach has to be very individualized in order to work with each individual situation. I think our culture really is looking at the person, not labeling ‘substance’ not labeling ‘suicidal,’ it’s just your mental health and what’s going on with you. That way, we can breakthrough on a different level. That’s our culture — who are you? And how can we help.
