Our dedicated team of clinicians, physicians, therapists, psychiatrists, nurses, and nutritionists work collaboratively to create individualized treatment plans. Every family and student is assigned a primary therapist who guides this process from beginning to end, ensuring a seamless and impactful experience.

Our daughter went to Pacific Quest (PQ) in the spring of 2018. She suffered from depression and anxiety. Regular therapy at home was not enough and we heard about PQ. We were very reluctant to send her away from home. However, the staff made us feel better about the decision. Now, we know it was the best decision we could have made. It changed her life! The healthy living made a huge difference. The on-going therapy with Andrew Vispo (who was absolutely fantastic) helped her immensely and helped us. We will be forever grateful to PQ, Andrew and the rest of the staff.
