At this time, Pacific Center will remain closed through 01/04/2021. This is in a continued effort to reduce the risk of exposure and keep our community safe.

While our building remains closed and all in person on-site and off-site meetings have been canceled, Pacific Center has transitioned most of our services to an online format. We are now providing video/teleconferencing for therapy sessions, peer group meetings and therapy groups.
