Good businesses should invite scrutiny of their practices from all concerned. At LMRC we have always demanded of ourselves that we abide by the highest standard of care for our patients. Our inpatient programs are annually inspected by the Washington State Department of Health and our outpatient programs are certified by the Division of Alcohol and Substance Abuse in the Washington Department of Social and Health Services. Seeking even higher standards we have been accredited by CARF since 1990. Executives in our management team have served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers since 1990. NAATP is dedicated to maintaining among its members the highest standards for addiction treatment.
If you have any questions about our services or their licensure we invite your inquiries (see contacts).

Letter from Ronald J. Hunsicker, President/CEO of NAATP:
Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers has been a valuable member of the
National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers since 1987. As
the largest addiction treatment provider in the Northwest,
Lakeside-Milam has provided the association with valuable insight into
the state of the art of chemical addiction treatment as well as
providing leadership in the campaign to raise the awareness of state
and national legislatures to the impacts of addiction on our economy.
We have valued Lakeside’s integrity and leadership so much that we
have asked their executives to serve on the board of NAATP. During the
early 1990’s Tom Armstrong, Senior Vice President of Lakeside, served
two terms on our board as did past President Charles Kester.
Lakeside-Milam’s current President, Carlton M. Kester, is serving his
fourth term as a board member.

Association of Addiction Treatment Providers in its efforts to promote
