Founder and CEO of Addiction Therapeutic Services and, Josie Ramirez-Herndon has been working in the field of Healthcare, Behavioral Health, and Addiction Services for over 30 years. She was born, educated, and began her professional career at Loma Linda University Medical Center and Behavioral Medicine Center.

Playing an instrumental role to the success of countless addiction professionals and treatment facilities by marketing their services and providing continuing education over the past 17 years, Josie founded and became the CEO of a national marketing and events agency, Villareal & Associates, Inc.

In 2008, Josie expanded Villareal’s function to include an educational component by launching an award-winning CEU website and online journal, RecoveryView.

In 2011, Josie was appointed as CEO of Oregon’s Astoria Pointe. Seeing first-hand that women CEO’s in the behavioral health care field needed a place for support and advisement, she helped found the Women’s CEO Global Alliance.

Harnessing her knowledge and passion for running high-quality treatment centers, Josie launched her own outpatient treatment center in 2013, Addiction Therapeutic Services.

Josie now sits on the Board of Directors of the Addiction Treatment Advocacy Coalition ATAC, expanding her leadership to include industry and political advocacy along with national speaking.

Facility Description:

Addiction Therapeutic Services provides a comprehensive drug and alcohol addiction treatment program for those struggling with alcohol addiction, drug addiction, prescription drug addiction, co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and other mental health conditions.

At ATS, our goal is to help you build a solid foundation for recovery by utilizing an individualized and holistic approach. At ATS we understand that the transition into recovery is not easy and we commend you for making a commitment to changing and saving your life!

Once you have undergone a full assessment and met with our friendly admissions staff, you will embark on a journey of a lifetime. A journey that leads to long-lasting recovery. At ATS, we believe the one size fits all approach simply does not work. From assessment to treatment to discharge we maintain that every individual is unique and has unique needs.

We are very thorough in our assessments, so when you come through the doors as a client, you will find that treatment has been customized for you by our highly experienced clinical staff based on many criteria.

We are also proud to offer compassionate care at ATS, so you will find that treatment is based on respecting you as an individual and utilizing the most suitable modalities for your treatment.

All clients are required to attend groups, whether they are part-time clients (three days-a-week) or full-time clients (fine days-a-week). Whether a part-time or full-time program is right for you will;l be determined by the clinical staff during your assesment. For full-time clients, you may be graduated to part-time treatment once you have shown adequate progress and the clinical staff believes you are ready to step-down.

Our groups include:

  • Process Groups including:
    • Deep Issue
    • Psychodrama
    • And more!
  • Life Skills
  • Anger Management
  • Medical Aspects
  • Gender-Specific
  • Relapse Prevention
  • DBT/Mindfulness
  • Spiritual Care
  • Creative Art

We really like to mix it up and give our clients some variety, so don't be surprised when music and poetry groups appear on our online schedule! We also enjoy collaborating with external group facilitators whose unique knowledge and experience will forward your addiction recovery in deep and unexpected ways!

ATS is a unique treatment program in that we offer individual therapy sessions with our experienced therapists based on Clinical recommendations (on top of all the standard services!). As you can see, when it comes to client care and offering the highest quality treatment, we refuse to hold back.

We strongly advocate for strengthening the family in order to help our clients recover from their addictions. We require all clients and families to participate in our Family Program. This is where we educate and involve families in their loved one's treatment.
