About Asian Counseling Treatment Services

We would like to welcome all of you to Asian Chemical Dependency Treatment Services, otherwise known as “ACTS.” We have been serving both the Tacoma and Lynnwood communities since we first opened our doors as a non-profit agency in February of 2003.

We view our mission as our highest priority: to bring healing, hope, and recovery to the entire community, by first focusing on those recently immigrated and delivering quality treatment for all suffering with gambling and substance use disorders as well as families torn apart by domestic violence and mental illness.

Many times, those suffering with one issue actually have multiple issues (co-occurring), and feel like they have nowhere to turn. ACTS views our particular place in the treatment community as reaching out to those who feel they have nowhere to turn, and by delivering quality, respectful treatment by clinicians whom have a shared passion to serve, those wishing to heal can, and those wishing to recover will.

Our treatment agency has been certified to treat Substance Use Disorders and we take pride in our Domestic Violence Victim’s Safety Program. Currently we provide treatment programs for those for whom English is a second language, including Korean, Samoan, and Vietnamese, as well. ACTS serves about 700 to 800 clients per year and we would be excited about adding you!

Our Vision

check_circle Be a difference maker in changing attitudes, beliefs, and values about the need for behavioral health treatment in all cultures and with all peoples.

check_circle We want to dramatically increase the availability of treatment for all cultures, and be a prime catalyst of recovery and healing for every individual, no matter where they were born or raised.

check_circle We would like our agency to be able to effectively bridge cultural divides and gaps in our community’s understanding of all cultures, and be conveyers of health and harmony along with filling-in gaps of misunderstandings of each other as people, diverse communities and a part of “one nation.”

check_circle We highly value healthy families and safe communities, and believe that it is a sacred promise to the next generation, that we actively seek to do everything we can to make it abuse and trauma-free for everyone.

check_circle We believe our communities need to decrease the crime and violence on our streets; however, we think respectful, therapeutic encounters with both victim and perpetrator is the most effective way to increase community safety.


Our Mission

The mission of ACTS is to reach out, engage, and provide consumer-centric care for those in the community suffering with substance use disorders, mental health issues, gambling addictions, and domestic violence behavior. We especially value those whose life includes more than one occurrence of behavioral disorders; they need the help the most, and they are the least likely to receive care.

ACTS offers the co-occurring disordered a comprehensive course of services for those dealing with substance abuse and mental health issues in both Asian and English languages. We provide different levels of care geared towards the meeting of the needs of each individual patient, with compassion, and respect. We look forward to providing you with professional therapeutic interactions, emphasizing emotional support and positive regard for all, thereby increasing well being and a certain increase in the well-being and quality of life for consumers and their family.
