We believe family involvement in treatment is extremely beneficial and in some cases crucial to recovery. Our Family Program includes an enlightening, three-day experience offered during each resident's stay. The focus is on education, lectures, films, process groups and group therapy.

Our mission is to provide quality, affordable care for drug and alcohol addiction.

Our Physician, Douglas O. Smith, M.D., has worked with the Walker Center since 1976. He is a certified addictionologist, as well as a specialist in internal medicine. Dr. Smith and the staff at the Walker Center bring years of addictions treatment experience and specialized education and training to the recovery process.

Founded in 1976 by Archie D. Walker. Accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and is licensed by the Idaho State Department of Health & Welfare. To assist residents and their families in recovery, a strong Continuing Care Program (Aftercare) is provided on a weekly basis in Gooding, Twin Falls, Boise, Bellevue, Idaho Falls and Pocatello. In addition, our Alumni Association hosts family-oriented events and activities throughout the year.
