Welcome to Sea Mar CHC – Tacoma Behavioral Health Center.

Sea Mar’s Tacoma Behavioral Health Center has been serving Pierce County since 1998.

The Tacoma site provides mental-health and chemical-dependency services to children, youth and adults. Our site is state-licensed as a community mental-health agency and a certified chemical-dependency agency. We meet all requirements for court-mandated services, and are fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).

Our providers use multidisciplinary practices to develop and maintain individualized treatment goals for each client. Our well-trained professional team consists of mental health therapists, chemical dependency counselors, psychiatric advanced registered nurse practitioners and psychiatrists. 

Patients are encouraged to have their families and members of their social support system participate in treatment. We specialize in providing culturally competent services and our staff members have received intense training on evidence-based practices to ensure that we provide the best tools to help our patients lead healthy lives.
