BlueCrest believes that successful treatment for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders must address the maladies of the mind, body, and spirit. Our truly holistic approach relies on our staff’s extensive knowledge of evidence-based practices to individualize each treatment plan to meet the specific needs of the client. We also believe that any treatment that does not fully integrate 12-step principles is incomplete. BlueCrest provides education on 12-step programs and requires all clients to develop a recovery network by attending and participating in their local groups and meetings.
Our mission is to provide every client with individualized treatment while reinforcing the importance of 12-step recovery and educating them on its principles. Through genuine clinical relationships using the best treatment practices available, our goal is for each client to leave BlueCrest with the foundation needed for long-term, meaningful recovery.

Letter from the CEO
“My life drastically changed as a result of following directions. As a result of being WILLING to have another person guide me towards real recovery, I went from being practically homeless, unemployable, and unwelcome to family and friends to owning several homes, holding prestigious jobs on Wall Street, and mending the broken ties that I had created during the darkest moments of my life.” – Richard Hession
