The BlueCrest Approach

The holistic BlueCrest approach treats each client with individualized evidence-based practices as they develop strong 12-step principles. 12-step programs have been helping alcohol and substance abusers to recover and transform their lives for close to 100 years. By utilizing the overwhelming benefits of these programs in conjunction with proven clinical therapies to treat addiction, our clients have unparalleled access to the recovery resources they need to achieve and maintain long-term abstinence.


BlueCrest recognizes that treatment is a necessary component of recovery and incorporates the most current and effective practices into our program. We also recognize that no treatment is complete and sobriety cannot be maintained without full participation in a 12-step recovery program. While utilizing all of BlueCrest’s treatment modalities to heal the Mind, Body and Spirit, clients learn the tenets of 12-step recovery as they begin to attend and participate in their local meetings. Having successfully completed treatment, clients will utilize the 12-step network they have built in treatment to guide them through their journey of sobriety.

Chronic use of alcohol and other drugs alters neurotransmission and essentially “rewires” the brain. Additionally, those suffering from substance use disorders often have experienced trauma, grief, and loss and suffer from co-occurring mental health disorders. To successfully treat the complexity of biological, psychological and social factors that fuel addiction, sound evidence-based practice is indispensable. BlueCrest’s team of licensed, skilled, experienced clinicians are proficient in the most successful therapies for the treatment of substance abuse and mental health disorders.

Anyone who has maintained long-term sobriety from alcohol and drugs is well aware of the spiritual component of addiction. Substance abusers, without exception, have an overwhelming feeling of loneliness and emptiness that they attempt to mask with their use. Lasting and meaningful recovery can only be accomplished with spiritual nourishment and finding a purpose. Almost all medical and psychological treatments for addictive disorders omit the spiritual malady that accompanies chronic substance abuse. By fully acknowledging and making spiritual growth a part of our program, BlueCrest emphasizes and addresses a key component of treatment that is often overlooked.

Abuse of alcohol and drugs can have a devastating impact on the human body. As a result, clients often enter treatment with health problems, in poor physical condition and with an inability to regulate their bodies to cope with anxiety and stress. BlueCrest has an on-site medical staff that assesses every client for medical concerns and ensures they receive proper treatment. We encourage exercise and wellness practices and teach mindfulness techniques to cope with anxiety and stress. We offer an Eastern Meditation curriculum that incorporates meditation and yoga into a client’s regular treatment schedule. BlueCrest knows that a healthy body and a peaceful mind are a foundation for recovery.

Take The First Step Towards A Better Tomorrow

Federal and state law and regulations protect the confidentiality of alcohol and drug dependence patient records maintained by BlueCrest Recovery Center. Generally, the program may not say to a person outside the program that a client attends the practice/program, or disclose any information identifying a client as being alcohol or drug dependent unless:

  • The client consents in writing
  • The disclosure is allowed by a court order
  • The disclosure is made to medical personnel in a medical emergency or to qualified personnel for research, audit, or practice/program evaluation.
  • The disclosure is made to the insurance provider for reimbursement purposes

Violation of the federal law and regulations by a practice/program is a crime. Suspected violations may be reported to appropriate authorities in accordance with federal regulations.

Federal law and regulations do not protect any information about a crime committed by a client either at the practice/program or against any person who works for the practice/program or about any threat to commit such a crime. Federal laws and regulations do not protect any information about suspected child abuse or neglect from being reported under state law to appropriate state or local authorities.

We accept most major insurance carriers and will work with you to help manage your deductibles and copays.  If you do not have insurance, we will work with you to make affordable payments based on a sliding scale according to income.

Research supports the efficacy of group therapy for the treatment of addiction.  To that end, most of our treatment is done in groups (both large 20 people max and smaller 4 people).  In addition, our clinicians will be meeting with every client at least once per month, regardless of the level of care.  Some clients may require more individual therapy.  The treatment team will review this and make the clinically appropriate decision.

YES!  Your clinician will work with you to arrange for either individual family therapy sessions and/or multi-family group therapy.

BlueCrest Recovery Center will conduct an assessment, or level of care evaluation. The goal is to determine the appropriate level of care to meet the client’s individual needs and to provide a recommendation.

Yes, in fact patients with moderate co-occurring illnesses tend to be very successful in our program.  Every client that comes to our facility receives a psychological evaluation to determine any issues. If there are any psychiatric issues determined, we will develop a dual diagnosis treatment plan that will be individualized for each client.

BlueCrest Recovery adheres to the highest treatment standards established by its accrediting agencies. BlueCrest is currently accredited by Joint Commission and   The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities also known as CARF. These governing agencies certify that our services are consistently meeting rigorous treatment standards and to ensure the highest quality of care is always being provided.

A treatment day at BlueCrest consists of three one-hour groups for Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) clients and five one-hour groups for Partial Care Program (PCP) clients. Group schedules for all treatment days are outlined by a clinical curriculum that integrates a multitude of the treatment modalities we offer. Our therapists will conduct weekly individual sessions with each client. These one-on-one sessions most often occurs during treatment hours in lieu of a group session. BlueCrest’s clinical schedule offers comprehensive and diverse therapeutic approaches including, among many others, process (discussion) group, 12-step education/didactic groups, yoga and meditation sessions and life skills training.

BlueCrest is dedicated to healing families as well as the individual client. Our Family Program more casually referred to as “Family Night,” is a weekly meeting held every Wednesday night from 6pm to 9pm. Family night is open to the public, so anyone may attend to experience the positive and energetic atmosphere of our treatment center. Our licensed clinicians facilitate a process or educational group for family members from 6pm to 7:15pm. Family members are encouraged to stay for our 12-step educational group at 7:30pm. Client’s also participate in this 12-step meeting, giving family members with loved ones in treatment the opportunity to spend time with them. And we always provide food! So, please come early to eat and sit with some of our staff. 

The last Wednesday of the month is a special night when we celebrate clean and sober time for current and past clients. The 6pm discussion group on the last Wednesday is attended by both clients and loved ones for a multi-family session. With written consent from the client, BlueCrest Recovery Center will schedule family session during this time or schedule a family session at a different time that is more convenient for you. 

Transitioning from treatment to independent living is a common relapse trigger. BlueCrest’s multiple levels of care are intended to gradually “step-down” clinical structure as clients build independence and grow their 12-step program. Clinicians and our Case Manager will assist in making any necessary aftercare referrals for continued care including but not limited to psychiatrists, doctors and therapists.
