As a client, you are our personal jigsaw puzzle. You walk into our facility and pieces of you are scattered onto our conference room table. As a team we have to surround you, flip over your pieces, line up your straight edges, find the things hidden in your dark corners, and clasp together the essence of who you are, and can be, without alcohol and drugs.

There are these moments while treating someone with addiction where, as Executives, Psychiatrists, APNs, Clinicians, and Techs, we turn to one

another and give each other “the look”. It’s usually right after someone is crying and tells us how they “don’t want to be here”, that they’ll “never get it”, that they’re “hopeless” and there’s “no point.” It happens more frequently than you’d realize.

The look is a long pause—a quiet and gentle acknowledgment to each other professionally that this one… this one, is going to be difficult.

Rebuilding hope and desire in someone that’s lost it for such a long period of time is no easy feat. It takes a village. At BlueCrest, we not only take over the responsibility of treating a client mind and body— we take responsibility for treating their soul as well. After all, what advantage would psychological measures have, if the person didn’t even feel worthy enough to actually be sober.

Christina was one of those clients. The type of client that came because they were dope-sick. The type of client that was going to stay and complete the program because, “I mean, whatever—I’ll do it. I’m not happy about being here but I’m here so…” I remember the conversation vividly. I remember that first night, sitting next to her on the couch, trying to convince her that she was worthy and not being sure if she’d actually make it. Our first “resistant client”.

A few months later, It took a crowbar to get her off of that same couch and onto the next level of care. It happens all the time now. They never want to leave. We pride ourselves on our ability to inspire clients like Christina. On our ability to make the impossible, possible. Our ability to take these resistant, hopeless clients, and transform them into sober proactive members of their own lives.

The ingredients are simple. When you combine passion, faith, love, and determination… nothing is impossible.
