Clients in our outpatient program meet one to two times per week in the day or evening. Outpatient treatment provides ongoing clinical support as clients adjust to independent living. To be considered for OP, clients must demonstrate that they have established a strong 12-step network, have support from family and/or friends, attend meetings regularly and are engaged in step-work with a sponsor. Some clients in our OP program may have completed multiple levels of treatment at other facilities and attend outpatient at BlueCrest Recovery Center as an added support.
The limited number of treatment hours in an outpatient program is less restrictive but continues to provide structure as clients step-down from IOP or transition home from a sober living environment. Clients in our outpatient program continue to have regular contact with a counselor, are provided with monthly individual therapy and have access to our psychiatrist and psychiatric APN for assessment and/or medication management.
BlueCrest carefully assesses each client on an individual basis when they are admitted to treatment, transitioning or discharging from outpatient. At this point in their treatment, clients are expected to have put extensive work into their recovery. This includes but is not limited to their 12-step program, stabilization of medical and mental health problems, their ability to cope with stress and relapse triggers and their motivation to continue making positive changes.
Outpatient is the last level of care prior to the completion of all treatment services. Clients who transition to OP and complete our program undergo a rebuilding and transformation of their Mind, Body, and Spirit throughout the course of their treatment. Clients completing OP at BlueCrest, almost without exception, are drastically different in physical appearance, demeanor, health, attitude and outlook since the day they first entered treatment.
