Chief Operating Officer, Co-Founder

Joe Governara, Co-Founder of BlueCrest Recovery Center

Joseph began his career in the financial services industry working as an institutional bond broker for Wachovia Securities. After a very rewarding finance career, Joseph ventured on his own to form his first successful start up. Many years of feeling unfulfilled ensued and Joseph felt certain that he had a much higher calling in life. Having overcome his own battle with addiction in 2005, he felt compelled to move into the healthcare field where he would have the ability to help others achieve life long sobriety and follow his true calling.

Utilizing his business acumen, organizational skills, dedication and his passion to help others, he formed BlueCrest Recovery Center along with Co-Founder Richard Hession. Joseph considers it an honor and privilege for the opportunity to help assemble and work along side an incredible team that share the same passion and vision.

Joseph graduated from The University of Florida in 2001 and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Advertising. In his down time, Joseph enjoys playing golf, watching Gator football and spending time with his family.

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.

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.
