Crest View Recovery Center Philosophy
CVRC is here to guide anyone suffering from addiction into recovery. We strive to improve the physical, spiritual and emotional health of our clients and their family through a system of addiction education, counseling services and wellness services based on a program of patient care and education. CVRC offers multiple levels of addiction treatment programs, each tailored to the clients’ specific issues and needs. All of our programs are designed to help you gain insight into the disease of addiction while acquiring the life skills needed to sustain long-term recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
Those suffering from addictions benefit most from facilities that are committed to developing an individualized treatment plan. Every person, every addiction, is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to healing from substance abuse disorders. The road to recovery is a very personal one. Crest View Recovery Center was designed with a team of professionals that is dedicated to helping you discover and develop a plan that works for you.
Reality Based Programming
During Reality Based Programs, patients participate in intensive therapy during the day, and participate in evening activities designed to support individual treatment goals. Those responsibilities include the day-to-day tasks of a normal living routine; grocery shopping, cooking and maintaining the cleanliness of living quarters, recreational activities; all while monitored by staff. Combined with effective clinical treatment, an emphasis on reality-based tasks aids in successful reentry to daily life upon completion of the drug rehab program.

ABOUT CREST VIEW RECOVERY CENTER
Situated in the tranquility of North Carolina’s Appalachian Mountains, Crest View Recovery Center (CVRC) offers multiple levels of care for individuals struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. A premiere, upscale recovery center, Crest View offers residential and outpatient-based treatment services, and detoxification.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s website, before beginning treatment, clients undergo an initial substance abuse history to determine an appropriate level of care. In addition, CVRC utilizes cutting-edge neurofeedback techniques to give clinicians a deeper understanding of the client’s neurocognitive status. Throughout treatment, clients continue to participate in neurofeedback sessions, allowing clinicians to track treatment progress and guide rehabilitation.
Individuals who require a more intensive level of treatment may be referred to CVRC’s residential treatment program. With an average length of stay of 35 to 45 days, the residential program consists of eight clinical hours of daily programming. During the day, clients attend individual and group counseling sessions, as well as educational seminars. At night, clients participate in evening activities that support individual goals.
Along with counseling and educational sessions, clients also attend 12-step support meetings, participate in recreational and holistic therapy such as guided meditation and yoga, and undergo nutritional counseling. CVRC strongly encourages residential clients to utilize its outpatient program as a “step-down” relapse prevention service, which provides the recommended 90 days of ongoing treatment, a proven-effective timetable for treating addiction.
Crest View Recovery Center’s website indicates it is licensed by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. CVRC employs an interdisciplinary team of psychiatrists, master’s level substance abuse counselors, wellness coordinators and yoga instructors, along with a support team of facility technicians.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to the center’s website, the Crest View Recovery Center is surrounded by the lush Appalachian Mountains, and offers a therapeutic, supportive environment and tranquil outdoor areas to promote reflection and relaxation. The 14-bed facility features double occupancy bedrooms, a yoga studio, comfortable group counseling rooms, and private clinical offices for individual therapy. The residential program uses a reality-based treatment model, suggesting clients may be responsible for light chores.
