Areas of Specialization
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

ABOUT BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN RECOVERY CENTER
Located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Northern Georgia, Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center provides residential treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Program graduates receive continuing care, and medically managed detox is available for those who require it. Duration of treatment varies, but most clients remain on-site for 35 to 45 days.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon each client’s admission, staff conduct a comprehensive evaluation to create an individualized treatment plan. Those who require medical attention for withdrawal symptoms begin their stay in detox. Once stabilized, they transition to the center’s residential program, which is grounded in the 12-Steps.
Clients divide their days between individual therapy, process groups, educational lectures, relapse prevention work, discussions on spirituality, and recreational activities. Residents attend both on- and off-site recovery meetings. All program graduates leave with a continuing care plan, and a relapse recovery program is available for those who need it.
According to the facility’s website, the staff is led by a medical director and includes a psychiatrist, licensed nurses, licensed professional counselors, certified addiction counselors, therapists, and a certified personal trainer.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Situated on 50 acres, Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center has the appearance of an upscale country club. The elegant, hill-top mansion, which serves as both the treatment center and residence, is surrounded by manicured lawns. Clients sleep in shared, well-appointed bedrooms with simple, tasteful furnishings. There are deep leather sofas in the sitting room, a study area, and a wrap-around porch equipped with lounge chairs. In their downtime, clients can shoot hoops on the on-site basketball court, fish in the nearby pond, relax by the outdoor fire pit, or enjoy a game of ping-pong.
