Blueprints for Recovery Philosophy
At Blueprints for Recovery, we realize that young adult addicts suffer from a complex of issues that all need to be treated. There is depression, dysthymia, lack of motivation, lack of spiritual connection, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, trauma and affect dysregulation, inability to feel a part of or to be an integral member of a group, a deficiency in life skills and communication skills, as well as the near constant belief that drugs or alcohol can satisfy these disparities. We treat all of these over an extended period of time, giving the addict the best possible chance at a lifetime of recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

ABOUT BLUEPRINTS FOR RECOVERY
Settled in the tranquil, small community of Prescott, Ariz., Blueprints for Recovery is a gender-specific, long-term residential treatment program for young men 18 to 25 struggling with chemical dependency. The facility is relatively small with 24 beds to maintain a low resident to staff ratio for more personalized service. With a foundation in 12-step immersion, the treatment program also incorporates evidence-based and experiential therapy methods.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Blueprints for Recovery follows a three-phase program that guides participants from drug use to sobriety in a gradual process. Blueprints for Recovery begins its process of treatment with a comprehensive needs assessment for each applicant. Program applicants are screened for psychiatric and addiction treatment needs to develop a detailed and personalized treatment plan. Then, clients are moved into the residential phase of treatment where they are monitored by medical personnel while receiving treatment for substance abuse. Clients will take part in 12-Steps treatment, which the facility’s website calls the “backbone” of treatment. Individual and group counseling plays a large role in the program’s curriculum as well. In addition, treatment utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to set short and long-term goals, modify behavior, and change destructive thinking patterns.
During the residential phase of treatment, clients also participate in outdoor therapies. Group hikes are a daily part of these therapies as a way to retrain bodies and minds. Other therapy sessions can be held outdoors, and clients are encouraged to participate in outdoor activities.
Other activities include experiential and holistic therapies such as expressive arts therapy, guided meditation sessions, and outdoor activities such as weekly hiking trips and monthly four- to five-day trips.
Blueprints for Recovery holds regular family workshops, which include educational classes and family counseling sessions. The typical length of treatment is nine months, and Blueprints for Recovery strongly encourages their residential alumni to continue treatment in the program's transitional homes. Residents of the homes continue to attend 12-step meetings, participate in group and individual counseling, and submit to drug testing.
Blueprints for Recovery employs a highly-qualified team of psychiatrists, master’s level counselors, outdoor guides, and a treatment support team. According to the facility’s website, all staff members are also in long-term recovery. Due to the center’s small size, clients enjoy a relatively low staff-to-client ratio.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Blueprints for Recovery’s residential treatment center is a 24-bed, home-like facility with a full kitchen, spacious communal areas, patios, and acres of outdoor space for recreational activities. Along with weekly hikes, clients also participate in a monthly Adventure Program, in which they go on four- to five-day excursions throughout the Southwest. Past activities have included surfing, camping, snowboarding, kayaking, fishing, and rock climbing.
