Areas of Specialization
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.
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.

ABOUT CREST VIEW RECOVERY CENTER
