Areas of Specialization

  • 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.

  • Aftercare Support
    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.

Crestview treats a young demographic. They seem to be satisfied with their accommodations and meal plans, and wish they had more outdoor activities. A diverse offering of groups and therapies. Little control over living environments.

Highly educated and experienced clinical staff and a dedicated director's board. Staff are easily contacted by concerned family and return phone calls promptly. Case management is in touch with families on a weekly basis. a very healing and informative family weekend. Clients get a chance to experience triggers from the outside world while still experiencing treatment. Clients encouraged to get jobs and be financially responsible before discharge, not continue to be dependent on parents or loved ones, clients are hooked up with community resources, staff is highly skilled and educated, they give a lot of scholarships, the directors are readily available and answer the phone 24/7, really good team work among staff members, staff members are in recovery themselves and really enjoy their jobs, - New program - Space constraints of facility, small rooms, not enough offices, parking - Lack of training and short sobriety requirement for technicians, they tend to get into power struggles - not very good therapist retention - no women on their director's or management team .

I have been to treatment before, but not this facility. Crestview provides excellent care to their patients. Highly educated and experienced staff. The strengths come from the experience and knowledge of the staff. Many of them are in recovery and that makes all the difference when it comes to getting through to a patient.

Crestview shows a dedication to clinical care. The clinical staff at Crestview has either a masters, certificate in addiction counseling, licensure or all three. There is a large diversity in terms of types of groups and counseling offered. Additionally the sober living homes are maintained to a high standard (clean, upscale, nice/safe neighborhoods). Lastly there is a overall impression that the staff at Crestview has a strong passion for addiction treatment and constantly puts clients first. Diverse programing, fully qualified staff, comfortable and well maintained sober living homes, passionate staff. Crestview should offer more outdoor activities i.e hikes, nature exposure etc.

The experience the client receives is absolutely amazing. Not only do they have the resources to utilize with the support and accountability of the staff and peers around them, they also gain a sense of self worth and responsibility. This is all happening while they are reconstructing their life, doing the work and creating healthy daily habits along the way. The facility offers a wide variety of different treatment modalities and options; CBT, DBT, group and individual therapies and family workshops as well. There is also yoga, gym and other activities as well.
