Upon admission, each resident receives a complete assessment from our caring staff.

Once you have completed the program and are ready to continue your recovery outside of Blue Ridge, we will make sure that all the appropriate tools have been put in place.
Typical Day at Blue Ridge
The drug and alcohol treatment program is centered around the 12-step model of recovery and uses a holistic approach to make sure the whole person is treated instead of focusing on just his or her symptoms. Each day starts with early morning meditation, followed by a variety of different groups that focus on issues such as relapse prevention and recovery skills. In the residential treatment program, relapse prevention groups are held every day in the morning for an hour and are followed by another hour long group. After lunch, clients attend small groups and will then engage in one of our experiential programs. At the end of the day, after dinner, 12-step groups are held for two hours before ending the daily schedule with study hall. Clients will have free time every evening until room curfew at 11pm.
