All efforts are guided by and in adherence to the recommendations distributed by the CDC.

Please note that for the safety of our patients, their families, and our staff, there are certain restrictions in place regarding on-site visitation at Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center.

  • These restrictions have been implemented in compliance with updated corporate and state regulations to further reduce the risks associated with COVID-19.
  • Options for telehealth visitation are continuously evaluated so that our patients can remain connected to their loved ones.
  • Alternate methods of communication for other services may be offered when deemed clinically appropriate.

For specific information regarding these changes and limitations, please contact us directly.

CDC updates are consistently monitored to ensure that all guidance followed is based on the latest information released.

  • All staff receives ongoing infection prevention and control training.
  • Thorough disinfection and hygiene guidance is provided.
  • Patient care supplies such as masks and hand sanitizer are monitored and utilized.
  • Temperature and symptom screening protocols are in place for all patients and staff.
  • Social distancing strategies have been implemented to ensure that patients and staff maintain proper distance from one another at all times.
  • Cleaning service contracts have been reviewed for additional support.
  • Personal protective equipment items are routinely checked to ensure proper and secure storage.
  • CDC informational posters are on display to provide important reminders on proper infection prevention procedures.

The safety of our patients, their families, and our employees is our top priority, and we will remain steadfast in our efforts to reduce any risk associated with COVID-19.

The CDC has provided a list of easy tips that can help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Admissions Criteria

You face many challenges each day, but you don’t have to face them alone. Let Blue Ridge Mountain Recovery Center help you discover your inner strength and overcome your trials with confidence.

Required Criteria

When you call our admissions staff, your call will always be strictly confidential. We have extensive experience conducting evaluations of individuals whose lives have been negatively altered by substance abuse. Our specially trained admissions staff is equipped to speak with the individual interested in treatment or family members who would like to discuss admitting a loved one.

We maintain a specific set of admission criteria to ensure that each person who is treated at Blue Ridge receives the most appropriate and effective treatment available. To be considered for admission to residential treatment at Blue Ridge, an individual should meet the following criteria:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • exhibit symptoms of substance use disorder (alcoholism or drug addiction)

Exclusion Criteria

While the staff at our residential treatment center are well trained to meet the needs of individuals with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder, some factors will exclude a person from admission, including:

  • acute psychotic disorders which prevent the individual from participation in the residential treatment program structure, including group, individual, family and experiential therapies
  • other symptoms or medical complications that may prevent an individual’s full participation in treatment, or require more intensive medical care than we feel we can provide

More About Our Admissions Process

At Blue Ridge, we are committed to ensuring each individual who contacts us receives the most appropriate care for their individual needs. As such, after the evaluation, our admissions staff may recommend detoxification treatment, inpatient treatment, or our outpatient treatment program.

In order to determine whether Blue Ridge is the best fit for your specific difficulties or those of a loved one, please contact our admissions department. We’re here 24 hours a day 7 days a week to speak with you, answer any questions you may have and arrange for a free confidential assessment.

When I left Blue Ridge, I left with a true education on my addiction and how to be successful in recovery. They helped me find out who I wanted to be and gave me the tools to become that person!
