Crest View Recovery Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Rehab Services:

Psychotropic Medication

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient’s mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person’s mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

What does Crest View Recovery offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

CRVC’s Intensive Outpatient Program merges independent living with ongoing therapy. Most individuals spend 4–6 weeks in their program as they learn how to effectively maintain their sobriety. During this time, you’ll see their counselors and licensed therapists three times a week for about three hours per session. Their Intensive Outpatient Program ensures that you don’t skip a beat along your recovery journey.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

After attending clinical treatment during the day and 12-step programs in the evening, clients retire to gender-specific housing facilities. That rehab treatment setting replicates a real-life living situation with roommates also struggling with addiction. While living in these spacious accommodations, their staff will be there to not only monitor progress but also to teach clients independent life and coping skills that they’ll retain post treatment.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Family support can be vital to the addiction recovery process. However, because addiction has the power to tear families apart, it’s important to re-establish broken relationships. Family therapy at Crest View Recovery Center aims to help everyone involved heal.

Aftercare Support

Once you’ve finished IOP, they offer access to their Alumni program to help you stay in touch with both CVRC and peers in recovery. At CVRC, they believe that recovery is an ongoing process. This statement is true whether you have 10 days or 10 years of sobriety. After completing addiction treatment, their Alumni program is an excellent way to not only foster your own sobriety, but to keep peers and others in early recovery engaged as well.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Individual Therapy

At Crest View Recovery Center, individual therapy plays a major role in helping clients achieve sobriety. It allows them to discuss their substance abuse issues in a non-judgmental, one-on-one setting with a qualified, compassionate therapist. Their goal is to help you understand your addiction and work toward changing addictive behaviors and thought patterns.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

While one-on-one therapy is necessary to recovery, group therapy can be just as integral. A therapist leads a group of individuals to help them discuss any issues they may be facing in recovery. Groups might be very specific, targeting one particular problem. They can also be broader, consisting of individuals struggling through many types of addiction. What often helps the most is being able to listen to others with similar problems. Rarely will group therapy require everyone to speak. In most cases, just those people who are comfortable sharing their stories do so. However, the ability to listen to these stories and find out more about what other people are going through is often just what people beginning recovery need to feel less alone.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Crest View Recovery Highlights:

Located in the beautiful Western North Carolina mountains, their facility provides a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere, allowing individuals to focus on the treatment process.
Their experienced, compassionate staff will guide you through each step of the recovery process, which may include detox at their partner facility. They’ve designed each of our life-changing substance abuse programs to provide the most effective, individualized care possible.
Substance abuse programs that ignore gender-responsive treatment may not end up being effective. Men and women often have different needs as they seek recovery. That’s why gender specific group therapy is an important part of Crest View Recovery Center’s treatment approach.
