Blueprints for Recovery

Blueprints for Recovery Prescott Arizona

At Blueprints for Recovery, we realize that young adult addicts suffer from a complex of issues that all need to be treated. There is depression, dysthymia, lack of motivation, lack of spiritual connection, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, trauma and affect dysregulation, inability to feel a part of or to be an integral member of a group, a deficiency in life skills and communication skills, as well as the near constant belief that drugs or alcohol can satisfy these disparities. We treat all of these over an extended period of time, giving the addict the best possible chance at a lifetime of recovery.

ABOUT BLUEPRINTS FOR RECOVERY

Located in Prescott, Ariz., Blueprints for Recovery is a gender-specific treatment center for men between 18 and 30 who are struggling with substance abuse. It is one of the 73 (20 percent) of Arizona facilities that offers long term, residential treatment services. With a foundation in 12-step immersion, the treatment program also incorporates evidence-based and experiential therapy methods.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to Blueprints for Recovery’s website, clients stay in treatment for six to nine months, and it follows a three-phase program that guides residents from drug use to sobriety in a gradual process.

Blueprints for Recovery begins its process of treatment with a comprehensive needs assessment. Program applicants are screened for psychiatric and addiction treatment needs to develop a personalized treatment plan. When clients are moved into the residential phase of treatment they are monitored by medical personnel.

Programming includes 12-Steps treatment, which the facility’s website calls the “backbone” of treatment. Individual and group counseling plays a large role in the program’s curriculum as well.

In addition, treatment utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to set short and long-term goals, modify behavior, and change destructive thinking patterns. Clients also participate in outdoor therapies such as daily group hikes.

Other activities include experiential and holistic therapies including expressive arts therapy, guided meditation sessions, and outdoor activities.

Blueprints for Recovery holds regular family workshops, which include educational classes and family counseling sessions. Blueprints for Recovery strongly encourages their residential alumni to continue treatment in the program’s transitional homes. Residents of the homes continue to attend 12-step meetings, participate in group and individual counseling, and submit to drug testing.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

  • They only care about your money. They shun their good therapists which provide information and strategies that few can offer and instead use primarily a step based program, which makes no sense because the steps are FREE. Do not send a loved one here.

  • Well trained staff, the staff is very personable and connects with each client. Shows you other outlets in life other then addiction. Such as traveling for backpacking trips, snowboarding, fishing etc. As a client of this facility, I don't believe there were any weaknesses at this facility. I had alot of fun at this facility, I'm forever grateful for the people that opened this place and are continuing to help people every day. I couldn't recommend a better facility.

  • Caring staff, awesome outdoor adventures, great food and a program that has kept me happy and sober.I have nothing but positive memories and gratitude for Blueprints. They changed my life! I had run out of hope. I had finally hit rock bottom in my addiction and was literally dying. I finally was willing to get some help. As soon as I arrived at Blueprints, I felt an overwhelming feeling of relief. I knew I was in a safe and understanding place. The staff loved me until I learned to love myself. Their program taught me how to be a man in sobriety and how to live a life of integrity. I thank God for Blueprints and what they have done for me. I highly recommend Blueprints for Recovery to any one who wants to learn how to get sober and stay sober. I made a decision to get help and three years later, I am still sober. My favorite memories of Blueprints are the awesome outdoor actives. We went camping, fishing, snowboarding and we had a blast. The food is also great...we ate better than I ever had! I love my new life and Blueprints for Recovery definitely showed my how to live it!

  • Strengths: Location (Prescott) - recovery town...lots of rehab programs and meetings available - lodging is not luxurious but certainly nice for the residents - staff is very hands-on with residents and seem to bond with the residents - i.e. the residents like the staff and it seems that all get along. My son has had some setbacks, but he has just graduated, still wants to stay around, knows that this facility has been a positive thing in his life and has instilled a sense of accomplishment in him, and has met some good, good friends - he has changed for the good. Blueprints has served as a very strong influence on my son in helping him to reach sobriety from a very, very intense drug addiction. He still has a lot of discipline to learn in future days, but he has the best attitude now than ever before. He has found a place that he knows is safe and good for him and he plans to stay around it. I truly believe that he has learned from Blueprints that it is a better life to be sober and happy.

  • No nonsense approach to addiction. All male clientele. FABULOUS therapists. Environment does not foster a sense of entitlement. Working with the family is a key component of the program. Psychiatrists, not nurse praticioners, provide monitoring and maintenance of meds. Everyone, from the director on down, is very approachable. Program works with clientele to establish independence. They worked with us regarding our concerns. The living quarters are not great, but, we also did not want a country club-type environment for our son. We are more than pleased with our decision to place our son at Blueprints.

  • My son attended Blueprints beginning Dec. 2012. He recently celebrated his 2 year sober anniversary. My husband and I participated in the parent workshop and have visited Blueprints several times. My son attended one other program and was not successful. Blueprints was the answer....The staff at blueprints provided him with the small, close-knit, family, home environment that he needed to face his issues. he love and care provided were beyond exceptional. Excellent support staff is available including counseling services, nutrition, adventure, group, individual, and so much more. After finishing the recovery program, my son continued his recovery with the Blueprints Transition Program which assisted him with his recovery while working and transitioning back to living his life as a sober individual. The support provided by the other clients is continuous . My son is now surrounded by his sober family. What I know for sure is that my son would not be alive today without Blueprints. I will forever be grateful to Blueprints....they brought my boy back to me. This program is the BEST of the BEST!
    This place saved my life. The staff uses their extended knowledge of the recovery field to bring a unique and laid back atmosphere that actually works!!! Im forever grateful that they took me in and helped me get and stay sober.
    blueprints seems to be the only place in prescott that doesn't have a cookie-cutter treatment model. The clients are getting individualized care and the backpacking trips were out of this world - this place was amazing

  • Before sending a loved one to this facility, you should research Gatehouse Academy (where the current CEO used to work)...The fact that any former Gatehouse employee is still treating addicts is a shame and gross oversight of our government.

  • I went through Blueprints main program last year. I had a lot of fun not only going out on the backpacking trips but I also had learned a lot about myself and sobriety. I still keep in touch with my therapist and my old roommates.
