The BLVD philosophy emphasizes mindfulness, meditation, trauma work, giving back, creative self-expression, community, and the importance of laying solid groundwork for a soulful and sustainable recovery. The approach to addiction is tri-fold, offering treatment that focuses on the mind, body, and spirit. Through comprehensive outpatient services for alcohol and drug addiction, BLVD helps clients change their negative self-perceptions and beliefs. Treatment is based on AA’s 12-Steps of recovery and is administered in conjunction with group and individual therapy sessions.

BLVD Treatment Centers in Portland offers two levels of outpatient care: a standard outpatient program (OP) that meets one to two days a week from two to four hours per day, and an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that meets three to five days a week for two to four hours at a time.
The approach is 12-step, non-12-step (Dharma-/mindfulness-based or holistic), and offers LGBTQ treatment tracks, as well as dedicated programming for professionals, those aged 30+, and young adults. The treatment programs are evidence-based, client-centered, and trauma-informed.
Counselors use dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) along with mindfulness-centered meditation groups, life-skills training, and treatment for mental-health disorders. Programming also places a heavy emphasis on holistic options, including yoga, drum circles, music therapy, as well as nutrition and wellness groups. In the IOP, there’s a particularly strong focus on relapse prevention work.
