TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
In the majority of cases, treatment can begin within 24 hours of the client making contact. 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 per day..
Depending on client preference, the treatment approach can be 12-Step or non-12-step (Dharma-/mindfulness-based or holistic), and the facility provides one of the only 45 (19.9 percent) LGBTQ treatment tracks in the state. BLVD also offers dedicated programming for professionals and young adults. All 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.
According to BLVD’s website, many staff bring with them years of experience in recovery or their own meditation practices, alongside their “extensive credentials,” though the specifics of these credentials are not listed.
