The Foundational Program at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab is our flagship treatment program, and many alumni over decades of our history have found long-term healing because of this program. Designed for adult men and women ages 18 and older, the Foundational Program is a 30-day residential treatment program intended to help people who are struggling with primary substance use disorders as well as co-occurring mental health conditions.
The program is staffed by a team of caring and compassionate professionals, many of whom have personal experience with recovery. Our staff is kind-hearted, engaged, and dedicated to helping people recover, and they ensure that each guest who comes to heal with us truly feels that he or she belongs. Before coming to Duffy’s, many of our guests have never felt like they belong anywhere, but at Duffy’s, they are members of the family.
Furthermore, our treatment team works hard to practice what we preach. We work to maintain a high level of honesty and integrity in what we do and would not ask somebody to change a behavior or adopt a philosophy that we are not practicing ourselves.
The Foundational Program includes a number of interventions designed to help individuals overcome substance use disorders. Some of these interventions include:
Detox, or detoxification, provides individuals with a safe and comfortable environment where they can have time to rid their bodies of substances of abuse. At Duffy’s, we work closely with a detox center only five minutes away. This allows our guests to receive quality detox services before transitioning directly into our Foundational Program.
Individual therapy is a key component of the Foundational Program. During individual therapy, guests meet with their primary care counselor, a highly-trained and experienced clinician, for twice-weekly meetings. These sessions are a prime opportunity for individuals to process their successes and setbacks in treatment, receive individualized support, and discuss matters that they may not be comfortable bringing up during groups.
Groups are the backbone of treatment at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab, and guests in the Foundational Program spend much of their day participating in various groups. Groups allow guests to give and receive support, learn from their peers, and practice skills that they are learning in treatment. These groups are led by both counseling staff members and peers in the treatment program. Groups led by counseling staff members are gender-specific and often include a check-in as well as experiential training or processing. They also focus on mindfulness, responsibility, and self-awareness. Peer-led groups are specialty groups that focus on one of more than 50 different topics. These topics include relapse prevention, acceptance, powerless and unmanageability, and other recovery and self-reflective topics.
Individuals who participate in treatment for substance use disorders often benefit from many different kinds of care. Experiential therapy is a type of care that allows guests to use not just their minds but also their bodies in their efforts to build sober living skills. We offer a range of experiential groups and processes, including:
- Emotion-focused therapy
- Art therapy
- Trusting the Process
- Music and Recovery
- Crossing the Line
- Surrender falls and trust-building exercises
Substance use disorders do not just affect individuals, but also entire families as the effects of one family member’s substance abuse ripples outward into the family system. As such, at Duffy’s, we are proud to provide family therapy sessions every week for our guests and their families. Family therapy is held on the weekends and includes educational groups that both family members and guests can attend. Lunch is included during these weekend sessions and guests may request a private session with his or her primary care counselor and their families if they would like. This session is usually completed during the last week of treatment, and it usually includes a discussion about the discharge plan.
Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab has a psychiatrist on retainer to provide medication management services. Guests who would benefit from including medications as a part of their treatment program will interact with our Guest Services staff members on a day-to-day basis to receive their medications. These staff members are trained to meet state standards and interact with an electronic system to ensure safety. They also ensure that guests are taking the correct medications and maintain electronic records of medication dosages and administration.
A successful transition back into everyday life after treatment is one of the predictors of long-term sobriety. Therefore, at Duffy’s, we begin planning for discharge from day one of treatment to ensure that our guests are discharged into appropriate care environments. Some guests may wish to stay with us beyond the 30 days of the Foundational Program and those guests are welcome to join our Extended Relapse Prevention Program. Guests in this program will benefit from continuing in residential care while diving deeper into the 12 Steps and building their recovery skills. We are also happy to provide our guests with continuing care through our partnership with Full Circle Recovery.
