Starting the Admissions Process

Starting the Admissions Process at Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab

At Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab, we understand the fears and worries that can accompany the decision to finally get help for a problem with alcohol or another drug. Regardless of how much a person has suffered, admitting that a problem exists and entrusting oneself into the care of others are pivotal moments that can understandably cause a person to second-guess him or herself or engage in moments of self-doubt.

Whether you have already decided to get help, or you are still in process of researching programs and determining what option is best for you, your efforts have brought you closer to the solutions that you have been searching for. If you choose Duffy’s, we will of course make every effort to help you achieve and surpass your objectives; if your path leads you in another direction, we will continue to respect your courage and celebrate your entry into the recovery community.

When a person enters treatment at Duffy’s, we do not consider him or her to be a client, a patient, or even a resident. At Duffy’s, the men and women who heal with us are our guests. From your first day in treatment until long after you have completed our program and returned home, we take great care to show you that we value you as a unique human being who is worthy of being treated with the utmost respect and dignity.

Duffy’s Napa Valley Rehab provides a well-structured program with weekly scheduled activities to provide the highest level of success.

On July 26th, 2013, I entered Duffy’s after detoxing. Thanks to the good foundation I got here, I am still sober! I hope the first Monday’s activities are checking out what meetings you will go to after you leave Duffy’s. I am still going to the ones I wrote down 5 years ago. Thanks for being there for folks like me who could not stop drinking.
