LAST UPDATED ON 12/17/2020

As updates on the impact of the coronavirus continue to be released, we want to take a moment to inform you of the heightened preventative measures we have put in place at Duffy's Napa Valley Rehab to keep our patients, their families, and our employees safe. All efforts are guided by and in adherence to the recommendations distributed by the CDC.

Please note that for the safety of our patients, their families, and our staff, on-site visitation is no longer allowed at Duffy's Napa Valley Rehab.

  • This restriction has been implemented in compliance with updated corporate and state regulations to further reduce the risks associated with COVID-19.
  • Options for telehealth visitation are continuously evaluated so that our patients can remain connected to their loved ones.
  • Alternate methods of communication for other services may be offered when deemed clinically appropriate.

For specific information regarding these changes and limitations, please contact us directly.

CDC updates are consistently monitored to ensure that all guidance followed is based on the latest information released.

  • All staff has received infection prevention and control training.
  • Thorough disinfection and hygiene guidance has been provided.
  • Patient care supplies such as masks and hand sanitizer are being monitored and utilized.
  • Temperature and symptom screening protocols are in place for all patients and staff.
  • Social distancing strategies have been implemented to ensure that patients and staff maintain proper distance from one another at all times.
  • Cleaning service contracts have been reviewed for additional support.
  • Personal protective equipment items are routinely checked to ensure proper and secure storage.
  • CDC informational posters are on display to provide important reminders on proper infection prevention procedures.
  • We are in communication with our local health department to receive important community-specific updates.

The safety of our patients, their families, and our employees is our top priority, and we will remain steadfast in our efforts to reduce any risk associated with COVID-19.

The CDC has provided a list of easy tips that can help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then immediately dispose of the tissue.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are frequently touched.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.

Admissions Process

Discover Duffy’s admission process and what can be done to sure you or your loved one is provided the most comfortable experience possible.

What Are the Criteria for Admissions?

We admit adults of at least 18 years of age who meet criteria for a substance use disorder. We do accept guests who have been court-referred by law enforcement.

What Do I Bring to Treatment?

  • Casual, Comfortable Clothes: Our atmosphere is casual and comfortable.
  • Personal Hygiene Items: Pack your toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, and shampoo, etc.
  • Prescription Medications: Pack your medications (in the original bottle with doctor prescribed protocol) in a plastic Ziplock bag to bring with you. These will be locked in an office and given to you at the appropriate times.
  • Cell phones: There are some restrictions as to when and where you can use your cell phone, but you may bring it with you. If your phone has a camera, be respectful of the anonymity of our guests. Please, only take pictures with other guests if you have their permission and do not post pictures on social networks. There is a blackout period where you will not be able to use your cell phone.
  • Duffy’s has vending machine snacks and merchandise for purchase.
  • Small Free Time Activities: We have many opportunities for you to exercise and get to know others in recovery, but feel free to pack a good book or some small games.

What Can I leave at Home?

  • Bedding and Towels (we provide them)
  • Valuables (But if you need to bring something valuable, we can secure it in our safe for you.)

Am I Able to Smoke or Use the Internet?

  • Smoking is allowed in a designated area of the facility.
  • We do have controlled internet access in a public area. You may also bring your personal laptop and connect to the wi-fi in designated areas.

Can I Get a Ride From the Airport?

We have contracted with a limousine company to provide transportation to and from the international airports in San Francisco, Oakland, and Sacramento. A one-way fare is about $200 (all of these airports are about 2 hours away). Our admission staff can help you set up this transportation.

When and How Do I Make a Down Payment?

Most people make a down payment before they arrive in order to confirm their reservation; however, if you have not already made a down payment by the time you arrive, you will be asked to do that during the admissions process.

Methods of payment include cash, cashier’s check, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

Where Should I Go When I Arrive at Duffy's?

Feel free to park your car in front of the main building (the one with the big front porch).

You can either leave your luggage in the car or on the front porch, but make sure you bring your medications—that you’ve already packed in a clear, plastic Ziploc bag—with you when you come inside.

If you have an scheduled appointment and arrival time, someone will meet you at the front door; otherwise, simply turn right after entering the building and then make a left at the end of the room—you’ll see the reception window in front of you.

What Happens During the Admit Process?

The admissions process generally takes about an hour. Family and friends are welcome to walk the grounds or visit in the lobby while you are being admitted.

During the admission process, you will meet with the doctor (as needed), give us your medical history, sign some legal paperwork, take some tests (i.e. breathalyzers), and make a down payment if you haven’t already made one.

After your paperwork and tests are completed, we will show your room to you and then give you some time to say goodbye to your friends and family.

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.
