Duffy’s Launching Intensive Outpatient Treatment Program

In the coming weeks, Duffy’s will officially open its first intensive outpatient program (IOP). The program builds upon our 49-year heritage of comprehensive inpatient treatment, and gives our guests a treatment option that helps them balance their recovery with day-to-day life.

The IOP facility, located in downtown Calistoga, includes space for both one-on-one and group counseling sessions.


Back in 1967 Gene Duffy, a passionate recovering alcoholic, started Duffy’s Napa Valley. Nearly 50 years later, we’re still guided by our founder’s passion: helping people who suffer from addictions to alcohol and drugs find hope and a life of lasting recovery.

“This is powerful work. Designed not only to create and enhance sobriety but to facilitate change and propel guests to the next stage in their life—and that’s what we’re really excited about,” says Kessner.


Each week we’ll focus on one of our themes, such as Hope, Promise, Trust, or Dignity.

Throughout our 8-week program, we make an intentional effort to teach you how to do the following:

  • Break the cycle of addiction
  • Manage anger and resentments
  • Identify healthy relationships
  • Understand healthy nutrition
  • Trust the process and the journey
  • Forgive others and yourself
  • Practice spiritual living

The program includes 9 hours of weekly group sessions spread over three days, plus individual counseling, and a full clinical assessment. Here’s the full list:

  • 1 full clinical assessment upon intake
  • Education group 3 times per week
  • 6 individual counseling sessions spaced over 8 weeks
  • Exclusive videos from Duffy’s Napa Valley Productions library
  • Urinalysis to provide accountability


We’ve designed our IOP treatment option for those looking to start or continue their recovery from addiction while maintaining life outside of treatment.

If you find yourself in one of the following situations, IOP may be a good choice for you:

  1. Even though you struggle with addiction, you have remained mostly functional with your work and family responsibilities.
  2. You’re unable to attend residential rehab due to financial restraints, or work and family obligations.
  3. You have completed residential rehab and are looking for help transitioning back into everyday life.
