about crestwood Pleasant Hill

At Crestwood Healing Center in Pleasant Hill, you will find a supportive, compassionate, and inclusive community. As we are all unique, each person’s time in our programs is as well. We carry the foundational belief that we in this community are here to grow and better ourselves, and patience is necessary in respecting and supporting each other’s process.

Our services begin with our terrific staff; we hire based on our organizational values and place a greater emphasis on character than past education or experience. Commitment to our community and the people we serve is of the utmost importance, and from orientation, our employees are trained in the importance of meeting each individual where they are, and developing real, trusting, non-judgmental relationships.

Through our partnership with Dreamcatchers Empowerment Network, we provide on-site job opportunities for our residents, while receiving necessary training and coaching. Nearly 50% of our residents have paid jobs, and while we work within a person’s Social Security limitations, we have systems in place for when an individual decides they are ready to build on their vocational goals and work greater hours.

Our connection to our community is of great importance to us. As an award-winning green facility, we focus on building sustainability, not just within our campus, but outside it as well. Through education and volunteering, we seek to make Contra Costa County a more environmentally conscious place to live and work. Our focus on service spreads beyond our sustainability work, as we fundraise for charitable organizations and volunteer with our residents at different agencies on a weekly basis.

Within our programs, we offer a daily range of groups and activities aimed at skill development, creative expression, support and fun. Along with many other options, we offer the evidence-based practices Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP). These personalized services build hope, self-confidence and resilience, and mirror our individualized recovery service planning practices which are done with each resident.

Our individualized approach includes an on-site psychiatrist, medication coaching and support and some nursing services.  Additionally, our programs offer a variety of outlets for holistic health. From meditation classes, to volleyball leagues, to our in-house martial arts system, we encourage our residents and staff to pay attention to physical and spiritual health, and do so in ways that promotes fun, community and competition.

We run our campus collaboratively, and based in core values of equality, tolerance, social inclusion and acceptance. Being a part of this community means embracing and respecting each person, valuing diversity and supporting one another. We believe in our community and what we are capable of, and if you do too, we hope you’ll join us.
