As with other Crestwood programs, many of our clients participate in the innovative Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) treatment model and Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills training. Pre-Vocational training is offered and clients are able to participate in the Dreamcatchers Empowerment Network Program.

Crestwood Vallejo offers Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT is a form of therapy developed by Marsha Linehan Ph.D. at the University of Washington that is an evidence-based practice used to treat clients with Borderline Personality Disorder. DBT assists clients in learning skills to help them to regulate their emotional responses to situations that occur in their lives that they may have previously responded to in a self-destructive or aggressive manner.

DBT comprehensive group is offered bi-weekly for 12 weeks and consists of individual therapy sessions that are held weekly with an individual therapist to review line and diary cards that a client keeps daily with homework. Also weekly 2-5 hour skills training classes are held that focus on emotional regulation skills, mindfulness skills, interpersonal effectiveness skills, and distress tolerance skills.

Clients at Crestwood Recovery and Rehabilitation Center participate in a largely self-initiated recovery process, directed by their individual WRAP. Clients progress through the structured levels of our program at their own pace, with support every step of the way. We offer a diverse array of classes ranging from core recovery to creative arts, independent living skills, breath and sound and holistic healing. We also offer peer groups such as Dual Recovery Support, AA/NA, Special Men’s issues and Women’s Assertiveness group and DBT support groups. Clients have access to on-site educational opportunities and representatives from numerous faith groups visit our facility each week, allowing for spiritual growth.

Clients also participate in our Dreamcatchers Empowerment Network program in the facility as service workers, which helps them to achieve meaningful employment.
