Crestwood Center San Jose embraces a commitment to providing the continuum of care consumers require on their road to recovery. Each consumer on our campus, whether they speak English, Spanish or Vietnamese, is given an individual rehabilitation plan, empowering and motivating consumers to be active participants in their recovery. Our personalized recovery plans help consumers develop skills to allow them to achieve a more independent, productive and satisfying lifestyle.
Our Wellness Recovery Action Plans (WRAP) encourage consumers to attend a broad array of classes and activities to strengthen their mental, physical, and social skills. Our classes range from core recovery programs to dual recovery and re-integration courses.
Crestwood Center San Jose 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 consists of individual therapy sessions that are held weekly with an individual therapist to review events from the past week, and diary cards that a client keeps daily and follows the treatment hierarchy. 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.
Crestwood Center San Jose also provides consumers with daily opportunities to participate in community life and foster the necessary skills to reintegrate themselves back into their communities.
