overview

Crestwood’s programs in Vallejo are based on a commitment to providing mental health consumers a continuum of care that puts them well on the road to recovery. They include Crestwood Recovery and Rehabilitation Center, Crestwood Manor and Crestwood Hope Center. As with other Crestwood programs, many of our consumers participate in the innovative Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) treatment model and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills (DBT) training.  Pre-Vocational training is offered and consumers are able to participate in the Dreamcatchers Empowerment Network Program.

 Crestwood Vallejo offers Dialectical Behavioral 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.

Consumers at Crestwood Recovery and Rehabilitation Center participate in a largely self-initiated recovery process, directed by their individual WRAP. Consumers progress through the structured levels of our program at their own pace, with support every step of the way. We also offer a diverse array of classes ranging from core recovery to creative arts and independent living skills. Consumers have access to on-site educational opportunities and representatives from numerous faith groups visit our facility each week, allowing for spiritual growth.

Crestwood Manor is a skilled nursing facility dedicated to helping consumers transition to a more independent setting and providing the most comfortable environment possible for our longer-term residents. All consumers have personalized recovery programs that are designed to help them either work toward a lower level of care or maintain the highest possible level of functioning, and they receive assistance to help execute the activities of daily living. To ensure consumer comfort and continuity of care, we also offer palliative care, supporting consumers as they spend their final days with us.
