Crestwood’s programs in Solano are based on the company’s commitment to providing mental health consumers a continuum of care that firmly puts them on the road to recovery. Additionally this campus offers an intensive program focused on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, commonly known as 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.
Embracing a mind, body, and spirit approach to recovery, Crestwood Solano has developed a home-style, from scratch cooking nutritional program using whole foods to support the total wellness and education of our consumers.
Our House is a 76-bed Adult Residential Facility (ARF)/ augmented Board and Care licensed by Community Care licensing. We serve individuals in a therapeutic environment assisting them in gaining their independence back into the community through wellness and recovery. Consumers at Our House work together to create a home-like atmosphere, with shared housekeeping, cooking and other chores.
Consumers are offered a variety of educational opportunities throughout the day from supported community college classes and in-house therapeutic groups which include the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP), Dual-Recovery, Medication Management, Adult Education, and Community Integration. A variety of outings throughout the Bay Area are planned by consumers each week. These outings provide consumers with experiences and a chance to feel comfortable in the community.
Consumers can also participate in our Field of Dreams Vocational Skills program that will assist them in gaining paid employment, in collaboration with Dreamcatchers Empowerment Network, onsite as well as outside employment, and to increase community involvement through volunteer work.
Consumers are actively involved in their personal rehabilitation and recovery, and given support in achieving their goals and dreams to help them embrace their individuality and their future through hope, self-advocacy, education, and empowerment.
