30 and 90-Day Treatment Programs

Our 30 and 90-day Treatment Programs for drug and alcohol addiction serve as the cornerstone for maintaining sobriety. Our 30-Day Program offers a complete battery of treatment in a shorter time frame for those who desire that. Our 90-Day Program is segmented into three 30-day "Stages", each covering a unique range of appropriate topics and protocols. Over the course of treatment, Clients are presented with an intensive daily regimen which takes place at the Skill House. The schedule includes group therapy sessions that focus on Early Recovery Skills, Relapse Prevention Skills, and Social Support in Recovery. Group therapy sessions run 1.5 hours, include up to 12 Client participants, and follow a curriculum-based process and problem solving approach. Individual counseling sessions run 50 minutes, though shorter sessions may be scheduled as a function of the Client’s needs or his counselor’s request to provide additional support or crisis management.

Addiction Treatment for Men in San Rafael, CaliforniaThe first 30-days of this core treatment program is referred to as "Stage 1".

Components of Stage 1 include:

  • Comprehensive Client Assessment (family, social, work, health, emotional, spiritual, legal, recovery patterns)
  • Assessing Client’s true motivation for change
  • Identification of core clinical issues
  • Stabilization (physical and emotional)
  • Identification of potential relapse risks
  • Completion of “Family Assessment” packet by Client’s family

During Stage 1 the Client will complete:

The next 30 days of treatment, or "Stage 2", offers group therapy sessions, as well as generous individual therapy sessions with a licensed therapist who will provide comprehensive treatment and discharge planning. Using a variety of treatment modalities, Clients closely examine the specific behaviors or situations that could trigger relapse. Coping strategies, that are designed to be both positive and life-affirming, are put into practice. Real-time interventions are utilized.
