ABOUT DUFFY’S NAPA VALLEY REHAB

Nestled on 23 acres in picturesque Napa Valley, Duffy’s is less than two hours’ drive from both San Francisco and Sacramento. Founded in 1967 and named after its founder, Gene Duffy, this family-run business offers residential treatment and step-down outpatient care for individuals struggling with substance abuse. Detox is frequently arranged via a local detox facility.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment begins with an initial assessment to determine a person's medical and treatment history. Though it is not a dual diagnosis facility, those struggling with a co-occurring mental health disorder may be admitted if they are stable. The standard residential program lasts 30 days, but the center also offers an extended recovery program, offering stays of 60 or 90 days. There’s also a shorter relapse program for those who have already completed a primary residential stay.

Treatment is based on the 12-Steps, which are supplemented by individual and group therapy, medication management, discharge planning, and experiential therapies such as meditation, art therapy, and music sessions. Being a family business, Duffy’s emphasizes the role of the family in successful recovery, and offers family sessions every weekend.

Duffy’s offers 90 days of one-on-one aftercare support and a year of free follow-up sessions for any client graduating the residential program. Outpatient programming includes a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP), which are also offered as step-down care for individuals graduating the residential program.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Duffy’s is a family business, currently on its fourth generation of family leadership. Aside from family members, the facility employs numerous counselors whose credentials are not disclosed, but some of whom are themselves graduates of the Duffy program. The four individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it an average rating of 4.5 out of five stars.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The facility is an attractive, traditional family home, with extensive well-kept grounds. Inside, there are simple, cozy bedrooms (both private and shared), space for yoga, and a dining room; outside, there’s a swimming pool, patios, water features, and tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Of the 10 reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date, eight were positive, one was mixed, and one was negative. The reviewers repeatedly praised the center’s food, the location and environment, and the counselors. “I was treated with such loving care, they have an experienced chef to make us healthy meal 3 times a day, 7 days a week,” Bernice wrote in a representative review. In isolated comments, C.M. wrote that the center was “cheap by other facilities’ standards,” and Dennis praised the center’s continuing care and contact after treatment.

“This is no medical facility, and without access to a doctor, this whole thing is a hoax for money. Be prepared to be bored and get ignored in a very bad way,” John wrote in the only outright negative review; John also cited rude staff and difficulty seeing clinicians. And in a mixed review, Michael wrote: “I think they should provide counselors who advocate alternatives to the 12 step model.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Of the five reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date, four were positive and one mixed. There was little overlap between the reviewers’ comments. “Helps the person with the treatment as well as the family,” one anonymous reviewer wrote, and another echoed alumni by praising the center’s scenery and atmosphere. “Large staff but It was way too expensive,” an anonymous reviewer wrote in the only less glowing review.

WHAT STAFF SAY

Both staffers polled by Rehabs.com to date spoke positively of Duffy’s, both referring to the “miracles” they had seen at the facility. “Duffys has existed since the 60's. I've seen so many miracles happen there! Its a homey atmosphere. you don't feel like you are in a institution. The setting is magnificent,” Kit wrote in a representative review.

FINANCING

Duffy’s is in-network with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, and accepts all PPO policies on an out-of-network basis. The center also accepts self-payment, and can arrange financing for those with good credit.

helps the person with the treatment as well as the family. Great scenery and atmosphere. Knowledgeable and helpful counselors. Food was generic so everyone can eat the same thing. Puts you in an atmosphere that you don't need alcohol or drugs to feel relaxed. Conselors help you think of the serene places when you feel anxiety coming on.

Duffy\'s is a scam. In my first week during detox I didn\'t get to see a doctor even though I pleaded to see one; I didn\'t get to see a counselor even though one was assigned to me and I pleaded to see him; I was treated in a very rude manner by 2 staff members, including the on-duty front desk personnel telling me to \"go to your room\"; then moving me into a room with a roommate that had spread fecal material on the walls and furniture. Then, the clinical director tells me I should take some anti-craving meds: a clinical psychologist recommending medication from a doctor that can\'t see me. This place is a hoax. They even requested a copy of my EKG and they have no medical staff. Absolutely a hoax for young people and their families on there first go around. They even had an assistant trying to resolve my medical records issue because they requested procedures that had been performed 2 weeks earlier at my own physicians office, and had failed to ask me about any recent medical test history. This is no medical facility, and without access to a doctor, this whole thing is a hoax for money. Be prepared to be bored and get ignored in a very bad way.

It was cheap by other facilities' standards. The main administrator was a genius and knew his stuff from his own experiences ...it was real...no sugar coating...he was gruff and caring all at once.

Very pleasant location. Very good food. Men are permitted to interact with women. It was just a very good experience.

I think they should provide counselors who advocate alternatives to the 12 step model. It is a very clean, safe environment with caring counselors that help you figure out how to achieve sobriety. It is expensive (hardly the facility's fault) treatment that only focuses on 12 steps. I have been sober over two years now without AA.

Strengths of the facility included: class staff, counselling, accommodations, food. It was worth the cost because of their 47 years of experience, it is family run and there is excellent staff and care. I chose this facility because my wife studied various facility's and found many favorable reviews for Duffy's.
