Skyway House Philosophy

Skyway House's mission is to treat the whole person —mind, body, and spirit — instead of simply focusing on the symptoms of drug and alcohol addiction. The substance abuse rehab offers a variety of treatment programs — residential, outpatient, and sober living — to provide each client with a level of care that’s both appropriate and effective. Along with individualized treatment plans carried out by a compassionate staff of certified addiction counselors, clients are provided with the invaluable tools and skills they’ll need to maintain a sober and healthy life.

Areas of Specialization

  • Out Patient
    Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.

  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

David Deichler has been working in the field of addiction treatment since 2002. In January of 2005 Mr. Deichler came to work for the Skyway House in the capacity of a residential counselor and over the years has had the opportunity to work in all aspects of our treatment programs including administration. This unique set of experiences has given Mr. Deichler a great understanding of the treatment we provide, the population we serve and a more in depth understanding of addiction and how it is negatively impacting the families and communities of Northern California.

ABOUT SKYWAY HOUSE

In the quiet city of Chico in Northern California, about 100 miles north of Sacramento, Skyway House offers residential and outpatient treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder. Detoxification services are not available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at Skyway House begins with a comprehensive assessment to determine the best method of treatment for each client. Clients must commit to at least 30 days of treatment but may stay for up to six months in residential care. The facility is among the 33.6 percent of rehabs in California to offer residential programming lasting longer than 30 days.

Treatment includes 12-step programming, individual and group counseling, and workshops on topics such as relapse prevention and anger management. The facility regularly hosts family activities, and family counseling is included when appropriate.

Outpatient options include a intensive outpatient program (IOP), which is a modality offered by 39.4 percent of treatment facilities in California, and an outpatient program {OP), a modality available in 63.2 percent of California treatment facilities. Both programs last 12 weeks. In addition, a free weekly aftercare group is available for graduates.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Of the five former clients surveyed by Rehabs.com to date, two gave Skyway House positive feedback, two gave it negative feedback, and one gave it a mixed review. The two satisfied clients reported that the facility was comfortable and the treatment was effective. "I spent 3 months there and was very satisfied," one wrote in a representative review.

The two unhappy reviewers complained about bad food and poorly trained staff, and almost all of the respondents noted that the facility lacked adequate exercise and holistic offerings.

On secondary sites, the rehab earned an average rating of 3.4 out of five stars based on five Google reviews[1] and a 4.1 out of five-star rating based on the opinions of 17 people on Facebook, which the facility may manage[2]. Comments about the rehab were mixed — some credited the facility with saving their lives. "Honestly the greatest decision I ever made," Darin wrote in a Google review representative of positive feedback.

However, others complained about untrained staff and a lack of resources. "They do not have the time to give much one on one attention. Based on the shoestring budget apparent at their program," Shellie wrote in a Facebook review representative of negative feedback.

This place is a flippin joke! $9000 a month is a bad deal; the counselors are very poorly trained and the leadership needs to have more hands on with the clients because the counselors don\'t know how to handle feedback or how to implement changes that are SERIOUSLY NEEDED. The accomodations are even more of a joke; the food is the same all the time.....TURKEY, TURKEY, TURKEY! Spoke with the CEO and the director and both state they care but NEVER follow up with complaints.....ACTIONS SPEAK A LOT LOUDER THAN WORDS, GO ELSEWHERE FOR YOUR TREATMENT, THESE PEOPLE DON\'T CARE AFTER THEY GET THE MONEY IN THEIR HANDS!!!

All of the employees are ex-felons and addicts so maybe they understand. They are mostly poorly trained... Very little real treatment for the price.

Strong emphasis on 12 step aftercare. Physical structure is too small. I worked there and would recommend it.

This program is understaffed and disorganized. The website is very misleading, making it seem worth more than it really is . If you receive the program for free, I'm sure it's worth doing. But I would choose another program if you're paying cash .

Beautiful place to get your loved ones rehabilitated. The Counselors provide a great program to help get them on the right path. However, I wasn't pleased with the treatment plans.

I spent 3 months there and was very satisfied. I have been clean for 4yrs and 11 months now. They were clean, respectful, and caring. However, there were no holistic activities.
