Founded in 1985 by Bill Twitchell and Chuck Bristte, Campobello Chemical Dependency Treatment Services provides residential and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) in two facilities. Located in Santa Rosa, California, Campobello treats men and women. It features a staff who has had special cultural diversity training to accommodate the unique needs of LGBTQ community. Utilizing evidence-based practices, Campobello merges traditional 12-step with neuro-scientific and pharmacological therapies.
Accommodations and Food
The residential program is located on a converted ranch in the heart of California’s wine country west of Santa Rosa. Surrounded by vineyards and a dairy farm, it is home to 25 men and women aged over 18, the property is secluded and serene. The surrounding rural landscape set a beautiful backdrop for recovery. Clients share rooms and bathrooms with one other, and while all furnishings and linens are provided, they are comfortable and basic. Food is prepared by on-site cooks, and is served communally. All meals are home-style and include tasty, homemade snacks.
The outpatient center is located near the residential facility, in west Santa Rosa. An easily accessible office complex, the space is large and ideal for group sessions.
Treatment and Staff
Upon admission, clients are assessed for medical needs and co-occurring disorders. Detox is offered for those recovering from alcohol, benzodiazepine and opiate addiction, and clients are medically monitored by doctors and nurses. Medication management is provided if deemed necessary, and is prescribed by a psychiatrist. Clients with existing psychiatric conditions are admitted to Campobello if stabilized and able to remain under psychiatric care.
Treatment is highly structured, and clients stay for 28 days. If longer-term treatment is required, arrangements are made at different centers, or sober living. Clients attend five 12-step meetings from the Sonoma County fellowship on-site each week. This forms the core of the recovery method, as step work with a sponsor is also facilitated. Clients will attend educational classes aimed at furthering knowledge about substance abuse and related problems. Small process groups offer settings in which clients can discuss personal developments and feelings in an intimate setting. Individual sessions with the client’s case manager occur weekly, and monitor progress and assess treatment goals. Additionally, chores and homework must be completed daily, followed by time for recreational activities.
Upon completing the residential program, clients may find additional support in the IOP. This outpatient program is also available to those that have not completed residential treatment. Consisting of around 24 sessions, clients learn to implement new behaviors and life skills. Groups offer peer-support, utilizing CBT, the MATRIX model and Motivational Interviewing (MI) are used in individual therapy. Relapse prevention is heavily emphasized, with clients working with LCSWs and CADCs. Group schedules vary and can accommodate work and school schedules.
Clients can enjoy swimming in the pool, basketball, volleyball and other outdoor games. Meditation spaces are created indoors and outdoors for relaxation and reflection.
The family program for loved ones of those in residential treatment occurs on Saturdays. Individual and group therapy can be scheduled, and is available by appointment. Visiting hours are on Sundays between noon and 4:30pm.
The aftercare program is offered for any client that has completed a treatment program, for two years. The group meets weekly and is facilitated by a certified drug and alcohol counselor. Contracted providers are available for clients living outside the Santa Rosa area. This program is offered free of charge.
The Campobello Chemical Dependency Recovery Center provides a highly structured continuum of care for clients with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Combining 12-step with other therapeutic modalities means clients have access to a variety of treatment options. The ability to transfer into an IOP after residential treatment is also a great way to build a strong foundation for recovery. Fees fluctuate depending on which substances are abused, and whether detox is required.
