R Quest Counseling


R QuestThe Basics

R Quest Counseling is an intimate outpatient treatment facility located in Pleasanton, California. The program was created in 2005 by Marcy Hawkins (a licensed advanced alcohol and drug counselor, CDAC and certified compulsive gambling counselor who wished to expand her private practice for men, women and families to include substance abuse therapy at a group level.

The program is divided into two phases, allowing clients to be gently introduced to recovery and gain the confidence to continue their sobriety after they complete treatment. R Quest bases its treatment on the three “Rs” of success—Resource, Recovery and Rebuild—teaching that with the right resources, anyone can achieve recovery and begin to rebuild their lives.

Treatment and Staff

The Alcohol and Drug Recovery (AOD) program at R Quest is individualized to meet the unique needs of each client. The program aims to help men and women free themselves from the physical and emotional bondage of addiction. Prior to enrollment, all potential clients must participate in an assessment and individualized treatment plans are developed with Hawkins. Individual therapy sessions are held once per week with the lead counselor.

Group therapy is an essential component of the AOD recovery program. Using CBT methodology, clients are able to work through their emotional and mental issues in a supportive environment, gaining awareness of their disease and the repercussions of using and learning relapse prevention techniques.

In addition to client-only groups, a large family group is held weekly with clients and their families together. All groups are led by an MFT who focuses on healing the rifts that addiction causes in the family. Family members also benefit from private family therapy sessions as often as needed to support the client.

Remaining sober through the course of treatment is essential and drug testing is done off property at a local processing laboratory. R Quest encourages clients to use 12-step programs but does not require attendance at meetings. The facility hosts speakers from a local meeting to help bring the AA/NA community into the facility itself.

The R Quest program is divided into two phases, the first of which is three months long and includes two group sessions and one individual session per week (held Monday through Friday from late morning to early evening). Individuals design their own treatment schedules to accommodate work and commitments to their families. Family groups are available on weekends and typically last one and a half to two hours. Process groups during the week typically last one and a half hours. Individual sessions average an hour in length.

Phase two lasts for one to two months and decreases individual therapy to every other week. Clients continue to attend two group sessions per week.


R Quest offers a unique four-week family program that provides support and bonds clients with their loved ones. This track teaches families how they can support other families, rather than just the addict—similar to the Al-Anon approach. Families are encouraged to attend Al-Anon meetings since addiction is considered a family disease. The program can be extended by request.

In Summary

Clients at R Quest can expect to receive individualized attention in an intimate and private setting. With both an outpatient treatment program and an involved family program, the rehab examines the causes and conditions of substance abuse from every angle. With an experienced staff, clients can expect a treatment experience tailored to their unique recovery needs.
