Pine Recovery FAQ

Pine Recovery Center is located at 120 West School Street, Visalia, CA. We offer comprehensive services for men in order to address all aspects of alcohol and substance abuse. Not only do we address the actual use, we also work to identify and address the underlying causes of the use as well. We provide services for co-occurring disorders and reintegration back into a prosocial lifestyle. We assist our clients with family reunification with the assistance of a family therapist because at Pine we understand that alcohol and substance abuse affects not only the person who is using but also the family. We also assist clients with employment, education, medical assistance, and any other needs as identified during initial intake with the program. All services are provided in Spanish as well.

During their time in the program, client will attend 12 step meetings, they will be required to attend at least 8 meetings per week. They will participate in educational/informational classes, whereas Living In Balance is facilitated. They will engage in process groups, using cognitive behavior therapy in any effort to identify risky thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and what to do when they occur in the future. They will also look at how their thinking controls their behaviors in these groups and work on changing that thinking in an effort to obtain more positive future outcomes in their lives. They will identify goals for their future and establish objectives to obtain these goals for this through working with staff and creating an individualized treatment plan. Specialized services for the co-occurring disorder clients are also provided. Not only do they attend 12 step meetings and cognitive behavior therapy groups, they attend groups that address specific areas of concern that they face related to emotional health.

An individual would contact Pine Recovery Center and will be referred to Visalia Integrated Services (Visalia Recovery Center), Tulare Works, or Tulare County Probation Department for an interview, assessment of needs, and placement.

Through comprehensive assessment tools (ASI), individual counseling sessions, and self-identification of client's risk and needs, a client's needs will be identified and addressed. Once the individual needs are identified through these different tools, the identified areas of concerns will be addressed through treatment planning, educational/informational services, medical services, and mental health services, and are revisited and updated on regular intervals to adjust as needed.

Pine Recovery Center currently has 2 "Detox" beds and they are provided on a first come, first served basis. A 3 to 5 day commitment is desired for the detoxification in order to provide the most stable exit for the individual and is also dependent upon the substances that were involved. Upon their release, they are then referred to Visalia Recovery Center for further assessment and placement as needed.

All clients receive confidential treatment and services. No information is provided about a client without a written authorization and is only supplied to the individuals who are on that release. Regular visiting times are provided and begin once the client's orientation period has ended. Clients receive regular passes which vary from 8 hours to 48 hours depending on length of time client has been in the program. There are phones available for the participants to both use and receive calls and cell phones are permitted with staff approval and upon completion of orientation period.

Pine Recovery Center employs staff that are registered and certified by the state to provide alcohol and other drug treatment services. They are well trained and versed in a variety of modalities and are required to maintain licensure and certification in order to continue to provide treatment. The staff have been trained in culturally and linguistically appropriate services and strives to improve their knowledge and ability to provide the best service possible through continuing education units yearly as well.

There are a variety of payment methods. Pine Recovery Center accepts self pay clients, county and state funded clients, and insurance covered clients. Cost is dependent upon services rendered and will be discussed and determined at the time of initial contact.

The residential portion of the program can vary from 30 to 150 days. Following completion of residential services, a client will enter into the continuum of care phase which will last for a combined period with residential services of one year of total abstinence. Upon completion of the residential portion the client also has the ability to gain acceptance into one of the 3 sober living environments (January House East, January House West, or January House South). During the continuum of care phase, the clients are also asked to become a volunteer for the program, because research has shown that by staying involved the client has the ability to increase their chances of long term recovery. Following the one year completion mark, the client will receive a certificate of completion at the Central Valley Recovery Services monthly Alumni meeting.

Persons with disabilities are provided with the same services and all state requirements are met in order to provide any assistance an individual may have. All client's at Central Valley Recovery Services are treated equally without regard to ethnic group identification, color, religion, ancestry, natural origin, gender, age, marital status, sexual identity, political affiliation, disabled veteran or veteran of Vietnam era, medical condition, or condition of physical or mental disability.

Clients are encouraged to work on employment preparation while in the program, such as determining their employment needs, job readiness identification, and resume creation. If a client enters the program while employed, the client will be required to take time off work for treatment services. The client has the ability to apply for state disability insurance. If taking time off from work is unacceptable the client may need to look into services through the intensive outpatient portion of the program.
