Napa County has selected McAlister Institute, a San Diego-based organization, to operate a short-term residential and detoxification center at Napa State Hospital.
McAlister Institute offers resources for the care and treatment of individuals and families suffering from addiction and homelessness. With 34 years in San Diego County, this will be McAlister’s first venture outside the San Diego region.
Jeanne McAlister, founder and CEO of McAlister Institute and San Diego’s Mental Health Person of the Year for 2010, said that the organization’s Napa County programs will offer short-term residential treatment for people diagnosed with substance abuse or chemical dependency disorders.
“The selection of McAlister Institute is a tribute to the excellent programs the organization has provided to the San Diego community since 1977,” said McAlister. “Each of us at McAlister Institute is dedicated to helping individuals regain their lives by supporting the recovery process.”
McAlister Institute will incorporate a variety of modalities into the programs offered to the Napa County community.
The institute works with approximately 2,500 men, women, children and teens each month in San Diego County with inpatient and outpatient services and vocational training. McAlister offers teen programs in Ramona.
