Granite Wellness Centers embraces a whole-person approach in treating substance use disorders and associated behavioral issues with a primary focus on the family system. This holistic approach to recovery and wellness means offering our clients a full range of services to support complete and enduring recovery. Granite Wellness Centers provides an array of integrated, individual and family-centered services to address substance use disorders and related behavioral health issues, focused on outcomes of long-term individual and family recovery, contributive citizenship, and family functioning. Services include outpatient counseling (adults and adolescents), education classes (including DUI), withdrawal management and residential treatment, medication assisted treatment, recovery residence housing, child development programs, and ancillary services including anger management, parenting classes, and children’s programs. Granite Wellness also serves as fiscal agent for and committed partner to prevention with The Coalition for Auburn and Lincoln Youth and The Coalition for Nevada County Youth.

Granite Wellness Centers embraces a whole–person approach in treating substance use disorders, related addictions, and associated behavioral issues…with a primary focus on the family system. Granite Wellness is not only about recovery but about individual, family and community wellness with the focus of addressing one of our community’s most pressing challenges—substance use disorders—through a strong continuum of prevention, early intervention, treatment, and after-care support. This holistic approach to recovery and wellness means offering our clients a full range of services to support complete and lasting wellness. Granite Wellness Centers offers a high quality, structured, personalized array of services to each client and their family. In collaboration with each client, an individualized, asset-based treatment, wellness, and aftercare plan is developed and implemented to create the greatest opportunity for success. We achieve this through our continuum of care that highlights programs in residential and outpatient treatment, recovery residences, and child development.

Residential: Granite Wellness Centers provides a safe environment to foster growth and positive change for men and women to begin their journey to recovery and wellness. Our residential programs offer an asset-based treatment and wellness plan to create the greatest opportunity for success for each individual. Residential treatment and withdrawal management provides intensive support to begin the journey to recovery through individual and group counseling, family support, recreation and exercise, and case management services to enhance success and health. Outpatient: Granite Wellness Centers works with approximately 1900 people enrolled in our programs at any given time— step-by-step, moment-by-moment, one day at a time. Primary outpatient treatment programs in Truckee, Kings Beach, Grass Valley, Auburn, Lincoln and Roseville provide counseling, evidence-based curriculum and support to men, women and teens. Intensive outpatient programming supports a higher level of care. Specific programs include: • Mothers in Recovery, supporting pregnant and parenting women. • Adolescent programs for teens with problematic substance use • Driving Under the Influence (DUI) education Recovery Residences: Granite Wellness Centers knows that a positive living environment, that supports recovery and helps people build a solid foundation, is essential for long term success. In recovery residencies clients have the opportunity to set and achieve life goals. Our recovery residences provide a clean and sober environment that supports residents as they are establishing a healthy and stable life. These residents were provided with a safe, supportive environment with unconditional positive regard and fellowship necessary to learn to live a fulfilling life in recovery. Child Development: Granite Wellness Centers began our child development program to reduce barriers to accessing treatment for parents by providing safe, onsite care for their children. However, we quickly realized that we had a very important opportunity to intervene and support the development of young children who have experienced inconsistent parenting, at best, and in many cases trauma, neglect, and abuse. Our child development program is designed to support young children whose parent or parents (usually a single mother) are in treatment for a substance use disorder. The child development program provides quality care and a nurturing, safe and loving environment for young children. Little ones in our program find security (they have often lacked), nurturing, and fun. For children 7-12, Granite’s Program offers educational support groups to help children to understand addiction and how to make healthier choices for themselves. This program provides lessons on developing life and coping skills, in a fun and entertaining way appropriate for young children.

We evaluate every program by monitoring a well developed matrix of data on an annual basis.

Residential: Granite Wellness Centers supports 87 beds of residential treatment for adult men and women: • Auburn Campus Residential: 28 beds for adult men and women • Grass Valley Campus Residential: 40 beds for adult men and women, and women with children • Lovett Campus Residential: 19 beds for adult men and women During the fiscal year 2018/2019 Auburn residential served 177 men and 188 women. Our Grass Valley residential served 40 men and women total. Outpatient: Granite Wellness Centers works with approximately 1900 people enrolled in our programs at any given time— step-by-step, moment-by-moment, one day at a time. Primary outpatient treatment programs in Truckee, Kings Beach, Grass Valley, Auburn, Lincoln and Roseville provide counseling, evidence-based curriculum and support to men, women and teens. Intensive outpatient programming supports a higher level of care. Specific programs include: • Mothers in Recovery, supporting pregnant and parenting women. • Adolescent programs for teens with problematic substance use • Driving Under the Influence (DUI) education Mothers in Recovery contributes to restoring confidence, strength and health as women learn practical living skills and overcome trauma. This past year 174 women (61 women in Grass Valley, 59 women in Auburn, and 74 women in Roseville) found support to be clean, strong, and healthy women and parents. Across the programs, 56 moms were reunited with their children as they demonstrated the health, strength, and parenting capacity for children to live with them following Child Protective Services intervention. These are children now growing up in a home, with their moms. Our adolescent program provides life changing help to teens with substance use issues and emerging mental health issues. GWC worked with 59 teens in Nevada County in individualized programs and served 184 teens in local high schools. Within Placer County, we served 70 teens in outpatient programs at Granite Wellness sites and reached 201 teens in the high schools. Granite Wellness Centers provided tools and techniques to empower these adolescents to handle challenging family and social situations, address trauma, understand themselves, and learn new ways to live free of alcohol and other drugs. GWC’s DUI program is designed to encourage participants to change attitudes and behavior. Granite Wellness Centers has helped 1,705 DUI clients in Placer County and 625 in Nevada County. GWC’s DUI classes address effects of alcohol and/or drugs on the body, both physically and mentally, DUI laws, This past year, 211 children found fun and love in the Child Develop programs (144 children in Nevada County and 67 in Placer County). The program provides opportunities for parents to engage with their children, and learn developmentally appropriate practices. Educated experienced staff ensure that parents can see firsthand how important a safe, stable environment is for the growth and development of their children.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
