Rehabs 360 Guide


In the quiet city of Chico in Northern California, about 100 miles north of Sacramento, Skyway House offers residential and outpatient treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder. Detoxification services are not available on-site.


Treatment at Skyway House begins with a comprehensive assessment to determine the best method of treatment for each client. Clients must commit to at least 30 days of treatment but may stay for up to six months in residential care. The facility is among the 33.6 percent of rehabs in California to offer residential programming lasting longer than 30 days.

Treatment includes 12-step programming, individual and group counseling, and workshops on topics such as relapse prevention and anger management. The facility regularly hosts family activities, and family counseling is included when appropriate.

Outpatient options include a intensive outpatient program (IOP), which is a modality offered by 39.4 percent of treatment facilities in California, and an outpatient program {OP), a modality available in 63.2 percent of California treatment facilities. Both programs last 12 weeks. In addition, a free weekly aftercare group is available for graduates.


Skyway House's treatment team includes certified counselors, physicians, and nurses. To date, the seven individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com applauded the aptitude of staff.
