Is my cat Daisy stoned on the feliway? Bonus question- how best to handle introducing her to the current cat occupant of the house who is hostile to everyone except my mom.

I had to move myself and my indoor/outdoor cat back home. My escape artist cat is going to need to adjust to life as an indoor cat, as there the house is located pretty much at the corner of two major 4 lane roads and I like my kitty in 3-D format. I'm embarrassed to tell you how many cats my parents told me "found a new home with a nice grandma down the street" as I was growing up.
Her great distress and my lack of sleep after the first night let me to get a feliway diffuser. There is definite improvement... after 2 more days, she started eating and drinking and using the litter box. But she just seems unfocused and, really, kinda like she's stoned. Anyone else had this experience?
She is currently confined to one (my) room, due to my mother's cat who is only friendly towards her, and becomes a raging whirl-a-claw when approached by other members of the family. Should I invest in 80 thousand more feliway diffusers for the rest of the house before letting her explore the rest of the house?
