We also offer music, art, and trauma-informed therapies, in addition to the usual group and individual therapy courses. We also have a variety of treatment modalities, including but not limited to cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and dialectical behavior therapy. Recovery involves much more than giving up substances; it involves a whole new way of living and connecting with yourself and others. At Oxford, we have an ideal environment that allows us to provide a whole host of activities and amenities that allow you to connect to nature, reflect, restore your physical health, and reconnect. Whether you want to focus on strengthening your body at our fitness centers, meditate on the banks of our private lake, or work with animals in our equine therapy program, our facility will provide a variety of features to not only make your time with us enjoyable, but to give you the best possible head start in recovery. While your recovery toolkit will have filled up nicely by the end of your time with us, not everybody is ready to move forward alone. Oxford’s aftercare planners and alumni coordinators will make sure you have a plan and a support network for transitioning back into the world after treatment. We also know the importance of making and maintaining a network of sober individuals, so we’ll connect you with local AA and 12-step chapters and with a national alumni network to provide you with a comprehensive support network for recovery.

Specialization

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Do NOT believe ANYTHING they tell you!! I am diabetic and I was told there would be accommodations. I skipped at least one meal a day!! There is a lot inconsistency here. You have to advocate for yourself. I have never been through this and I had to ASK for everything instead of being advised. Also, I asked for an itemized statement when I got a surprise bill. I still have not gotten it . I like to think most people are good, but that is NOT the case here. The pictures they show you online are the new cabins. The rest have crappy, smaller than twin size beds with horrible mattresses. They would only give me one pillow and a light blanket and the mattresses SQUEAK so loud that we woke up every time someone moved. My roomie and I were sooooo cold!!! The mattress were so bad, every time someone moved out, we would see if theirs was better and swap them out. The first time I did that, I found a bunch of condom wrappers under the mattress. The mattresses squeaked so loud, we would wake up. The guy that comes in to the rooms in the middle of the night smokes cigars and shines the light on your face. I have PTSD and would wake up every hour when he came in. They never warned me about this. They did NOTHING to help with the outpatient treatment. I sat in the office making ALL of the appointments myself. Do your research and find a better place.

This facility was top notch and I would recommend this rehab to anyone who is serious about recovery. They also had a good medical staff on site to help with mental issues and medication.

I appreciate the personal attention and interest in my recovery extended to me by staff here. I am very pleased with the person I am sixty days after arriving. I arrived hopeless and stuck in negativity. I am leaving stronger, more confident, and determined to correct character defects and maintain my recovery.

My son is currently there for the 3rd time. We have now figured out why he likes it so much. They let him take naps, have his cell phone 24/7 and sneak and have sex with girls. He refuses condoms and already has 1 child he doesn't take care of. He jokes about the therapy offered there. So basically this is a camp. I'm calling my insurance company first thing in the morning to report this. I've reached out to thousands of parents in a group asking if they've ever heard of a "rehab" run like this and they're telling me to get him out immediately. This is NOT a rehab. It's a camp!
