Our goal is to give you the tools you need to live a healthy life, free from dependence on drugs and alcohol. As with any chronic disease, there is no “cure” for addiction. Overcoming dependence requires lifelong discipline and an ability to see beyond the struggles you face. Our role is to show you the way and offer the support you need for successful recovery. The recovery process begins as we work with you to understand your unique needs and match them with the broad range of services we offer.

At Oxford Treatment Center, we open the door to new beginnings.

Medical Detox

Medical detoxification and stabilization is the critical first step in the recovery process. When the body is dependent upon drugs and alcohol, both physically and psychologically, that dependence must be broken before one can begin to envision a new, clean life.

At Oxford Treatment Center, we structure our medical detoxification program with patient comfort, safety and privacy in mind. Patients spend the detox period in a dedicated medical services facility, where experienced nursing staff is on duty 24/7. The process begins as they settle into semi-private rooms, each with its own private bathroom. Common spaces within the facility are designed for comfort and peace.

Oxford Treatment Center’s medical detoxification program is overseen by our medical team, which includes physicians and nursing staff. These specialists provide the most advanced detoxification available, using appropriate medical protocols to minimize the effects of withdrawal.

Medical detox and stabilization is a very critical first step in the recovery process.

Drugs for which we provide detoxification services include:

  • Alcohol.
  • Opiates including heroin and opiod painkillers like hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percocet), morphine (Kadian, Avinza), codeine and related drugs.
  • Benzodiazepines like alprazolam (Xanax) and diazepam (Valium).
  • Barbituates like mephobarbital (Mebaral), Phenobarbital (Luminal Sodium), and pentobarbital sodium (Nembutal).

We also provide acute stabilization for withdrawal from drugs such as:

  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Ecstasy (MDMA)
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Meth

Oxford Treatment Center’s medical team is experienced in treating patients who face a mental-health issue such as depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety alongside their substance abuse problem. Such a condition is called a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis.

Because those who struggle with mental-health issues are at greater risk for developing substance-abuse problems, a dual diagnosis is common. The best chance for recovery, our approach at Oxford Treatment Center, comes through integrated treatment for both addiction and mental-health problems.

Family Program

Involving family members and significant others in the patient’s recovery process is a hallmark of Oxford Treatment Center’s comprehensive addiction treatment program.

Through our robust Family Program, Oxford Treatment Center makes it a priority to invest in and care for the individuals whose support will be critical in a patient’s recovery.

Family members and significant others know well the wrenching pain of living with someone in active addiction. Through Oxford Treatment Center, they too can embrace hope for a new life as they walk alongside a loved one in recovery.

  • The importance of family participation in recovery
  • Addiction as a family disease
  • Family dynamics in the disease process of addiction
  • The impact of addiction on family members
  • Treatment strategies to facilitate family healing

Outpatient Services

After residential treatment, programs at our outpatient offices provide the next step in our continuum of care. They provide continuing therapy, structure and accountability during the transition back into everyday life.

For some people, outpatient programs can launch a successful recovery without the need for 30-day residential treatment. Our assessment team can recommend the most appropriate course of treatment based on the acuity of the addiction. Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) can be the right fit to begin recovery for people who:

  • Need to continue working or going to school
  • Have experienced effects of addiction in life, but are able to maintain a job and family relationships
  • Are prevented from entering residential treatment due to finances, insurance restrictions or other factors

IOP provides:

Accountability

The IOP group meets three times each week for an average of 10 weeks, with additional individual sessions. You will gain a 12-step sponsor and continue in 12-step meetings and Aftercare.

Therapy

Group, individual and family sessions enable you to address the issues that helped fuel substance-abuse problems in your life. Our in-house medical staff treats common co-occurring issues like depression and anxiety.

Education

Our credentialed therapists, many in recovery themselves, explain how addiction affects the brain, and equip you to avoid triggers and prevent relapse.

Additional services offered at our outpatient offices include: Drug and Alcohol Assessments, Individual Counseling, Group Counseling, Family Counseling, Intervention Services, Drug Testing, and Community Education.

Sober Living

In residential treatment, every day is highly structured and oriented around your health and healing. Afterward, you must begin to take ownership of your own recovery, one step at a time.

For most people, going straight home after treatment is not the best choice. Staying in a sober living environment with others in early recovery gives you a chance to practice the new ways of life you have learned during your time in residential treatment.

After residential treatment, many people choose to live in a sober environment while they take part in an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). While IOP may be covered by insurance, sober housing rent is not covered by insurance. In addition to the community benefits, living in Oxford Treatment Center’s sober environment provides transportation to IOP and aftercare sessions and to local 12-Step meetings. Staff supervision and regular drug screenings provide additional accountability.

Building new friendships, finding positive activities and developing new habits are all part of this transition.

In order to provide a completely supportive continuum of care, weekly Aftercare is available for Oxford Treatment Center alumni in their first two years of recovery.

In Aftercare, alumni explore successes, obstacles and daily issues that confront them, and receive feedback and support from the group facilitator and other participants. The Oxford Treatment Center Aftercare program consists of a weekly group, facilitated by an experienced counselor who helps guide patients in their recovery efforts, assisting them in reaching their goals.

It is time to practice new habits.

Alumni

Sharing your recovery with others who have experienced the same trials and triumphs gives you strength that may be hard to find on your own. After completing treatment from drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to maintain the relationships that you have built along the way. Throughout the lifelong journey of recovery, you will need one another.

Oxford Treatment Center helps to foster these ongoing relationships by hosting frequent gatherings for our alumni. Our alumni program is part of AAC Alumni, a nationwide network of support.

When you are in recovery, sharing others’ experiences is a powerful way to find encouragement. Seeing how others change and grow builds hope that you will also find your way. Seeing the consequences of relapse in others’ lives is a reminder to guard your recovery ever more closely. In the times when you doubt your own ability to build a healthy and sober life, realizing that others believe in you may be the strength you need to pull through.
