Treatment Insights

At Oxford, your treatment won’t be one-size-fits all. We know that every person has a unique story and unique goals for recovery. You’ll receive a personalized treatment plan, created for you by our caring and qualified team, that will be tailored to your individual goals and needs. Our continuum of care will ensure that you’ll have every step of treatment you need. Whether you need medical detox, whether you’ll stay in a residential program or attend an intensive outpatient program, and whether you’ll move to a sober living facility after treatment, you’ll find a comprehensive program at Oxford. We offer a wide range of therapies and treatment modalities to help you achieve your goal of recovery. We capitalize on our scenic location near a national forest, and incorporate outdoor activates, such as hiking and horseback riding, into our therapies. 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 stay 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 stay at residential treatment, 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.

Areas of Focus
Family Program

Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Individualized Treatment

Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Alumni Testimonials
  • It's amazing. You show up and you're anxious and nervous and don't want to be here. But I knew I had to come and I was committed from day one. My use had increased, my drinking had increased, and I was aware of it. I knew I had been a social drinker, if you will, for many years... a highly functioning alcoholic. Things kind of unraveled a little bit. I had some personal losses with family that were very close to me and it came to a point I had some issues at work and part of it was certainly involved with the alcohol. I went home, called my wife, and said ‘I’m ready to go.’ One of the biggest things that I can't express enough is the fellowship here. So many people say, 'I’m not going to know anybody,' 'I'm nervous,' 'I'm not going to be able to talk to people.' The people that are here are just absolutely amazing. I've made better friends here than in the last 25 years. I wish I'd have done this 10 years ago. So many people try to do this on their own -- I had tried to do it on my own -- and end up seriously ill. [They] end up in the hospital with seizures… It was just paramount that I do it the right way. My doctor [and family] urged me, and I finally made the conscious decision that this is the only way to do it... for your long-term health and to not end up dead.

  • When I got clean life became more important again. My health became important again. I wanted to do more activities with my life. I wasn’t struggling anymore with waking up and trying to find a drug. I was waking up and wanting to achieve something each day. My life was in shambles before I got here. I’d hurt everyone in my life – the people closest to me, a family, I’d lost a job, I’d lost everything. I found myself in jail with no one and nothing. Recovery has brought me a new way of life. It’s brought me to a place in life where I never thought I could be or would get. I thought that I would need substances to enhance my life or to deal with things that I struggle with. Through the Oxford Center and through the 12-step program, it’s given me a stepping stone in life to become a better person and to be clean. I’ve come to a place that was structured, clean, peaceful, and away from the chaos that I was living – you know, the everyday life here is something that I was able to get used to very quickly. My thing was to not sit in a classroom all day. The activities here [I liked]. I was able to do the equine therapy, the ropes course, able to sit with my counselor and look over a lake. It was amazing. The peace and serenity of the grounds itself – I was quite excited about it. Where I was in my life, I was ready to get clean. So I was excited to be here but I didn’t know what this place had to offer when I first got here but I was willing to give it a try. Being able to know that someone was looking after me 24 hours a day, that I was going to get three meals a day and be fully taken care of… it was very comforting. And they did a great job at it. Recovery is possible for anyone that’s willing to do something different and wants something different in their life.
