Treatment Insights

The primary mission of Alpha Oaks is to provide comprehensive alcohol and substance abuse treatment to women struggling with chemical dependency issues. The residential rehab understands that women alcoholics and addicts often have unique histories of abuse and trauma, and fosters a safe and nurturing environment for working through these sensitive issues. By living together and sharing the experience of recovery, women learn how to form healthy relationships, cooperate with and support their peers, and develop the coping skills and daily practices necessary to stay clean and sober.

Areas of Focus
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.


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.

    I have had the privilege of being part of the team at ARPW since 1994. I am an alumni of Alpha Oaks and have served on the Board of Directors of California Association of Addiction Recovery Resources. The bonuses in my job are the successes of the women. I feel I am only as good as my staff and that I need to assure and maintain our facilities to help those women in need. It is important that staff and myself are role models.

    In the late 1980's, getting sober on my own was not do-able for me. Alpha Oaks allowed me the physical and emotional safety to find my soul, to find my God. Through the lessons of Alpha Oaks I was able to learn how to return to being a productive part of society. Now I have the opportunity to help in providing that kind of opportunity to other women in need. I am grateful to be able to do so.
