Great staff working together to assist the patients. Employees care about patients. A downfall of the facility was the easy access to the outside world.

A benefit was the ease of contained psychiatrist. However, they need better follow-up on patients. Overall, it was a great facility.

Had the opportunity to visit in May 2015, after the renovations. Love the new courtyard and the fire pit!

While the quality of care was above average the facility could definitely use some work. Also...I would be very hesitant to trust them with my private information.

This facility is a farce. The staff is poorly trained and the daily classes/workshops have unskilled facilitators. Counselors meet infrequently with clients and meetings with the psychiatrist who moni...


Areas of Focus
Intensive Family Program

Individuals receiving treatment are encouraged to invite loved ones to participate in the La Paloma Intensive Family Program, during which time family members are provided comprehensive addiction education, counseling, group work, and more. While the Intensive Family Program takes place over the course of one weekend, The Oaks provides a number of opportunities for clients to work on family related issues.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a therapeutic technique used to address the inner thoughts that drive an individual’s behavioral patterns and actions. By addressing pre-existing thought patterns, individuals work to alter unhealthy behaviors and achieve lasting sobriety.
