ABOUT OASIS TREATMENT CENTER
Founded in 1988 as a residential rehab in Anaheim, Calif., Oasis Treatment Center now provides long-term sober living services for adults. The center emphasizes spirituality in recovery, and dual diagnosis treatment can be arranged through the supportive home.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the Oasis Treatment Center website, clients are required to complete a 30-day residential treatment program prior to admission. Medical, psychiatric, and psychological assessments are applied in individualized programs, and stays range from 30 days to two years, depending on each client’s needs.
The sober living program prioritizes accountability and peer support. Multiple group sessions are held at the main house, including weekly “fireside meetings,” which alumni and current residents attend around an outside fire pit. In addition to 12-step meetings and relapse prevention groups, residents are encouraged to continue participation in individual and family counseling. While at Oasis, clients typically work or attend school in the area.
The owner of Oasis Treatment Center in Anaheim, at the time of this writing, has been in recovery for more than 30 years. Most other staff members are also in recovery, including certified chemical dependency counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The main Oasis Treatment Center facility is a renovated, more than 100-year-old house set on lush grounds with palm trees, flowers, a vegetable garden, and fountains. The center also has an outdoor swimming pool and exercise equipment. Private and shared bedrooms are available.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Most of the feedback from former clients for Anaheim’s Oasis Treatment Center at the time of this writing refers to services offered during the facility’s previous residential program, while a few alumni reviewed sober living services.
Two of the three alumni polled to date by Rehabs.com on the sober living facility rated treatment effectiveness three out of five stars, while the third awarded five stars. The three alumni approved of the staff’s level of training and experience, meals and nutrition, and the facility's cleanliness, offering high four- and five-star ratings for these survey metrics. Each also highlighted the facility’s support for family involvement as a strength.
Data from the two more moderate reviewers, polled extensively, indicated 12-step programming was central to the center’s approach, though options in counseling modalities were limited. They granted one and three stars, respectively, for affordability. One alum cited “the staff” as a strength, but the owner as a weakness, which was echoed on three other third-party sites as well.
On Google, five individuals granted perfect five-star ratings for Oasis and two gave just one star apiece. One critical reviewer wrote: “Not a good facility for rehab.” Countering this was repeated praise for an empathetic and experienced staff, successful life changes, and the owner’s straightforward manner in confronting clients’ weaknesses. “Their program taught me how to be an adult,” W.H. wrote in a representative review of the sober living program.
Three CiteHealth reviews for Oasis were split two-to-one, highly critical-to-favorable. One expressed concerns about repetitive treatment practices, and the cost (of a full rehab program). Another highlighted “the love, education, positive energy” received, in contrast with another alum who described the facility’s “catholic/buddhist ideology” as “crammed down your throat.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The sole loved one polled by Rehabs.com expressed dissatisfaction with the “loose, ill directed” transitional program at Oasis Treatment Center. They echoed alumni trends in positive ratings for meals, maintenance, and family involvement. They gave three stars for the facility's affordability.
CiteHealth and Yelp reviews from parents included three favorable and four negative. The latter characterized the owner as insensitive to clients and the program as expensive. Others praised the staff for honesty and strictness.
Oasis Treatment Center lists the cost of its sober living program in Anaheim as $500 per month.
Oasis Treatment Center has been featured in several media outlets, including episodes of the TV show Intervention, local news stories, and national talk shows. This coverage was of the center’s initial treatment program, which the website and Facebook page indicate has been discontinued since 2013.
