Oxford Treatment Center Philosophy
Oxford Treatment Center adheres to a philosophy that addresses the mind, body, and spirit. They are committed to investing in the whole person, because finding new ways to experience and enjoy life is key to sustaining recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
The Oxford treatment program is structured to include a rich range of experiential therapies in which each patient will take part. These aspects of the program are designed to help patients process the thoughts and feelings they will experience during their time in treatment. These sessions also build hope for the future, affirming that a life free from drugs and alcohol can include surprising new dimensions.
Located near Memphis in DeSoto County, Mississippi, the Olive Branch Outpatient Office hosts an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). This 10-week, part-time treatment program can serve as an alternative or follow-up to residential treatment for substance abuse disorders.
Areas of Specialization
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
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.
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.
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
