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 time with us 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 time with us, 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.
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.
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.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Oxford Treatment Center remains open and committed to providing critical addiction treatment amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.

According to a 2017 SAMHSA survey, 32.6 percent of rehabs in Mississippi provide IOP while 19.1 percent provide PHP.
These outpatient services may serve as either an entry into treatment or as step-down aftercare for graduates of Oxford Treatment Center’s residential program in Etta. The outpatient center is located on the Resolutions Oxford campus, which also includes a sober living home. Oxford Treatment Center is owned and operated by American Addiction Centers.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Oxford Treatment Center’s outpatient program blends evidence-based treatment modalities with 12-step participation. Clients meet three times a week, and while the length of the program may vary depending on client needs, the average length of the program is 10 weeks.
Core programming includes group counseling sessions and educational classes, which address issues such as coping skills, trigger avoidance, and relapse prevention. In addition, clients participate in one-on-one therapy, and family counseling is also highly encouraged. If applicable, an in-house medical staff is available to treat common co-occurring mental health issues associated with addiction, such as anxiety and depression.
The Oxford IOP Center also offers free group therapy weekly for anyone who has ever had a loved one experience addiction or recovery.

J.P.I enjoyed my time there and i feel like i really grew as a person in the period of time i spent there
ACHMy son is currently there for the 3rd time. We have now figured out why he likes it so much. They let him take naps, have his cell phone 24/7 and sneak and have sex with girls. He refuses condoms and already has 1 child he doesn't take care of. He jokes about the therapy offered there. So basically this is a camp. I'm calling my insurance company first thing in the morning to report this. I've reached out to thousands of parents in a group asking if they've ever heard of a "rehab" run like this and they're telling me to get him out immediately. This is NOT a rehab. It's a camp!
P.A.From my time there, there were a good number of effective treatments/classes and lessons to be learned. However, many needs for patients aren't met and the entire facility, both residential and Resolutions are very unorganized. A good example is when I was to be ready by 7PM to get my ride to the train station in Memphis and when the time came, after all the staff had left, nobody knew about my ride and had to be scrambled at the very last minute, risking me be late to my train. They also have refused to help me get approved for my short term disability during and after my stay, all my insurance needs is a simple fax of my medical information but apparently that is too hard to do. I've contacted everyone from my therapist to the business office and case manager to the doctor (who I've never met)and I either get ignored, told it'll be done, or just get excuses. Not once have they taken the time to even look up my name whenever I'm on the phone. They want to teach me to put my trust into others, but I lost six weeks of pay because I put my trust into them. Strengths: Good activities, good therapist, nice area. Weaknesses: Anything regarding money, organization, and depending on the person, perception of the clients.
R.H.I was in another treatment Facility prior to OTC and the difference was glaring. I was treated by the staff with respect and the teachings were very helpful to my recovery. Thorough treatment facility. They didn't have the horses that they now have. LOL
RhondaNo communication at all. Could never get anyone to return calls. Very mean horrible. I would not send my dog there ever!!!!!!
J.B.Very poor supervision!! Had a bad experience. The staff failed to protect my daughter then had the audacity to kick her out! Gave me less than 24 hours to fly her home and find another facility.
M.J.Resolutions Oxford changed my life. The staff treated us fairly, respectfully and like family! I hated to leave them all but plan to always keep my place as Alumni & keep in touch with everyone. I'll never forget everything Oxford and AAC has done for me & my life
A.J.My loved one was worse after leaving the facility.
C.S.Good treatment and accomodations.
J.C.My nephew was assigned an inexperienced counselor. This was his third threat meant experience. He was in residential, outpatient then sober living for over a year. He dies from an over does a few days after he left a recommended sober living establishment. There was no real treatment for mental health despite Oxfords designation as a dual diagnosis facility.
AnonymousReally? Think twice before sending a loved one here or deciding to sign yourself in. Our loved one has been getting the worst treatment ever.
AnonymousGood facility, treatment could be longer. Friendly staff ad counselors. Small, short term, and not much extra curricular activity options.
ABI am very mixed about this center. I have a loved on who went to this treatment center and has been sober for 6 months. My problem is he never came home. He went to the aftercare and feels he can’t leave. I feel they encouraged him to stay there because he did so well in treatment. He has a wife and I don’t think they ever counseled him to return to his real life. The communication for family was terrible. I would not recommend this place to people needing treatment. I instead would suggest they research places and counselors that work with patients and families. The treatment has been harder for the family in many ways than the addiction. He has left everyone behind and lives in a bubble.
CassidyStaff is amazing, I knew I was meant to come to this facility the moment I arrived
TinaWent to the one in olive branch it was a joke was the only one in the class they just wanted my pay did nothing for me but waste my time

AnonymousAnytime I tried to call to talk to her or at least find out how to address a envelope to her they would hang up on me.
