Operated by American Addiction Centers, 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. After patients at Oxford Treatment Center have finished the first step of medical detoxification and stabilization, they transition into the Residential Treatment portion of the program. Separated from the substances that have controlled their lives and removed from the daily patterns that facilitated addiction, patients begin the hard, hopeful work of re-building their lives.
