    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.
  • Individual Therapy

    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.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Clay Crossing of Maud, Okla., is a faith-based residential treatment center dedicated to helping adult men in southeastern Oklahoma struggling with substance use (SUD) and co-occurring mental health disorders. Located on over 400 acres of quiet, rural southeastern Oklahoma, the residential center runs one of just 107 (56.0 percent of) programs in the state that’s dedicated exclusively to adult men as well as one of just 39 (20.4 percent of) that extends beyond 30 days.


Residential treatment services at Clay Crossing are available at intervals of 30, 60, and 90 days. At first, programming works by helping men identify their personal needs and explore underlying factors that may be contributing towards addiction and other unhealthy patterns of behavior. Throughout their stay, be it 30, 60, or 90 days, men focus on developing new skills, hobbies, and ways of spending their free time. Treatment is also equipped to help men facing trauma or co-occurring disorders such as depression and anxiety.

Programming has multiple goals to it: days are structured and focused on leisure time, relaxation, and building healthy relationships. Spiritual growth, another goal, is encouraged through practices such as reflection, emotional management, and building a connection “with God through Christian principles."

Men start their days with a healthy breakfast and reflection time before continuing with individual counseling, small process groups, support meetings, and recreational activities. Those in need have access to case management assistance for matters related to physical health, criminal courts, and setting up aftercare. The center encourages loved one’s participation in educational and counseling throughout family weekend visitations.

Alumni who’ve completed 90 days of treatment are invited to return for 30 days of relapse prevention programming free of charge. After a year of sobriety, men are invited to get their silver belt buckle (also known as “The Buckle”) and celebrate their continuous sobriety and commitment to recovery.


Counselors at Clay Crossing employ holistic counseling practices, however, few further details are provided by the center on its treatment staff.


Clay Crossing is set across more than 400 acres of property that ranges from “heavily forested” to “native grass plains,” following in its belief that treatment “should be away from the chaos and demands of the city and everyday life.”

Features of the large property include a network of walking trails and several fishing ponds as well as weight rooms and living rooms with large TVs.


By and large, former clients expressed a sense of gratitude and appreciation for their time here. Many highlighted the counselors, described collectively as caring, competent, and educated. “Clay Crossing was life saver for me!” wrote D.L., one of several program alumni who awarded the facility five out of five stars for treatment effectiveness. “They really welcomed me and helped me to understand what I needed to do to live a sober life.”

Secondary sources to date reveal similar levels of satisfaction amongst former clients. Clay Crossing has excellent average ratings of 4.7 and 4.1 out of five stars, respectively, based on 15 Google reviews and 29 Facebook reviews.[1][2]


Feedback amongst families and friends was also positive. Siblings, parents, and friends thanked the “friendly and willing” staff for helping their loved ones get in touch with their feelings and follow advice given to them. “I'd recommend them to anyone that is serious about getting their life back together,” Bill, one of several grateful parents polled by Rehabs.com. “You have to wok at it and follow their counsel and if you do, it works.”

“The counselors are great and the family counseling they offer helped us so much,” wrote the spouse of a client in the single Yelp review to date. “The staff was always so nice and helpful whenever I called or came for a visit.”[3]
