Substance Abuse Programs

The residential treatment center at West Oaks Hospital offers adults the tools to build a solid foundation for recovery. We utilize the concepts of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and the 12 Step program to teach relapse prevention and coping skills to patients

Following the residential program, patients can utilize what they’ve learned to continue their recovery through our outpatient substance abuse treatment centers.

Acute detoxification offers 24-hour, medically managed detoxification with emphasis on stabilization and assessment of needs. This program is suited for those with a dependence on a substance who require medical supervision when stopping use. Acute detox at West Oaks can be the first step into recovery. 

Drug rehabilitation offers a 24-hour, medically supervised, structured environment to further the detox and stabilization process for those struggling to quit using substances. This process can be used with or independently of acute detoxification, and followed up by one of our residential or outpatient programs. 

Outpatient Facilities 

The outpatient facilities at our substance abuse treatment center are designed to offer a comprehensive range of services to our patients. In addition to providing psychiatric services, our centers also utilize a treatment model that is rooted in social learning and positive reinforcement techniques. This approach is tailored to encourage positive behaviors and foster personal growth in our patients. Furthermore, our centers prioritize teaching essential life skills and coping mechanisms to help individuals successfully navigate the challenges of addiction recovery. By equipping our patients with the tools they need to thrive during and after their treatment, we aim to support their long-term well-being and overall success in their recovery journey.

Program for Women 

Our substance abuse treatment center also offers a program designed specifically for the challenges experienced by women going through substance abuse. Women struggling with substance abuse can face unique challenges during recovery. Many women in active substance abuse, or recovery, may struggle to feel safe in integrated spaces, even if they are being monitored. This is why we offer women-specific programming, to create a welcoming, truly safe feeling space for all at West Oaks. Within our women’s group programming, we utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and expressive therapeutic activities such as mindfulness, art, music and yoga. Our trauma-focused treatment approach focuses on brief intervention and solution-focused therapies.
