Why Oasis?

Treatment for alcohol or drug use disorders typically involves a 28-day stay in a rehab program. These abstinence-based programs have helped many people recover but at best only 10-20% achieve long-term sobriety. Unfortunately, most relapse after leaving treatment. Clearly, we need a different treatment approach.

At Oasis, we get to know you as a unique individual and emphasize the aspects of treatment that are most critical to your success. We will help you identify potential stumbling blocks in your recovery, such as emotional barriers, trauma, relationship issues, physical health problems, pain, depression, or anxiety. Rather than using a cookie-cutter approach, we will design a program that meets your specific needs. 

What is Problematic Substance Use?

We believe that labels like “alcoholic” or “drug addict” are shamed-based terms that do nothing to help a person recover. We prefer the term problematic substance use, which focuses on the overall effect the substance is having on the person’s life. For instance, does the substance lead to improvements in physical and mental health, work life, and well-being, or does it lead to chaos, unmanageability, and consequences? If the later, then it is problematic for that person, regardless of whether it is caffeine, cannabis, or crack.

Harm Reduction

At Oasis, our mission is to deliver evidence-based high-quality care to those who need it most. We operate under the guiding principles of harm reduction, which seek to decrease negative consequences of alcohol or drug use without absolutely requiring abstinence. We recognize that not everyone wants to (or can) completely stop drinking or drugging. Even so, they can still make positive changes to reduce their use, improve their health, and protect themselves and others.

Tools for Healthy Living

Many of us have used alcohol or drugs as a primary coping mechanism for dealing with the stresses of life and to change how we feel. An important part of recovery is learning healthy ways to deal with these stressors and to manage our mood. These tools for healthy living help us to take charge of our own well-being and reduce or eliminate substance use. Examples include: relaxation and mindfulness techniques, breathwork, exercise, dealing with high-risk situations, activity scheduling, problem solving, dealing with thinking biases (CBT-based), and techniques such as urge surfing.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

When extra help is needed, we use a variety of medications to treat problematic substance use and increase the likelihood of success. Suboxone (buprenorphine / naloxone) is proven to save lives, stopping opioid use disorder in its tracks. Naltrexone can be a real game changer in reducing or eliminating problematic drinking. Ketamine-assisted treatment uses the neuroplastic and mood enhancing effects of ketamine to help clients change the brain circuits that drive addiction. Wellbutrin and Chantix greatly increase the likelihood of stopping smoking. NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) can help reduce withdrawal symptoms, alleviate drug cravings, boost energy levels, and improve mental clarity.

Outpatient Detox (Detox at Home)

We offer medically supervised detox from opioids, benzos, alcohol, or other substances in the privacy of your home. Our program is offered as an alternative for individuals considering hospital or residential treatment who prefer to stay in their home or for whom privacy is a concern. If you are struggling with substance dependence or unable to reduce your pain medication or anxiety medication on your own, we can help.

Support Group

Connecting With Others

Recovery self-help groups can be an essential component of recovery for many. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) are two well-known programs. However, AA and NA are not for everyone. There are a variety of self-help programs out there. We do not require you to participate in a group. If you want, we can help you find one that is just right for you!

Treating Trauma Reduces Relapse

Unresolved trauma is one of the most common reasons for recurrent relapse in addiction. Trauma-focused care is a powerful tool to help people work through their trauma and make pivotal changes that brings lasting recovery.

Alcohol or drugs are often used to cope with trauma stemming from adverse experiences in childhood or adulthood. Trauma is any experience that overwhelms our ability to cope. Common examples include physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, abandonment, betrayal, and unsafe and chaotic home life. For many, these adverse experiences lead to feelings of distrust and unworthiness, leaving them stuck in a perpetual fight or flight state. It is quite natural to want to use alcohol or drugs to cope with these difficult memories, though the relief is only temporary. Instead, when trauma is processed with the help of a skilled trauma professional, the need to drink or drug often goes away entirely or is at least dramatically reduced.
