Operated by American Addiction Centers and set in a remote, lakeside setting in Etta, Miss., Oxford Treatment Center provides services for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Although the Etta-based facility specializes in providing medically-supervised detox and residential treatment, an additional center in Oxford offers a partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), standard outpatient (OP) treatment, and continuing care.
According to its website, the facility guarantees a complimentary 30-day stay to any client who relapses after completing 90 days of treatment. In Mississippi, Oxford Treatment Center is only one of eight substance abuse treatment facilities that provides residential detoxification in a non-hospital setting and one of 22 offering long-term (30+ days) of residential, non-hospital long-term care.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Often clients begin treatment at the facility with medically managed detox. During this process, participants receive 24-hour supervision and medication to ease the symptoms of withdrawal. Once stabilized, they transition to residential treatment, which is based on 12-step principles and includes individual, group, and family therapy.
According to the website, most clients meet with a psychologist or psychiatrist at least twice a week. In the evenings, residents attend 12-step meetings. They also engage in a range of holistic, experiential, and alternative treatment modalities, including art and music therapy, equine therapy, and wilderness education.
At the conclusion of treatment, clients receive an aftercare plan, which may include additional treatment through Oxford’s PHP, IOP, and OP.
Within the state, Oxford Treatment Center is only one of 14 substance abuse treatment facilities accredited by The Joint Commission and only one of 14 that bears the seal of approval by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). According to its website, the treatment staff includes physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers, and counselors.
