Oasis Addiction Counseling

ABOUT OASIS ADDICTION COUNSELING

Located in a low-key roadside building in Prescott, Ariz.—the town one local paper called the ”rehab capital of the west.”—Oasis Addiction Counseling offers an intensive outpatient (IOP) program, which it strongly recommends following in conjunction with placement in a sober living facility. Oasis has close working relationships with several such facilities in the vicinity, and is keen to provide referrals. Medical detox is not available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Each new client is assessed and given an individualized treatment plan within 72 hours. If Oasis cannot provide the level of care a client needs, the client is referred to another treatment provider at this stage.

Treatment modalities include an introduction to the 12-Steps; group therapy; psychoeduation on the nature of addiction and recovery; classes in anger management, life skills, and codependency; education on preventing relapse, and a vaguely defined holistic program.

Residents are also given support in tackling any legal issues that arose during their period of addiction, and generally work to achieve individually-set treatment goals and objectives. Life-skills work includes help with résumés and budgeting advice. Clients choose from either morning or evening groups, and attend programming every day. While on the program, all clients must agree to comply with random weekly drug testing.

The advantage of following an IOP program while living in a sober facility, the management says, is that the arrangement allows clients to continue to operate in the real world while receiving treatment, daily putting their new education and skills to the test. Graduating clients are encouraged to join the aftercare program, which consists of several meetings a week plus random drug testing for three to four months.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The clinical staff is headed by a licensed chemical dependency counselor. His five staff counselors offer extensive experience in the form of long personal sobriety, though most of them are not certified addictions counselors or social workers. There’s no physician on staff.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Though Oasis Addiction Services provides outpatient care only, it has relationships with four men’s and two women’s sober living homes in the area, all of which have live-in staff members.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

No detailed review coverage is available, though eight alumni have awarded the facility five-star reviews on Facebook.

FINANCING

The facility’s website indicates that some insurance policies are accepted.

  • I thought they did a great job keeping my relative motivated and giving him hope to beat his alcohol addiction. Every time I visited him he was in good spirits and eventually beat the disease of alcoholism. I thought they could offer a few more constructive programs to keep him busy like arts and crafts types of programs. I thought that for the most part they did a great job of helping my relative beat the addiction of alcohol. He was in good spirits every time I visited which was fairly often and I thought they kept his attention for the most part.
