ABOUT OAKDALE RECOVERY CENTER

Located in Canton, Mich., halfway between Detroit and Ann Arbor, Oakdale Recovery Center is a private for-profit rehab facility, one of the 162 facilities in Michigan. The facility offers a full continuum of treatment services for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders, including detox, short-term residential, partial hospitalization programs (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and outpatient programs.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Many of Oakdale Recovery Center’s clients begin their treatment process in the detox program. Clients stay in detox for up to five daysand complete a rapid detox process. During detox, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) may be provided to help clients minimize withdrawal symptoms. Once detox is complete, many clients move into the residential program.

A short-term residential program is designed to quickly establish sober living habits before moving to a less-structured form of treatment. Clients are monitored at all times and have access to the medical and psychiatric staff members.

The outpatient programs offer a semi-structured environment where clients begin to use their sober living skills outside of the treatment facility. Transportation services are offered to ensure that clients attend services, which is available in roughly 43% of nationwide facilities.

Treatment is based on the 12-step model of recovery, and all levels of care include individual, group, and family counseling. Clients work with case managers to develop individualized treatment plans and assessments. Medication management and psychiatric assessments are available when needed, and clients participate in aftercare planning near the end of the treatment process.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The treatment team at Oakdale Recovery Center includes certified advanced alcohol and drug counselors (CAADCs), licensed professional counselors (LPCs), and master’s level social workers. The facility is one of the 28% of facilities across the country that are CARF accredited, and it is licensed by the State of Michigan.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing, alumni reviews for Oakdale Recovery Center were mixed. Of the 11 former clients surveyed by Best-rehabs.com, four reported positive feedback, four negative, and three mediocre.

The reviews are polarized about the quality of the accommodations. The three mixed reviews took issue with lack of amenities. “If you want recovery it (is) a decent facility,” alum K.G. noted. “Many people there were court ordered and did not want recovery. Intensive outpatient treatment and one on one were better than the inpatient program.”

The four negative reviews focused on dirty facilities, egregious food, and subpar treatment. “It was a horrible nightmare,” former client Kenyotta wrote. “It was filthy, food horrible, totally unprofessional all the way round. It was so bad I had a panic attack.” However, another alum wrote: “The facility was not a country club atmosphere which wasn’t a problem.”

Some alumni gave praise for the facility’s solid, helpful treatment, despite its no-frills environment. Part of this stems from its available counseling options, which most alumni thought was just average. In general, alumni believe that there were not enough holistic treatment options offered by the facility. However, the alumni polled on the matter did offer higher ratings for the staff’s level of training and experience.

  • I just checked myself out of this program only after 26hours. 2 out of the many staff members were for helping. All the rest didnt care.foods complete garbage. Ocj is better if that says much. Worst place ive ever been. Would not go if i didnt have to.
    It was a horrible nightmare. Not a good place for recovery. It was filthy, food horrible, totally unprofessional all the way round. It was so bad I had a panic attack. All of the staff except the counselors or therapists were previous recoverers. They had bed bugs. The carpet look like it was 50 years old. Thank god for my sobriety!!!!! I would never recommend this dump to anyone.

  • Very strong counseling and therapy programs. Limited medical information and understanding. During my second visit I was allowed to stay an extended period per my request and as of May 29th, I will have 3 years sober and have never looked back.

  • the best thing that oakdale did for me was to give me time to detox and start life again as a sober person. oakdale has more weaknesses than i could even name, to be honest. if a person who goes to rehab there doesn't WANT to get sober, or isn't sure if they want to, this facility will not e a catalyst for sobriety. this facility feels like a combination of jail (i've never been in jail), high school, and summer camp. the efforts to treat mental health and addition concurrently consist of reading packets of reprinted information in a group setting. there were several times during my stay that violence became an issue.

  • The facility was not a country club atmosphere which wasn't a problem. I was used to homelessness and detroit streets, what it was was a very clean and very attentive facility with my whole stay there being regimented and filled with positive influence. Saved my life. Saved me from myself. It was sanctuary.
