Frequently Asked Questions
What is the average length of stay? While treatment is individualized, most residents are at the facility between 3-6 weeks.
Are intervention services available? For families who believe an intervention will be necessary in order to get a loved one into treatment, arrangements can be made to provide that service directly or a referral will be made to an intervention specialist in the desired geographic area. An intervention specialist is available through the Oasis to discuss this option. If an intervention is to be facilitated by the Oasis staff, the interventionist will talk to each person involved in the intervention, schedule a time and place for the intervention and make arrangements for the patient to be admitted to treatment immediately following the intervention.
How does treatment progress?
Generally, there are three phases of treatment at the Oasis Renewal Center.
Level 1: This 1-2 week phase is designed to identify and assess areas of concern, while establishing a routine to promote physical and mental stabilization. Structure is emphasized during this phase of self-exploration with a goal of gaining a greater level of self-awareness and understanding. Professional staff assists in the development of a plan for attaining the desired goals of the individual in treatment.
This 1-2 week level of care is designed to provide knowledge and develop skills for managing the addictive disorder. An emphasis is placed on spirituality and the practical steps involved in living drug/alcohol free.
Level 3: This 1-2 week level of care focuses on stabilization and finalizing a workable plan as developed by the individual in treatment with assistance from the counselor for maintaining and managing recovery once the person transitions back into a less nurturing environment.
What if detoxification is needed? Medical stability is a criterion for admission to the Oasis however staff at the Oasis will assist in arranging detoxification services with a local hospital if needed.
What if I'm on prescribed medication? For all medication, confirmation is required that the prescribing physician is aware of the substance use disorder. The Oasis Renewal Center Medical Director meets with each person during the initial phase of treatment to review medication. The Oasis "monitors" but does not "administer" medication. All medication will be locked in a secured place and may be taken as prescribed and observed by a member of the staff.
What about privacy?
With over 48 acres, the Oasis provides a remote, quiet atmosphere, away from normal daily intrusions. Cell phone and e-mail communication is limited to encourage a focus on recovery. The Oasis staff is highly trained on federal confidentiality laws and ethics. Privacy is discussed at admission with individuals and their families.
What is available for meals? Menus are developed by a licensed nutritionist with preparation under the supervision of a chef. Individuals select their preferences for meals in advance. Special dietary requirements can usually be accommodated.
