Treatment Approach

Evidence-Based Treatment

At Oxford Treatment Center, we offer personalized, evidence-based addiction treatment. Our therapeutic program is backed by scientific research and adheres to the strictest best practices in the field.

Our decisions and approaches to addiction treatment have been guided by decades of research and data. Anyone coming to our facility can rest easy knowing that our evidence-based services are scientifically sound.

Treatment Modalities and Specialized Groups

We offer a wide range of therapies and treatment modalities including but not limited to cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behavior therapy.

We also incorporate outdoor activities such as hiking and horseback riding into our therapies as well as alternative approaches such as art, yoga and music therapy. Specialized programs are also available for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (or questioning identities) community.


At Oxford Treatment Center residential campus, housing is gender-specific and we work to house clients with other individuals in their age range. Clients live in cabins with 11 other people, and sleep in semi-private 2-bedroom accommodations with private bathrooms.

Cabins come with a TV and lounge where residents can catch-up with their peers and relax.

For Families


If the patient consents, family and loved ones can be contacted by therapists in order to keep them updated on the patient's progress and provide addiction education opportunities. Every other weekend from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fridays and Saturday, Oxford hosts family programming which must be approved by a patient's counselor before visitation.

Visiting Your Loved One

All visits must be pre-approved by the treatment team and visits occur each Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Only once a patient has completed detox or been at the facility for at least 72 hours, are visits permitted.
