Intervention for the Family-Addiction

An intervention is a caring and deliberate attempt by members of the family and loved ones to help the alcoholic or drug addicted person get help for his or her problem. Interventions are a structured and loving process organized and facilitated by a trained professional who guides a meeting between family members, friends and the prospective client.

The process is meant to show the prospective client in a loving and caring manner how their behavior is affecting the people that love them the most. An interventionist can help the prospective client understand the importance of changing his or her behavior and getting them into a treatment center.

Dual Diagnosis is our Focus at Oasis Treatment Center

A growing percentage of persons currently entering Alcohol/Chemical Dependence treatment facilities, are diagnosed with dual disorders. This challenges the client and the treatment facility to develop a plan in which all issues are addressed in the treatment experience. Here at Oasis we are a part of that solution.

Whether anxiety, depression, Bi Polar disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive disorder or other condition, we at Oasis believe that a total approach toward each individual provides the best opportunity for physical, emotional and spiritual recovery. Addressing only part of a problem means that a client leaves treatment with undressed issues, and relapse is more likely. For example, a person who completes 30 days and leaves treatment as a sober alcoholic but does not accept and address his depression is at high risk for relapse. Please visit our site or call us today for more information.

Learn More About Addiction at Oasis...


For most people who drink, alcohol is a pleasant accompaniment to social activities. Nonetheless, a large number of people get into serious trouble because of their drinking. Currently, nearly 14 million Americans—1 in every 13 adults—abuse alcohol or are alcoholic. Several million more adults engage in risky drinking that could lead to alcohol problems. These patterns include binge drinking and heavy drinking on a regular basis. In addition, 53 percent of men and women in the United States report that one or more of their close relatives have a drinking problem.

The consequences of alcohol misuse are serious—in many cases, life threatening. Heavy drinking can increase the risk for certain cancers, especially those of the liver, esophagus, throat, and larynx (voice box). Heavy drinking can also cause liver cirrhosis, immune system problems, brain damage, and harm to the fetus during pregnancy.In addition, drinking increases the risk of death from automobile crashes as well as recreational and on-the-job injuries. Furthermore, both homicides and suicides are more likely to be committed by persons who have been drinking.

Another Amazing Testimonial of Love & Healing at Oasis

July 21, 2010

Dearest Jim and ALL staff,

Nine months ago my mother can to you with absolutely no desire to live, no self worth, and a debilitating disease eating away at her soul. She was hesitant at first to complete even thirty days of treatment, but over the months something changed. She slowly began sounding more positive and in control. I knew the Oasis had to be doing something right.

The first time I came down South to visit my mom in treatment I was anxious to say the least. The last memory I had of her was in the hospital, incubated. Upon our arrival, my Grandmother and I were welcomed with hugs and the utmost hospitality. We were invited to some wonderful meetings and I was able to complete a process with my mom. Each visit we made after that held same warm welcome. And every time we came, my mom was happier and healthier.

Now, my mom is home and doing SO well! She has been adjusting to life with the most amazing attitude, and has that "Spirit" that my family and I missed SO much. Her hard work got her to this new place, but also the support from you and everyone at Oasis who care so much! I want to thank you from the deepest part of my heart for helping save my mothers life. I can't express how thankful I am to have her back. I hope you know how admirable you all are and that you touch lives... Thank you so very much... Hope my mom and I can come visit soon.

Oasis Treatment featured on Oprah

Oasis has been featured many times on A & Intervention, in addition to being featured on Oprah.

Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug. The powdered, hydrochloride salt form of cocaine can be snorted or dissolved in water and injected. Crack is cocaine that has not been neutralized by an acid to make the hydrochloride salt. This form of cocaine comes in a rock crystal that can be heated and its vapors smoked. The term “crack” refers to the crackling sound heard when it is heated.

Regardless of how cocaine is used or how frequently, a user can experience acute cardiovascular or cerebrovascular emergencies, such as a heart attack or stroke, which could result in sudden death. Cocaine-related deaths are often a result of cardiac arrest or seizure followed by respiratory arrest. For more information please visit our site.

Dear Jim,

Last night the process with Becky was a very powerful and exhilarating experience. I was afraid she was going to choose going home after only two weeks. I truly believe that the reason for her decision to stay for two more weeks was directly related to theLord working through you. I have never met a man so dedicated to his work and thus his patients/clients as you. It was truly a bit of Divine intervention when I called Mr. Mercer and he introduced me to you. You were quick to return my call, even though your plate must have been running over with all that you have to do coupled with getting ready for a well earned vacation.

Our telephone conversation was most enlightening and right to the point. Jim, there is no way I can thank you for all your efforts and the efforts of Lindley, David and the rest of your staff. They are superb, world class, over the top and besides that they are darn good. The Good Lord too inspires them.

I know there are no guarantees in this business, but at least Becky is not taking off the cast after 12 days. I am praying that God will continue to guide her during her recovery. We'll take it a day at a time.

I look forward to working with you and Becky as she progresses. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I now see a path to regaining a beautiful daughter. Feel free to share this with Becky and be sure to tell her I love her very much and I am very proud of her decision. We will take good care of her kids as she regains her health.

Thank you (this just doesn't adequately express my feeling towards you & your staff.)

Testimonials for Oasis Treatment Center | Orange County California

January 1, 2008

Dear Jim,

Happy New Year!!!!! As Jon and I were ringing in the New Year last night, we were reminiscing about 2007, counting our blessings and as always we remember that it was two years ago, New Year's Day that we escorted Kimmie to Oasis. I'll never forget how I felt that day- full of hope, relief, and gratitude that at the very least Kimmie would give treatment one more try. We were so impressed that you took the time on New Year's Day to come meet with us. Jon and I knew if we could get Kimmie to Oasis she'd have a fighting chance to get well. We could feel the warmth and love you and your staff had to offer even on tv!!!!

I am so happy and so very proud to tell you that Kimmie's doing so well, and in the next week will celebrate six months clean and sober!!! What a wonderful Christmas we enjoyed this year!!! Gone were the tears that came with hearing certain Christmas carols that reminded us of her this year we sang them together, we hoped for a "white christmas", instead of fearing that she may be cold, hungry, and alone, although we certainly prayed and remebered all who weren't as fortunate and blessed as we are. We will always believe you and Oasis are such a hugh part of her recovery. We just love and appreciate you and what you do so much Jim, you'll just never know. Although we don't see you often, we think of you and talk of you frequently and ALWAYS let people who are dealing with the disease of addiction that if they want to get well they need to do it right the very first time and go to Oasis. We will always feel gratitude and love for you and Oasis.

In addition to having Kimmie home alive and very well, we also have our beautiful grandchild Alivia, another little life that was cared for and helped along by Oasis! She's now almost two, and so perfect it's nothing short of one of God's miracles that we give so many thanks for!! She is so intelligent, so beautiful, really just an enchanting little creature whom we all love so much and are so very thankful for. What a gift!!! It really must feel extraordinary to know that you have helped so many people get well. I believe there are angels among us and many times when I look into my daughter's eyes, share a laugh or a hug with her, or pick up Alivia and put her on my lap to read her a story or just smell her hair I know that you must be one of them. Thank you...

We hope you and Kathy have a wonderful New Year filled with love, health, and beautiful memories!!!

With love and gratitude,

Keri & Jon F.
