Long Term Recovery

Long term sober recovery requires a program designed for just that. At Oasis Treatment Center, we have been helping people recover for over 23 years and then follow up with our clients to help encourage a strong aftercare program. Oasis Treatment Center in Orange County California.

There is a better way to live. Addictions are an outgrowth of unhealthy choices and habits. Hope based on the realistic expectation that someone can and will change is a powerful and positive motivating force. We can build bridges across the span of our lives in many ways. At the Oasis Treatment Center, we demonstrate the basics of helping people identify and cope with the symptoms of their “dis-ease”. We educate our clients on post acute withdrawal and the dynamics of the detoxification process. We encourage healthy lifestyle habits to replace old behavioral patterns while directing our clients toward spirituality, open communication, and 12 step community support.

We value one on one counseling in order to assist them in identifying character flaws that could lead them back to active use. Individual treatment plans are prepared by licensed clinicians who have themselves overcome the grip of addiction. In order to fully address the dynamics of individual issues, we encourage family participation with the realization that they have been effected by the disease and deserve the education, group therapy, and support to ensure the healing process.

“Many people pray to overcome the will of a reluctant Higher Power, instead of taking hold of the willingness of a loving Higher Power”, for it is wise to pray for the future, but not to worry about it. We can’t live it until it becomes the present. The depth of our anxiety measures the distance we are from the truth. Sometimes we go along with things, not because we really want to, but because we don’t know what else to do. The insanity takes over, and no one has the wisdom or the courage to make the call. Remember, Change is going to be there whether we like it or not. If not now, when?
