The Oaks at La Paloma practices the award-winning Foundations Recovery Network model of treatment, extensively tested and proven through multiple federally-funded research studies. We combine evidence-based addiction treatment with innovative therapies for emotional and mental health to effectively address co-occurring disorders. Our treatment success rates are double the national average success rate for maintaining sobriety one year post-treatment, compared to traditional programs. We accept most insurance plans, and our self-pay arrangements are very affordable.

Co-occurring Disorders

Co-occurring disorders affect more than 10 million Americans each year and describe a condition where a person is affected by both chemical dependency and an emotional or psychiatric issue ranging from depression or bipolar disorder to PTSD or anxiety. The Oaks’ Program for Co-occurring Disorders addresses both through an integrated treatment model, which provides the best opportunity for lasting recovery.

We view our relationship as a partnership with our patients.

Our treatment philosophy is based on motivational interviewing (MI) and a stages-of-change approach. Sessions include both specialty and process groups, which address everything from life skills and stress management to relapse prevention and peer support. And we offer morning and evening programs to best meet your needs.

Please call our 24-hour, toll-free helpline, and let us help you begin your sobriety journey.
