About Us

Blue Door Recording Studio

When you’re in a city steeped in music history, it’s only natural to include music in your programming. Memphis is the home of Elvis Presley and Sun Studios, among others. The blues originated here, and Beale Street remains an attraction for music-minded visitors. Playing music can be very therapeutic, and our music program emphasizes healing through creative expression.

The Oaks at La Paloma Has Moved

Our Memphis-based residential treatment center, The Oaks at La Paloma, has relocated, effective April 1, 2020, to the Lakeside Behavioral Health System campus in Memphis, TN. The program will now be referred to as The Oaks at Lakeside.

Not only is Lakeside BHS a sister facility, and a well-known pillar in the Memphis community, they also have a beautiful 37-acre campus that features a 345-bed facility designed to make recovery an accessible, effective reality in the lives of our patients.

Our Memphis-based intensive outpatient program, Foundations Memphis will remain at its current location in East Memphis, while affiliated as a program of Lakeside BHS.

With this consolidation, we will offer a full continuum of patient care – including acute care, detox, residential treatment, and outpatient programs – and together be a more complete resource to the community.

It has been our privilege to serve the Memphis community for the past 15 years, and we look forward to continuing to do so in our new home at Lakeside! To find out more about The Oaks at Lakeside’s residential and outpatient treatment programs, call us at 901-350-4575.
