Welcome from the CEO

Watching someone you love suffer is painful, and watching that loved one suffer while not knowing how to help feels intolerable. The first step for many with a loved one struggling in addiction or other mental health issues is to find appropriate treatment.

More frightening than skydiving, public speaking, or even dropping your 5-year-old off for kindergarten is asking a team of strangers to help your loved one’s suffering. At The Oaks at La Paloma, we approach each person’s treatment with the knowledge that our patient is also someone’s mother, father, son, daughter, brother, or sister. Every decision we make is made with that knowledge foremost in mind.

By treating people – not disorders – we can provide comprehensive care worthy of the trust you’ve placed in us, and help alleviate the pain for everyone involved.
