Etta center transforms for greater impact

Changes, additions ongoing at residential campus 

From freshly paved roads, to a new kitchen and dining room, Oxford Treatment Center's main campus is growing to better serve patients and their families. The center opened 24 new beds in its residential program this fall. Its medical detox program will also be expanding with the completion of a new medical services building in early 2017.

At the same time, a new outpatient office and 48-bed sober living campus will be complete in spring 2017 just south of Oxford. “Our goal in all these projects is to give people the best possible start for lifelong recovery,” said Billy Young, co-founder and CEO of Oxford Treatment Center.

The Etta campus can now host as many as 100 patients. Oxford Treatment Center's Family Program, which moved to the residential campus from the Oxford Outpatient Office earlier this year, brings an additional 15 to 25 people to the campus each weekend.

New 12-Step Walk offers therapeutic tool

Among the most well-received addition to campus in 2016 has been the new 12-Step Walk designed by landscaper Bill Hewitt of Franklin, Tenn. Patients and clinicians alike have used the new installation often for group and individual therapy work, as well as for personal reflection time. While 12-step walks are a common feature on addiction treatment campuses, Hewitt sought a new level of meaning as he applied an artist's approach to the design.
