Outpatient campus taking shape

New Oxford Outpatient Office, Sober Living homes to debut this spring 

A new campus dedicated to outpatient services will improve support for people in early recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.

Oxford Treatment Center is preparing to open a new 12,000-square-foot outpatient office in Oxford, about 16 miles from the residential center. Four new adjacent sober living homes will allow people who have completed residential treatment to practice a new sober lifestyle in a structured, supportive community. Accountability measures include therapist supervision, daily meetings and drug screenings.

The new outpatient campus will replace and expand the services provided at the existing Oxford Outpatient Office and off-site sober living homes.

Continuum of care: Why the next steps matter

Q&A with Clinical Therapist Amy Winn, CADC

Finding long-term recovery takes more than desire. It takes will and willingness.

That's what Clinical Therapist Amy Winn hopes to see in people by the end of a 30-day stay in residential treatment.

"We look for willingness to stay the course with their aftercare plan, to get involved in a recovery program and willingness to replace unhealthy relationships with healthy relationships," she says.

"How you feel about making changes isn’t really that important in the beginning of the recovery process. Doing it is the most important thing."

“We’d go to two meetings a day, three meetings a day. It was uncomfortable, and sometimes it was inconvenient. But I did it anyway.”
