The facility is CARF-accredited and certified by the Joint Commission.

Treatment and Staff
Oasis Behavioral Health uses a wide range of treatment approaches in their Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). The treatment staff understands that all clients, based on their assessment, will respond better to different methods. In addition to CBT techniques, Oasis Behavioral Health staff incorporate the Living in Balance program to assist clients struggling with chemical dependency. This Hazelden track uses psychoeducation to help inform their clients of the addiction process, relapse prevention techniques and more.
Clients attend group therapy and individual therapy to work closer towards their recovery from active addiction. Groups are scheduled three times per week, while individual sessions are scheduled on an as-needed basis.
An executive team of Master’s-level practitioners oversee a team of CADCs. Counselors lead role-play exercises, workbook assignments and relaxation techniques during sessions. These sessions are dedicated to rebuilding each client after prolonged periods of addiction, with focus on a holistic level. Counselors help to develop daily living skills, coping skills and mindfulness in each client to the best of their ability.
The adolescent program is developed for youth between the ages of 11 and 17, and the adult program is for clients 18 and above. Each program is slightly varied to be relevant to the client age group.
