Located just outside of Houston in Egypt, Texas is the Great Oaks Recover Center, which offers detox and residential substance abuse treatment for men and women. The comprehensive facility offers individual and group therapy and dual diagnosis care that incorporates elements of CBT and the 12 steps, as well as some holistic methods.
Accommodations and Food
The living quarters of Great Oaks is a large farmhouse on 50 acres of land that is just under an hour away from Houston. The home holds up to 32 clients at a time in semi-private rooms with half baths in each, The spacious and modern home, which houses the men and women in separate wings, is quiet and serene, allowing for clients to unplug and focus on recovery while enjoying the beautiful landscape. The brightly decorated home is furnished with two large living rooms with plush couches in front of a flat screen HD TV, a fireplace and state of the art kitchen with stainless steel appliances. All food is provided by the facility and prepared by an on site chef. All meals and snacks are fresh and use organic options when possible, and the men and women clients dine together.
Treatment and Staff
Great Oaks staff takes a thorough assessment of each client coming to the facility for treatment and determines whether or not a five to seven day on-site detox is necessary. The detox ward can accommodate up to five clients at a time, and it’s monitored 24 hours a day by the medical director and LPN. During this stage every client is assigned an individual therapist who helps the client get acclimated to the facility and ease him or her into the recovery process.
Once an individual begins the residential stage of treatment, they participate in several group sessions per week that cover the 12 steps, Big Book study, relapse prevention and psychoeducational groups. There are some groups that are gender specific and some that are co-ed, but everything is tailored to suit the client in the most productive way possible. There are specialty groups offered for clients who have a dual diagnosis or have relapsed several times, as well as integrating nutrition and exercise into every day programming. Throughout their time at Great Oaks, clients and staff work together to design an aftercare plan, which may include continuing on at the facility and participating in a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for an additional 30 days.
There are areas of the facility that are designated for clients who smoke, but smoking is not allowed anywhere near the detox or residential facilities. Clients have to wait for seven days before making phone calls, and cell phones and laptops aren’t permitted while in treatment.
There is an enclosed patio with covered benches and tables where clients can relax on days off of programming, a wellness center with fitness machines and a pool with deck chairs. There are recreational activities offered on almost a daily basis that may include yoga, football, or volleyball, as well as barbecues and movie nights.
There is a weekly family program offered at Great Oaks where clients and their family members can participate in group or individual therapy sessions.
Great Oaks Recovery invites their clients to unplug and break some unhealthy habits while enjoying the peace and quiet of their serene surroundings. Though the initial program generally lasts 30 days to two months, they offer continued support and resources for continued healing for the long term.
