Located in tiny city of Gassville, Arkansas, OMART Inc (which stands for Ozark Mountain Alcohol Residential Treatment) is an affordable inpatient facility that provides a strict emphasis on recovery. OMART is one of the more affordable inpatient programs available with a higher than average duration of stay.
Accommodations and Food
OMART offers co-ed dormitory style housing (with the genders kept separate by hallway) in one large facility buffered by trees and green fields. Rooms are shared, but each comes with a private bathroom, twin beds and simple furniture pieces. While the facility can accommodate as many as 40 clients at a time, there are generally only between 24 and30. There is a cook on staff who prepares three hot meals a day, as well as healthy snacks during class sessions.
Those looking to spend some of their allotted free time on a workout or excursion. There is a sand volleyball court on-site and residents frequently take walks around the ground after lunch during free periods. In addition, during the summer months, they can enjoy trips every Friday afternoon to the nearby White River.
Treatment and Staff
Average stays are between 28 and 42 days and those days start early at OMART with a 6 am wake-up call every morning and a morning mediation session. Breakfast follows shortly thereafter at 7 am, followed by a schedule of group therapy and educational classes. Each of these sessions is around 45 minutes long.
At 4 pm, clients can enjoy a period of free time before dinner. Twice a week, OMART holds a 12-step meeting at their facility, with occasional off-site trips to local meetings as well. Residents in need of medical detox must schedule on their own before arrival. While OMART does offer a non-medical detox for clients undergoing only minor withdrawal symptoms, those suffering from severe symptoms must be transported to nearby Baxter Regional Medical Center for stabilization. OMART does have a medical director on staff who provides an initial intake assessment, but there is no real medical or psychiatric staff available for day-to-day concerns.
Residents are permitted certain medications, though which ones are determined before their stay; the on-site staff handles the distribution of any necessary medication throughout the day. OMART also offers extended care through a facility in Gassville, which aids clients in finding employment and sober living situations once their inpatient stay is over.
A standout feature of the OMART program is the specialized women’s services, which provide specific care for pregnant women, or those with children ages six and under. This means that women can bring their children with them to OMART, with the facility shuttling them to a nearby daycare facility each day. OMART can also tailor individual and group therapy to these women, offering education for psycho-social issues, women’s health, parenting skills, childcare, job skills, budgeting, nutrition, aftercare planning and family education. Case management and drug testing are also a part of the package. This program tends to last longer, with average stays between 90 days and six months.
Given the low cost and relatively small client rolls, OMART is a dependable facility with highly structured, 12-step based care for those living in the Ozarks. Overall, for those in neighboring counties looking to start their recovery at a low cost, OMART Inc. may be a good fit.
