- Addiction Recovery Treatment
Oaklawn walks hand-in-hand with our clients on their journey — facing the complexity of mental illness together. As a faith-based organization, we believe in treating the whole person — mind, body and spirit. We do this by employing highly trained professionals who provide all levels of services to our clients and advocate within our community on their behalf.
Oaklawn offers specialized addictions treatment programs for adolescents and adults in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties. Our programs are designed to treat complex addictions, in addition to traditional addictions treatment. Services can include those who are addicted to more than one substance, people who have failed in other programs or people who are also facing a mental illness.
Addictions Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Participants in IOP, a mixed-gender group, learn skills to become sober and work on communication, relationship skills and goal-setting.
Intensive Outpatient Program for Women: We utilize the Matrix model and provide specialized addictions treatment for women offering them new hope for healing.
Gambling Treatment Program: Offered in collaboration with our other addictions programs. Length of treatment varies according to a participant’s individual goals. Program components include individual sessions, goal setting, psycho-education, relapse prevention and medication management, as required. Our program also provides referrals to financial counselors and Gambler’s Anonymous.
Brief Marijuana Treatment: Offered to those in the substance use stages of pre-contemplation and contemplation. The goal is to improve through motivational interviewing. Individual and group sessions are used to assist clients in reaching the action stage.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT): MAT is an addictions treatment designed to use prescribed medications and therapy to decrease withdrawal symptoms, cravings and make the early days of the recovery process more manageable. Research shows substantially increased positive outcomes using medications and therapy combined.
Continuing Care: After the completion of an addictions IOP, participants begin a continuing care program, which includes relapse prevention education and strategies, as well as continued supportive intervention and monitoring.
Family Involvement: Clients, family members and significant others are encouraged to attend our family group therapy.
