Trauma Informed Care
Collaboration is the cornerstone of the treatment process at Oakendell. Every member of the team, from Line Staff to Administration, is an integral part of the therapeutic process. The Administrators’ and Therapists’ offices are located on site to ensure continuity of care.
To promote the best possible treatment outcomes, residents participate in weekly groups, individual and family therapy. Oakendell’s highly trained Therapists and Para-professionals use evidence-based practices such as:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
The line staff are dedicated to providing residents with a supportive environment. Many of the staff have been employed at Oakendell for over five years, some for more than ten years, and a few for 30 or more years. To further ensure a high quality of care, Oakendell provides Line Staff with specialized training in Trauma Informed Care. This allows for an extremely effective therapeutic milieu.
