Red Oak Recovery, a leading young adult drug and alcohol treatment center, is pleased to announce the opening of its women’s substance use and co-occurring treatment program on August 15, 2014. This clinically sophisticated program and trauma-informed care is designed to support young adult women ages 18-30 in healing emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
According to Heather Schnoebelen, MA, LPC, LCAS, CCS-I, “the women that we see at this level of care have often experienced trauma and need a safe and nurturing setting. Our private and serene location in the mountains of Western North Carolina is an ideal setting for women to have the opportunity to begin to heal.”
Red Oak Recovery’s adventure-based women’s program averages 90 days and is entirely individualized and dependent on the unique needs of each client. Red Oak Recovery is owner-operated and works with 8-10 women at a time to address substance use and co-occurring disorders, trauma, depression and anxiety, disordered eating, and body image.
Red Oak Recovery also has a men’s program however, the two are separate and differ from one another. “Women have historically been under-represented in treatment, and most programs aren’t gender-separate,” says our President. “We believe in the value of focusing on the specific needs of young adult women in recovery and we address these needs through integrative experiential therapies, nutritional and recreational therapy, psycho-education, DBT, CBT, EMDR, and a 12-Step philosophy to engage and empower young women in the early stages of recovery.”
According to Red Oak Recovery’s founders, abstinence is only the first step in what should be an integrated, whole-person healing process. Red Oak Recovery is designed to provide healing that is physical, spiritual, cognitive, practical (i.e. life skills), and social in scope.
