Information about our Evidence-based Practices
Evidence-based Practices used at the Oasis Renewal Center
Trauma-Informed Care is a strengths-based philosophy and approach to treatment that is based on an understanding that many individuals seeking substance abuse services have a history of trauma. It recognizes the interconnections between addictions and unresolved trauma.
TCU Mapping procedures involve the use of material produced by SAMHSA and are primarily used in correctional settings. Much of the material targets anti-social behaviors, criminal thinking, hostility, etc.
Motivational Interviewing techniques are used in both residential and outpatient services. We offer In-service training to our clinical staff and subcontractors to insure ongoing fidelity to this concept.

Seeking Safety is a therapy designed to promote safety and recovery for individuals with Post Traumatic Stress Disorders and substance abuse issues.
Matrix is a relapse prevention program designed for use in an Intensive Outpatient program. We pull resources from both the Matrix Model and Gorski in the 9-week Relapse Prevention component of Outpatient Services. To a lesser extent, Gorski’s relapse prevention program is used in the residential services.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a technique used in both residential and outpatient treatment, being the theoretical approach upon which the Matrix Model is built.
