About Oakhill

Here at Oakhill, we are passionate about women’s recovery from all types and forms of addiction. We believe that the highest caliber of care in the journey to recovery begins with other women who have a unique place in the world. Regardless of whether your addiction is with alcohol, drugs, gambling, food or something else, sometimes the best place to start the road to recovery is with other women.

Thus we strive to create a safe space for women to explore their own transformations, and hence create a more meaningful life. Transformation begins with the power of connection to both staff and our other clients.

Through our focus on the inter-relationship between mind, body and spirit, clients learn to follow an integrated path to addiction recovery. Using powerful tools such as mindfulness techniques, stress and anxiety reduction, and the learning of self-compassion and self-care, we provide the vital experience which allows our clients to heal and make lasting positive changes in their lives.

Our Addiction Treatment Program

Our holistic program includes healthy lifestyle coaching, such as integrating fitness, awareness of nutritional needs, yoga, enjoying the natural environment and most of all learning to have fun in healthy ways. We offer creative space to explore elements like art and music therapy. Our skilled clinical team provides a variety of courses, and clients receive educational programming to support their recovery on various levels. We encourage women to challenge themselves in new ways while restoring their inner strength. That is why the importance of living a balanced and healthy life is at the forefront of our daily program.

Our program duration: 45, 60 or 90-day core-programs. We have transition specialists who help women navigate various social supports, offer advocacy and can help women to access opportunities to achieve new goals. For clients with con-current disorders we recommend a minimum of 60 days. We offer longer stays for women who have more complex needs, or who require a safe space to strengthen their skills and further prepare them to embrace sober living.

Beautiful & Secure Environment

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Annapolis valley, Oakhill is in a natural setting, apart from distractions and temptations of a busy confusing world.

Delicious Nutritious Meals

Our chefs, in consultation with a nutritionist, work to provide high quality, nourishing meals, making sure that the specific needs of each of our clients in recovery are met.

Aftercare Training

We recognize the many diverse needs of women, and that is why we create individually tailored recovery plans, designed to help support their unique journeys. The first three to six months following treatment can be a very vulnerable time, so aftercare is the key to a successful and lasting recovery. We provide additional support after our clients leave Oakhill, and we maintain contact contact with them so that we can address and deal with the issues that might arise that lead to their addiction.

Comprehensive Addiction Therapy

Each of our clients receive individual and group therapy based on a variety of therapeutic approaches, depending on that client’s needs. The therapies are based on a combination of evidenced based, values based and contextual therapies delivered by our clinical team.

Private and Semi-Private Rooms

We believe people need the best possible environment to support their recovery, including special space for rest and relaxation. That is why we offer private or semi private rooms with ensuite bathrooms.

Medical and Psychological Consultations

As part of our holistic approach to treatment, we recognize that women have specific medical and psychological needs. The professional women on our team are all highly skilled in the many facets of addiction and provide an atmosphere of support particularly suited for our women clients.

Medical Detox

Detox is medically supervised by our on-site full time nurses. This is all coordinated by our medical team. For certain cases, we make use of medical aids to render the process much easier and safer. For opiate withdrawals we can use Suboxone, and for Benzodiazepine withdrawal we follow the Ashton protocol. Alcohol withdrawal is medically supervised and medication is given to eliminate the risk of seizure and stroke. We take every measure to ensure that this first, important stage towards drug addiction recovery is a comfortable and safe one.
