I went to the Oaks on 3-31-17 to begin my recovery. Here’s my story...I was ready to stop using. I found all of the help that I needed to start building a foundation and a new life. It was great to be around the employees on the men's unit that were in recovery themselves...they were a hope shot for me and I wanted what they had....Im clean today and I help take a meeting into a treatment center in my home town. I'm grateful that I was able to go there...I couldn't have done this alone
The best thing I ever did. The staff are all caring and supportive.
Great counseling groups, great accommodations and great food, and that's the only reason I'm giving this place 3 stars. During my last week of treatment the NP I normally saw, Ms. Deidtrich who is wonderful, was on vacation. Instead, the last week I was scheduled to see NP Ms. Long. In my opinion, Ms. Long has an agenda when it comes to psychotropic medications and is on a mission to blindly enforce it on everyone she sees, regardless of their unique case. The first time I saw Ms. Long, without her even really talking to me to get to know me, she told me I had been on medication "too long" (almost 5 years). I immediately began advocating for myself. After all, I was just finishing up a round of Electroconvulsive Therapy (which is only reserved for patients with the severest forms of depression), I had active suicidal ideation about 5 weeks earlier and La Paloma sent me to a psychiatric hospital because of it, and it's very clear to me and my psychiatrist back home I'm one of the unique cases that needs to be on medication longterm. When I advocated for myself, Ms. Long said, "Do you really want to be tied to a pill for 40 years?" I said, "Yes, if it makes me feel better." Then Ms. Long said, "I"m hopeful all my patients will achieve remission." I told her she had only known me 4 minutes and didn't know enough about me to make that assumption. Long story short I got the Patient Advocate and Clinical Director involved, and they assured me Ms. Long was not going to make any changes to my medication. I thought I was in the clear, until I discharged. After discharging, I saw that Ms. Long and reduced my prescription of Effexor - an antidepressant that is known to be difficult to wean from - from 225mg a day to 75 mg a day! That's a very aggressive titration from 3 pills a day to only 1 pill a day. Had I followed it, I could have ended up with serious side effects including active suicidal ideation again. Luckily I had enough pills to maintain my 3 pill a day dosage until I was able to very quickly get into my home psychiatry office to get an appropriate prescription. While I haven't had the time to yet, I do plan to report Ms. Long to the State of Tennessee's Mental Health Department.
La paloma is an amazing rehabilitation facility. Every single member of the staff was professional and caring. The care and support I received helped prepare me for a successful stay in sober living and IOP program. LA PALOMA taught me life skills I will carry with me forever. Thank you la paloma!

I sent my 19 yr old Son to the Oaks on June 11th 2017. I was scared to death but based on the recommendations from Intervention 911, I took the plunge. The day after he arrived I happened to read some of the reviews. I was petrified, I called the facility and was so scared and anxious thinking I made a bad decision. I must admit it wasn't easy getting in contact with someone and had a bit of a struggle getting in touch with proper contacts. After we made the proper contact connections the communication was excellent. The quality of the Staff was excellent. The Facility was very well kept and the food was absolutely amazing. As I previously stated I did have a tough time getting the initial communication started. That would be my only complaint or area of improvement. I must add that my son was not as cooperative as he should or could have been, but that did not stop Henry (Therapist) from taking him on as one of his own and he made excellent progress even though it was like pulling teeth. One additional comment, it is tough to replicate the quality of the care they received in The Oaks, we still cannot find a therapist or Psychiatrist that even comes close to the staff at the Oaks. I recommend The Oaks Hands Down!
The Oaks Literally saved my life. All the staff I enteracted with was nothing but loving and caring and would listen to anything you wanted to talk about. As crazy as it may sounds, there have been times that I wish I could go back and close out the world.
Helped my son! Such a great group of people.
“We are forever grateful for The Oaks at La Paloma. My nephew struggled for 16 years with drug and alcohol abuse. During that 16 years our Family was determined to never give up as we believed there had to be an answer. That answer finally came when he agreed to enroll and attend the 30 day Recovery program at The Oaks. After completing the program, the change and progress in his thinking and behavior is nothing short of radical. Not only will the connection he made to the counselors and staff be the strong foundation to his future success, he now has the needed tools to face his future with confidence. Through the caring medical staff, structured program, and holistic approach to healing, the Oaks at La Paloma truly provides an environment where people have the opportunity to move beyond addiction and begin living Life once again.”

I just returned from the grand re-opening of The Oaks at La Paloma. I was so proud of the team there! The Blue Door recording studio is fabulous. The new sport court, fountain and the fire pit are very well done. I can't wait to spend more time on the nature trail. Bravo Oaks team!
