Dr. Bill Webb was trained by The Johnson Institute to conduct interventions. These are performed in collaboration with significant-others who are trying to get help for a person with mental/substance abuse health problems or a family in crisis who will not seek help on their own.
There are four certified addiction counselors on staff. We provide outpatient evaluation, treatment, and referral services to individuals, families, and groups.
Our addictions treatment staff has very good relationships with a network of local and national addiction treatment programs which offer more intensive care. Using A.S.A.M. Patient Placement Criteria 3rd edition we can determine the appropriate level of care and offer seamless referrals to the treatment facility providing the level of care which best matches the individual's needs.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) under the FHWA regulation 49CFR Part 382, has established certain rules for ensuring public safety in federally-qualified transportation services. The safety objective is to prevent, through deterrence and detection, alcohol and controlled substances users from performing transportation "safety-sensitive" functions. The substance abuse professional (SAP) is responsible for several duties important to the evaluation, referral and treatment of employees identified through breath and urinalysis testing as being positive for alcohol and/or controlled substance use. Shawn Cade and April Watkins provide the DOT/SAP services at Oasis.
Many modern companies offer employees a program known as the Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The goal of such programs is to provide a procedure whereby an employer can offer an employee another alternative besides personnel discipline, when a job-performance problem has been identified. This approach also offers an employee a practical, confidential, and solution-focused approach to problems which may be affecting their ability to satisfactorily complete work tasks. The goal is to assist the employee in identifying and resolving the problem at their earliest stage and return the employee to effective levels of work performance.
Sometimes it is necessary to refer the EAP client to another professional in the community. The EAP providers at Oasis are knowledgeable about existing local resources and will provide referral as appropriate to the client's need. Research indicates that effective use of EAPs results in a significant cost savings to employers and employees alike.
EAPs are helpful in addressing a wide variety of issues, including (but not limited to) the following problems: alcohol/drug abuse, psychoemotional distress, marital/family, legal, financial, child or elder care, and even stress management. When used effectively, EAP is both an employer and employee benefit. All therapists at Oasis have been trained to effectively deal with EAP referrals.
Psychological testing can be beneficial in a variety of ways. Intellectual (IQ) and achievement testing, for example, is helpful in assessing the nature of school difficulties and in providing recommendations for an Individual Education Program (IEP). Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) testing is helpful and valuable in making an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan for adults and children who may be displaying Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) symptoms. Personality testing may be helpful in assisting you and your therapist in developing a more effective treatment plan to meet your goals. They can also help you to better understand the nature of your behavioral patterns so you can decide what you might want to change about your life.
Psychological testing can also be helpful in addressing such questions as: Does your child have school problems and you are not sure why? Has your physician suggested that you get some "psychological testing"? Do you feel that you or a family member may be displaying symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, a substance abuse problem, or ineffective coping strategies? Psychological testing can be helpful in each of these situations, providing objective information helpful to not only accurately diagnose the nature of the problem, but to provide recommendations and strategies to address the problem.
Human service professionals possess a repertoire of skills and knowledge-base that provide a solid foundation from which consultation services are designed. The skills of the professional in the field of human behavior can bring their unique training and talents to the business arena to assist a consultee in solving work- related problems.
It is widely accepted in the field of professional consultation that there exists many diverse forms of professional consultation, and that organizations hire consultants for several different reasons. There is no one model of consultation that is effective across all possible organizational settings. Because of this fact, and because he is experienced at helping people develop problem solving approaches which are specifically tailored to their needs, Dr. Webb has developed his own personal model of consultation. Dr. Webb believes that the most effective consultation process evolves from the integration of one's knowledge and abilities with one's unique personality. Therefore, he has adopted a generic model of consultation which provides a systematic, problem solving approach based on current human behavioral technologies. The consultation process entails exploring organizational needs, gathering relevant data, defining specific and measurable goals, developing and implementing a targeted intervention, executing the plan, evaluating the plan and the consultation process, and terminating of the consultation relationship. The overall goal is always to help people solve "people-problems".
DRUG FREE WORKPLACE SAFETY PROGRAM: DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING

No business, regardless of size or location, is immune to the countless problems caused by employees with substance use disorders. The toll of even one employee’s alcohol and/or drug problem can be devastating.
