About James Oldham Treatment Center
Nestled in the orchards of the lower Yakima Valley, JOTC has been helping adult men find a path toward health and hope since 1984. We bring to life the values of the program’s namesake, James Oldham, and Triumph as a whole: that every person deserves a chance to get treatment and find hope. JOTC strives to improve the behavioral, emotional, and overall health of men who are looking for a clean and sober life.
How Long is the Stay?
Your stay is as long as you need it to be. This might be a few weeks, or it could be a few months. You will work with your counselor and the rest of your care team to determine the best treatment duration to put you on the path toward healing.
JOTC uses American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) clinical criteria to help guide decisions about length of stay based on medical necessity.
We have developed and refined our programs to ensure the highest level of recovery and success for all our clients. Every client at JOTC will receive no less than 20 hours per week of treatment activities including:
- Daily group sessions
- Individual sessions
- Educational lectures
- Integrated family treatment
We fully encourage all our clients to participate in some form of physical activity every day. Whether you choose to lift weights, play basketball or volleyball, throw some horseshoes, or just take a walk around the grounds—moving and staying active are essential steps on the road to recovery. We also offer the use of a universal gym and weight room for patient use. (You must be medically cleared to participate in physical activities.)
