Cleveland, Ohio Residential Treatment Centers

Cleveland, Ohio Residential Drug Rehab

Cleveland, Ohio, is known for its sports, music, and manufacturing, but like others in the nation, Cleveland is also facing a drug overdose problem right now. The entire state of Ohio has been fighting a prescription drug epidemic since the 1990s, and now as these medications are more closely regulated and harder to obtain, addicts are switching to heroin, fentanyl, and other harder drugs.

Both prescription painkillers and street drugs like heroin are dangerous. Being derivatives of the same substance, these drugs release dopamine in the brain that provides pain relief, causes sedation, slows the central nervous system, and can produce a feeling of euphoria. They also can slow respiration and other functions so drastically that the person is at risk for overdose and death.

In today’s society, prescription painkillers are commonly prescribed to help manage painful conditions. However, when not treated with respect, they are traded, sold, and abused, and lead to dependence and addiction. As individuals get used to the high they get from prescription painkillers, they begin to crave more and turn to other opiates like fentanyl, heroin, or the large animal medication called carfentanil. These other drugs often produce a better high, are easier to obtain, and in most cases, are even less predictable and more dangerous because their contents and filler substances are unknown.

Drug abuse controls lives and it is not easily stopped. Those who are addicted to opiates or any other substance need professional help to overcome the addiction. With help, the individual will understand the disease of addiction and how they have become dependent on the substance, as well as address the reasons they started using in the first place. Professional treatment helps the person develop skills to stay sober and overcome triggers to use. It also helps individuals put into place healthy coping skills for stress and pressure in life.

The Ridge is a residential treatment center that helps individuals in the Cleveland and surrounding area overcome their addiction to opiates, drugs, alcohol, and other substances. Our team of professionals is here to help you get to the heart of the issue so that you can make a full recovery and enjoy a sober life.

Cleveland, Ohio Residential Alcohol Rehab

Alcoholism and alcohol abuse are problems facing all areas of Ohio. The Ridge program is a residential treatment program located near Cincinnati. Because clients stay at the facility for 30 days or longer, we are an ideal fit for anyone in Ohio who needs residential levels of care for alcohol use disorders.

Getting Help for Alcohol Use Disorder in Cleveland, OH

When a person seeks help for alcohol use disorder that individual needs to understand their options when it comes to treatment. Most folks never need to seek alcohol treatment facilities, so the process is unfamiliar. With the right information, you can make the best choice for yourself or your loved one.

Some people are not sure if they have a problem or are calling for their loved ones and may not be sure of the extent or severity of abuse. From our experience usually, if you are making the effort to call, there is enough evidence of a problem that the next steps should be taken. It is best not to wait as the alcohol use rarely improves on its own.

When a person calls The Ridge, we do an initial phone screening, this takes about five minutes and it determines broadly if you (or your loved one) is/are an appropriate candidate for our residential alcohol rehab program. After we determine your eligibility you will do a pre-assessment with a licensed professional that will be more in-depth and is designed to help determine the appropriate level of care, whether detox or mental health help is needed, and forms the foundation of your treatment plan. Once this is reviewed you will then receive an intake date.

Usually, a full continuum of care is the best option if the person has been abusing alcohol for long periods. A full continuum of care offers multiple levels of treatment intensity and keeps the patient engaged in treatment as long as possible. This process is defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) and organizations such as the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

For alcohol use disorder, a common treatment plan may include

Alcohol detoxification: A person who abuses alcohol with enough frequency and amount (as determined by medical staff) will require a detox period in a medical facility. This is usually severaldays (the length is determined by medical need). In the case of The Ridge program, we will take the patient bed to bed once the detox protocol is complete. In many cases, we see patients who are not drinking every day or are more binge drinkers, or who may have already been through detox. We can accept them directly into our residential level of care after clearance from our physicians.

Residential Alcohol Rehab: This level of care is offered at The Stuckert house through The Ridge program. Guests will have several weeks of intensive daily programming. This residential programming includes one on one counseling, group counseling, weekly treatment team sessions to evaluate progress, and therapeutic adjuncts to treatment. At the residential level of care, clients stay at The Stuckert House 24 hours a day with clinical supervision. Clients are provided with meals, recreation, and exercise opportunities as part of their treatment episode.

Partial Hospitalization/PHP: This is a step down from residential care which allows for less supervision with daily treatment still occurring.

Aftercare: After completing the residential treatment program most patients benefit from having access to continued support. The Ridge provides a weekly aftercare group to serve this need. This extended period lasts for about 52 weeks and increases the chances of long-term recovery. It is recommended by our physicians and is part of The Ridge program. If you are too far from Cincinnati, we can help set you up with an equivalent aftercare experience in your area. We have people travel from Dayton and all over the region to attend our aftercare.

How Much Does Alcohol Rehab Cost at The Ridge?

Our program varies in length and intensity depending on your specific medical needs. We accept private health insurance and bill the out of network benefits for your treatment episode. This means that most people will have a copayment due on the day of admission.

We cannot accept Medicaid, Medicare or marketplace insurance plans as they do not offer out of network benefits. For more about our program costs please see this page.

The Ridge program is based on medical necessity and that is determined throughout your treatment episode using clinical assessments, counselor and client input, and DSM-5 criteria. In general, the residential portion of the stay averages about 30 days. And the outpatient aftercare portion is 52 weeks. Detox, if necessary is completed before you are admitted to residential. Detox length can vary greatly depending on alcohol use habits and client health status.
