Toledo, Ohio Residential Treatment Centers

Toledo, Ohio Residential Drug Rehab

Drug addiction and overdose are occurring at an overwhelming rate in Lucas County and the state of Ohio. While any kind of drug abuse and addiction is concerning, the problem with opiate prescription medications and heroin has been particularly devastating in recent years, leaving many communities scrambling for a solution.

The drugs of choice today are opiates; in particular fentanyl and a large animal medication called carfentanil, but the root cause of today’s opiate epidemic began a few years ago with a rise in prescription painkillers. As more and more Americans experienced effective pain relief from prescription opiates like Oxycontin and codeine in the 1990s, some began getting hooked on the feeling of euphoria these drugs would provide, especially if they were overused. Prescription painkillers began to be traded and sold to drug dealers and addicts looking for a different kind of high, and some doctors and clinics specialized in the illegal prescribing of these medications.

Once the government started shutting down pill mills and revoking licenses of doctors who were inappropriately prescribing these medications, they became harder and harder to obtain. This led to a rapid increase in the demand for heroin, also an opiate, which was becoming cheaper and easier to obtain. Today, addicts are turning to other opiates, including fentanyl and the animal drug, carfentanil, to get a better high. All this has led to a spike in addiction, overdose, and death among those experimenting with these very dangerous substances.

Toledo, Ohio Residential Alcohol Rehab

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 Toledo, 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.
