Substance Abuse Treatment in Cincinnati
Addiction is a treatable but complicated disease affecting behavior and brain function. Using alcohol or drugs can change the brain’s structure and function. There’s no single treatment protocol that works for everyone. Instead, treatment settings, services and interventions must be tailored to the person receiving treatment.
At The Recovery Village Columbus, our addiction specialists and clinical team treat the whole person rather than just their addiction. We address each patient’s physical, mental, and emotional needs for sustainable recovery.
Drug and Alcohol Detox
When someone struggles with addiction, the first step to recovery at The Recovery Village Columbus is medical detoxification. During detox, the body rids itself of the drugs or alcohol in its system while under medical supervision, often leading to withdrawal symptoms. Your medical team helps make the withdrawal experience as safe and comfortable as possible For most patients, a medical detox lasts around a week, but can vary by substance and addiction severity.
During your medical detox, you can expect:
- Comprehensive psychological, social and risk assessments
- Screenings for drugs and alcohol
- Co-occurring disorder evaluation
- 24/7 medical care
- Medications to manage withdrawal symptoms
- Nutritious foods
- Quiet spaces for rest
Once most patients complete a medical detox, the next step is inpatient rehab. Inpatient rehab is the most intensive level of care, where patients live onsite and participate in full-day programming. Inpatient treatment at The Recovery Village Columbus includes:
- 24-hour medical support
- Comfortable accommodations
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Medication management
- Nutritious, well-balanced meals
- Recreational therapy and activities like yoga, fitness, sports and art
- Peer support
When appropriate, a residential patient’s treatment plan may also include:
- Dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring disorders
- Family therapy
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)
Residential treatment has unique advantages. In a structured setting, patients living onsite can step outside of their daily environment, minimizing stress, distractions and triggers. This allows for a complete focus on healing and recovery. You begin developing healthy lifestyle habits and work with your treatment team to understand and address the root of your addiction.
Outpatient rehab at The Recovery Village Columbus can include:
- Individual counseling
- Group therapy
- Medical care
- Family therapy
- Relapse prevention
- Case management
- Medication management when needed
In an outpatient treatment program, you can live at home or in a sober living community and travel to the facility for scheduled appointments. Most patients enter outpatient treatment following higher levels of care, but every situation differs. In outpatient treatment, you are more accountable for your recovery, sobriety and personal growth. While there’s more responsibility to maintain your recovery outside of treatment, you also have the flexibility to take care of home, family and work responsibilities.
Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs)
As they recover, patients step down to the partial hospitalization program (PHP) at The Recovery Village Columbus after inpatient treatment. PHPs provide a smoother transition to outpatient care and independent living, with more hours of free time than inpatient programming. Patients continue to receive individual and group therapy, medical care and case management, while beginning to manage their own recovery.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Co-occurring disorders, like depression or anxiety, affect roughly half of the people with a drug or alcohol addiction. The dual diagnosis program at The Recovery Village Columbus is a core offering at every level of care. We diagnose and treat a patient’s addiction and mental health conditions together to improve patient outcomes and decrease their relapse risk.
Completing rehab programs is a huge accomplishment, but it’s not the end of recovery. Aftercare plans at The Recovery Village Columbus includes:
- A detailed relapse prevention plan
- Continued online therapy through Nobu, our mental wellness app
- Local medical referrals
- Support groups
- Twelve-step programs
- Sober living recommendations
An aftercare plan that’s well-designed and thought out significantly improves the chances of maintaining a long-term recovery after leaving a formal treatment program. All aspects of your aftercare plan are personalized to you and intended to help you stay focused on your achievements and healthy lifestyle.
