Alcohol Recovery Begins at Cincinnati’s Ohio Community Health

Alcoholism is clinically described as alcohol use disorder. Alcohol use disorder is a chronic brain condition with high relapse rates. That said, if you engage with science-backed therapies at an alcohol rehab in Cincinnati, you can build a firm foundation for sustained sobriety.

The latest data from SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) indicate that 29.5 million U.S. adults met the DSM-5-TR criteria for alcohol use disorder in 2021. Among those, only 2.5 million obtained any form of treatment.

How Our Cincinnati Drug And Alcohol Rehab Can Help

Partial Hospitalization Program/Day Treatment

Our PHP (partial hospitalization program) is the most intensive form of outpatient treatment with between 30 and 35 hours of weekly time commitment required.

You will attend weekday therapy sessions with peers addressing similar issues with addictions and mental health conditions.

Unlike residential rehab, you will return home between therapy sessions, getting chance to put into practice the things you are learning at rehab.

PHPs can be effective for those with more severe addictions, and for those with co-occurring disorders.

After completing a PHP at Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers, you may step down to an IOP (intensive outpatient program).

Our Intensive Outpatient Programs in Cincinnati

An IOP at Ohio Recovery Centers offers you the most affordable and flexible pathway to addiction recovery.

Intensive outpatient programs are similar to PHPs. The main difference is that our IOP offers a time commitment of between 12 and 15 hours weekly, making it less intensive than a PHP.

IOPs place more emphasis on group therapy than on individual counseling, although you will still get chance to work one-to-one with therapists and counselors.

For those with mild or moderate addictions and no co-occurring mental health conditions, an IOP at Ohio Recovery Centers can help treat all types of addictions.

Cincinnati Dual Diagnosis Treatment

According to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), 17 million U.S. adults met the criteria for dual diagnosis in 2020.

Dual diagnosis, also known as co-occurring disorder, involves the simultaneous presentation of a mental health disorder and an addiction. Research shows that integrated treatment of both conditions produces superior outcomes.

At Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers, we specialize in integrated and coordinated dual diagnosis treatment. Through a personalized combination of pharmacological and behavioral interventions, you can unpack the intertwined nature of addiction and mental health issues, creating a solid foundation for sustained sobriety and sound mental health.

Our Medication-Assisted Treatment Program

Both alcohol use disorder and opioid use disorder can be treated with medications approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration).

MAT at Ohio Recovery Centers may be utilized both during detoxification and throughout ongoing outpatient treatment. Medications can reduce the severity of cravings and withdrawal symptoms during detox. As you transition into an IOP or PHP, medications may continue to reduce cravings and may inhibit further substance abuse, minimizing the likelihood of relapse.

Medication-assisted treatment for opioid and alcohol addiction is proven effective, and always best combined with psychotherapies like CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy).

If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction or substance abuse, a Medication-Assisted Treatment program could deliver the help they need to begin recovering.

  • Relapse prevention strategies
  • Relapse management

Cincinnati Drug And Alcohol Addiction Treatment FAQs

Drug abuse and alcoholism are progressive conditions that will get worse if untreated. Choosing to engage with an evidence-based treatment program at a reputable rehab will strengthen your chances of recovery without relapse.

Here are the most frequently asked questions we receive at Ohio Recovery Centers concerning drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

Five types of therapy that can be used to treat alcoholism are:

  1. Psychotherapy: CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) is proven effective for the treatment of alcohol use disorder. Learn what triggers you to abuse alcohol, and discover how to implement healthier coping techniques in place of alcohol when confronted by everyday stressors.
  2. Group therapy: Group therapy sessions allow you to enjoy a sense of community, accountability, and support as you discuss all aspects of alcoholism and recovery with peers undergoing similar experiences.
  3. MI (motivational interviewing): MI can help you to become more motivated to make positive behavioral changes and move from active alcoholism into ongoing recovery.
  4. Family therapy: Involve your family members in treatment and work on improving your communication skills and strengthening your relationships.
  5. Peer support groups: 12-step support groups like AA and NA or non-12-step groups like SMART Recovery are a valuable supplement to treatment to many people in recovery from alcohol use disorder.

The best form of treatment for addiction will depend on the type of addiction, the severity of the addiction, and any co-occurring mental health disorders. All addictions respond well to treatment with behavioral interventions like CBT. Both alcoholism and opioid addiction can be treated with FDA-approved medications, during both detox and ongoing recovery. Counseling and holistic therapies may also supplement these behavioral and pharmacological interventions.

The shortest inpatient rehab programs are 30-day programs. This includes a week or so of detoxification followed by three weeks of intensive therapy. After a short stay in residential rehab, many people step down to some form of intensive outpatient treatment before moving back into sober living.

The most common inpatient rehab courses are:

  • 30-day rehab
  • 60-day rehab
  • 90-day rehab

Outpatient rehab courses take place over several months and can be individualized to meet your requirements. Lengthier treatment durations are typically associated with superior treatment outcomes.

Since the enactment of the ACA (Affordable Care Act) in 2010, major health insurance providers must offer at least partial coverage for alcohol rehab. If you do not have health insurance, you may be entitled to Medicaid. Medicaid coverage for substance abuse treatment may include:

  • Inpatient rehab
  • Outpatient rehab
  • Prescription medications

Citizen requirements and financial eligibility will be considered when determining whether you qualify for Medicaid. Medicaid coverage for alcohol addiction treatment varies significantly from state to state and according to factors including your state of residence, the treatment facility, and the insurance plan level.

Taylor Lilley CDCA, PRS

Growing up in Louisiana with addiction running rampant on both sides of my family. A life away from drugs and alcohol seemed impossible for someone like me. I remember what it was like sitting across from someone thinking there is no way they could ever understand what I was going through.

Sharing my experience offers a credibility and a certain type of trust with clients that only someone who has walked down this road can illustrate. To immerse myself further into the field of addiction, I am currently studying at Cincinnati State for Human and Social Services.  I hope I never forget where I came from, if I can do it, so can you!

 My name is Mary D. Porter. I received my Masters of Social Work in 2008 from The University of Cincinnati. I received My Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor Licensure in 2001. I retired from The Department of Veteran Affairs Medical Center on April 14, 2014. Currently, I am the Associate Clinical Director for The Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers in Cincinnati.. Due to the fourth wave of the Opioid Epidemic in 2019,  I decided to enter back into the workforce to assist the addicted population.

The overdoses were astounding and I wanted to help.  I consider myself  to be an advocate for the addicted population. My compassion, resilience, empathy, wisdom, knowledge, experience and  love I have for this forgotten population goes beyond words. I consider what I do for the addicted population as a calling versus a “career,” because I too was once an “addict and alcoholic.” Today I am 45.5 years alcohol and substance free.

Ben Lemmon LCDC III

Hello, my name is Ben Lemmon, and I’m the Vice President and Clinical Director at Ohio Community Health Recovery Centers. I’ve been working in the addiction and mental health field since 2013 and decided to enter the field after overcoming my own challenges with addiction.

When I first meet a client, I always explain to them that the reason we are meeting is because they are not capable of obtaining or maintaining sobriety, and my goal is to create a person that can maintain sobriety. I believe a person’s personality is made up of their thoughts, feelings and actions and my job is to help clients identify the thoughts, feelings and actions that have them disconnected from recovery and provide them with the tools to live a healthy and happy life.
