Cleveland ClinicCleveland Clinic Review

Cleveland Clinic’s Lutheran Hospital is located near downtown Cleveland in Ohio. Situated among restaurants, shopping and the famous West Side Market, the area is a bustling and safe area for clientele. Among the wide range of health care services provided, the Lutheran Hospital also boasts an Alcohol and Drug Recovery Center. Inpatient detox services are available as well as outpatient services of varying intensity.

Treatment and Staff

The Alcohol and Drug Recovery Center at Lutheran Hospital offers an individualized treatment approach that is rigorous and client centric. Each individual that arrives on the premises is screened with a bio-psycho-social assessment. The assessment determines the need for detox, initial level of treatment and the presence of any co-occurring disorders. Duration of treatment is dependent on the client’s needs and the acuity of their addiction. Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)—including a prescription for Suboxone—may be employed if the client is dependent on opiates.

Clinical staff members utilize the Minnesota Model, identifying drug addiction and alcoholism as a chronic illness. Clients are introduced to this concept through therapeutic activities and 12-step program participation. Group and individual therapy are two mediums through which this concept in introduced. Identifying triggers and relapse prevention are emphasized. In addition to therapy groups, clients attend psycho-education sessions to learn more about the causes and conditions of addiction. Dual diagnosis support is available for clients who have additional mental health concerns.

If clients are only interested in detox, the average length of stay is three to four days during which they are introduced to low-intensity therapy. The Day Treatment Program is the next step in intensity. For eight hours each day, clients attend groups and individual sessions. Typically, clients are in the DTP for three weeks in total. Activities begin at 8:30 am and conclude at 4:15 pm with an hour lunch break in between. DTP clients meet with a Psychiatrist on a weekly basis.

An Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) track is also available. Four to five days a week, clients attend groups and other activities. Day hours are available from 9 am until noon, and evening hours are available from 6 to 9 pm. This time enables clients to maintain work schedules or tend to family responsibilities while seeking treatment. The IOP track is five weeks in length and is followed by a mandatory aftercare track for at least two months. The IOP track incorporates the family unit with family groups and helping clients develop as productive members in the community.

Groups for all tracks are facilitated by Psychiatrists, Licensed Registered Nurses and CADCs. Other staff members are available to help with insurance agencies and getting coverage for treatment.


Specialty groups are also available for clients with special needs. A Medical Professional’s Group, Executive Inner Circle, Professional Athletes Inner Circle, Women’s Advanced Recovery Growth Group, Professional Women’s Relapse Prevention Group and Nurses in Recovery Group are all available. These specific groups let clients with mutual professional interests or jobs come together for peer support.

The ADRC offers a family program so that clients and their family members can recovery together. On Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 pm, families come together to discuss codependency, family systems and support groups like Alanon.

Aftercare groups are available for clients who have completed their primary treatment tracks. Groups are held once per week and focus on relapse prevention and continuing recovery.

In Summary

Cleveland Clinic’s Lutheran Hospital has the ADRC available for treatment of substance abuse and mental health issues. Multiple tracks are available including detox, a day treatment program and an IOP. Family programming and aftercare ensure that clients are continuing their recovery and their families are involved in the process. Overall the ADRC at Lutheran Hospital provides a wide range of choices and an individualized approach to AOD treatment.
