Incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1972 and certified by the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addictions Services, the CARF-accredited Cleveland Treatment Center is one of the largest freestanding chemical dependency facilities in Ohio. It offers substance abuse treatment on an outpatient basis, as well as a host of related community-oriented programs.
Treatment and Staff
The program at the Cleveland Treatment Center begins after an initial intake evaluation, which determines a schedule of care suited to a client’s individual needs, including the meeting of court mandates. The most comprehensive treatment program offered at the Cleveland Treatment Center is its Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which consists of group therapy three times a week and individual therapy once a week, all led by the facility’s primary staff of LADCs and LSWs. There is also a standard outpatient program, which consists of group and individual sessions at a less frequent rate. While the facility does not espouse any one treatment methodology during these sessions, 12-step recovery principles are a major foundation of the Cleveland Treatment Center program and on-site meetings are available at least once a week. The facility aims to keep group sessions small and clients, who are typically a mix of court-mandated and self-referring, can expect no more than three to eight people in a group at a time.
While there is an on-staff medical director and it is possible to make physician’s appointments, there is no dual diagnosis care component to the treatment program at this time. However, the facility does hope to add these services in the future. And while there are no detox services offered at Cleveland Treatment Center, a major component of its program is Methadone treatment, which is available to participating clients seven days a week.
The IOP at Cleveland Treatment Center is long-term in nature, typically lasting nine months. Following this, aftercare is offered, in the form of a de-escalated program, with group sessions once or twice a week and individual sessions as needed. Clients participating in the standard outpatient program follow a similar step down program of care.
Clients can also expect special group and individual sessions that include art therapy, smoking cessation treatment and a family program, as well as related services such as vocational training and case management. The facility also administers drug screens and offers a substance abuse program for adolescents that mirrors the adult program with a heavier emphasis on group sessions.
In addition to the substance abuse treatment, the Cleveland Treatment Center offers a range of community outreach programs. These include the Project S.A.F.E. program which provides HIV/AIDS education, outreach and counseling; the “Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs” program for adolescents, which offers weekly fishing trips and aquatic resources; and the “Let it Ride, Game Ready 4 Life” program, which lets young people participate in a series of community activities such as park management, graphic design, video production, theater, creative and business writing, in an effort to promote employment and life skills.
With a long history of providing community-oriented care, the Cleveland Treatment Center offers a comprehensive IOP, with a series of additional services that clients can utilize to bolster their recovery. While clients in need of dual diagnosis care may do well to consult another option, those seeking long-term outpatient care grounded in a 12-step philosophy should find the Cleveland Treatment Center a resourceful facility.
