Dublin Springs Review
Part of an organization that’s been around for a decade, Dublin Springs hospital has been open for about three years. Dublin Springs is located in the Columbus suburb of Dublin, Ohio and is a sister hospital to Beckett Springs Hospital outside Cincinnati in West Chester. The facility provides a combination of detox with supportive short-term inpatient substance abuse treatment for four days up to two weeks. Dublin Springs offers evidence-based treatment utilizing individualized treatment plans that incorporate the Good Days Ahead and Hazelden curricula and also provide dual diagnosis support.
Accommodations and Food
Dublin Springs treatment takes place in a 72-bed hospital setting. Rooms are semi-private, shared with one other client but each including an en-suite bathroom, separate closet space for each of the clients and a desk for each. Washer and dryers can be found on-site, while detergent is provided at no cost, as are toiletries, though clients may choose to bring their own.
Three meals a day are served cafeteria-style and included in the cost of stay and treatment. A registered dietitian consults on the regular menu’s preparation as well as and special dietary needs. Extra snacks and drinks are available all day.
Treatment and Staff
Dublin Springs does not offer the typical 30-day treatment. Clients are assessed during detox and must meet the level of qualification corresponding to the limited program length. During the one to two weeks in the program, clients take part in different group sessions almost every hour during the day. That includes recreation therapy psychotherapy, pet therapy, coping skills and relapse prevention classes. They also see a psychiatrist and have an individual session every day and may take part in family therapy as needed. CBT is used in conjunction with COGNIT, an internet based e-learning and recovery tracking system. Clients may have up to 10 hours of therapy per day.
Dublin Springs has a psychiatrist, psychologist, staff nurse, patient care assistant, recreational/expressive therapist and a LCSW in its employ. Individual and family therapy is conducted by the social worker or a visiting MFT.
Currently, Dublin Spring does not offer the separate Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) options listed on its website but an alumni support group for former clients is available Mondays from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and Thursdays from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. Note the group does not meet on the first Thursday of each month.
Dublin Springs may be a young organization but it is well-organized in offering specialized substance abuse services. Treatment plans are short term, but flexible. Medicare is the only insurance that covers a Dublin Springs extended stay, past the first week, while private insurance only covers detox. For those considering treatment at Dublin Springs these are the factors to be considered.
