Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services was founded in 2004 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The CARF accredited organization serves over 15,000 people each year in the Hamilton County area. It provides outpatient substance abuse treatment services to adult men and women at seven locations.
Treatment and Staff
When clients begin the intake process at Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services, they initially meet with a counselor for an assessment. During this meeting, the counselor helps determine the client’s specific level of care and whether he or she would be a good fit for Greater Cincinnati. Clients are then referred to a specific outpatient program that fits their needs and their location. If clients are in need of more comprehensive treatment, they are referred to an outside residential or detox program.
All of Greater Cincinnati’s locations offer both an outpatient and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that consist of both group and individual meetings. The IOP meets for group meetings two to four times a week, while the outpatient program meets once a week. The group sizes vary but are usually between five and 15 clients. The exact length and intensity of the program is based on the needs of the client. Counselors aim to use treatment techniques that specifically address each person’s individual needs. Strategies include CBT, relapse prevention, education and sharing. Individual meetings are scheduled per client preference.
Although Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services is not 12-step based, counselors do recommend some clients attend outside AA and NA meetings while in the program. Greater Cincinnati is dual diagnosis, and refers clients with potential co-occurring disorders to the organization’s mental health counselors and on-staff psychiatrists. The staff across all facilities consists of a mixture of primary care physicians, psychiatrists, LPNs, LCPs and care managers.
Although Greater Cincinnati does not have an official family program, clients can request individual meetings with the counselors and their family members if they wish. The aim of these meetings is to address codependency issues and educate family members on substance abuse.
Greater Cincinnati also offers outpatient treatment programs for adolescents that accommodate their school needs including home-based counseling as well as more intensive day treatment programs with an educational element.
The organization also offers Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for clients who the counselors determine would benefit from withdrawal medication while they are in the early stages of sobriety.
Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services offers an affordable outpatient program to adult men and women in Cincinnati and Hamilton County at large. Using AA/NA principles, Greater Cincinnati provides the structured treatment often necessary in the early stages of recovery. The medical component, small group size, option to receive MAT and manageable price tag all make this facility a solid option.
