Since opening its doors in 1998, Century Health Services has offered an array of mental health and substance abuse services in several locations, the newest of which is Tree Line Recovery Center in Findlay, a city in northwestern Ohio. Tree Line, which opened in January, is Hancock County’s first addiction recovery center and provides intensive residential treatment with dual diagnosis support for chemical dependency.
Accommodations and Food
Tree Line’s coed but gender-separated facility has four beds for women and eight for men. Clients stay in double-occupancy rooms that are somewhat hotel-like in their design—two beds separated by a nightstand and a chair for each resident. The furniture is dark wood, the floors are light wood and there is a large window in each room. There is also a communal meeting area with a wall-mounted DVD screen and a lounge complete with comfortable stuffed chairs and a fireplace.
The kitchen is stocked with modern, commercial appliances that make it easy for residents to prepare their own meals. They can buy their own groceries and cook for themselves or a group. That said, group dining is encouraged to foster the ongoing recovery process. Residents are also responsible for keeping the kitchen and public spaces clean and tidy.
Treatment and Staff
Century Health—in conjunction with the Hancock County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services and local law enforcement—can facilitate crisis intervention for an individual with substance abuse issues. Intervention services are provided 24/7 and the team can move within 45 minutes of receiving a call.
Following stabilization and upon evaluation, clients can begin residential treatment at Tree Line, where stays typically last between 30 and 90 days. Off-site detox cane be arranged by referral.
Tree Line employs a combination of treatment modalities and services, including CBT, relapse prevention, opiate recovery, group and individual therapy and educational programs for a mandatory 30 hours a week—more if considered necessary. Each client has a minimum of one individual session a week, supplemented by AA, NA, Celebrate Recovery and/or SMART Recovery meetings.
The day typically begins at 6:30 am with wake-up and breakfast, followed by the first meeting at 8 am and more throughout the day until 9 pm. Issues related to substance abuse and mental health are addressed in seminars for men and women, family counseling and education. Family members are invited to participate in counseling provided the client is comfortable with their presence.
Alumni provide peer support services and clients are encouraged to attend AA and NA meetings during and after residential treatment.
The staff-to-client ratio is one-to-two. Tree Line professional staff includes a registered nurse, a certified nurse’s assistant, a licensed vocational nurse, a psychologist and a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), along with peer recovery specialists and the program director.
There are special groups and programs for seniors, older adults and DUI offenders in addition to criminal justice groups. Special language services and assistance for the hearing-impaired are also offered.
Tree Line teaches life skills including cooking, dish washing, cleaning, ironing, washing clothes and grocery shopping.
As the first addiction recovery center in Hancock County, Tree Line Recovery Center brings intensive residential treatment to individuals who formerly had to travel elsewhere for help with substance abuse issues and addiction. With a low staff-to-client ratio and a hefty dose of life skills education in addition to a variety of treatment methods, Tree Line is undoubtedly a welcome addition to this community and its residents.
