Women’s Services at OARC

Each phase of care at Ohio Addiction Recovery Center is gender-specific. We find that this creates the least distractions while also creating a safe space for women to relate with other women. Our levels of care include:

Women’s Detox Center

Medical detox is often the first phase of care. In 7-14 days, clients are medically supervised and treated for withdrawal symptoms. Being a small private facility, we have a total of 5 beds in our women’s detox program. This ensures comfortable and individualized attention for our clients.

Medical detox includes:

  • 24/7 nursing supervision
  • Medications for withdrawal symptoms
  • Individual counseling
  • AA, NA, and other guest speakers
  • Catered food
  • Recretations, art therapy, library, TV
  • Vaping/Smoking allowed

Learn more about our detox center.

Women’s Residential Treatment

Most women choose to enter our 45-day residential program after detox. Detox is intended to treat the physical component of addiction, while residential treatment focuses on the psychological aspect. Clients are highly encouraged to continue treatment after detox because it significantly increases chances for long term recovery. Addiction is a complex disease and detox alone is rarely sufficient to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Our women’s inpatient treatment center includes:

  • Individual and group therapy
  • Adventure therapy and excursions
  • Psychiatry
  • Life skills
  • Yoga and physical fitness
  • Catered food
  • Aftercare planning and relapse prevention education

Learn more about residential treatment center.

Outpatient Rehab For Women

After residential treatment, clients are highly encouraged to continue ongoing outpatient treatment while they transition into their normal daily lives. Early recovery can be a fragile period and continued support greatly increases chances of sustained recovery.

We offer

Intensive Outpatient (IOP): Outpatient group therapy for women, 3 days per week.

Outpatient (OP): Individual therapy with your counselor, usually once per week, up to 1 year.

Benefits of Gender-Specific Rehab For Women

Women-only drug and alcohol rehab programs offer several benefits that cater specifically to the unique needs and challenges that women may face in their journey to recovery. Some of the key advantages include:

  • Gender-specific issues: Women often have different experiences and issues related to addiction compared to men. Our programs are designed to address these gender-specific issues, such as societal expectations, cultural influences, and unique stressors.
  • Safety and comfort: Some women may feel more comfortable and safe in a women-only environment, particularly if they have experienced trauma or abuse. Having a space that is free from the presence of men can contribute to a sense of security and openness during therapy sessions.
  • Camaraderie and support: Women’s only rehab programs foster a sense of community among participants. Sharing experiences with others who have faced similar challenges can create a supportive and understanding atmosphere, enhancing the recovery process.
  • Tailored treatment approaches: Women may have different biological, psychological, and social factors influencing their addiction and recovery. Women-only programs can provide tailored treatment plans that address these unique factors, promoting more effective and personalized care.
  • Focus on holistic well-being: Our women-only rehab programs emphasize a holistic approach to recovery, addressing not only the addiction itself but also mental health, self-esteem, relationships, and overall well-being. This can contribute to a more comprehensive and long-lasting recovery.
  • Childcare support: Women often bear a disproportionate responsibility for childcare, and addiction can complicate parenting. Our program helps women become better moms and learn valuable life skills.
  • Female-centric therapies: Women may benefit from therapeutic approaches that are specifically tailored to their needs. This could include discussions on body image, self-esteem, and issues related to motherhood. Gender-specific therapies can provide a space for these topics to be addressed openly.
  • Prevention of distractions: In a women-only environment, potential distractions or dynamics related to relationships with men may be minimized. This can help individuals stay focused on their recovery without external influences that could hinder progress.

Aftercare Services

Successful completion of a drug treatment program is a major milestone. While it should be celebrated, the real work in recovery begins after the completion of formal treatment. We help women get the extra support and motivation they need to be successful in their recovery in the long term. This is obtainable thanks to outpatient, IOP, and our alumni program. Staying on the right track is much easier while in some type of treatment center in OH. One will be able to be held accountable and will continue to work on their treatment plan.

The primary goal of our women’s drug and alcohol treatment programs in Ohio is to provide all clients with relapse prevention strategies to cope with the stresses of everyday life. Additionally, our programs help women find the essential resources in their community that will help them maintain their sobriety. These programs allow newly recovering women to build their sober support networks that are crucial in maintaining a meaningful recovery.
