The Admissions Process At Ohio Recovery Center

Our admissions team can help you decide if ORC is the right treatment facility for your care needs through a free pre-screening. We also provide evaluations and assessments to help determine your treatment needs and goals and how best to meet them.

At Ohio Recovery Center, we strive to provide a smooth, stress-free, client-centered treatment experience from beginning to end. Your journey starts with a pre-screening to help identify your needs and ensure that our facility is right for you. 

If you do choose ORC, we can plan your treatment start date. Shortly after arriving at our facility, a full assessment will help identify all of your care needs and familiarize your care team with your own personal goals in recovery. Using this information, an individualized treatment plan will be provided.

Pre-Screening: Is ORC Right For You?

When you contact us, one of our care specialists will offer you a pre-screening to identify your overall addiction or mental health treatment needs. The pre-screening includes general questions about your mental health and reasons for reaching out to us. 

It may cover topics such as:

  • the mental and physical symptoms you are experiencing
  • your current and past substance use, including which substances you are currently using, how long you have been using them, the amounts you are using, etc.
  • whether you have been diagnosed with any mental or physical health conditions
  • whether you have received mental health or addiction treatment in the past

You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about addiction and mental health care, our facility, our care teams, our credentials, or anything else that may be on your mind.

Verification Of Benefits

If you have health insurance, we can also provide a verification of benefits (VOB). For this, we’ll collect your insurance information, including the name of your provider and your policy number, and verify that we accept your insurance. If we don’t, we’ll help you explore other ways to cover treatment costs

Next, we will explain your treatment options and help you determine which level of care will work best for you.

Determining The Level Of Care You Need

Addiction affects everyone differently, and a range of levels of addiction care are available to meet people where they are. Similarly, people with mental health disorders benefit from a variety of care levels, including residential treatment for people experiencing a mental health crisis or looking to prevent one.

You may need inpatient treatment if:

  • you have a moderate-to-severe addiction or other mental health condition
  • you have, or may have, addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder
  • you lack a strong support system at home
  • you pose a danger to yourself or others

The inpatient programs at ORC provide 24/7 support and comprehensive care, including both evidence-based and experiential treatment for lasting recovery. If you choose us, we can schedule a date for your arrival, let you know what to bring and what not to bring, and answer any remaining questions.

If you have a milder condition or need to remain living at home while receiving treatment, we can recommend an outpatient program or therapist.

Initial Assessment

Soon after arriving at Ohio Recovery Center and getting settled, you will receive an initial assessment from our team of medical and behavioral health professionals. They will work collaboratively with you to put together a treatment plan that addresses your own goals and preferences while incorporating professional advice.

Biopsychosocial & Safety Assessments

The initial assessment generally includes a biopsychosocial assessment as well as a safety assessment. 

The biopsychosocial assessment helps your care team get a full picture of the biological, psychological, and social factors impacting your health in order to address all of your treatment needs. It usually includes an interview or questionnaires as well as a medical exam. 

The safety assessment helps us determine if you are at risk of harming yourself or anyone else so that we can provide the appropriate supervision and care to ensure a safe recovery community for all.

Personal Goals & Preferences

Your individualized treatment plan will also take into consideration your own goals and preferences during recovery. For example, some people place achieving financial independence high on their list of goals, while others may want to focus strongly on resolving trauma.

Preferences that we may be able to accommodate during your stay include gender-specific residences, specific therapies, virtual or in-person visits with family members, access to an MP3 player to listen to music, and more.

Your Personalized Treatment Plan

Our comprehensive addiction and mental health treatment programs at ORC provide a multidisciplinary approach for long-term recovery. All services are provided by highly qualified medical and clinical professionals, many of whom are in recovery themselves and understand what it takes to achieve well-being following a crisis.

Your treatment plan may include:

  • medical detox
  • mental health stabilization
  • individual and group therapy
  • medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder or alcohol use disorder
  • medication management for primary or co-occurring mental health conditions
  • support groups
  • case management
  • wellness activities, such as yoga, meditation, and journaling
  • aftercare planning
