Residents of Bridgetown and the greater Cincinnati area have excellent access to substance abuse treatment, including at least four local outpatient services as well as nearby inpatient options. Residential care is also available to the north at Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

Bridgetown, also referred to as North Bridgetown, is a prosperous area in Green Township, a close residential suburb of Cincinnati

Although Bridgetown has been rated as one of the best places to live in Ohio, it nevertheless faces severe public health challenges in the form of widespread drug abuse and chronic alcohol and drug addiction.

Drug & Alcohol Treatment Programs In Bridgetown, Ohio

There are at least five licensed and accredited outpatient treatment facilities for substance use disorder within five miles of Bridgetown. In addition, other outpatient and inpatient treatment providers are also located in close proximity to the Bridgetown area.

This means that adults and teens in Bridgetown can readily access a wide variety of drug and alcohol rehab services, including:

  • medical detox services
  • intensive and non-intensive outpatient treatment
  • short- and long-term inpatient treatment (including women’s only inpatient care)
  • behavioral therapy
  • dual diagnosis care
  • medication-assisted treatment
  • aftercare support

Medical Detox

Recovering from alcohol or drug addiction can be a challenging task, and one that often starts with the difficult and sometimes dangerous process of withdrawal.

For this reason, experts strongly recommend that those who have developed a chemical dependency first participate in a medical detoxification program where they can safely move past the initial effects of drug or alcohol discontinuation in a controlled setting.

However, detoxification is only the first step in the recovery process and cannot replace a structured rehabilitation program.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment centers provide a range of programs to best cater to the needs of every participant. In Bridgetown, these options include regular outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and partial hospitalization programs (PHPs).

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient rehab centers are safe, comfortable, and highly structured environments that remove participants from the temptations and habits waiting for them back home and instead provide space, clarity, and compassion.

Individual and group counseling, peer support, behavioral therapy, family therapy, medication-assisted treatment, and alternative treatments are some of the specific interventions that may be provided as a part of a short-term or long-term inpatient addiction treatment plan.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Substance use disorders often occur along with other mental or behavioral health conditions like PTSD, ADHD, depression, and anxiety or panic disorders, and others. Unless they are also treated, these comorbidities can have a lasting impact long-term recovery and mental wellness.

To address both substance use disorders as well other co-occurring mental illnesses, many inpatient and outpatient treatment facilities provide dual diagnosis treatment services that feature counseling, use of medications, or other forms of treatment as required.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

The FDA has authorized certain drugs (including methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, and others) for the treatment of either opioid use disorder or alcohol use disorder. 

Long-term use of these MAT medications can have a positive impact on the recovery process, helping to reduce cravings and other withdrawal symptoms as well as reduce the likelihood of relapse.


Many drug rehab centers in Ohio support their graduates with resources after their programs are complete. 

These aftercare programs may include job placement or coaching, sober living housing, follow-up and case-management services, and facilitation of peer support groups like AA or NA.
