ABOUT THE WOODS AT PARKSIDE
Set on eleven acres of land in rural Gahanna, Ohio, The Woods at Parkside offers a comprehensive suite of treatment services for individuals struggling with substance abuse. Clients may opt for residential treatment, partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and continuing care. Additionally, specialized care is available for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Clients begin their treatment with a clinical assessment, the results of which determine the details of their individualized treatment plan. The Woods bases much of its treatment on 12-step philosophy, but also incorporates psycho-therapeutic counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, literature and education, and group therapy. A heavy emphasis is placed on family therapy and involvement.
Following residential care, partial hospitalization offers the most intensive treatment through eight-hour sessions seven days a week. Most clients remain at this level of care for 10 days. Intensive outpatient care, which may be used as a step down option, consists of three three-hour sessions each week, and most clients remain at this level of treatment for 18 to 24 sessions. Continuing care, which is offered free of charge, consists of weekly, two-hour sessions. Clients may remain in continuing care for up to two years.
The Woods’ clinical team includes a physician, registered nurses, licensed social workers, licensed chemical dependency counselors, and licensed professional clinical counselors.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Reviews from loved ones are more negative. Not all Rehabs.com survey respondents noted that they would recommend the facility to others, and some respondents used their reviews to issue warnings to potential clients. One anonymous reviewer described their best friend’s experience as “horrific.” “There was a lot of gambling on site and drugs being snuck in by staff & outsiders who came only for day programs. Residents & staff carried on ‘relationships’.Staff refused to allow her to make ANY phone calls for 2 weeks,” they wrote.
Several loved ones also mentioned a high rate of staff turnover and a poor approach to heroin addiction “My brother has been there 2 weeks and they completely changed staff to times. stability is key and parkside seems unable to provide it at all,” A.R. wrote.
Still, some friends and family members had more balanced views of the facility. “I was able to stay in contact with my loved one and his counselor. It was disorganized at times. My loved one was successfully completely his treatment plan but still using, which falls on him and not the treatment center but I felt like they were churning people in and out,” Jessica wrote.
According to the facility’s website, The Woods accepts self-pay and most major insurance plans.
