ABOUT TRANSITIONS, INC.
Transitions, Inc. was founded in 1969 to serve vulnerable populations struggling with substance abuse, and now operates from numerous locations in northern Kentucky. Services include gender-specific residential treatment and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). A non-medical detox program is available on-site and typically lasts seven to 10 days.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Transitions offers abstinence-based treatment that combines 12-step work with individual and group therapy, plus basic life skills including budgeting and employment readiness. In the later stages of treatment, when the client’s sobriety is beginning to stabilize, all clients eligible to work are required to do so, in addition to performing community service.
The women’s residential program lasts three to nine months and allows children under 12 to stay with their mothers during treatment. A licensed childcare center is located on-site. Pregnant women and new mothers are also admitted, as are women without children. The residential program for men lasts 90 days. There is also a six-month intensive outpatient program available to clients.
The treatment team includes certified alcohol and drug counselors. Staff members must have a bachelor’s degree, preferably in psychology or social work. Five reviewers polled by Rehabs.com rated the staff’s level of experience and training 2.6 out of five stars on average.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to a 2015 article from Cincinnati.com, the men’s residential facility has 42 beds and the residential women’s unit has 44. Eight reviewers polled by Rehabs.com rated Transitions’ accommodations and amenities and meals and nutrition both 2.7 stars on average.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
While alumni reviews for Transitions are currently limited, one anonymous alum also gave the facility five stars for treatment effectiveness on Rehabs.com and said: “They gave me the tools to live a clean and sober life.”
Transitions has received 18 five-star reviews on its (potentially vetted) Facebook page, along with one three-star and one one-star review. Three reviewers spoke positively of the facility, with alum Cory writing: “This agency saved my life. I will forever be grateful. Thank you.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Five loved ones polled by Rehabs.com recommended Transitions with 2.4 stars. They rated the facility 4.3 stars in family participation, three stars in connectivity and visitor policy and counseling options, and only 1.5 stars in holistic treatment options. Loved ones praised the facility’s family interaction and cleanliness, criticized its length, and were split on whether staff were helpful or numerous enough. One anonymous loved one wrote: “The family classes are nice. It could be cleaner. Offer better meals. And keep them in for more than a month before sending them out to work to pay 'rent'”
WHAT STAFF SAY
Staff member Kat gave Transitions just one star for treatment effectiveness adn two stars for staff’s level of experience and training, writing: “Transitions does try to do the best job they can do... The agency has many genuinely caring staff but also has staff that are not qualified for the job. They are also under staffed.”
On Glassdoor, seven reviewers left an average 2.5- out of five-star rating for Transitions, and they were 40% willing to recommend it to a friend. Reviewers wrote that Transitions had a work culture friendly to clients and employees but that upper management did a poor job implementing funds and programs.
There is currently no information provided on the facility's website or otherwise regarding its costs.
Note, like most treatment providers catering to underprivileged communities, Transitions struggles with a near-constant financial pinch, which in recent years has become much tighter; as of July 2015, the organization lost $361,000 in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Block Grant funds. The Executive Director told Cincinnati.com that the cut was likely to have a hefty impact on wait times, adding: “We’ll find a way for a while, but we can’t make up these cuts indefinitely. A number of clients will be turned away. In the middle of a heroin epidemic.” According to Transitions’ website, current wait times for residential treatment are two to four months.
