Treatment Center Setting
Arrow Passage Recovery Philosophy
Our facilities at Arrow Passage Recovery are well maintained and held to the highest standards. Our treatment program and therapy approach are not like any other. We offer 1:1 therapy and individual attention the entire process. Arrow Passage Recovery is based in Ohio for a reason. We offer our guests a peaceful, serene atmosphere and the ideal surroundings for making a fresh new start. We know that recovering from drugs and/or alcohol is not simple. It is a process and something that takes time. At our facilities, you will be moved through phases. In these phases, you will accomplish different things on your way to living a healthy life of sobriety.
Areas of Specialization
The overall goal of individualized treatment plans assigned to clients at Arrow Passage Recovery is to get to the root causes of excessive drug or alcohol use. Each person has specific and unique manifestations of addiction or alcoholism. Our professional staff is prepared and qualified to properly address each individual issue that any given person may have.
The basic notion behind holistic health is that the dependence on illicit substances goes beyond the physical addiction. This means that merely addressing the physical aspect is not enough; there are spiritual, social and physical needs that need to be addressed in order to make a whole body recovery.
Given the nutritional standing of most recovering addicts, it’s surprising that proper nutrition is not emphasized more in recovery programs. Mounting evidence points to one emerging consensus: nutritional therapy can significantly help those recovering from addiction. It seems like common sense, but proper nutrition has the potential to make those in recovery feel better both mentally and physically.

ABOUT ARROW PASSAGE RECOVERY
Located in Massillon, Ohio, about a 40 minutes’ drive south of Akron, Arrow Passage Recovery (APR) runs a full range of drug and alcohol treatment services and for adults. Combining a holistic approach with traditional 12-step principles, APR provides detox services and highly personalized care through its residential and outpatient programs.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Many clients begin treatment with medically-assisted detox to help with severe withdrawal symptoms. Upon completion of this initial stage, clients may proceed with inpatient treatment, with average stays ranging from 28 days to six months. Typically set for eight weeks, PHP and IOP care options provide clients with step-down options, though they’re accessible directly as well.
Across all levels of care, treatment programs blend 12-step based participation with individual and group counseling. Clients also experience sober fun through experiential therapies and recreational therapies. IOP groups, per the facility’s webpage, “generally do not exceed 10 people,” thereby facilitating an intimate and safe learning environment.
Across its several programs, APR staffs a clinical team of psychologists, psychiatrists, and licensed counselors. Inpatient clients and those in detox are supported by 24-hour medical and nursing attention.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Pictures posted on the facility’s webpage show a large mansion with an outdoor swimming pool. The residence is set on the end of a residential street and is surrounded by trees and green lawns.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni.
On Facebook, however, where APR only received five-star ratings from five individuals to date, former client Jeff proudly shared his success story. “When I came to Arrow I was broken, tired and beat up. After a few short months at the facility I was able to regain my health, discover who I am as a man and can say today that I love myself. With the amazing care and compassion of the staff I finally feel that I'm worth it! Everyday was full of growth and love. Today I am able to be a father to my two boys and a husband. Arrow helped teach me to be the happy and sober man that my family deserves! So, thank you Arrow Passage, me and my family are forever grateful!”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The single anonymous loved one polled by Rehabs.com gave only four- and five-star ratings for more than a dozen metrics evaluated, such as the counseling options available and the level of family inclusion.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Rehabs.com has also received positive feedback from a group of five employees, citing “caring” staff and “family-oriented” programs as facility strengths. “They are the best group of people I’ve ever worked with,” added reviewer Jr. Yet they also listed a “lack of planned weekend activities during winter months” as a downfall.
APR accepts most “major insurance companies” and allows prospective clients to verify their insurance benefits online.
