ABOUT BEHAVIORAL CONNECTIONS OF WOOD COUNTY, INC

A result of the pairing of Harbor with Behavioral Connections of Wood County in 2014, Behavioral Connection’s Devlac Hall, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, offers residential treatment for adult women who are struggling with addiction to alcohol, tobacco, and other substances. The organization as a whole provides comprehensive services for mental health and substance use disorders to those residing in Wood County.

Within Ohio, Behavioral Connections – Devlac Hall is among 21 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities that offer residential, non-hospital care and among 46 percent with specially tailored programs for adult women.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To access the services of Behavioral Connections – Devlac Hall, prospective clients must call or attend the walk-in Assessment Clinic. There they meet with a clinician, who determines the most appropriate course of treatment.

Devlac Hall’s women’s treatment program is tailored to each client’s needs, and residents typically remain on-site for 10 weeks. During their stay, women learn about addiction, effects of use, the process of recovery, and how to cope with mental health disorders.

Treatment consists of individual and group counseling, family education, educational activities, and therapeutic activities, which focus on chemical dependency and trauma. There are also women-specific workshops on relationships, abuse, self-care, and self-esteem. Loved ones are encouraged to participate in family education programs.

After clients complete the initial program, they may enroll in a six-month Extended Care Program. Priority admission is given to pregnant women.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Within the state, Harbor Behavioral Health is among 52.8 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

Devlac Hall, which is accredited by the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services, is staffed by a team of psychiatrists, licensed social workers, and certified addiction specialists, as well nurses, dietitians, and GED instructors. A physician provides weekly care to the residents.To date, the four individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com praised the staff's aptitude.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

At the time of this writing, the four former clients who reviewed Behavioral Connections – Devlac Hall for Rehabs.com submitted highly favorable impressions. The three polled on granular survey metrics reported that they would recommend the facility and offered four and five-star ratings connectivity/visitor, staff’s experience, holistic offerings, and counseling options.

They praised the staff in comments to Rehabs.com, referring to them as “friendly,” “well trained,” and “very encouraging,” and considered the approach professional, well balanced, and patient centric. “They treat the whole body, not just one specific problem,” one alum wrote.

Two reviewers suggested that the facility would benefit from additional funding, although one of them, K.M.F., added: “I had experience with another rehab to which I could compare Devlac, and later realized that Devlac, while not terribly well funded, does a lot with what it has.”

On secondary sites, Behavioral Connections received mixed coverage to date: 3.2 out of five stars based on five reviews on Google; and 2.5 stars based on 35 reviews of Harbor on Facebook, which the facility may manage. [1] [2] Of note, those who posted reviews on both sites referred to the organization as a whole rather than specifically to Devlac Hall.

In all, many reviewers (alumni, loved ones, unspecified) appreciated the helpful staff, such as five-star reviewer Baylee on Google, who wrote “The staff here is amazing!” and Maura, who wrote “The staff here really cares about you!”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The three loved ones who reviewed Behavioral Connections – Devlac Hall for Rehabs.com to date submitted mixed views: two highly favorable and one mediocre to negative. One on the plus side, an anonymous loved one rated the evaluated metrics five and four stars, applauded the staff as “nice, courteous employees,” appreciated the “good group meetings,” and reported that it “really helped” their loved one.

L.H. highlighted the strong family and child orientation, along with the transportation provided, writing: “They focus on the real problems of addiction as they know addiction is a symptom. They do not medicate, they teach coping skills and tools.” However, S.N. had a different perspective on the facility, referring to it as “bleak” and “anything but warm, welcoming, or particularly helpful to guide to a better life.”

FINANCING

At the time of this writing, the facility’s website does not offer information about fees and payments. However, it advises that Harbor Behavioral Health accepts Medicaid, Medicare, most insurance and private pay, and that an Admissions Specialist will ask for information about a client’s insurance coverage during the initial assessment process. To date, the four individuals polled on the matter by Rehabs.com approved of the facility's cost.

Affordability: 4/5

Devlac in Bowling Green Ohio is a bleak facility that is anything but warm, welcoming, or particularly helpful to guide to a better life. I realize many of the client have hit bottom to be there, but by their own admission their success rate is quite low. The website says 70% but one of the counselors indicated to me it was half that. She was anything but pleasant in her behavior with the clients.

Strengths: Zero Tolerance for things that might distract one from healthy recovery. Education, and participation. Staff. Weaknesses: Need more funding to further improve the facility...and to give the staff and clients more options in their everyday routine. Get outside of facility more. More regular individual counseling sessions. Im very glad i chose to go and so grateful for Devlac Hall. As you can imagine, it's difficult to adjust to any treatment program at first, but its so worth it!! You learn to take it (life) a day at a time, and learn a ton about yourself. You leave so empowered and proud of yourself that you stuck with it and most importantly, grew through it!! Recovery is a journey and if you really want it, they give you the tools and skills you need to have it! You CAN enjoy a life in recovery! Give yourself a chance... :) miracles don't usually happen overnight but they do happen, believe me.

This facility is wonderful. Very family and kid oriented. They focus on the real problems of addiction as they know addiction is a symptom. They do not medicate, they teach coping skills and tools. They providing transportation to meetings and babysitting my granddaughter so that I could visit my daughter while she was at [treatment facility].
