ABOUT HEALTH RECOVERY SERVICES – RURAL WOMEN’S RECOVERY PROGRAM

Nestled in the foothills of southeastern Ohio, Rural Women’s Recovery Program (RWRP) provides long-term, residential treatment for women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Part of Health Recovery Services, an Ohio-based mental health and substance abuse treatment provider, RWRP is one of two residential facilities operated by the organization. To help implement parenting skills learned at the facility, RWRP allows mothers to bring children ages five and younger to treatment.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To guide clinicians in forming an individualized plan of care, clients participate in an initial assessment before beginning treatment. The assessment identifies specific issues and helps clinicians set treatment goals.

RWRP blends evidence-based treatment methods with 12-step principles in the supportive setting of a therapeutic community. The average length of residential treatment is approximately 120 days, though women may stay longer if clinicians determine a need for additional care.

Clients adhere to a structured schedule of gender-specific group counseling, individual therapy sessions, and education classes on addiction. According to the facility’s website, these educational groups address root causes, including “biological, psychological, social and spiritual factors of addiction.”

Clients also attend multiple on-site and off-site 12-step meetings weekly and are introduced to members of the community. Along with core programming, clients with co-occurring mental health disorders may also receive regular psychiatric evaluations, mental health counseling, and ongoing medication management to alleviate symptoms.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to RWRP’s website, the facility employs a multidisciplinary team of medical, clinical, and support staff. Personnel may include medical doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, mental health and substance abuse counselors, social workers, family therapists, and social workers. The four individuals polled by Rehabs.com gave the staff an average rating of 4.5 out of five stars.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Rural Women's Recovery Program’s facility is set on 40 acres in a pastoral, therapeutic setting and provides childcare services for clients during treatment sessions. Although no specific information is offered concerning living arrangements and facility amenities, the four individuals polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing submitted an average rating of 4.75 out of five stars for the cleanliness and upkeep of the facility.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The three former clients surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing provided mixed opinions of the facility. Two of the three alumni reviewers gave four and five out of five stars for the program’s ability to treat co-occurring disorders and the staff’s level of training and experience. The three alumni consistently gave three-star ratings for the program’s holistic offerings.

“The employees here are wonderful. This is in the middle of no where and very nature driven,” one anonymous alum wrote. Supporting this opinion, the other anonymous alum simply wrote “Great treatment.”

While two of the three alumni praised many aspects of the facility, one felt programming lacked individualized treatment. “I didn't feel connected to any of the counselors---I didn't feel like it was personal at all--they never knew me. I was just an addict,” the anonymous alum wrote. The alum also gave only two stars for the quality of individual counseling and the amount of exercise/leisure opportunities. In addition, they felt the program did not empower them to take charge of their behavior.

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

The sole loved one surveyed by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing shared the positive opinions expressed by the two alumni. The grandchild of a client, B.J.B., offered high ratings of four and five stars for all metrics, including the facility’s staff support and its level of family involvement. “I believe this program worked due to the last of any outside influence such as tv and cell phones. she earned the phone calls she made. Got constant treatment and counseling. Very health related also,” the loved one wrote.

FINANCING

RWRP accepts most private insurance plans, HMO’s (CareSource, Molina, and Unison), and Medicaid.

Great treatment.

There was a lot of "busy wok" meaning worksheets and groups were lead always by a counselor. It wasn't individual based, it was group-based. Individual counseling always had paperwork--it was more like information gathering and the purpose for the information was unclear to me. I didn't feel connected to any of the counselors---I didn't feel like it was personal at all--they never knew me. I was just an addict.

They don't let you out without believing you are ready and have long range plans. The employees here are wonderful. This is in the middle of no where and very nature driven.
