ABOUT NEIL KENNEDY RECOVERY CENTERS - AUSTINTOWN
Opened in 1946, Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers provides a full continuum of treatment programs for clients seeking treatment for substance abuse through its three facilities. In 1999, Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers joined Gateway Rehab, a large treatment provider that operates 22 treatment facilities throughout Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. The Austintown, Ohio location, 67 miles southeast of Cleveland, provides an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and other outpatient-based support programs.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Before beginning treatment at the Neil Kennedy Recovery Center, clients undergo an initial assessment to guide clinicians in forming an individualized treatment plan. If necessary, Gateway Rehab does utilize medication-assisted treatment (MAT) using Suboxone or Vivitrol to alleviate withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid addiction. Nearly 26% of U.S. treatment facilities use Suboxone in their treatment processes, while Vivitrol is used in 21% of facilities. Clients must be in a relatively stable medical condition for MAT treatments.
Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers’ intensive outpatient program is largely founded in 12-Step methodology. The 12-Step program is used in up to 48% of U.S. treatment facilities. To guide clients through the principles and practices of 12-Step, the program implements Twelve-Step Facilitation (TSF), a manual-based therapy that outlines the peer-led fellowship. During treatment, clients connect with others in 12-Step, study program literature (Big Book), and perform associated “step work.”
Along with an immersion into 12-Step, clients participate in individual and group counseling sessions utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). When appropriate, the program also incorporates family therapy sessions. Counseling sessions help identify the links between irrational thinking patterns and addictive behavior.
In addition to their intensive outpatient program, the Neil Kennedy Recovery Center also offers an employee-assistance program (EPA) for employers, as well as a student assistance program (SAP) for adolescents. These programs address both substance abuse and its effects on work or school performance and productivity. It is one of only 127 programs in Ohio tailored to the needs of adolescents.
The Austintown facility holds outpatient sessions in both the morning and evening on weekdays. To promote ongoing recovery, Gateway Rehab provides aftercare through its own recovery app,12:01, which offers online recovery resources. Gateway Rehab also invites graduates to seek ongoing support through its alumni association.
Neil Kennedy Recovery Centers’ outpatient programs are facilitated by licensed professional counselors. Gateway Rehab also operates its own training and research center, the Kenneth S. Ramsey Ph.D. Research and Training Institute, which provides continuing education workshops for National Board Certified Counselors (NBCC) members. It is a Joint Commission-accredited facility, which only accredits 19% of U.S. facilities.
