Q. How do I set up an appointment to get into your program?

The first step is to contact our intake department at (513) 386-4735 (Cassie) or (513) 405-1183 (Jan). We receive a high volume of calls, so it is possible you might be sent to voicemail. If this happens, please speak clearly and slowly and leave your name and a good contact phone number or numbers where we can reach you. We will call you back!

Q. Do you take Medicaid / private insurance?

Yes! Adams Recovery Center (ARC) takes Medicaid and most private insurance. Please contact us to determine if your insurance qualifies. We also accept private pay.

Q. I want to come in as soon as possible for an assessment. How long is the wait?

Adams Recovery Center prides itself having several qualified licensed staff who can provide an assessment, sometimes the same day you make contact. We provide assessments daily for both in-patient and intensive outpatient. Please contact us to speak with our intake department to schedule an assessment.

Q. I’m not sure what type of treatment I need. What do I do?

Q. Will I be admitted the same day I am assessed?

The first step in determining eligibility for the program is to speak with our intake department. We will review your intake, and, if eligible, you will be given an assessment day and time. When you are assessed by one of our competent team members, we will inform you if any of our program offerings will be a good fit for you. All admission determinations will be made pending the final outcome of the assessment.

Please note: If you are not appropriate for our program, we will make referrals for you.

Q. What if I have a co-occurring mental health disorder? Will I be allowed in the program?

Each individual is assessed based on her or his needs. Depending on the severity of the mental/emotional health needs, most clients are able to enter Adams Recovery Center. Your assessment counselor will discuss your needs with you and help you determine the right choice.

Q. Is Adams Recovery Center just another 12-Step program?

No! Adams Recovery Center does provide voluntary sober support meetings (open to both clients and the community), held on a daily basis in our facility. However, the foundation of Adams Recovery Center’s clinical program is evidenced-based cognitive-behavior and rational-emotive behavior modality (Hazelden) blended with the Therapeutic Community model. Adams Recovery Center offers individual and group counseling with individualized service planning tailored for your needs, as “one-treatement-plan-fits-all” approaches do not work.

This is a community based off accountability, respect and dedication to sustained sobriety. In a program based off community, we set a schedule of five hours per day of group counseling.

Q. Will I receive individual counseling?

Yes, our program individualizes each client’s programming. You will receive individual counseling once per week.

Adams Recovery Center is an at-will facility. Anyone who is a resident in our program is able to freely leave at any time they wish. We encourage all residents to remain in treatment and to make positive changes in their lives.

Q. Am I permitted to leave the premises?

Clients are permitted to make and keep appointments coordinated with their counselor and medical staff. Adams Recovery Center offers five hours of treatment per day, in addition to individual counseling sessions. Treatment should always, of course, come first, and as treatment is a priority, Adams Recovery Center’s program would not permit for residential clients to secure/maintain employment.
