Oak House for Women-Residential

Oak House is a 16-bed facility that provides long-term, non-medical, residential substance abuse treatment for women in all stages of life. The program is designed to accommodate pregnant women, women of child bearing age, and women with dependent children. The program is unique in that children 3 and under may accompany their mothers to treatment.

Oak House offers a home-like atmosphere that has been designed to provide residents with a structured, nurturing environment in which the resident can develop the skills, insight and support necessary to achieve long-term sobriety

Residential treatment counselors, along with input from the individual, will develop a plan that will address their needs for housing, relationships, vocational training, child care, education, mental health and physical health. Workforce preparation helps women completing treatment to receive career counseling and skill development. Women are connected with a host of supportive services including training, résumé help, job coaching, and links to full-time employment.

Inherent in meeting the personal and social needs of each woman is the daily process and dynamic of living in a supportive, safe environment where newly acquired behaviors and social skills can be utilized, further enhancing recovery after treatment.

The Mike Link Driver Intervention Program is held at beautiful Camp Burton in Geauga County. No matter the season, it is a place to get away from the challenges of your busy life and focus on yourself. There is time to reflect, learn, understand – and even have a laugh or two.

The residential cottages, meeting rooms and dining facilities are all located on the 200 acre camp grounds.

The Mike Link Driver Intervention Program is a state certified driver intervention program conducted by licensed professionals as part of Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers, Inc.

The seventy-two hour program is an alternative to jail as stipulated in the impaired motorist sections of the Ohio Revised Code.

Individual and group counseling help participants focus on both the conviction and the problems that caused it.

An individual screening helps participants distinguish between “social use” and “problem use.”

The Mike Link Driver Intervention Program is first and foremost a teaching program. Our staff members have a wide range of professional and personal experience in the areas of substance abuse.

The program begins at 4:30 PM on Thursday and concludes at 5:00PM on Sunday.

Throughout the entire weekend, a professional lead counselor provides education, encourages discussion, invites questions, and helps participants gain personal insight beyond the legal consequences of the circumstance that brought them to the program.

This program is for individuals struggling with opiate addiction and withdrawal. It is a non-narcotic management of opiate withdrawal to provide an alternative to suboxone and provides medications to assist individuals with the intensely uncomfortable, but not life threatening, withdrawal symptoms.

Population(s) Served

The MAT program utilizes evidenced based practices at an appropriate level of care for a minimum of 12-18 months. The program helps individuals manage an opiate addiction consisting of:
Medication,
Counseling, and
other support.
The medication Naltrexone helps reduce problems of intense cravings, increasing the individual’s ability to engage in treatment and focus on recovery. Naltrexone is different from other medications used to treat opiate addiction in that it blocks the euphoric or sedative effects of opiates. This helps reduce relapse potential for individuals. In addition, it does not create a new addiction and there is no potential for abuse.
Naltrexone is only prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan and individuals are expected to participate in a therapeutic level of care at Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers, such as outpatient or residential treatment. An assessment by Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers’ licensed clinician and health care provider is the first step in the Medication Assisted Treatment Program.

Population(s) Served

For individuals seeking a safe, sober and healthy living environment following the completion of primary treatment, the Center offers Recovery Housing. These residential, single-family homes provide additional support to promote recovery from alcohol and drugs. With self-determined lengths of stay, residency is designed to be transitional and to afford the individual sufficient time and resources with which to establish solid, independent and productive living arrangements.
