They didn't make me feel comfortable in the least; they refused to give me help even when they knew I was suffering, it is not a good place to receive help, the advice I received in this place was useless. Not recommended.
I feel that the employees were disrespectful,unprofessional,and need to take training courses on how to deal with addiction. And don't get me started about how they did not follow patient hippo laws protocols. I wouldn't even refer my worst enemy to a place like this to get treatment. You will end up coming out worst then you where b4 you went in.
If you need help with addiction, this is the place to go. The work team at Talbert House help me to become sober since November 2016, they saved my life. Thanks to all the great staff who were friendly and helpful during my recovery process.
Have a loved one that went thru program. They want you to open up to them but the councilors on last month to month and a half then they are gone the place is nasty undercooked food tables nasty dining area full of knats I hope it helps some people but it’s more less a tax dollar money grab
It's inconsistent all packets which isn't real life the counselors don't stay and when they get new ones most time they don't help a bit. I definitely didn't get along with my counselor she tries to be passive aggressive in a not noticed way but we see it. I hope they get better counselors

Psychotropic Medication:

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient's mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person's mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

Level of Care:



Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Intensive Outpatient:

Depending upon their needs, individuals may be sentenced to complete the ADAPT intensive outpatient program (IOP) after completing a residential substance use disorder program, or they may be sentenced to the IOP program directly by the court, without first completing residential treatment. The ADAPT Intensive Outpatient program consists of three hours of group treatment, four days per week for an average of eight to sixteen weeks. In addition to groups, clients participate in individual counseling sessions with their primary counselor at least twice monthly. Family, couples, and conjoint counseling sessions are scheduled with the primary counselor as needed or requested by the client.

Individualized Treatment:

Certain drug and alcohol rehabs have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

Aftercare Support:

Clients are required to participate in continuing care groups from the time they complete IOP until they graduate successfully from drug court. Clients continue to attend individual counseling sessions at least once per month and sober support meetings at least 3 times per week. Typically, clients attend continuing care for six to twelve months after completing IOP. Initially, the frequency of group participation is for one hour twice per week (CC 2x). Depending upon their ongoing needs and progress in treatment, clients who are currently in continuing care once per week may be recommended for graduation from the drug court program by the treatment and probation teams.


CCHB ADAPT Outpatient is the primary provider of outpatient substance abuse treatment for Hamilton County Drug Court program participants. ADAPT Outpatient provides a continuum of outpatient substance use disorder treatment services including both intensive and non-intensive outpatient levels of care. Available services include group, individual, conjoint, and family counseling, case management (including linkage to mental health, housing, medical, and dental services when needed), frequent random drug testing, vocational/educational assistance as needed, and linkage to community self-help recovery support groups.


Participation of clients in 12 Step sober support groups is a continuing requirement of the outpatient treatment program. Attendance logs of community NA, AA, or other recovery support group meetings are required of each client. A brief description of the meeting site, date and time is required. The establishment of an interpersonal support network of recovering individuals in the community is essential to the individual’s continuing recovery. Therefore, clients are expected to obtain a 12 Step support group sponsor who will participate in a conjoint session with themselves and their primary counselor prior to advancing to the continuing care phase of treatment.

Treatment Focus:


Dual Diagnosis:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Substance Abuse:

Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Therapy Programs:


Family Therapy:

Research clearly demonstrates that recovery is far more successful and sustainable when loved ones like family members participate in rehab and substance abuse treatment. Genetic factors may be at play when it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental health issues. Family dynamics often play a critical role in addiction triggers, and if properly educated, family members can be a strong source of support when it comes to rehabilitation.

Individual Therapy:

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is a way of getting nicotine into the bloodstream without smoking. It uses products that supply low doses of nicotine to help people stop smoking. The goal of therapy is to cut down on cravings for nicotine and ease the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal.

Group Therapy:

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Experiential Therapy:

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional talk therapy by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Nutrition Therapy:

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.

Couples Therapy:

Whether a marriage or other committed relationship, an intimate partnership is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Drug and alcohol addiction affects both members of a couple in deep and meaningful ways, as does rehab and recovery. Couples therapy and other couples-focused treatment programs are significant parts of exploring triggers of addiction, as well as learning how to build healthy patterns to support ongoing sobriety.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
