The Central Community Health Board of Hamilton County Focus:

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers 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.

Alcoholism

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.

Mental Health and Substance Abuse

A combined mental health and substance abuse treatment center has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track.

Rehab Services:

Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)

They offer a comprehensive bio psycho-social approach which includes individualized assessment and treatment planning. A multidisciplinary team of qualified health professionals provides our patients with the highest level of methadone treatment services.

Opioid Dependence Treatment

Opioids are any drugs based on the chemical composition of opium. An opiate is a synthetic (man-made) version of an opioid, also known as a narcotic. Opiate pain medications include prescription painkillers, like Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet. Other opioids include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone, and heroin. Dependence or addiction to opioids is treated in a similar fashion to other drug and alcohol addictions, with an eye towards helping the body detox safely before other treatment commences.

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.

What does The Central Community Health Board of Hamilton County offer?

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. Adult Outpatient Services (AOS) provides individual and group counseling/therapy to adult (18 and older) residents of Hamilton County, and adult Medicaid residents of the State of Ohio, who have a primary DSM IV TR or IDC-9 mental health diagnosis.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Crisis stabilization is a 24 hour, short term residential program that offers the client and family a “cooling off” period from a particular crisis. This short term intervention is designed to enable crisis stabilization staff an opportunity to make good, appropriate assessments and interventions that may prevent a longer out of home disruption.

Intervention Services

Intervention Services helps family or friends of addicts stage an intervention, which is a meeting in which loved ones share their concerns and attempt to get an addict into treatment. Professional intervention specialists can help loved ones organize, gather, and communicate with an addict. They can guide intervention participants in describing the damage the addict’s behavior is causing and that outside help is necessary to address the addiction. The ideal outcome of an intervention is for the addict to go to rehab and get the help they need.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

The Central Community Health Board (CCHB) Community Psychiatric Supportive Treatment Service (CPST services or Case management) provides community based services to individuals living with severe and persistent mental illness. Case management/CPST services are provided directly by staff who are generally unlicensed but classified as Qualified Mental Health Specialists. Their services are directed toward adults 18 years and up. The purpose/intent of CPST services is to provide specific, measurable, and individualized services to each person served.

Family Program

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.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community  programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Couples Treatment

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.

The Central Community Health Board of Hamilton County Highlights:

Substance Abuse Counseling utilizes Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors and Licensed Social Workers with a scope of practice that includes Chemical Dependency. Their service assists patients in understanding the dynamics of addiction and recovery while increasing the motivation for recovery. Patients are seen on a weekly, or monthly basis depending on the needs of the individual. Their counselors are committed to providing support while the patients are stabilized on an effective dose of methadone.
Services for Pregnant Women with opioid dependency is offered through the Mothers on Methadone Program or (MOM). Methadone Treatment is safe for the baby, keeps mothers free of withdrawal, and gives mothers a chance to take care of themselves. Pregnant women may be admitted to methadone treatment, even with less than one-year history of opiate addiction. Taking methadone during pregnancy can reduce the chance of miscarriage and premature labor. Newborns will have methadone in their bodies, but studies show that they can be weaned with no adverse effects. During pregnancy the patient is placed on the lowest effective dose of methadone and should eliminate or reduce cravings for illicit opiates and will prevent withdrawal.
The Partial Hospitalization Program Center is designed to provide intensive therapy and psychiatric stabilization to support men and women ages 18 and older. PHP allows clients to get the therapy they need while still maintaining interaction with family, friends and community. Central Community Health Board provides a competent and experienced treatment team including a psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, social worker, and registered nurse. This team of professionals assists patients in regaining control of their lives and reaching their ultimate goal of achieving the highest possible level of function.
