ABOUT TRANSITIONS, INC. RESIDENTIAL CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY TREATMENT
The Women’s Residential Addiction Program (WRAP) in Covington, Ky., provides alcohol and chemical dependency residential treatment for those in northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. WRAP is owned by Transitions, Inc. that operates an outpatient facility and a medical seven to 10 day detoxification program.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at the Women’s Residential Addiction Program (WRAP) begins with a comprehensive substance abuse disorder assessment. Treatment is abstinence-based and encourages participation in Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. Clients will participate in individual and group therapy sessions and will learn basic life skills and budgeting.
Clients who are able to work are required to do so and will participate in community service. They will also have access to employment readiness resources. Residents will be randomly drug tested. Aftercare counseling is also offered.
Residential treatment typically lasts 90 to 120 days. The women’s program allows children under 12 to stay with their mothers and pregnant and new mothers can stay in a newborn home for nine months.
To be hired, counselors must have a bachelor’s degree, preferably in psychology, social work, or related sciences. Transitions also required employees to be certified or working toward certification though the state of Kentucky or Ohio.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
There is typically a two- to four-month wait list for residential treatment. The facility’s website indicates that the WRAP House has a grant in place to improve common areas, but is fundraising to improve bedrooms. “After 24 years of helping women in recovery, our WRAP House is in dire need of repairs and updates,” the website states. Childcare services are offered on the WRAP campus.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Three alumni gave mixed reviews of the WRAP staff, though all three indicated that they’d recommend treatment. “Not enough resources and/or help with all the issues dealing with addiction,” wrote Tara in a representative review. She added that the center was “family oriented” and commented: “I do believe the intention of the Wrap house is to help people.”
An anonymous alum who attended aftercare services wrote: “They gave me the tools to live a clean and sober life.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
At this time of writing, two anonymous Best-rehabs.com reviewers gave four-star ratings to family participation and connectivity. Both gave two out of five stars to treatment for co-occurring disorders and experienced staff members. Both reviewers mentioned staffing problems. “Staff not trained for the type of work, too lax on rules lack of control,” wrote one reviewer. The other added: “More staff would be helpful.” They added: They provide adequate services in a high needs area.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
Though no current or former staff members have responded to a Best-rehabs.com survey to date, reviews on third-party website reveal mixed opinions. On Indeed, four reviewers from the Covington location gave three- and four-star ratings, mentioning problems with upper management. “Employees lacked passion though and clients were neglected over paper work,” wrote a former employee.
