Braking Point Recovery Center

Braking Point Recovery Center


With three locations in Ohio, Braking Point Recovery Center (BPRC) offers a wide range of treatment services to individuals struggling with addiction. The Youngstown facility, which is about 10 minutes from Interstate 80, offers a number of outpatient treatment options and specialty services for adults, as well as detox services.


All clients receive a comprehensive assessment prior to admission to determine the appropriate level of care. Outpatient programs include day treatment, which typically lasts 10 to 14 days and serves as a short step-down from residential treatment, before clients are admitted into a structured outpatient program that is more long-term. Usually those individuals will move into the intensive outpatient program (IOP), which lasts eight weeks and meets for three hours a day, three times a week. Both day treatment and IOP include individual counseling, group therapy, and case management services as needed.

There is also a lower-intensity outpatient group that consists of eight sessions total — two group counseling sessions, two one-on-one therapy sessions, and four addiction education sessions.

An eight-week continuing care program is available to all successful graduates. The program includes a weekly two-hour group in the morning or early evening.

Other treatment offerings at the Youngstown facility include a 72-hour driver’s intervention program, medicated assisted treatment (M.A.T.), access to supportive housing, family therapy, and a family program.


There is currently no information provided by the facility regarding its treatment staff; however, the one alum surveyed by at the time of this writing gave the facility five out of five stars for its level of staff support and four stars for its staff’s level of training and experience.


An on-site wellness center is available for client use. Clients can be trained individually and/or in a small group settings to improve their overall health during their recovery. Yoga and spinning classes are also offered.


Casey, the one former client polled by to date, gave Braking Point Youngstown mostly positive reviews, awarding the facility four or five out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness, its cleanliness, its overall quality of counseling, its frequency and consistency of meetings, its member empowerment and safety, and its overall quality of group counseling. “There was structure and discipline which I need right now,” they wrote.


While there is currently no information provided on the facility’s website regarding its costs, the one alum polled by to date indicated Braking Point’s treatment and services were worth their cost.
