ABOUT LAKE-GEAUGA RECOVERY CENTERS, INC. – LAKEHOUSE
Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers is a behavioral health agency with various locations throughout Ohio. Featuring long-term, non-medical residential treatment, the organization’s Lake House offers residential treatment for men struggling with chemical dependency through counseling, vocational training, and aftercare services.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To alleviate pain associated with intense, non-threatening withdrawal symptoms to opioid addiction, men may be prescribed medication (Naltrexone) prior to beginning residential treatment.
Residential treatment programs are built in a way that encourages men to apply what they learn in a supportive, social environment. Depending on their needs, men may receive assistance vis-à-vis their housing, educational, and vocational needs, including resume preparation, job coaching, and links to full-time employment.
While attending individual, group, and family therapy, men pick up critical independent living skills, such as budgeting, and have access to church, YMCA, 12-step meetings, and aftercare services.
Lake House employs residential treatment counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
There is currently limited information provided for the 16-bed facility regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. The two individuals polled by Best-rehabs.com to date were divided on the matter: one gave four- and five-star ratings for the facility’s quality of meals and accommodations, respectively, while the other gave only two and one stars for these categories.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The one former client polled by Best-rehabs.com to date shared their disappointing experience. The anonymous client, who went to treatment to fulfill a court order, felt that treatment “did not work” and offered low one- and two-star ratings for the staff’s level of experience and training, the respect shown to clients, and the effectiveness of individual counseling.
Yet on Facebook, which the facility may manage, the facility received a perfect five-star rating from seven individuals as of this writing, alum Angela proudly posted: “My time at Oak House saved my life! Thank you Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The anonymous loved one polled by Best-rehabs.com to date referred to programming as “very organized and effective” and the aftercare program as “great,” but felt that clients were given “too much down time.” The loved one gave perfect five-star ratings for the staff’s level of experience and training and its counseling options, as well a four stars for the amount of family participation.
While it does not publish its costs online, the facility accepts Medicaid and takes into consideration each client’s financial situation.
