Recovery Resources


Recovery Resources specializes in outpatient treatment for adults and adolescents struggling with co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders. In addition to addressing chemical dependency, the facility offers intervention services and programs focused on compulsive gambling and HIV/AIDS prevention.

Recovery Resources is a private nonprofit facility, which make up about 80 percent of all treatment facilities in Ohio. The organization has three outpatient locations in the Cleveland, Ohio, area, including in the Midtown and Old Brooklyn neighborhoods of Cleveland, and in Lakewood, Ohio. Supportive housing is also available for clients receiving substance misuse or mental illness treatment.


Individuals may participate in an initial assessment process on a walk-in basis five days a week, according to Recovery Resources website. This process is used to determine the best treatment plan to meet each client’s needs and circumstances.

Clients who have lived with addiction for a long time are encouraged to participate in an intensive outpatient program, a program tack offered at only 221 (54.4 percent) Ohio facilities. Dual diagnosis treatment is offered through two tracks based on which disorder (substance use or mental health) is more prominent.

Programming primarily consists of group therapy and educational sessions, focused on trigger recognition, coping skills, and relapse prevention. Treatment plans also incorporate individual counseling and case management, and some include drug screenings.

The facility’s specialized groups address topics relevant to specific clients, such as a trauma-informed, gender-specific intensive program for women and transition-oriented adolescent treatment.

All three locations host 12-step meetings. Additionally, Recovery Resources provides employment assistance and outpatient-based psychiatric services such as medication management.


The multidisciplinary treatment team includes board certified psychiatrists, registered nurses, licensed therapists specializing in areas such as adolescent treatment and addiction, and social workers.


Recovery Resources operates about half a dozen supportive housing facilities for approximately 100 clients living with mental illness and addiction in Cleveland and surrounding towns. According to the Recovery Resources website, accommodations range from single-family apartments to co-op group housing.

    Nice counselors. Group therapy. Not broad enough and not long enough I think it was fine and I'm not sure that there is anything better, but my loved one relapsed after treatment and never did get clean. I don't think that was their fault though. He just wasn't motivated.
