Townhall II Addiction Prevention and Treatment


Townhall II Addiction Prevention and Treatment was founded in 1971 to provide an array of services designed to help people in Portage County struggling with addictions to alcohol and other substances. Located in Kent, Ohio, the facility offers outpatient addiction counseling to adults and adolescents, as well as a residential halfway house for women struggling with substance use disorders. Counseling is also available for those struggling with a gambling addiction.


The facility’s services include comprehensive assessments, individual counseling, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), continuing care groups, and special programs for individuals with co-occurring disorders. Additionally, the facility offers a selection of services for adolescents, including tobacco education, various drug and alcohol awareness and prevention programs, education, and support for pregnant or parenting teens.

The facility also operates a halfway house, Horizon House, which entails a 90-day residential treatment program for adult women in need of more structured treatment for substance misuse. Townhall II is one of only 75 facilities (18.5 percent) in Ohio to offer long-term residential treatment.

During treatment at Horizon House, women participate in group, individual, and family counseling. Additionally, they receive case management assistance to connect with other community recovery services, participate in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) groups, and follow a structured daily schedule to help keep them focused during recovery.

For adults who have a first-time operating vehicle under influence (OVI) offense, the facility offers Project Detour, a 72-hour, residential driver intervention program that offers large and small group education on state-required topics regarding substance misuse a well as individual substance abuse screenings.


According to Townhall II’s website, the treatment team includes licensed professional counselors, licensed substance abuse counselors, and residential aides.


Clients enrolled in Project Detour share double-occupancy bedrooms, though private rooms are available for an additional fee. According to the facility’s website, Horizon House offers a safe and home-like environment where women can learn long-term recovery skills.

The cost of treatment at the facility is based on a sliding fee scale for Portage County residents. The facility accepts some private insurance as well as Medicaid and indicates that no client will ever be turned away due to an inability to pay for treatment.

Horizon House is fully funded through the Women’s Special Services Grant from the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services and the Portage County Mental Health & Recovery Board.

Project Detour costs $350 though financial assistance may be available for those who already receive support funding through Medicaid, Social Security Disability Income or regular social security income, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. Private rooms have an additional cost of $150.
