The Ridge, Premier Cincinnati-Area Drug and Alcohol Treatment Facility, Opens Its Doors to Patients
Upscale Residential Treatment and Recovery Center Offers Private Rooms, Individualized Medical Care, and Private Chef
Cincinnati, OH – February 22, 2011 – The Ridge, an upscale residential drug and alcohol treatment facility, has opened its doors and is accepting patients. The residential treatment center, located in a former estate just 25 miles from Cincinnati, is designed to evoke the privacy and charm of a bed and breakfast while providing the services of a residential recovery center with experienced chemical dependency counselors and affiliated medical professionals.
Led by Dr. Jeffery Stuckert, M.D., The Ridge offers a 28-day minimum stay program at its residential drug and alcohol treatment center, primarily focused upon treating the disease of addiction and providing hope to its patients. The facility offers initial home intervention services for families seeking assistance with a patient’s voluntary admission to the center. The residential treatment program incorporates the elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), 12-step facilitation, group therapy, and tailored individual treatment. Most patients needing detoxification can be detoxed at the outset under the supervision of physicians and registered nurses. Among the activities and amenities available to patients are exercise options, a sauna, swimming pool, stocked fishing pond, and walking trails along The Ridge’s 51-acre campus. In addition, the residential recovery center has retained a private, executive chef to provide a reparative nutritional menu, a personalized method of restoring a patient’s diet to complement drug and alcohol treatment and recovery. “We believe we can offer the finest residential treatment program in this region of the country,” said Dr. Stuckert.
In a departure from other area residential treatment centers, The Ridge utilizes a model based upon physician management and operation, encouraged family involvement, and group therapy. Additionally, with so few patients, the facility’s low patient-to-staff ratio enables highly individualized treatment. “We feel as though these key differentiators truly elevate our residential recovery center to a new level of service beyond every other institutional residential treatment center,” said Steve Gifford, Clinical Program Director. “Though drug and alcohol treatment is developed around a highly structured environment, we allow time for patients to learn and recover from their disease through truly therapeutic elements. We treat patients not only by resolving substance abuse issues, but also by fostering wellness through proper nutrition, exercise, and external / familial support.” To learn more about The Ridge’s residential recovery center and its features, please visit www.theridgeohio.com.
