Recovery Resources takes a comprehensive, holistic approach to working with clients who have a vast range of behavioral healthcare needs. We use best practice models to ensure outstanding service delivery and positive outcomes. Our services include:
In addition to the mental health services described below, our housing, prevention, job search, and supported employment programs are available to our clients with behavioral healthcare needs.
Our Community Psychiatric Supportive Treatment Services staff (CPST) work closely with our clients on a daily and weekly basis in order to ensure they have their treatment needs met, including medication adherence, assisting with obtaining benefits, healthcare entitlements, housing resources, and other items to strive towards better self-efficacy and self-sufficiency.
We act as a liaison between our clients and their service providers -- both within our agency and within the community. We partner with the criminal justice system, area hospitals, and a variety of social service partners to ensure the most comprehensive services are available. We take a team approach to clients’ treatment by working with psychiatrists, nurses, employment specialists, peer support specialists, parole/probation officers, case managers, and program supervisors.
Services are delivered in the community (clients’ homes, community sites, hospitals, jails, nursing homes, etc.) as well as at our locations in Cuyahoga County. We have both forensic & non-forensic CPST services available and services are delivered based on the clients’ level of care. Our CPST services include the following:
Our outpatient Medical Management services work to stabilize individuals and help them function optimally within the community. We promote preventive care, wellness, and psycho-education in clients with mental health, alcohol, drug, and other disorders. We provide psychiatric services to individuals with thought and mood disorders, as well as persons with dual diagnoses. We proudly serve those currently and/or formerly involved with the criminal justice system.
Our team includes psychiatrists, advance practice nurses, resident physicians in training, fellows, psychiatric nurses, social workers, counselors, and non-clinical staff. All residents work under the supervision of our Medical Director or other assigned physician. A key factor in achieving psychiatric stability within our community is a strong support system and community connection. Our clients and their family members have an active role in discussing therapeutic options, initiating changes, and providing feedback about their experiences with their treatment. We have established and maintained relationships with our community behavioral health providers and social service agencies that we enlist on behalf of our patients. Our ultimate goal is to achieve an integrated service delivery for all of our clients with one treatment team, which includes primary healthcare services and behavioral healthcare services.
Our Behavioral Health therapists serve adults and adolescents with mental health needs. We provide individual outpatient behavioral health counseling with the goal of improving each client’s sense of self & quality of life to include work, relationships, and daily functioning.
We offer two different groups for Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services for persons with dual disorders: Mentally Ill/Chemically Addicted (MICA) and Chemically Addicted/Mentally Ill (CAMI). These IOP groups are specifically designed to educate and support people who need treatment for mood and thought disorders (e.g. depression, bipolar, schizophrenia) in addition to chemical dependency.
We serve adults who have been dually diagnosed with a mental illness and substance use disorder. This program consists of three-hour sessions, four days per week. Sessions include creating a structured lifestyle, individual counseling and drug screens to monitor sobriety. Groups are separate for clients with mood and thought disorders. All Dual Disordered IOP groups include gender-specific trauma as part of the treatment curriculum.
Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) helps consumers diagnosed with a severe mental illness who are at risk of re-hospitalization or who are being released from the hospital and are in need of continued support and stabilization. This is a six-week intensive therapy program. Participants can be internally or externally referred upon release from the hospital. Clients are taught social and daily living skills, medication management, and education regarding illness or diagnosis. Clients are reviewed every six weeks to determine a need to continue attending group. Clients attend group sessions five days per week.
Our Persuasion Engagement Group (PEG) is a group for clients who are in the pre-engagement stage of change (not yet ready to commit to quitting) with an identified need for substance abuse/dependence treatment. Taken from the IDDT (Integrated Dual-Diagnosis Treatment) Model, PEG is an evidence-based model to help clients move through contemplation and to the action phase. The group meets two days per week; length is based upon individualized treatment plans.

Our Warm Line is a peer-support phone line available to all adult residents of Cuyahoga County who may be experiencing mental illness and/or substance abuse problems. The Peer Support Workers who staff the Warm Line are trained to provide a “listening ear,” to make appropriate referrals, and to refer to Crisis Intervention service providers when appropriate.
Support from those who have experienced similar issues can be a great help during a time of self-doubt or a low point. The guiding philosophy is that self-help/peer support interactions are to be conducted either by persons receiving services, having received services, or their families/significant others.
Warm Line peers provide emotional support and understanding, share experiences in coping with problems, and form a network of ongoing support outside the formal mental health and alcohol and other addictions services system.
