About Us

Providing the highest quality alcohol and other drug treatment, intervention, prevention and education services, Recovery & Prevention Resources strives for excellence in behavioral healthcare and recovery services.

Treatment and Intervention

In addition to assessment/diagnostic evaluation and therapy, our therapists are trained in crisis intervention if needed for detoxification or other non-medical emergencies. Typically an individual meets with one of our licensed therapists who will work to determine the most effective course of treatment.

We offer a variety of individual, group and family treatment options for both adults and adolescents. The appropriate combination is determined based on findings from a comprehensive assessment.

We also provide case management services, coordinating each case with relevant parties and making referrals for additional services as needed. With therapists licensed in both alcohol/drug and mental health treatment, we offer coordinated services for clients with co-occuring problems.

Intensive Outpatient Programming is our highest level of care and is designed for those who need more structure and support in their recovery. Once clients have completed primary treatment, we have several programs available to help them maintain and further their progress.

Prevention and Education

We use the Mendez Foundation's evidence-based Too Good series (info sheet), which is a comprehensive drug and violence prevention program designed to mitigate risk factors and build protection within the child. Too Good develops a framework of social and emotional skills through the development of goal-setting, decision-making, and effective communication skills in addition to peer pressure refusal, pro-social bonding, conflict resolution, and media literacy. Too Good builds the basis for a safe, supportive, and respectful learning environment.

  • We provide elementary school Too Good for Violence which teaches the following social and emotional learning skills—and which research has linked with healthy development and academic success:  conflict resolution, anger management, respect for self and others, and effective communication. TGFV also promotes character development by strengthening eight key character traits: caring, cooperation, courage, fairness, honesty, respect, responsibility, and self-discipline.
    • We also provide middle school Too Good for Drugs to address environmental and developmental risk factors related to alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, through the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes teens need to make healthy decisions and avoid drug use. Linked by research with healthy development and academic success, TGFD teaches five essential social and emotional learning skills: goal setting, decision-making, bonding with others, identifying and managing emotions, and communicating effectively.

Medication Assisted Treatment

Suboxone is a medication used to help individuals overcome addiction to opioids such as heroin, methadone, or prescription painkillers. Individuals who undertake our medication assisted treatment program are required to participate in ongoing alcohol and drug treatment to ensure the best chance of recovery. The length of treatment will be determined in collaboration with the patient, our physician, and the therapist. The length of treatment will vary for each individual. Our physician will taper the Suboxone treatment over time, taking care that the patient does not experience withdrawal symptoms or cravings.

When people addicted to opioids first quit, they undergo withdrawal symptoms which may be severe, including pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Suboxone can be helpful in this detoxification stage to ease craving and other physical symptoms that often prompt relapse. This is just the first step in treatment. Suboxone may also become an essential component of an ongoing treatment plan, enabling opioid-addicted persons to regain control of their health and their lives.

Suboxone is called a partial opioid agonist—it is taken orally to activate opioid receptors but is designed to produce a diminished response. It relieves drug cravings without producing the “high” or dangerous side effects of other opioids. It combines buprenorphine with naloxone to ward off attempts to get high by injecting the medication. In other words, if an addicted patient were to inject Suboxone, the naloxone would induce withdrawal symptoms that would otherwise have been averted by taking it orally as prescribed. Scientific research has established that medication-assisted treatment of opioid addiction increases patient retention and decreases drug use.

Drug-Free Delaware Coalition

The Coalition represents a community working together to design a drug-free county in order to prevent underage drinking, the use of illegal drugs, and misuse of prescription medicines. Our partners are unified individuals and organizations from many sectors of the community caring about and working together for a safer and healthier Delaware County for everyone. Our vision is that Delaware County youth will grow and thrive in a healthy community designed to be drug-free. With Recovery & Prevention Resources as the fiscal agent, the Coalition is funded through a federal Drug Free Communities Support Grant, cash, and generous in-kind resources.

Underage drinking in Ohio is widespread. In 2011 in Ohio, 38% of 9-12th graders reported drinking in the last 30 days, and 71% reported having had a drink at least once in their lives. And just two years prior underage drinking consumed 26.3% of all alcohol sold in Ohio, totaling $979 million in sales. Illicit drug use and prescription drug abuse are also growing. The 2013 Partnership Attitude Tracking Study found that one in four teens has misused or abused a prescription drug at least once in their lifetimea 33% increase over the past five years. And 13% of teens now report that they have taken the stimulants Ritalin or Adderall when they were not prescribed for them at least once in their lifetime, with 20% saying they have done so before age 14. Prescription and over-the-counter drugs are among the most commonly abused drugs by 12th graders after alcohol, marijuana, synthetic marijuana, and tobacco.

We have worked with local school districts to analyze and make recommendations on how to modify and improve prevention policies, programs, and practices. DFD helps to coordinate Delaware County's Take Back Day and has purchased and placed medication disposal drop-boxes at the Delaware County Jail and at police departments in Delaware City, Genoa Township, and Shawnee Hills (click here to download a flyer on the drop-box locations).
