Recovery Changes


Welcome to a very special place, where recovery starts and healing begins.

The Recovery Council offers multiple treatment options to meet you right where you are.

The Recovery Council is a non-profit 501(c)3 treatment provider located in southern Ohio. Our culturally diverse team is carefully selected and composed of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) counselors, case managers and aides, all of whom are directed by clinical supervisors. We carefully coordinate a plan of treatment tailored to each client’s individual needs.

Comprehensive Treatment

We provide outpatient, intensive outpatient, residential, and recovery and transitional housing.

Client-Centered Care

Our agency is dedicated to ensuring client care is at the center of everything. Our treatment providers work with each client to provide personalized treatment planning to ensure each individual gets the specific care they need.

Specialty Programs

We offer trauma-informed programming for survivors of human trafficking and other significant traumas as well as family reunification and stabilization housing for families who have successfully completed residential treatment.

We accept referrals.
