Substance Abuse Treatment

Substance Abuse Treatment

Windsor Laurelwood offers several levels of inpatient care to assist individuals on the road to recovery at our facility located just 20 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio. 

According to the National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics, half of people 12 and older have used illicit drugs at least once. Drug abuse is also likely to affect young males. While younger people are more likely to use drugs, the rate of drug use among people over 40 is increasing faster than it is among younger age groups.

These statistics show the need for addiction services as overdose deaths are also on the rise across the country. 

Our substance abuse treatment program is provided by a team of understanding and caring professionals experienced in the assessment and implementation of substance abuse and detoxification care. 

The programs at our substance abuse treatment center, located in Willoughby, Ohio, are designed as a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and encompass a variety of therapies, including individual, group, family, recreational and art therapies. All treatment is provided in the context of the 12-Step program model.

Adult Inpatient Detox Program

The Inpatient Detoxification Program is for adults who require medically supervised withdrawal from alcohol and/or drugs. 

Addiction is a complex issue, and because of the life-threatening nature of withdrawal symptoms, the detox treatment program is supervised by a board-certified addictionologist who leads a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including nurses and counselors, in providing treatment to patients during the detoxification process.

The goal of this program is to engage patients and family throughout addiction treatment and education on the disease process to create the best opportunity for relapse prevention. The length of stay in this program is variable.

Inpatient Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation


The Chemical Dependency Rehabilitation Program is designed for adults who are at risk of relapse and require the supportive structure of a 24-hour therapeutic environment. Patients at our substance abuse rehab will be under the medical supervision of a board certified addictionologist, nursing staff and counselors. 

Patients address their chemical dependency issues in group settings and individual work with certified/licensed chemical dependency counselors on relapse prevention and addiction therapy. The goal of this program is to engage patients and family through recovery and educate on the disease process to create the best opportunity for relapse prevention. Length of stay in this program is variable but can be as long as 28 days.

Family Therapy During Drug and Alcohol Rehab


Including family and other support groups are integral parts to substance use disorder recovery. That’s why we encourage family involvement through weekly family day programs. 

The program provides family members with an opportunity to learn how they have been affected by the disease of chemical dependency and how they can recover together as a family. 

Those struggling with chemical dependency issues and their loved ones are affected physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Our mission is to educate the family about their loved one’s illness and how it affects the entire family unit.
