The Woods at Parkside successfully treats substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders using a multi-faceted approach that takes into consideration the uniqueness of each individual.
Our goal is to provide clients with the foundation necessary to sustain lasting and meaningful recovery. To accomplish this, our licensed counselors focus on identifying root issues, while engaging clients in an individualized treatment plan to promote steady growth and relapse prevention.
Our treatment center is certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) and accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC). The facility is situated on over eleven acres in a quiet, residential neighborhood and complete with a serene view overlooking a golf course. We are ten minutes from Port Columbus International Airport and within a convenient driving distance to most areas in Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and Michigan. If transportation is an issue, our staff can accommodate by both picking up, and dropping off clients.
Parkside definitely saved my life! I met wonderful people there, that I will never forget such as other patients & staff members. Without the wonderful group of people that were there for me & with me, I don’t know what I would have done or how I would have gotten through my days there. The people definitely made it possible and A LOT easier than it would have been if I tried to do it alone!
Parkside was my saving grace when entering recovery. Majority of the staff is caring with an awesome sense of humor and humility. The clinicians are attentive and a special recognition should go out to my counselor, Tim G who has forever impacted my life. The food is edible and they have recently implemented various activities in with their traditional 12 step group therapies. Parkside is not without flaws, but is ever evolving. Just like most things in this world, you will most certainly get out of it what you put in to it. Go in with an open mind and a willingness to change, and Parkside will help you do the rest.
