Introduction and Basic Services

Located 20 minutes from Cincinnati, Ohio, The Ridge is a luxury residential facility that provides treatment for clients struggling with substance use disorders. This Joint Commission-accredited facility was founded 30 years ago, and has a long history of serving the community. The Ridge provides top of the line accommodations and a 28-day residential treatment with a focus on involving each client’s family in therapy. In addition, The Ridge offers 52 weeks of aftercare following residential treatment.

Facility and Meals

Residents stay in a remote luxury estate situated on 51 acres of wooded grounds. The facility offers clients with a comfortable and peaceful atmosphere with plenty of quiet places for self-reflection. With the relaxing vibe of a bed and breakfast, The Ridge is a colonial-style home with a spacious floor plan, several common areas with TVs and 14 beds. With a limit of 14 clients at a time, the environment is intimate. Most clients have a roommate, though there is a private room option for an additional fee. Every bedroom is equipped with queen-sized beds and an upscale private bathroom. The Ridge’s campus is perfect for connecting with nature, while either walking around the pond or animal-watching. Residents also enjoy top-notch amenities including a pool, sauna and fishing pond.

There is a formal dining area at The Ridge. With a culinary team comprised of two on-site chefs, there is an emphasis on delicious, healthy food. Clients with dietary restrictions or preferences will be accommodated and snacks are readily available.

Treatment Protocol and Team

If needed, detox services are provided on-site. The detox program typically lasts between three and five days and clients are supervised around the clock by a medical staff of physicians and nurses. The residential treatment program lasts a minimum of 28 days, though lengths of stay vary depending on the specific needs of the client. Clients receive individual and group therapy and the integrated program combines therapies like CBT, DBT, MI and12-step, with holistic methods like meditation and a physical fitness regimen several days a week. There are also writing assignments and AA/NA meetings to compliment therapy.

The Ridge places a premium on family therapy. To this end, family visits and participation are a primary focus in recovery. The facility offers six weeks of family group lectures to educate families on the disease of addiction and demonstrate how they can assist in the recovery process. Aftercare is also emphasized at The Ridge. All clients that take part in the 28-day residential treatment receive a full year of continued support following their discharge.

The Ridge employs physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, addiction specialists and licensed counselors. For clients with severe co-occurring disorders, referrals can be made to nearby facilities.

Bonus Amenities

The Ridge provides an environment where clients can connect with themselves and nature. To that end, the facility does not permit electronic devices like cellphones or laptops. However, clients are allowed to call family members on the house phone, and personal music players are allowed during specific times.

Free time and an exercise regimen are key components to recovery. In addition, clients participate in art therapy and yoga. Also, residents take trips to museums and have movie nights.


The Ridge treatment center provides luxury accommodations and a structured, caring environment for recovery. The facility synchronizes classic methods and an array of holistic approaches with an emphasis on family involvement and physical fitness. The Ridge is a great option, and it does not hurt that most insurance plans are accepted.
