Mentor, OH. November 20, 2020: Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers remains open and anyone struggling with addiction or wants to refer someone struggling with addiction can call us for an immediate appointment. We know, in these uncertain and stressful times, that those with addiction issues continue to need care. As an “essential service” as defined by the State of Ohio, we are open and taking proactive steps to keep our clients and staff safe while serving the needs of our community. However as the coronavirus continues to spread, and Lake County being fourth highest in the state for positive cases, Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers will temporarily suspended face-to-face individual and group counseling at all of our outpatient offices, effective November 23, 2020 until further notice. These services are now provided via telehealth.
All appointments with the nurse practitioner for Medication Assisted Treatment will continue as scheduled at our Mentor Outpatient office, as well as those for new clients. With the exception of appointments with the nurse practitioner, no on-site appointments will be conducted at this time.
Please be assured that our outpatient offices are not closing. While we are still accepting new clients, and referrals to outpatient or residential treatment services, walk-in intakes are also temporarily suspended. All intakes can be completed by phone or video by calling 440-255-0678 to connect with one of our Intake Counselors.
