IBH Addiction Recovery is excited to announce the opening of its Firestone Park Outpatient and Aftercare Facility at 1601 South Main Street in Akron. The newly renovated building will be open to the press on Friday, October 22, 2021, between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Facility tours will be available and leadership staff and members of the organization’s board of trustees will be present to answer questions.
Conveniently located on the METRO RTA bus line and a short distance from both downtown Akron and IBH Addiction Recovery’s Main Campus, the newly renovated building will house the organization’s Outpatient Programs and the IBH REACH Program that provides aftercare support.
The Firestone Park Outpatient and Aftercare Facility has many features that will improve how IBH Addiction Recovery delivers our drug and alcohol addiction treatment including:
With both large and private rooms, there is ample space for community events and support meetings.
The lab provides computers and internet access to outpatient and aftercare clients to work on job applications, build resumes, or search for reliable housing.
Set in a coffee shop-like atmosphere, the drop-in center provides a place for clients to connect with others or receive positive reinforcement.
Onsite peer support and referral services are available to assist clients in finding additional outpatient programs and levels of care to continue their recovery.
“These special recovery programs are a dream come true for those who have served and supported IBH’s recovery services,” says Tim Killian, a longtime IBH Addiction Recovery Foundation Fund board member. “We look forward to opening this facility so IBH can provide an even more comprehensive level of addiction services to our community.”
The nearly 10,000 square foot building was constructed by Firestone Tire and Rubber Company in 1958 and most recently served as Boy Scouts of America’s Summit County headquarters.
IBH Addiction Recovery has been serving Summit County for more than 50 years by offering persons with alcohol and drug addiction the opportunity to restore hope and gain skills for a lifetime of sobriety. The organization’s Main Campus, located in Coventry Township on the banks of Portage Lakes, will continue to offer Residential Treatment, Day Treatment, and some Outpatient Programs.
