NEWTON FALLS, Ohio -

Operators of a new substance abuse rehabilitation facility in Newton Falls are promising access to every recovery tool available.

The River Falls Recovery House, 150 Charles Court, is an adult male residence for those in early recovery.

According to a news release, the mission of River Falls is to provide a “safe, stigma-free environment through education, mentoring and peer-based methods, based on experience, acceptance, and tolerance of every individual's personal path to recovery. “

Studies show that long-term treatment in connection with recovery housing dramatically improves success rates, according to the release.

"There's no completed course here," said Executive Director Ted. St. John. "Essentially, they need to learn how to live and we help them do that through a lived experience. So they will stay here a month if it's a bridge or they may stay here years."

River Falls says it offers help by utilizing 12 Step, SMART (Self-Management And Recovery Training), Faith-based and MAT (Medication-assisted treatment) programs.

The residence has a full-time staff member to assist residents on an individual and daily basis, assisting residents in life-skills training, outpatient, case management, crisis intervention and peer support as needed.
