About Us

Moving forward residential is 24-hour clinically monitored residential treatment program for adult, male clients dealing with substance use disorders (SUD).

Moving Forward is a substance use disorder treatment center in Southern Ohio nestled on 6 acres of serene land with a stocked pond. We provide a professional residential level of care in accordance with the American Society of Addiction Medicine. We believe what sets us apart from the rest is our compassionate and outcome-driven staff and our family atmosphere. Our home houses 16 male residents, which allows us to provide low counselor to client ratios and small group sizes that are essential in providing high-quality care. Our counselors are well educated, licensed, and teach from evidenced-based practices. Our team provides care that we would expect for our own family members.


Our Mission

The mission of moving forward residential is to provide an array of evidence based services that are abstinence based in a secure and trusting environment. These services will include aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). We combine these therapies with the 12-step support group to better serve clients and provide guidance in building a strong character mentally, physically and spiritually.

To Move Forward, we must learn to accept our past. Learn to ask for forgiveness from others and ourselves and commit to change.

The Moving Forward approach

The Moving Forward approach is multidimensional and comprehensive. We use several mechanisms of therapeutic intervention to produce both acceptance and change in the individual.

Because many individuals are afraid of change, it is important to assist them in developing the capability to change certain aspects of themselves and at the same time accept aspects of themselves and others that they cannot change.

Two main causes of relapse are personal triggers and stress. And while it may be somewhat easy for a recovering addict to avoid going to bars or hanging out with people they used with before getting sober, it’s not nearly as easy to avoid stress. Every single person on the face of this planet has to deal with daily uncertainties, illness, aging, death, job security and many other stressors. At Moving Forward we teach patients a set of specialized skills based on Mindfulness.

Mindfulness practices are intended to foster increased awareness of triggers, destructive habitual patterns, and “automatic” reactions that seem to control many of our lives. The mindfulness practices at Moving Forward are designed to help us pause, observe present experience, and bring awareness to the range of choices before each of us in every moment.  We learn to respond in ways that serves us, rather than react in ways that are detrimental to our health and happiness. Ultimately, we are working towards freedom from deeply ingrained and often catastrophic habits.

By using supportive, multilevel, and focused approaches, as well as requiring therapists to receive continuing education, Moving Forward delivers a comprehensive treatment package. Therapists remain motivated to help clients and are updated regarding the latest techniques and strategies for doing so.
