At the Lindner Center of HOPE, we understand that addiction is a disease. When struggling with Substance use disorders (SUDs), like so many medical conditions, a patient often needs a combination of medical care and professional support to manage it. That’s why we’ve assembled a strong team of dedicated addiction specialists who create individualized plans for each of our patients. Plans may include medication-assisted treatment, therapy, support groups, combined with other comprehensive methods, like treating for possible underlying issues, such as depression or anxiety. Because the most effective treatments treat the whole person, we can also help our patients with related medical concerns, like pregnancy while addicted, HIV and STDs and other conditions by connecting them with resources in the community or working collaboratively with other healthcare providers. We even offer resources to help our patients get back on track in their everyday life, recovery skills building and even linkage to vocation, education and employment assistance.

Rehabs 360 Guide


Under the auspices of Lindner Center of HOPE, HOPE Center North offers a range of outpatient-based services for adults who are struggling with chemical dependency as well as co-occurring disorders. Located some 20 miles northeast of Cincinnati in Mason, Ohio, the facility provides an intensive outpatient program (IOP), support groups, and a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals recovering from opioid addiction.

Within the state, HOPE Center North is among 57.2 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities with an IOP and among 47.9 percent with tailored programs for clients with co-occurring disorders.


Treatment at HOPE Center North begins with an initial assessment for clinicians to identify a client’s needs and recommend the appropriate outpatient level of care. If a client is struggling with opioid addiction, that individual may be referred to the facility’s MAT program.

Note that separate walk-in assessments also are available on weekday mornings for potential clients interested in enrolling in the facility’s Suboxone or methadone maintenance program. Within Ohio, HOPE Center North is one of 19 substance abuse treatment facilities that dispense methadone and among 37.9 percent that use Suboxone.

If a client requires a heightened level of structure during early recovery, that person may be referred to HOPE Center North's IOP, which meets three evenings on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. for a total of nine hours per week, and typically lasts 12 weeks. Clients in the IOP also may participate concurrently in the MAT program. The medication regimens are designed to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and help curb cravings associated with opioid dependency.

HOPE Center North utilizes a range of therapeutic approaches in the IOP, including motivational interviewing (MI), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). These evidence-based approaches help clients set obtainable goals, identify irrational thinking patterns, and modify addictive behavior.

During IOP, clients participate mainly in group counseling sessions, though individual and family counseling sessions may be incorporated into programming. The facility also offers consultations with loved ones to involve them in the recovery process.

Along with counseling sessions, clients attend psychoeducational classes that may address the disease model of addiction, relapse prevention strategies, and specific co-occurring concerns, such as anxiety or depression, which may contribute to addictive behavior. In addition, HOPE Center North holds 12-step meetings and other self-help group meetings, such as SMART Recovery, on-site.

To help its diverse population, HOPE Center North offers referrals to community-based resources to assist pregnant clients, as well as those with HIV, STDs, or other medical-related concerns. In addition, the facility may offer individuals with co-occurring mental health concerns referrals to receive psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medication management. Before the client completes the IOP, the facility develops comprehensive discharge plans, which may include recommendations for vocational training, education, and employment opportunities.


Linder Center of HOPE bears the gold seal of approval for Behavioral Health Opioid Treatment Accreditation from The Joint Commission. HOPE Center North employs a multidisciplinary team specialized in treating addiction and underlying issues, including physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, a board certified addictionologist, and licensed professional counselors.


The HOPE Center North facility is a dedicated, specialized outpatient setting, located in Mason at 4483 State Route 42, where clients attend the IOP and MAT program. At the time of this writing, the facility’s IOP accepts 12 clients at a time. Established clients undergoing methadone treatment for addiction to opioids receive dosing on Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Saturday from 6 to 10 a.m.
