History of IBH: 
IBH Addiction Recovery, originally known as the Interval Brotherhood Home, was founded in 1970 to help those struggling with alcoholism.
IBH Addiction Recovery began as a residential treatment center that was rooted in the 12-step recovery program. Over the years, their services and programs have evolved to meet the needs of their client base with a focus on the treatment of both alcohol and drug addiction. IBH Addiction Recovery now offers additional services to clients, including outpatient treatment and day treatment. What’s more, IBH Addiction Recovery offers the REACH (Recovery Education Accountability Community and Hope) Program, a peer-based continuing care program for those that complete treatment.
Upcoming plans include the opening of an outpatient facility at 1601 S. Main St. in Akron’s Firestone Park neighborhood. The new space will house the REACH Program and outpatient services that support people after they complete treatment with us. Formerly the Boy Scout building, it is currently being renovated with plans to open very soon.
What are IBH’s treatment core values?
IBH Addiction Recovery builds its treatment philosophy around four core values: Dignity, Community, Stewardship (Outcomes), and Spirituality.
  • IBH Addiction Recovery values the dignity of every person.
  • Treatment at IBH Addiction Recovery occurs in a community, not in isolation.
  • IBH Addiction Recovery believes that stewardship must be outcome-driven and operate on a theory of change that will maximize our clients’ opportunities to develop a life of sobriety.
  • Persons have a spiritual dimension. We are made for activities and relationships that align with our true calling and are worthy of our dignity as persons.

  • 674 individuals received services at IBH, 435 were male and 239 were female in 2020.
