One-of-a-Kind Youth Counseling Center Opens in Medina

OhioGuidestone & Medina ADAMH Board Collaboration

BEREA, OHIO, May 11, 2023 – OhioGuidestone, the state’s leader in community behavioral health in partnership with the Medina County ADAMH (Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health) Board announced the opening of the new Youth Resiliency and Counseling Center serving children and families.

A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with local and state dignitaries will take place on May 12 at 11a.m. at the new center at 177 Northland Drive in Medina.

The Youth Resiliency & Counseling Center (YRCC) is a state-of-the-art 6,000 square foot space designed specifically for counseling which will involve unique therapies in addition to traditional counseling. The facility features creative rooms such as a sand room, an art room, a movement room, a playroom, and a calming room – all created for youth to engage in therapy in more ways than just through talk time. The facility also has a large, modern kitchen where families can practice positive interactions in an everyday task that can sometimes be stressful.

“The new construction allowed us so much flexibility to design a space with the interest of our clients and staff in mind,” said Melissa Romain, Regional Director, Medina County at OhioGuidestone. “We created a space that is inviting and bright, flexible in its use and full of technology,” Romain said.

The ADAMH Board built the center to address unprecedented behavioral health concerns facing youth and families today. The Board chose OhioGuidestone to help in the design of the facility, and to provide trauma- informed care and behavioral health services to help youth and families heal from the mental health, substance use and traumatic experiences that so many are facing.

The Medina County ADAMH Board Executive Director, Phillip Titterington, stated “we are proud to bring the YRCC to Medina County to offer hope and healing to youth and families, and we look forward to our continued partnership with OhioGuidestone to provide these much-needed services.”

OhioGuidestone President and CEO, Brant Russell said, “We’ve have been partners with the ADAMH board since 2017 and are incredibly honored that they chose us to run the new Youth Resiliency & Counseling Center, providing better person-centered care for the children and families in Medina County.”

Youth and family clients who were previously served at 246 Northland Drive will now be seen at the new Youth Resiliency & Counseling Center, beginning within the next two weeks.

OhioGuidestone serves over 26,000 clients throughout Ohio. Call 844.6.CALL.OG (844-622-5584) to schedule an appointment.
