Mental Health Care In Toledo, Ohio

Medically Reviewed By: Manish Mishra, MBBS


Many Toledo and Lucas County residents live with severe mental health conditions and do not receive the care they may need to live a positive and healthy life. Thankfully, Ohio Recovery Center can provide Toledo residents with primary residential mental health services.

According to the 2019/2020 Community Health report published by Healthy Toledo in partnership with federal, state, and community organizations:

  • as many as 5% of Lucas County adults seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year
  • 25% experienced some form of depression
  • 19% experienced some form of anxiety disorder
  • 6% experienced PTSD
  • 5% struggled with alcohol and/or drug abuse
  • only 16% used a program or service to help with depression, anxiety, or emotional problems

This means that many thousands of Toledo adults and adolescents aren’t receiving the psychological healthcare they need, despite access to many mental and behavioral healthcare providers in Lucas County.

If you or your loved one live with a mental health disorder and would benefit from compassionate psychiatric services in Northwest Ohio, please reach out to our team at Ohio Recovery Center (ORC).

Our residential facility is located in Van Wert, around 1.5 hours southwest of downtown Toledo.

Mental Health Care For Toledo Residents

At ORC we strive to provide the best possible inpatient mental and behavioral health services for a wide-range of diagnosable mental illnesses and conditions, including:

Our Van Wert-based team includes psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, behavioral/medical staff, master level clinicians, and case managers. 

Our treatment teams all work together to guide our participants through individualized, comprehensive, and compassionate treatment plans.

Our Mental Health Services

Our approach to mental health services involves an intensive, short-term, closely supervised inpatient treatment regimen featuring evidence-based treatment interventions. 

These include short-term stabilization services, medication management, individual/group psychotherapy, psychosocial treatment, and wellness activities.

Short-Term Stabilization

Temporary stabilization services are offered by ORC for those experiencing some form of mental health crisis, and they can sometimes be a viable alternative to psychiatric hospitalization. Our stabilization treatment services include:

  • psychiatric monitoring and evaluation
  • daily living skills training
  • social encounters
  • counseling
  • treatment planning

Medication Management

Main-line medications for anxiety, depression, psychosis, mood dysfunctions, and other issues can impact different people in different ways. As a result, we may need to carefully adjust and evaluate your medications as you attend treatment.

Individual & Group Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a core treatment intervention used for a wide variety of mental health issues as well as co-occurring substance use disorders at ORC.

Some specific forms of psychotherapy and behavioral therapy we offer include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), exposure therapy, and more.

Psychosocial Treatments

Given our residential treatment approach, ORC is the ideal place to build social tools and strategies to help you live a healthier and more independent lifestyle after your program is complete.

Specific treatment options our clinicians provide to this end include:

  • psychoeducation groups
  • self-help and support groups
  • coping skills development
  • family therapy
  • vocational training
  • independent living training
  • case management
  • aftercare planning

Wellness Activities

Alongside clinical psychiatric treatment, we offer a number of supportive services aimed at improving your overall personal well-being. Exercise classes, nutritional support, yoga, creative classes, outdoor exposure on our 55-acre property, and yoga are available.

How Our Mental Health Program Works

ORC has 37 gender-specific inpatient beds set aside for short-term psychological treatment for primary mental health disorder, usually lasting from 14 to 18 days total.

After admission, your treatment progression at ORC includes:

Initial Assessment & Evaluation

Within the first 24 hours of admission, your condition is evaluated in several ways:

  • a biopsychosocial assessment which compiles your medical, psychological, and social history
  • an assessment of your current medications
  • a safety assessment to determine your risk of harming yourself or others
  • a Columbia assessment (C-SSRS), measuring your risk of suicide and need for suicide prevention

Individualized Treatment Pathway

The recovery services you participate in are carefully structured to address your unique needs, goals, and challenges using modern, evidence-based treatment interventions. 

Once your assessment is complete, the results are used for individualized treatment planning for the rest of your stay.

Your plan may feature addiction services for substance abuse/dual diagnosis treatment plans, or other proven treatment services including behavioral therapies, medication, 12-step facilitation, family counseling, and other targeted group therapies.

Aftercare Planning

You’ll also work with our aftercare coordinator to develop a realistic, workable plan for ongoing support and guidance after your time at our treatment center comes to an end.

Aftercare services can look different from person to person, but often include:

  • medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for certain substance use disorders
  • specialized grief/trauma therapy
  • outpatient treatment (counseling services, IOPs, PHPs)
  • participation in peer support groups and other community resources
  • other medical, legal, or social support

If you or your loved one are facing a psychiatric disorder, you should know that we are here to help and support you because you deserve a brighter future. Call us today and let us help you take that next step.
