Allen County offers addiction treatment services that include a 24/7 helpline, a naloxone access program, and multiple inpatient and outpatient treatment programs. Comprehensive residential treatment is also available at our facility, which is located about 40 minutes from Lima.

Allen County is located in northwest Ohio and contains both Lima and Cairo. It has a population of about 101,700 and, like many counties in Ohio, has seen its share of substance use disorders and drug overdoses.

Although there aren’t more than four addiction treatment centers in the area, there are a number of community resources to help make up the difference. Both drug and alcohol rehab centers as well as community resources are overseen by The Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize, and Hardin Counties.

Residents of Allen County, however, can also access substance abuse treatment facilities just outside the county, including at Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Allen County, Ohio

There are only four addiction treatment centers within a 25-mile radius of Allen County with most located in Lima, Ottawa, and Van Vert

All of these rehab facilities offer different treatment options, including medication-assisted treatment, inpatient and outpatient treatment, and medical detox.

Medical Detox

During medical detox, medical professionals will help you manage your withdrawal symptoms as the drugs and/or alcohol completely leave your system. They may also prescribe medications to ease certain symptoms and ensure your vitals are stable.

Inpatient Treatment 

Inpatient treatment, sometimes referred to as residential treatment, is recommended for those with moderate to severe addiction and typically involves living at a treatment center and receiving care around the clock. 

Some of the levels of care at inpatient drug rehabilitation include dual-diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental illness, case management, support groups, mental health services, group therapy, and ongoing peer and professional support.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is recommended for people with mild addictions and strong support systems at home. There are three types of outpatient programs: partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and standard outpatient programs. 

PHPs are the most intense and the most like inpatient treatment without actually living at a drug rehab center. IOPs and standard outpatient programs are less intensive.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

In medication-assisted treatment (MAT), healthcare providers prescribe medications approved to treat opioid/opiate and alcohol addictions. 

MAT also includes some form of behavioral therapy. The medications prescribed ease cravings and withdrawal symptoms and include methadone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, and others.

Payment Options Accepted In Allen County, Ohio
