According to SAMHSA, Ashtabula County is home to at least two outpatient treatment providers and two inpatient addiction treatment centers. These facilities, and others outside the county, provide a wide- range of substance abuse treatment services.

Medical Detoxification

The discomfort and danger of withdrawal symptoms can be a major obstacle that prevents people from beginning an alcohol or drug treatment program, even after they’ve accepted that they need to make a change.

Inpatient and outpatient medical detox programs are available to guide participants through this process safely under the supervision of medical professionals with as much comfort as possible.

Inpatient Treatment

Severe drug or alcohol addiction needs to be addressed comprehensively and effectively, and residential treatment programs are considered the most effective substance use disorder treatment setting.

Common interventions used in inpatient programs include behavioral therapies, individual counseling, group therapy, peer support groups, mental health services, and medication-assisted treatment.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment services come in a variety of formats and intensities, including regular outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient programs, and partial hospitalization programs.

In this way, outpatient treatment centers can meet the needs of different participants, including those who have already completed inpatient treatment programs and those who cannot afford or devote the time required for inpatient care.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Opiate and alcohol addiction are common and serious problems in Ashtabula County.

To address alcohol and opioid use disorders, specialized treatment solutions are available in the form of MAT programs that use medications like methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone to reduce cravings and improve long-term treatment outcomes.

Payment Options Accepted In Ashtabula County, Ohio

The cost of an addiction treatment program can vary depending on the type and length of services rendered. Fortunately, rehab facilities in Ohio work hard to make their services widely accessible and will typically accept payment in a number of forms, such as:

  • private health insurance benefits, including both government marketplace insurance and employer-sponsored health insurance
  • military insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid benefits
  • self payment using cash, check, or credit card
  • sliding scale fees or other income-based models
  • other financial aid programs
