Addiction Treatment Services In Avon Lake

While there are numerous addiction treatment centers in Cleveland and Lorain County, including both inpatient and outpatient providers, Avon Lake itself is only home to a single outpatient treatment center specializing in both intensive and regular outpatient services.

Other drug addiction treatment options that may be recommended to Avon Lake residents, depending on your needs and preferences, include:

  • medical detox
  • inpatient treatment
  • dual diagnosis treatment
  • medication-assisted treatment options
  • peer support groups
  • counseling
  • aftercare support

Medical Detoxification

Medical detox programs are recommended for those who are beginning the process of addiction recovery but have developed physical dependence towards a specific substance like opioids, amphetamines, or alcohol.

Without the medical supervision available in a detox center or inpatient treatment center, the process of withdrawal can increase the likelihood of relapse or even overdose.

Outpatient Rehab

Many outpatient rehabilitation programs are flexible and can meet the needs of a wide-range of different participants. Common formats for outpatient care include regular outpatient/counseling programs, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and partial hospitalization programs (PHPs).

Outpatient treatment is also commonly recommended as a follow-treatment after an inpatient program has concluded.

Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient rehabilitation may be offered in either long- or short-term formats, each of which requires participants to live inside a specialized drug rehab center for the full length of their program.

While participating in inpatient substance abuse treatment, you participate in individual and group counseling, family therapy, different forms of behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment, dual diagnosis treatment, alternative treatments, and recreational activities.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

If you live with a mental health disorder along with a substance use disorder, you may benefit from a dual-diagnosis treatment program.

These specialized addiction treatment services are designed for treatment providers to provide cohesive and complementary care for both addiction and other contributing mental health disorders at the same time.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

MAT programs are highly recommended for those who are facing either alcohol use disorder or opioid use disorder.

Using specialized medications like naltrexone, methadone, and buprenorphine, MAT-providing rehab programs reduce withdrawal symptoms, discourage future substance abuse, and increase the likelihood that participants maintain their sobriety long-term.


Many addiction treatment programs offer aftercare programs to continue supporting their graduates months or even years into the future.

These aftercare programs may include sober living housing, case management programs, facilitation of peer support groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous, relapse prevention programs, and Alumni programs and activities.

Paying For Addiction Recovery Services In Avon Lake, Ohio

Ohio alcohol and drug treatment programs commonly accept different types of payment, often with considerations for financial need.

Your options may include:

  • private insurance benefits, including health insurance benefits available through public health insurance marketplaces
  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • low-cost self-payment options for those with financial need
  • other forms of financial assistance
