Residents of Barberton, Ohio, can attend local non-intensive outpatient care for substance use disorder. For more intensive levels of care, including intensive outpatient treatment and inpatient treatment, residents will likely need to travel elsewhere in the Akron region or across Ohio.

In Barberton, Summit County, and the Akron area, drug addiction and overdoses are considered an urgent public health concern. In 2022, naloxone (Narcan) kits for opioid overdose were freely distributed in the local farmer’s market and at other community events.

And while the community does have some local resources for addiction treatment, it lacks the intensive options for substance rehabilitation that are often required to effectively address severe cases of opioid, alcohol, or stimulant use disorder.

Addiction Treatment Services In Barberton, Ohio

According to the SAMHSA behavioral health treatment locator, there is one outpatient treatment provider available in Barberton for substance use disorder treatment. 

While treatment for other co-occurring mental health disorders can also be provided, intensive outpatient options are not offered in Barberton itself.

Instead, Barberton residents requiring a more intensive recovery plan should consider traveling to other locations like Akron, Cleveland, Massillon, and Youngstown.

Common treatment services that may be recommended according to your situation and needs include:

  • medical detoxification
  • regular or intensive outpatient treatment
  • inpatient treatment
  • dual diagnosis treatment
  • medication-assisted treatment
  • aftercare support

Medical Detoxification

Long-term substance use promotes the development of physical dependence, which causes your body to become heavily reliant on drugs or alcohol to keep you functioning. This means that uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms may occur when you stop using. 

This is why it’s strongly recommended that those beginning the recovery process do so with the help of a medical detox program, where you will be closely monitored and supported until your body rebalances.

Outpatient Rehab

Regular outpatient treatment programs, like those offered in Barberton, rely heavily on individual or group counseling to support those in recovery. 

Other outpatient approaches, like intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and partial-hospitalization programs (PHPs), offer a more in-depth experience better suited for those with a more severe level of addiction.

Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient recovery programs offer a highly regimented and supportive environment for participants to focus on the process of recovery.

Inpatient treatment options include counseling, family therapy, behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment, dual diagnosis treatment, and alternative forms of treatment.

Inpatient rehabilitation can be offered as either long- or short-term programs designed to welcome participants into specialized drug rehab centers where they will live for the entire length of the program.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Dual diagnosis care describes a type of substance abuse treatment designed to simultaneously address both a substance use disorder and an unmanaged co-occurring mental health disorder like anxiety, depression, PTSD, and others.

This combined approach can often greatly improve a participant’s overall wellness and long-term prospects for a successful recovery.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Approved rehab programs may use naltrexone, methadone, and other medications along with counseling or behavioral therapy to improve the recovery process for those with alcohol or opiate use disorders.

These MAT drugs can restore a participant’s brain chemistry, temper difficult withdrawal symptoms, and discourage future substance abuse long-term.


Common aftercare programs offered by addiction treatment programs include sober living arrangements, case management, and follow-up programs, peer support group participation (Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous), relapse prevention programs, and more.
