Available Alcohol & Drug Rehab Services In Circleville, Ohio

The drug rehab centers in Circleville and Pickaway County provide a variety of addiction treatment programs. Some of the treatment services you’ll likely find in this region include:

  • detoxification/detox
  • inpatient treatment
  • outpatient treatment
  • medication-assisted treatment
  • dual-diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders
  • aftercare


Detoxification/detox involves allowing drugs and/or alcohol to fully leave your body. While this might sound easy, it can be very difficult. If you’ve abused drugs for a long period of time, when you quit, serious withdrawal symptoms may occur.

Because of these symptoms, it’s recommended you go through detox under medical supervision either at a detox center or with your healthcare provider. They will provide medication to make the detox process much more comfortable.

Inpatient Treatment

After detox, your next step can be inpatient treatment. This usually takes place at a residential facility where you stay for the entirety of your treatment. You sleep there and eat your meals there when not in treatment sessions.

The treatment programs in inpatient care often include behavioral therapy, group therapy, addiction education, and some recreational activities. It can be short-term or long-term but often lasts 30-90 days.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is another option you can take after detox. Unlike inpatient treatment, however, you go to treatment sessions several times per week and then go home once sessions are over for the day with outpatient care.

Outpatient treatment is recommended for those with mild to moderate substance use disorder. For more comprehensive outpatient care, consider partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) or intensive outpatient programs (IOPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment is for either alcohol or opioid use disorder. It includes taking prescribed medication along with therapy.

There are a variety of medications used in MAT. Which one you take depends on the drug that was abused. Some of the medications include methadone, naltrexone, and buprenorphine.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment For Co-Occurring Mental Health Disorders

If you’re dealing with another mental illness on top of addiction, many treatment facilities offer dual-diagnosis treatment. This ensures both disorders are treated at the same time so one doesn’t negatively affect the treatment of the other. 


Once you leave formal treatment, some rehab programs offer aftercare support so you’re not completely on your own when you return to the real world. This support decreases the risk of relapse, especially in the first days outside of addiction treatment.

Aftercare can come in the form of overdose education, sober-living housing, employment assistance, and support groups.

Paying For Addiction Treatment In Circleville, Ohio

Figuring out how you’re going to pay for addiction treatment can be incredibly stressful. However, if you have insurance, the cost might be relatively low. Both private health insurance and Medicare/Medicaid cover most of the cost of treatment.

Contact your insurance provider to learn more about your coverage for addiction. You can also gather your policy information and contact drug or alcohol rehab centers directly.
