Delaware County is home to very few providers offering addiction treatment services. Residents who would benefit from a substance abuse treatment program can consider treatment options outside the county, including Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

In the heart of Ohio and just north of Columbus, Delaware County has one of the lowest rates of drug overdose in the state. Even so, a record number of county residents struggle with chronic alcohol abuse, opioid addiction, stimulant addiction, and other forms of substance use disorder.

However, there are few addiction treatment centers operating in the county. 

Two notable examples can be found near the city of Delaware, offering outpatient and both inpatient and outpatient services, respectively, while at least two outpatient providers can be found further to the south.

Otherwise, Delaware County residents are free to explore other treatment options like Ohio Recovery Center located in Van Wert.

Due to its smaller size, Delaware County has partnered with Morrow County to supervise addiction treatment programs in both regions via the Delaware-Morrow Mental Health & Recovery Services Board (DMMHRSB), based in the city of Delaware.

The DMMHRSB offers residents of Morrow and Delaware counties recovery and prevention resources for those with drug/alcohol addiction or mental health issues. These resources, listed on their homepage, include:

Residents can also use the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) national helpline and behavioral health treatment locator to find treatment providers across Ohio, evaluate the services they provide, and view the payment options they accept.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Centers In Delaware County, Ohio

Inpatient and outpatient treatment services are available in the city of Delaware, with other outpatient providers also operating in the region. 

However, depending on your individual needs and preferences, you may benefit from other treatment programs available outside of Delaware County.

Some of the most common alcohol and drug abuse treatment formats and services available within Ohio include:

Medical Detoxification

Detox programs are hosted in both inpatient and outpatient settings and have been widely established in Ohio communities to help participants in the earliest stages of addiction recovery navigate the uncomfortable and potentially dangerous process of drug or alcohol withdrawal.

This process, once complete, helps prepare participants to continue on in a professionally managed inpatient or outpatient addiction treatment plan.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment programs take place in comfortable residential rehab centers that provide participants with room and board during the full length of their stay, which is usually either thirty or sixty days.

While in an inpatient program, you should expect to have 24/7 access to caregivers along with an intensive and regimented daily course of treatment that may feature:

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient programs are hosted at licensed treatment centers and provide care and support for those who wish to continue to live at home while receiving treatment. 

Outpatient formats vary in intensity, from regular outpatient treatment to part-time intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) or full-time day treatment/partial hospitalization programs (PHPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is available through approved opioid and alcohol rehab providers, using a combination of counseling with specific medications approved by the FDA for the treatment of either opioid or alcohol use disorder.

MAT programs can reliably improve a participant’s experience with cravings and other withdrawal symptoms, decreasing the likelihood of future relapse.

Payment Options Accepted In Delaware County, Ohio

Different rehab programs in Ohio will have varying policies regarding acceptable forms of payment for drug and alcohol treatment, potentially including reduced-cost treatment options and financial aid for those who qualify.

The most commonly accepted forms of payment include:

  • private health insurance benefits
  • Medicare, Medicaid, and military insurance benefits
  • other federal or state funding sources
  • cash or self-payment options
