Like many communities in Ohio, the population of Huron County has struggled with addiction. Thankfully, Huron County offers local addiction services like accredited treatment programs, helpful support groups, and immediate helplines for those in need.

Situated in northern Ohio between Cleveland and Toledo, Huron County has seen an increase in addiction and overdose deaths.

Fortunately, there are addiction treatment options throughout the county, including detox, inpatient care, and outpatient treatment, and aftercare support. The Huron County Board of Mental Health and Addiction Services is who oversees local treatment services.

However, Huron County is not the only place in Ohio with addiction treatment centers. There are places to find care all over the state, including at Ohio Recovery Center.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Huron County, Ohio

There are 10 drug and alcohol rehab centers within a 25-mile radius of Huron County

Treatment centers are mostly located in Norwalk and Sandusky. Addiction treatment options in this area include everything from medical detox and inpatient treatment to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and outpatient care. 

Medical Detox

During medical detox, healthcare professionals at a detox center or addiction treatment program will help you as the drugs and/or alcohol are allowed to leave your system. While they do, withdrawal symptoms are likely to show up and they can be very unpleasant. 

Your medical professionals may prescribe medication to lessen these withdrawal symptoms and ensure your stability.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment or residential treatment is recommended for people with severe addictions and those who don’t have strong support systems at home. 

While there, you live at the treatment facility and receive care 24/7. Some of the programs you may find include behavioral therapy, group therapy, dual diagnosis, support groups, case management, mental health counseling, and aftercare.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is recommended for people with mild substance use disorder and supportive environments at home. There are generally three types of outpatient programs:  partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and standard outpatient programs. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

In MAT, you’re given approved medication specifically for alcohol or opioid use disorder. The medication helps ease cravings and lessen withdrawal symptoms. MAT also includes behavioral therapy along with medication.

Payment Options Accepted In Huron County, Ohio

While paying for addiction treatment may seem like a daunting experience, if you have a private health insurance plan or Medicaid/Medicare, your plan will likely cover some of the cost of treatment.
