If you’re a resident of Madison County, Ohio, you can access addiction treatment services in the county seat of London. Or, if you prefer, you can explore alternative treatment facilities like Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

While rural areas, such as Madison County, have lower than average rates of addiction and overdose and may only report a dozen or so deaths a year, alcohol abuse and drug abuse nevertheless remain a pervasive issue.

With treatment providers spread so thinly, however, residents may not have local access to an outpatient drug rehab center or clinic, emphasizing the importance of reliable, professional inpatient treatment centers like Ohio Recovery Center.

Mental and behavioral healthcare services in Madison County are overseen, evaluated, and funded by the Mental Health & Recovery Board of Clark, Greene, & Madison Counties (MHRB)

  • directories of resources curated for businesses, criminal justice officers, educators, emergency staff, healthcare worker, government officials, and the general public
  • crisis and informational hotlines and other phone numbers for each county in the MHRB service area

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Madison County, Ohio

While the SAMHSA does not list any treatment providers in Madison County, the MHRB directory does identify one inpatient/outpatient treatment provider in the city of London, as well as a medical detox provider attached to a county hospital and a MAT clinic.

Common levels of care that may be recommended to you through these or other treatment centers include:

Medical Detox

The symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal can vary from mild discomfort to life-threatening seizures or suicidal ideation. As such, healthcare providers strongly recommend that those facing drug/alcohol withdrawal seek out professional help.

Medically assisted detoxification programs are staffed by trained professionals who can help guide you through the withdrawal process safely, preparing you for other addiction treatment services.

Inpatient Treatment Programs

If you have tried to recover from alcohol or drug addiction in the past, have a co-occurring mental illness like anxiety, depression, or PTSD, or feel overwhelmed by the recovery process and unsure where to start, inpatient alcohol or drug treatment may be the best option for you.

Individual and group therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, and alternative therapies are just some of the services you may participate in as you live inside a comfortable rehab facility and work to build effective coping strategies and motivation.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

For those who don’t need to participate in an inpatient addiction treatment program, outpatient rehab can offer a flexible, affordable, and accessible solution.

These programs vary from regular outpatient programs to more intensive formats like part-time intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and full-time partial hospitalization programs (PHPs). In each case, you’ll continue living at home with your loved ones while working through the recovery process.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

In MAT programs, FDA-approved medications like naltrexone and methadone help support the recoveries of participants who have struggled with either opioid or alcohol addiction. 

These medications, when used long-term in combination with counseling and behavioral therapy, have been shown to have a significantly positive and beneficial impact on the treatment outcomes of those who use them.

Payment Options Accepted In Madison County, Ohio

Depending on the services you receive, your income, and your provider, you may be able to cover the cost of your treatment in many ways, which could include financial aid programs set aside for those who qualify.

Commonly accepted payment options in and around Madison County include:

  • cash or personal check
  • private health insurance benefits
  • government insurance (Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare military insurance)
  • local, state, or federal grants and other funding sources
