Available Alcohol & Drug Rehab Services In New Philadelphia, Ohio

Of the rehab centers in and around New Philadelphia, most offer different levels of care that include:

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


Detox is the first step in the recovery process and involves letting all substances exit your system. This should be done under medical supervision because long-term abuse often leads to dependency and withdrawal symptoms. 

Healthcare providers can prescribe medication to treat withdrawal symptoms and make you more comfortable during a medical detox program. Detox is generally recommended for anyone coming off of alcohol, benzodiazepines, opioids, stimulants, and synthetic drugs.

Inpatient Treatment

With inpatient treatment, you stay at a residential facility where you live in a controlled environment away from the triggers or distractions of everyday life. During treatment, you participate in behavioral therapy, group therapy, family counseling, and recreational activities.

How long inpatient care lasts depends on the facility but lasts about 30-90 days on average.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment is another option you can take after detox. Instead of staying at a facility, you go to a treatment center each day and then go home after your sessions. The sessions focus on relapse prevention and individual and group therapy.

There are two types of outpatient treatment programs that are nearly as extensive as inpatient treatment, including partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) and intensive outpatient programs (IOPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is recommended for those living with alcohol or opioid addiction. During MAT, you’re prescribed certain medications that are approved to treat these two disorders. 

Approved medications include methadone, buprenorphine, and disulfiram that help ease cravings and heal some of the damage done to the body by alcohol or drug abuse.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

For anyone who has another mental health disorder on top of addiction, dual-diagnosis treatment can be a great option. You receive treatment for both issues simultaneously so that one disorder doesn’t negatively affect the treatment and progress of the other.


When you leave treatment, you don’t suddenly lose all the support you had during rehab. Many treatment programs offer aftercare support to help patients transition back into everyday life. This can be in the form of employment assistance, sober-living houses, and/or counseling.

Paying For Addiction Treatment In New Philadelphia, Ohio

Even before checking in to substance abuse treatment, knowing how you’re going to pay for it can be a big stressor. Luckily, Medicare/Medicaid and private insurance usually cover most of the cost of treatment.

If you’re uninsured, other payment options include financial assistance or sliding-scale fees.
