Medically Reviewed By: Manish Mishra, MBBS


With both inpatient and outpatient treatment providers in close proximity, residents of Norton have access to mental and behavioral healthcare. Leading evidence-based addiction treatment programs are also available at Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

Drug or alcohol addiction is not only devastating on a personal level, it also has a tremendous impact on family members, loved ones, and the community at large.

To combat the high level of fentanyl, methamphetamine, and prescription drug abuse in Summit County, public health officials and treatment providers have come together to offer residents of Norton easy access to local inpatient and outpatient substance abuse treatment options.

Substance Use Disorder Treatment Options In Norton, Ohio

There are at least five outpatient treatment providers and one inpatient treatment provider operating within five minutes of Norton, and recovery services are funded and overseen by the Summit County ADM Board. 

Additional recovery programs are also available in and around nearby population centers like Massillon, Cleveland, and Akron.

Specific addiction services that may be recommended to Norton residents as part of their personalized treatment plan include:

  • medical detoxification
  • outpatient treatment services
  • inpatient treatment programs
  • medication-assisted treatment
  • dual diagnosis services
  • aftercare support

These services are all available through local providers, though Norton residents may also choose to participate in treatment programs located elsewhere in Ohio, including those hosted by Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

Medical Detoxification

Detoxification and withdrawal is a challenging process, especially if attempted alone and without the help of experienced medical professionals.

To avoid the complications of withdrawal (seizures, dehydration, relapse, overdose, etc.) healthcare professionals strongly advise that anyone who is dependent on drugs or alcohol begin the recovery process with physical, emotional, and social support in a medical detox program. 

This is the safest option for preparing people to join other addiction recovery services.

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab programs in and around Norton are divided between regular outpatient counseling programs, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and partial hospitalization programs (PHPs).

This variety allows outpatient rehab facilities to effectively support the recoveries of different participants without taking them away from their normal home environment, their loved ones, and their responsibilities at school or in the workplace.

Inpatient Rehab

Residential treatment programs, in contrast, provide a highly focused and intensive setting for drug and alcohol treatment that fully separates participants from their normal environment and the habits and substance use triggers waiting there.

Participants will live inside an inpatient addiction treatment facility for their entire treatment duration, participating in interventions such as:

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Those who struggle with a substance use disorder also often struggle with other co-occurring disorders like personality disorders, PTSD, depression, anxiety, ADHD, schizophrenia, and many others.

Dual diagnosis care is designed to address both a substance use disorder and contributing mental health issues, helping participants understand the harmful interplay between them and develop positive long-term coping strategies to better maintain their mental and behavioral wellness.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid use disorder. Likewise, acamprosate, disulfiram, and naltrexone are approved to treat alcohol use disorder.

These MAT medications are dispensed by approved drug treatment centers in combination with counseling and therapy and have been demonstrated to have a positive impact on the long-term recoveries of those who use them as directed.

Aftercare Programs

Recovery is a lifelong process, and those who complete an addiction treatment program should be supported through aftercare programs like sober living housing, facilitation of peer support groups, employment counseling, case management, and more.

You can contact prospective addiction treatment centers directly to learn what continuing support they are able to provide.
