Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Portage County, Ohio

As stated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), there are 14 treatment facilities in Portage County. Those attending a drug or alcohol rehab may find various treatment options available.

Medical Detox

Detox is the short-term process in which your drug treatment consists of ridding the body of the unwanted chemicals and harmful toxins caused by drug or alcohol abuse. This form of treatment can be the first stage in addiction recovery.

Inpatient Treatment

Those who choose residential treatment may participate in behavioral therapy options such as group counseling and support groups. Inpatient treatment allows you to remain on-site at the treatment center where you will be surrounded by a team of medical professionals.

Those with a substance use disorder and mental health disorder (dual diagnosis) who have a serious drug addiction may benefit from inpatient care.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment programs do not require you to remain on-site, but you must attend the rehab facility numerous times during the week. 

Depending on the level of care you require, you may consider outpatient treatment options such as an intensive outpatient program (IOPs) or a partial hospitalization program (PHPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment

If a person lives with either opioid use disorder or alcohol use disorder, they may require medication-assisted treatment (MAT). This form of treatment combines medication with behavioral therapy.

Payment Options Accepted In Portage County

To determine whether you are in-network or out-of-network with your treatment provider, those with health insurance should contact the phone number on their insurance card. 

You can then determine if your coverage allows treatment for inpatient or outpatient care to help narrow down your addiction treatment options. For those without private health insurance, the state of Ohio provides insurance options like Medicare or Medicaid.
