Ross County Substance Use & Overdose Data

According to official figures, 55 residents of Ross County died from accidental drug overdoses in 2020, followed by 56 in 2021. 

Given the county’s relatively small population, this translates to an age-adjusted rate of accidental drug overdose of around 74.4/100,000 residents, the 10th worst rate recorded for all counties of Ohio in 2020.

In 2021, 48 of the recorded 56 deaths were attributed to opioid overdose, primarily synthetic opioids and fentanyl in particular. However, 35 of these opioid-related deaths also involved stimulant abuse using cocaine, methamphetamine, or prescription drugs (“speedball” overdoses).

Other drug combos, including those involving alcohol, were also recorded.

Substance Abuse Treatment Options In Ross County, Ohio

Addiction is a hazardous, harmful, but treatable behavioral health disorder with a wide variety of treatment options and formats available. These include services offered by at least seven outpatient providers and one inpatient/outpatient provider in or near Chillicothe.

Services included in your personalized treatment plan may include:

Medical Detox

Drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms can be challenging, dangerous, or even life-threatening. Fortunately, medical detoxification programs are available to help you overcome chemical dependency safely with the help of attentive medical professionals in a secure environment.

Inpatient Treatment Programs

If you struggle with severe, unmanageable substance abuse, have relapsed, or struggle with a co-occurring mental health disorder, then inpatient treatment at a residential drug rehab center may be right for you.

During your treatment program you should expect to work closely with providers while participating in a regimented daily schedule that may feature individual and group therapy, behavioral therapy, dual diagnosis care, and other interventions.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Depending on where you live, you may be able to access local outpatient care including regular outpatient services, part-time intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and full-time partial hospitalization programs (PHPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

While MAT programs are only suitable for addressing opioid and alcohol use disorders, medications like methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone have demonstrated to be an effective treatment aid when combined with counseling and/or behavioral therapy.
