If you or your loved one live with addiction in Seneca County, you can find outpatient detox and rehab services in or near the city of Tiffin. Professional inpatient treatment services are also available outside of Seneca County, including at Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

From 2019 to 2020, accidental drug overdose deaths in Seneca County more than doubled. This region, like other areas of Ohio, continues to struggle with high rates of opioid, stimulant, alcohol, and prescription drug abuse.

Unfortunately, resources for drug and alcohol addiction treatment in the county are scarce, with as few as two drug rehab centers offering outpatient detoxification and rehabilitation services in the area.

However, Seneca County residents do have the option of traveling to inpatient treatment centers such as Ohio Recovery Center.

Seneca County Substance Use & Overdose Data

In 2020, Seneca County reported its highest ever annual number of accidental overdoses at 26, up from only 10 in the year prior. In 2021, this count declined slightly to 20.

The county’s age-adjusted rate of unintentional drug overdose deaths from 2015-2020 was 28.6/100,000, slightly lower than the average 37.4/100,000 reported for the state as a whole during the same time period.

According to information provided by the State of Ohio Integrated Behavioral Health Dashboard, the vast majority of overdose deaths in the state can be attributed to opioid abuse (fentanyl, heroin), followed by stimulants (methamphetamine, cocaine, prescription amphetamines), and then alcohol and other drugs.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Seneca County, Ohio

According to information provided by SAMHSA, there are as few as two outpatient drug rehab providers operating in Seneca County, both located near Tiffin.

A more complete spectrum of treatment services that may be recommended to Seneca County residents, either in their local area or elsewhere in the state, includes:

Inpatient & Outpatient Medical Detox

Detoxification involves quitting an addictive substance and allowing it to fully work out of your body. This can lead to uncomfortable or even hazardous withdrawal symptoms that can increase the risk of relapse as well as overdose.

Healthcare providers strongly recommend that anyone contemplating this process move forward with the security and support that can only be provided by a professional medical detox program.

Inpatient Treatment

Also called residential treatment, inpatient treatment programs bring participants into a comfortable residential treatment facility for an extended stay. 

This can help participants focus more deeply on the rigorous process of addiction recovery, which often includes individual or group counseling, behavioral therapies, peer support, and mental health treatment.

Inpatient treatment programs also often support graduates with professional aftercare programs for job placement, sober living housing, case management, and more.

Outpatient Treatment

Regular and intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment programs, including full-time partial hospitalization programs, are also available to support the residents of Seneca County who are able to commute to scheduled treatment sessions during the week.

While generally less intensive than residential programs, outpatient programs can meet the needs of a wide-range of people, including many who have already completed an inpatient program.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

In MAT programs, participants with alcohol or opioid addiction receive counseling and use FDA-approved medications like methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone to support their recovery long-term. 

These drugs have been shown to be effective in curbing cravings and other withdrawal symptoms or else serving as an effective form of relapse prevention when used as directed.
