Tuscarawas County Substance Use & Overdose Data

Of those 25 deaths, 21 were attributed to synthetic opioids (particularly the hyper-potent opioid drug fentanyl) while the remaining four were due to methamphetamine abuse.

According to figures published by the Ohio Department of Health, the county’s rate of age-adjusted unintentional drug overdose deaths was 35.6/100,000 in 2020, compared to 45.7/100,000 for the state of Ohio as a whole.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Tuscarawas County, Ohio

There are many options available for treating alcohol and drug addiction, both in Tuscarawas County and elsewhere in Ohio. Treatment options that may be recommended as part of a patient’s personalized treatment plan include:

Medical Detox

Quitting alcohol and other addictive drugs can produce temporary but uncomfortable and sometimes hazardous withdrawal symptoms.

Medical detox programs are available in both inpatient and outpatient settings to help participants navigate the withdrawal process with close emotional, social, and medical support before beginning an addiction treatment program.

Inpatient Treatment Programs

When a person develops a substance use disorder they also develop harmful habits that can become a significant obstacle to recovery. This is one reason why inpatient care is so highly recommended for addiction treatment. 

Inpatient programs take participants out of their typical environment for an extended period of intensive counseling and behavioral therapy in a focused and relaxed environment.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient drug rehab centers are more widely available and generally more flexible than inpatient programs, making this type of care an ideal solution for participants at different stages in the recovery journey.

Outpatient centers in Tuscarawas county offer a variety of outpatient treatment intensities, including regular outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and partial hospitalization programs (PHPs).

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

The most common options for MAT include methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone, which are dispensed by approved treatment providers in combination with counseling or therapy. 

While these drugs are not a cure for substance use disorder, they can effectively support those with opioid or alcohol addiction as they continue to develop their recovery long-term.
