Washington County Ohio has few locally available drug rehab centers outside of Marietta. Residents who would like to enroll in a professional rehab program can choose inpatient detox and rehabilitation at the Ohio Recovery Center in Van Wert.

Since 2019 more than a dozen Washington County residents have died from opiate, stimulant, alcohol, and combination drug overdoses each year. Many more are being saved by emergency personnel and ordinary citizens equipped with the opiate rescue medication Narcan.

Several drug and alcohol treatment services operate in Washington County, which are overseen by the Washington County Behavioral Health Board (WCBHB) in accordance with Ohio state law.

Alternatively, residents can participate in rehabilitation programs outside of the county, including the leading inpatient detoxification and treatment services hosted by Ohio Recovery Center.

Alcohol & Drug Rehab Options In Washington County, Ohio

According to SAMHSA, there are at least two outpatient substance abuse providers and one residential detoxification/addiction treatment center treating patients in Marietta.

Common treatment services that may be recommended to you through these or other alcohol and drug treatment providers include:

Medical Detox

When you first stop using drugs or alcohol, you may experience temporary drug cravings, sleep problems, or depression, along with potentially severe and dangerous withdrawal symptoms like hallucinations, seizures, and suicidal impulses.

Because of these risks, it is strongly recommended that those seeking treatment for alcohol or drug addiction begin their recovery journey by participating in an inpatient or outpatient detox program.

Inpatient Treatment Programs

Inpatient treatment is highly recommended for those with severe forms of substance use disorder, including those with co-occurring mental health disorders and those who have previously relapsed.

In an inpatient program, you participate in a personalized and highly intensive treatment plan likely featuring individual and group therapy, behavioral therapies, family therapy, and alternative therapies. Dual diagnosis care for co-occurring disorders may also be provided.

Outpatient Treatment Programs

Outpatient services are an ideal option for many people at many different stages in the recovery process, including those who have already completed inpatient drug or alcohol rehab.

Outpatient programs are widely available and are commonly offered in a range of different intensities, allowing you to receive the level of care that’s right for you while you continue to live at home and maintain your other personal responsibilities.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

If you’re living with opioid or alcohol addiction you may benefit from a medication-assisted treatment program that incorporates both counseling and the use of FDA-approved medications like methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone.

While MAT is not a cure for substance use disorder, it has been demonstrated to be effective in supporting the recoveries of many who rely on it.

Payment Options Accepted In Washington County, Ohio

While many treatment centers work hard to keep their services as widely accessible as possible, the types of payment that different organizations accept will vary.

Some of the most common payment options available in and around Washington County include:

  • cash or personal check
  • private health insurance benefits
  • government insurance (Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare)
  • local, state, or federal grants and other funding
