Detox Services

If someone is ready to engage in alcohol and/or drug (AoD) treatment services, they must first be detoxed from the substance(s) of use. This is where detoxification services come in. Some substances, like alcohol and benzodiazepines, can be deadly to detox from, and require medical monitoring for the individual’s safety. After detoxification, the individual can then be linked with treatment services. Learn more about detox services available from the Board’s Network of Funded Providers. Contact Crisis Intervention and Recovery Center » by dialing the Crisis Hotline at 330-452-6000. Contact CommQuest Services (Regional Center for Opiate Recovery) » by dialing 330-837-9411.

Applies to CIRC: (Y) Sub-acute detoxification refers to detoxification services provided with twenty-four-hour medical monitoring. Services are of brief duration and linkage to other formal and informal services shall be made. Sub-acute detoxification may be provided in a hospital setting as a step-down service from acute detoxification, or may be provided in a free-standing setting with medical monitoring. This service shall be supervised by a physician, under a defined set of policies and procedures, who is licensed by the state of Ohio medical board.

Applies to ReCOR: (X) Ambulatory detoxification services means face-to-face interactions with an individual who is suffering mild to moderate symptoms of withdrawal, for the purpose of alcohol and/or drug detoxification. This service shall be supervised by a physician, under a defined set of policies and procedures, who is licensed by the state of Ohio medical board. Ambulatory detoxification services shall be provided by an outpatient program that is certified by the department of alcohol and drug addiction services. Department certified halfway house and residential treatment programs that want to provide ambulatory detoxification services need not obtain outpatient certification from the department.

StarkMHAR Care Network

Stark County residents can access behavioral health services regardless of their ability to pay through the Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery (StarkMHAR) Care Network. StarkMHAR funded service providers accept various insurance programs, Medicare and Medicaid. Stark residents that are not covered by one of those options can receive services. Their ability to pay for those services will be determined by their income and could be fully subsidized by StarkMHAR.

I don’t have insurance, but I need to see a counselor and/or psychiatrist. Are there options for me? Several of our treatment agencies work with individuals without insurance coverage, such as Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health, Crisis Intervention and Recovery Services, Coleman Professional Services and CommQuest Services. Contact information is listed on the StarkMHAR Care Network directory »
