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 (in most cases). 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 by dialing the Crisis Hotline at 330-452-6000 or contact CommQuest Detox at Aultman at (330) 830-3393.

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, Coleman Professional Services and CommQuest Services. Contact information is listed on the StarkMHAR Care Network directory »
