Opioid Addiction Treatment

Opioid Addiction Treatment in Ohio

Treatment for opioid addiction has helped thousands break their dependence on these powerful drugs and start their recovery journey. It’s time to get your life back.

Opioid addiction often starts with a prescription for pain medication. As your body becomes dependent on it to function, you may find you’d do anything to take more.  According to the Ohio Department of Health, 2020 surpassed 2017 as the year with the most unintentional drug overdose deaths in Ohio, with many of these deaths attributed to opioids. Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost also says that Ohioans are dying at a devastating rate because of opioid overdoses.

Opioid overdoses have taken thousands of lives, but evidence-based addiction treatment saves lives and can help you start a new life in recovery.

What Is Opioid Use Disorder?

Opiates and opioids are highly addictive drugs. A person with an opioid use disorder has lost control of their opioid or opiate use and continues to take these drugs despite negative consequences. Willpower alone may not improve this medical condition; it often takes opioid addiction treatment.

  • Taking more or larger doses than prescribed
  • Withdrawal symptoms
  • Hiding opioid use from others
  • Hurt relationships
  • Needing higher doses for the same effects
  • “Doctor shopping”
  • Behavior or mood changes
  • Poor work or school performance

As of 2020, there were 47,820 opioid prescriptions written for every 100,000 residents in Franklin County, Ohio. In 2018, Ohio doctors wrote 53.5 opioid prescriptions for every 100 residents, which is above the national average of 51.4 per 100.

Consider these statistics as well:

  • In 2019 alone, the opioid fentanyl was involved in 76% of all overdose deaths in Ohio.
  • Ohio’s rate of babies born with neonatal abstinence syndrome/neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome was 11.6 incidents per 1,000 hospital births, compared to seven per 1,000 births nationwide. 
  • Data from the Franklin County Coroner’s Office shows 855 overdose deaths in the county in 2020, representing an increase of 83.9% since 2017. 

Of the 855 overdose deaths in Franklin County in 2020, 87% involved the synthetic opioid, fentanyl. This rate represents an increase that has occurred over the last four years.


Our Alcohol Rehab Programs in Ohio

Recovery happens in stages. Our alcohol rehab programs provide support at each stage to give you the best chance at lasting sobriety. 

Clients in inpatient rehab can devote themselves entirely to their recovery because they live onsite at the facility and receive daily, intensive addiction treatment. 

Outpatient rehab offers the most flexibility around work or school hours. Clients live at home and visit the facility regularly for treatment. 

Substance use often creates or worsens other mental health symptoms. We treat mental health and addiction symptoms together for a better life.

People with severe opioid use disorders may need medication to avoid the worst withdrawal symptoms and reduce their risk of relapse. 

While most benefit from attending inpatient rehab first, some clients benefit from getting their outpatient treatment online after more intensive care.

At The Recovery Village Columbus, we treat the whole person — not just their addiction. Our methods are backed by research and results, then personalized to meet each person’s needs. 

Personal Therapy

Our counselors work with each client one-on-one to address their symptoms and thought patterns to find the root of their addiction. 

Peer Support

Clients have regular group therapy sessions for support, guidance and fellowship with their peers in recovery. 

Continuum of Care

People are more likely to relapse if they leave treatment too early. Clients step down to lower levels of care as their condition improves so they always have the right amount of support.

Supportive Downtime

Recreational therapies, sports and invigorating vistas help people build relationships with drug-free peers and develop hobbies that support recovery.

Invigorating Meals

Opioid misuse can wreak havoc on your health. Our chef creates delicious, nutritious meals designed to boost recovery and motivate inpatient clients.

Relapse Prevention

At every stage of care, we’re preparing you for graduation. We’ll build a relapse prevention plan and connect you with vital post-treatment resources.
