TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Ohio 12-step meetings and aftercare programs from the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—join a community center or gym, and take long or short walks.
  • Access open or free addiction healthcare counseling or contact Ohio 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity—experience the arts and culture, amusement and water parks, historic attractions, outdoors, and museums.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Triggers include unmanaged stress and overwhelming situations.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through DRS or the Ohio Department of Addiction Services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Ohio Overdose Prevention Network.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available through the Ohio Department of Addiction Services.
  • Plan a family intervention by hiring a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol as it worsens the situation.

Long-Term Rehabs in Ohio

The professional opinion of DRS is that long-term substance use treatment provides the best opportunities for treatment and life-long sobriety. Here are some reasons why:

  • Individuals remain in treatment for an adequate time. Long-term programs provide well-rounded services that can last 30, 60, 90 days, or longer.
  • Ohio’s long-term rehab centers provide more structure, routine, health habits, and healthy behaviors. Clients are surrounded by people 24/7 and have time to learn and change their ways.
  • Residential long-term programs utilize more than one treatment methodology. No one form of treatment is right for every person. Therapy may include behavioral, holistic, faith-based, or experiential therapy.
  • Clients generally have access to 24/7 medical care and support, which is crucial for difficult withdrawal and underlying medical conditions.
  • Long-term programs have the time to attend to multiple needs, such as social, vocational, or legal problems.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Drug Rehab in Ohio

The cost of substance use treatment in Ohio depends on several factors. These can include the program length, type, and whether the person has health insurance coverage or not. Without insurance, rehab can be quite expensive. But thankfully, there are several options in Ohio for obtaining assistance with healthcare costs with or without health insurance. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in Ohio.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in Ohio

A private health insurance policy can be acquired through one’s employer or by paying for it. Private health insurance gives an individual an advantage when looking for rehab because most programs not funded by the state can only accept private health insurance. These policies can also substantially lower the cost of treatment.

Sadly, many people cannot afford private health insurance yet don’t meet the criteria to receive Medicare coverage. This is a common problem in many states. But thankfully, Ohio expanded its Medicare coverage program in 2013, and since then, enrollment has been up by 43 percent. Expanded Medicaid allows people who fall into this category to apply for assistance paying for private health insurance through participating providers.

The following insurers are available through the Ohio Health Insurance Marketplace Guide 2023:

  • AultCare
  • Ambetter
  • CareSource
  • Community Insurance Company
  • Medical Health Insuring Corp. of Ohio
  • Molina
  • Oscar Buckeye State Insurance Corporation
  • Oscar Insurance Corporation of Ohio 
  • Paramount
  • SummaCare
  • UnitedHealthcare

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Despite the resources mentioned above, some people will still not have insurance coverage to help them pay for treatment. In those cases, certain facilities may work with them if they are experiencing financial hardship. They may utilize a form of assistance known as sliding scale payments. With a sliding scale, the less income a person makes, the lower the program cost. Private pay options also offer payment plans so the cost may be broken up into smaller payments.

You can contact one of the treatment specialists at DRS for more information on how to pay for treatment, or contact the center directly.

Ask a Professional

  • What is the cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Ohio?

    The cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services in Ohio varies, yet there are some average costs for treatment. Generally, the price depends on location, amenities, services, type of program, and length of time.

    • The average cost of residential drug rehab without health insurance in Ohio is $56,600. This cost can vary significantly depending on the facility and your insurance.
    • The average cost of outpatient drug rehab is $1,700. Yet, it will go up depending on how long a person attends the program. For example, attending outpatient for three months can be, on average, $5,000.
    • Drug and alcohol detox in Ohio costs between $250 and $800 daily, can be even more if medical detox is required.
    • There are also free and low cost options in Ohio for those who qualify.
  • How long does someone have to remain at a drug and alcohol rehab center in Ohio?

    The length of time someone must remain at a drug or alcohol rehab center in Ohio varies for each person. Generally, it depends on addiction severity and other underlying issues.

    However, there are average time frames to help you determine the type of program needed:

    • The average length of stay at an inpatient rehabilitation program is 28 to 30 days. This is generally a hospital-based or medical setting.
    • The average stay at a residential drug rehab program outside the hospital system is three to six weeks. Some programs offer 6 to 12 months yet are not necessarily located in Ohio.
    • The average outpatient drug rehab program offers services for three months. Yet programs can also be shorter.
    • The average length of stay at a clinical drug or alcohol detox center in Ohio is generally a seven-day minimum. Depending on withdrawal symptoms and underlying medical conditions, medical detox may last 7 to 14 days or longer.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Ohio?

    Based on treatment admissions, Ohio’s most commonly abused drugs are marijuana and amphetamines.

    Suppose you or someone you know begins to exhibit the signs of alcoholism or marijuana addiction. Rehabilitation is critical to address these addictions. Marijuana is often considered a gateway drug and is commonly abused with alcohol.

DRS’ Evaluation of Ohio Drug Treatment

There are extensive substance use treatment options in Ohio. Most of the programs are private non-profit operations. Yet, there are limited resources operated at the state and local levels. We recommend contacting more than one program and asking about the admission process. Overall, there is an abundance of outpatient care available. In addition, residential programs and detox centers in Ohio are numerous, which is a plus, because residential programs are more optimal. If you are struggling to decide, an addiction assessment with a qualified professional will help.

Financially, substance use treatment is relatively affordable in the state. Most of the substance use treatment options accept Medicaid or private health insurance. A little less than half take state-financed health insurance plans other than Medicaid. Also, over half offer a sliding fee scale for low-income clients. Our experts recommend contacting more than one program. Ask about payment options. Contact your local Medicaid office or health insurance provider. Find out what insurance covers and begin narrowing the search from there.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
