Alcoholism, Drug Abuse, Mental Health, and Treatment in Ohio

Ohio Summary

Ohio, the Buckeye State and famous birthplace of seven presidents, also has its fair share of struggles. Ohio leads the nation in opioid overdose deaths as well as the highest death rate related to heroin. One in 14 deaths in the U.S. occurs from synthetic opioid overdose, and one in nine deaths from heroin. With California coming in second to overdose deaths and New York third, the number keeps rising in Ohio. It’s predicted that in 2016 and beyond, there will be over 3,050 annual deaths due to overdose.

In Ohio, painkiller addiction is just as common as alcoholism. Despite Ohio passing legislation to take active steps to reduce the number of narcotic pills prescribed in the state, addicts continue to abuse them, as well as drugs like heroin. At this point, experts say that Ohio is experiencing a heroin epidemic, with as many as 23 people dying daily in the state from overdoses. Marijuana, crack/cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA, prescription and synthetic drugs are all widely used. In 2013, more than 87,000 people were treated for addiction, with 33% being treated for alcoholism and 32% for opioid addiction.

Still, there is hope. Publicly funded treatment increases each year, and has more than doubled the numbers since 2008. An increase in awareness over opioid deaths has also caused more addicts to seek treatment.

Finally, Ohio also has a robust structure for treatment, including over 200 different drug and alcohol treatment and rehabilitation centers, which do accept Medicaid health insurance. This, combined with progressive laws, provides both coverage and hope for those with drug abuse, addiction disorders, and other substance abuse issues.

 Quick Ohio statistics

  • Ohio state population: 11.59 million

  • Number of people in Ohio who abuse alcohol and/or drugs: 683,000

  • In Ohio, 1.5 million of those 12 and older are binge drinkers

  • Number of people in Ohio with a mental illness: almost 500,000 as of July 2016

  • Although in Ohio heroin remains at the top of drug deaths, the main drug problem is with cocaine and crack cocaine

  • In Ohio, marijuana is the most popularly abused drug among for those under 18

 Alcoholism in Ohio

Addiction to alcohol is a critical health condition that can lead to damaging health issues like anemia, cancer, cardiovascular disease, cirrhosis, dementia, depression, gout, and more.

Ohio residents 18 and older rank higher than the national average when it comes to binge drinking. A huge problem is that most people don’t realize that they’re addicted, and withdrawal symptoms are difficult to handle. Those who try to stop drinking on their own can experience withdrawal symptoms ranging from mood swings, anxiety, irritability, nightmares, depression, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, increased heart rate, muscle tremors, convulsions, and hallucinations. All these symptoms of alcoholism withdrawal may quickly turn people back to drinking. Alcoholics should attempt to quit only in the confines of a treatment center with the support of the licensed facility team.

Once a person has detoxed from alcohol, it is important that they then address the psychology of why they reach for a drink. By allowing the person space to see, and sort through, their addictive behavior in a treatment center, it allows the person the best chance at a successful recovery.

Ohio has a plethora of treatment centers for those struggling with alcoholism. One such luxury rehab private facility is Arrow Passage Recovery in Massillon, Ohio. Arrow Passage Recovery specializes in the treatment of mental health, substance, drug and alcohol abuse. They offer medical detox and pride themselves on their one-on-one therapy and individual attention during the entire process.

Meridian Community Care - Main Campus is another option, a nonprofit, payment-assisted rehab facility located in Youngstown, Ohio. Meridian Community Care - Main Campus specializes in the treatment of substance, drug and alcohol abuse. They pride themselves on having a comprehensive medical and nonmedical approach and they accept a variety of insurances including Medicare that may pay for part, or all, of treatment.

In addition to formal treatment centers, Ohio residents can often find 12-step program meetings (like Alcoholics Anonymous) in their local communities.

Drug Abuse in Ohio

Treatment options for drug abuse include both luxury as well as state-run and other payment-assisted facilities. One such luxury rehab facility The Ridge, is a private rehab located in Milford, Ohio specializing in the treatment of substance, drug and alcohol abuse. It offers medically-assisted detox, a variety of treatment modalities and a luxury facility for recreational activity and nutritious meals. The Ridge believes that treatment requires a temporary disconnect from the patient’s life in order to heal, so no contact, other than private house phones, is a rule.

Maryhaven, is another private rehab located in Columbus, Ohio. Maryhaven specializes in the treatment of substance, drug and alcohol abuse. Maryhaven prides itself on being Central Ohio’s best-in-class integrated behavioral health services provider specializing in addiction recovery. Since 1953, more than 216,000 men, women and adolescents have been helped here. They have programs like Multidimensional Family Therapy (MDFT), Adult Outpatient Counseling and Gambling Intervention Programs.

Mental Health in Ohio

Mental illnesses are biologically-based brain disorders/medical conditions that disrupt a person’s feelings, thought processes, and daily functioning in the world.

Ohio’s state prison is said to have the largest number of mental health patients, in fact 10 times more than in Ohio’s six psychiatric hospitals. More than 10,500 people in the prison system have a diagnosed mental illness. That’s one in five prisoners.

Currently, almost half a million Ohio adults receive mental health and addiction services under the Medicaid expansion bill pushed through in 2014. Close to one in five of the new beneficiaries have severe mental illnesses, including psychosis, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Drug addiction and mental illness often go hand in hand.

Arrow Passage Recovery, located in Massillon, Ohio is one of the highest comprehensive care facilities for mental illness and co-occurring diagnosis. Arrow Passage Recovery specializes in the treatment of mental health, substance, drug and alcohol abuse (it is the same facility mentioned in the alcoholism section). They offer medical detox and pride themselves on the individual attention paid to each participant during the entire process.

One payment-assisted facility is River Center Clinic, a private rehab located in Sylvania, Ohio. River Center Clinic specializes in the treatment of mental health, and is specifically for those suffering from eating disorders like anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.

Another payment-assisted facility for the treatment of mental health is MetroHealth System – Inpatient, a public rehab center located in Cleveland, Ohio. They offer treatment for adults, young adults, children and teens as well as emotionally disturbed children. They have Spanish-speaking therapists and staff, as well as special programs for patients with HIV or AIDS.

How much does rehab cost in Ohio?

The cost of rehab varies, since certain facilities accept certain forms of insurance while others may not. Both private and public insurance policies cover substance abuse treatment to varying degrees. The best course of action is to contact your insurance provider and ask about substance abuse disorder treatment options in your area. You can also research treatment providers in your local area and ask what kind of insurance they accept.

If you don't have insurance, look for sliding scale programs, explore payment plans and other financing options, and look into SAMHSA grants.

Ohio has a number of treatment facilities that accept Medicaid and are available only to certain low-income individuals and families who fit into an eligibility group recognized by federal and state law. Medicaid sends payments directly to the drug rehab center where you seek treatment. Depending on state's rules in Ohio, you may also be asked to pay a small part of the cost (co-payment) for some addiction treatment services.

The good news is that there are over 200 different drug and alcohol treatment and rehabilitation centers which do accept Medicaid health insurance in Ohio, so there is a great deal of help available to people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. 

What is inpatient drug rehab Like?

When it comes to rehabilitation, much depends on the individual coming into a rehab facility, their diagnosis and unique situation. In general, alcohol rehab programs require a minimum stay of 28-30 days at the rehab facility. A person may stay 60-90 days, and almost never longer than 3 months. Long-term inpatient alcohol rehab can last anywhere from three months to a year.

The length of inpatient drug rehab programs can range from 28-90 days. Although they vary based on the individual, one of the most important elements to have in place is a solid aftercare program prior to leaving the facility. Where you go after inpatient rehab is critical to long-term success, and a solid plan should include things like a sober living facility (halfway house), ongoing emotional and psychological support (therapy), and group work and support (Alcoholics Anonymous, for example).

What are 203(K) rehab loans?

When dealing with addiction yourself (or a family member’s addiction), everyday chores such as repairing your home can be a struggle. Fortunately, Ohio offers a 203(k) rehab loan, also known as a “renovation loan”, which allows home buyers or owners to finance both the purchase or refinancing of their home, along with its renovation, through a single mortgage.

Normally this would require applying for multiple loans, but with an FHA 203(k) rehab loan, people can buy or refinance their primary home and renovate it with one loan.

Ohio: Looking ahead

Like many other states, the state of Ohio has a robust substance abuse landscape. Many people struggle with alcohol, heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine, as well as prescription drug addiction and other substance abuse disorders.

That said, Ohio is also a progressive state in many ways, with much of the law enforcement community and government taking action towards assisting those in recovery. Ohio has and will continue to provide opportunities for those seeking treatment to do so quickly and affordably. Whether to address an alcohol addiction, mental health issue, or drug addiction, where help is needed, help will be provided.
