Substance Abuse in Lorain, OH

As in many parts of Ohio and the nation, drug overdose death rates are spiking in Lorain. Lorain County Health Commissioner Mark Adams recently spoke out, sounding an alarm on overdose deaths in 2022.

In 2021, 147 people died nationwide because of an overdose, higher than in 2020 and 2019.

Lorain County Public Health says fentanyl is of particular concern and is often sold on the street in pills made to look like Xanax or Adderall.

Other drugs of concern in Lorain include heroin, methamphetamine (meth) and cocaine. In the Cleveland region, officials say fentanyl is easier to obtain than heroin.

Methamphetamine is increasingly being used in the area because of its low cost and high potency. The illicit misuse of Neurontin (gabapentin) is also on the rise.

Outpatient Rehab

Our outpatient treatment programs include individual and group therapy, medical care, dual diagnosis care for co-occurring disorders and medication-assisted treatment, when appropriate. 

Outpatient rehab emphasizes privacy, self-monitoring and mobility to maintain commitments to your family, job, school or other personal obligations. It can help patients transition from residential treatment to a sober lifestyle.

Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHPs)

Our partial hospitalization program helps patients transition smoothly toward independence in their recovery. You continue participating in medical and therapeutic programming during the day, with more free time throughout to build healthy habits. In this transitional period, you can start learning how you’ll manage your recovery while still receiving a high level of support.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Substance use disorders and mental health disorders often occur together. When someone has a co-occurring mental health disorder, it needs dual diagnosis treatment. Both disorders are treated at the same time, improving the patient’s chances for a successful recovery.

The recovery journey is just starting once treatment ends, which is why each patient’s treatment plan includes a comprehensive aftercare plan. Your aftercare plan may include referrals and recommendations for:

  • Online therapy with Nobu, our mental wellness app
  • Support groups and 12-step programs in your community
  • Health care appointments
  • Follow-up therapy and counseling appointments
  • Medication management
  • Sober living accommodations

A thorough and well-designed aftercare plan improves the chances of remaining sober after rehab. An aftercare plan aims to help you use your learned coping strategies to deal with real-world situations. You can continue your therapeutic work in your community and begin to pursue goals you have for yourself, personally and professionally. An aftercare plan can help you build a support and accountability system and remain committed to healthy living habits.
