    Sandusky, Ohio Addiction Treatment Services

    Like many areas throughout Ohio, Sandusky and Erie County as a whole have struggled with rising substance abuse issues for many years. 

    If you or a loved one is ready to seek treatment for addiction, there are several local rehab centers where you find the care you need to get well.

    The Mental Health and Recovery Board (MHRB) of Erie and Ottawa Counties oversees all addiction services in Sandusky. If you need help finding the right treatment services for your individualized needs, you can:

    • call the Ohio CareLine
    • contact the MHRB directly, either by phone or email
    • call the Erie County crisis line (800-826-1306)

    Sandusky Alcohol & Drug Treatment Programs

    There are a wide variety of mental health and addiction treatment services available in Erie County. Depending on your needs and the recommendation of your treatment provider, any of the following levels of care may be included in your treatment plan:

    • detoxification
    • residential treatment
    • outpatient rehab
    • medication-assisted treatment
    • dual diagnosis treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders
    • aftercare 

    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Detoxification is an integral first step in the addiction treatment process as it allows your body to eliminate drugs and alcohol before you begin rehab. 

    A short-term stay in a medical detox facility provides around-the-clock care and supervision to help you safely manage withdrawal symptoms. 

    Inpatient/Residential Drug Rehab

    Most residential treatment programs take a whole-person approach to addiction rehab to address the complex and varied causes of substance abuse. 

    To provide a holistic treatment, these programs typically offer dual diagnosis therapy for mental health disorders, cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy, and several other forms of care. 

    Outpatient Treatment

    Outpatient programs allow individuals to maintain their day-to-day lives while they receive addiction treatment multiple times per week. 

    Both intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) provide similar health services as residential treatment, but they allow clients to go home after every session. 

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    If you live with opioid/opiate or alcohol addiction, your treatment provider may recommend medication-assisted treatment (MAT). As part of this program, you’ll receive medications to help alleviate physical and psychological substance dependence. 

    MAT programs may also involve behavioral therapy and counseling to provide a holistic approach to treatment and encourage long-term recovery. 


    As part of your rehab program, you’ll have access to aftercare resources for quite some time after you complete treatment. These resources are designed to help you stay strong in your recovery and may include sober-living housing, 12-step groups, counseling, and other support services. 

    Using Health Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Sandusky, Ohio

    If you have private healthcare insurance or a public policy like Medicaid/Medicare, you can use your insurance to help cover the cost of rehab. To find out what your policy covers and how to use your benefits, you can:

    • reach out to treatment centers to verify your coverage
    • contact your insurer for information about your benefits
    • review your policy thoroughly to understand your benefits and how they work

    If you don’t have health insurance, both nonprofit and state-funded rehab facilities typically offer treatment services on a sliding fee scale. Some rehab centers even provide treatment regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.
