Toledo is one of the most populated cities in Ohio state, and it is located on the shores of one of our beautiful Great Lakes. Sadly, Toledo also faces alarming drug abuse rates; the number of people addicted to opioids, like Fentanyl and heroin, in the city is rising, leading to tragic overdose deaths.

Thankfully, the Toledo community has come together to provide a wealth of addiction treatment options for its residents who are battling substance abuse. If you’re ready to get help for your addiction, these rehab facilities are ready to jump in and work towards recovery with you.

The best overall addiction rehab in Toledo is, without a doubt, Midwest Recovery Center. This comprehensive treatment center offers services on a full continuum of care, from inpatient treatment to outpatient programming and even sober living facilities.

Although we wouldn’t consider this a luxury rehab, their facilities are very comfortable; it offers a home-like environment with special amenities like on-site yoga.

Perhaps best of all, Midwest Recovery Center offers a scholarship program for Black patients. They understand that the Black community in Ohio faces societal oppression that makes it harder for people to get the treatment they need; the scholarship makes it so that finances don't need to be a factor. It’s clear that Midwest Recovery Center truly cares about serving everyone in the Toledo community.

This affordable rehab is an excellent option if you’re primarily looking for outpatient treatment. They have three levels of outpatient programming with varying intensities, including partial hospitalization (full-day treatment), an intensive outpatient program, and weekly outpatient counseling. Their high-quality services are provided by qualified staff: licensed therapists, certified substance abuse counselors, and care coordinators.

What makes this rehab unique is that it was largely founded by people in recovery in the Toledo community. The recovery community here decided to come together to fight - together - against the suffering that substance abuse brings to so many lives.

On top of providing treatment services, they also work towards raising awareness about addiction in the greater community and destigmatizing this disease.

Those who are battling an opioid addiction (to drugs like heroin and pain pills) often benefit from safe alternative medications to help curb cravings, especially when they’re first getting clean. Toledo Treatment Services (a clinic run by Pinnacle Treatment) provides access to these medications for people in the area.

Although they don’t prescribe methadone, they use Suboxone, a popular alternative. If you’re looking for methadone, pay a visit to Passion of Mind.

On top of Suboxone, the staff at Toledo Treatment Services also provide individual and group therapy using CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and life skills training. They accept most private insurance plans as well as Medicaid as payment, which means that treatment here will be the most affordable it can be.

The Zepf Center is a non-profit organization that’s been providing mental health services for Toledo’s residents since 1974 - including for substance use disorder. Although they provide mental health services for all ages, their addiction services are specifically for adults. There is, however, an emergency homeless shelter for teens here, if you’re a young person whose addiction has led you to lose your housing.

For adults, there is a full continuum of addiction services available: from detox to outpatient. Not only can they help adults with drug and alcohol addiction, but they can also help with other types of problem behaviors like gambling addiction.

They can provide alternative medications to help walk away from opioid addiction, and they even have recovery housing available for after you’ve left inpatient treatment.

Ohio has a large Christian population: around three-quarters of the state belongs to this religion. If you consider yourself a part of the Christian faith and are looking for a rehab that reflects that, you should consider New Concepts. This rehab provides faith-based addiction treatment for clients of all ages: adolescents, young adults, and adults. Although they treat adolescents, their Intensive Outpatient Program is only for adults. If you’re looking for an IOP for teens, A Renewed Mind might be a good option.

New Concepts doesn’t only rely on Christianity for treatment, however. They employ licensed therapists, some of whom have doctorate degrees, and they have psychiatry services available as well. Because of the excellent caliber of their counselors, they’re able to treat people suffering from dual diagnosis mental health conditions as well.

For men in Toledo, the best option for sober living is run by The Open Door Ministry.

This sober living home has been opening its doors to Toledo’s recovery community since the 1980s. They have room to house 24 men for up to 24 months, making it a great long-term rehab option.

The same scholarship for Black patients is available here as well.

At Midwest Detox Center, patients are placed in gender-separated facilities where they stay for a few days while they go through detox. If you’d like to continue your treatment after you’ve detoxed, you will be welcome in their inpatient recovery center, which makes for a seamless transition.

This means that if you’re experiencing a mental health condition on top of your addiction, the staff at Unison Health will be able to help you.

The inpatient unit at Unison Health is only open to adults, but they also offer outpatient services for teens between the ages of 11 and 18. For teens, they use an evidence-based addiction treatment model called Seven Challenges to help them.

Another clinic to treat opioid addiction in Toledo, BrightView is an excellent option for those looking for medication-assisted treatment in the area.

They do, however, have a pretty extensive list of medications that they can provide, including Suboxone, buprenorphine, and Vivitrol.

The staff here is known to be wonderfully compassionate and dedicated to creating a supportive, community-like environment for all of their patients. The clinic accepts both Medicare and Medicaid as treatment, and they won’t turn you away even if you’re uninsured and aren’t able to pay for services.

Women going through recovery often are more successful when they’re surrounded by a community of other women who support one another on the path. In Toledo, you can find this kind of community at NAOMI Transitional Housing.

This sober living facility provides 10 women at a time with a safe and sober living environment where they can focus on their recovery. If you’re a man looking for a similar community, The Open Door Ministry might be what you’re looking for.

NAOMI stands for “New Attitude On My Image”, and the home focuses on supporting recently incarcerated women who suffer from substance use disorder to do just that: gain a new attitude and better self-esteem. There is a reasonable rental fee to live here, but since NAOMI is associated with the Friendship Baptist Church, no one is turned away for lack of funds.

If you’ve been charged with an OVI (Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence) because of your addiction, the best place to go for treatment in Toledo is Talbot Services. This rehab has both outpatient and short-term inpatient programming to help you satisfy your OVI requirements and get you started on the road to recovery at the same time.

Talbot is special because it used to be a lot more than what it is today; their OVI services is the only thing that remains of the former Talbot Center, a more comprehensive rehab that sadly had to close its doors in 2006. Because of this, the staff here is passionate about helping people beyond just getting them out of legal trouble.

They operate a 24/7 walk-in urgent care clinics for behavioral health treatment, a recovery helpline, and a crisis stabilization unit which provides inpatient services for all ages for up to 5 days.

Unfortunately, just like medical emergency rooms, no one can predict the amount of time you’ll have to wait at this rehab - on some occasions, patients have waited for hours. It shouldn’t be your first choice if you’ve already planned to go into rehab, but if you or a loved one are facing a mental health emergency due to addiction, Rescue can come to save you at any hour.

This excellent and comprehensive rehab is located about an hour away from Toledo, in Sandusky. The standard of care here is excellent; although they are focused on 12-step programming, they offer evidence-based group therapy an impressive seven days a week in their inpatient program.

If you opt for their non-residential full-day treatment (PHP), you will receive the same interventions six days a week.

If you’ve found yourself strapped for funds, consider applying for their scholarship program. Their Ben Scholarship is named after someone who was clearly loved by someone at the Recovery Institute, and can help you get the financial help you need to be able to afford rehab.

These sober living apartments are 12-step based; every man who lives here needs to attend meetings, pass random drug tests, and get a sponsor soon after moving in. There is zero tolerance for relapse or violence here.

The facility is unique in that rather than being one house in which residents rent out rooms, it is a huge apartment complex where men live in independent units, complete with a kitchen, an eating and study area, a bathroom, and a bedroom. There are also welcoming community spaces where you can hang out with other men in recovery; you’ll meet these men every week at a building-wide progress meeting, as well.

Lucas County’s UMADAOP, which stands for Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program, specializes in providing much-needed addiction care for disenfranchised communities in the Toledo area, especially People of Color. Unfortunately, marginalized communities often don’t have access to equal treatment opportunities; UMADAOP fills that gap.

Some of the programs that this excellent organization offers are non-intensive outpatient services for adults in the community with substance use disorder, an addiction prevention program for young adults under the age of 25, and a program for women. There is also a sober living facility, called the SOAR Program, available for women only. UMADAOP is a cornerstone in the Toledo recovery community, and their services are of an excellent caliber.

Passion of Mind in nearby Monroe, MI (only around 20 miles away from Toledo) earned a spot on our list by being the best methadone clinic in the area. Methadone is typically prescribed as a safer, alternative medication for people coming off of heroin. Although other MAT clinics in Toledo provide medications like Suboxone or Vivitrol, Passion of Mind is one of the only ones that prescribes methadone.

Passion of Mind is a small clinic where all patients feel warmly welcomed. They open very early in the morning, so that you can be sure to get your daily dose before your day starts. The office is very clean and organized; Toledo residents needing methadone are lucky to have this clinic in their community.

People battling eating disorders need a different, more specialized kind of rehab. Although most addiction rehabs treat mental health conditions, eating disorders often require a more intense form of treatment because of the serious (and sometimes lethal) physical consequences that these disorders can bring with them. If you are struggling with an eating disorder in Toledo, the Toledo Center for Eating Disorders should be the first place you call.

This rehabilitation center in nearby Sylvania provides both inpatient and intensive outpatient care for adults and teens with eating disorders. Their programs have individual, group, and family therapy components; the therapists who provide these services use evidence-based practices like Motivational Interviewing, DBT, and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).

Although many people prefer a home-like environment for rehab, others may benefit from a hospital setting while they’re recovering. Especially if you are battling a dual diagnosis (a serious mental health condition along with substance use disorder), you might want to consider going through rehab at Arrowhead Behavioral Health, a psychiatric hospital in the Toledo area.

There are different options for treatment here, like specialized treatment programs for mental illness, substance use disorder, and dual diagnosis. Their PHP is separated into one program for psychiatric patients and another for people battling addiction. The IOP here is only available for people with substance use disorder. All of their programs use evidence-based practices, as would be expected from a behavioral health hospital.

This outpatient behavioral health clinic provides mental health and substance abuse treatment for both adults and teens in the Toledo community. On top of their outpatient programming for adults, they also have a sober living facility as well as school-based treatment and a summer program for local teens.

Empowered for Excellence describes itself as a faith-based agency, but they work with all clients (regardless of faith) using evidence-based practices, not Christian-based ones. If your faith is your primary value and you’re looking for a rehab that reflects that, New Concepts is an excellent Christian rehab in the area.

A Renewed Mind is a local organization that offers an impressive number of addiction treatment services to the Toledo recovery community. Their residential treatment program is only for men battling addiction, but their intensive outpatient programs welcome both men and women.

It’s noteworthy that their IOP has a lower minimum therapy requirement than most other programs - 9 weekly hours - which might make it a good option for people with busy schedules.

Where A Renewed Mind really shines is in their adolescent programming. There is a program specifically for at-risk young adults (under the age of 25) who have transitioned out of the foster care system and have found themselves homeless. They also offer an intensive outpatient addiction program for adolescents, as well as weekly individual therapy.
