Drug Addiction Treatment in Ohio
Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is beatable. We see success stories every day at OhioGuidestone, and our mission is to guide and help people in every facet of their recovery.
Drug addiction is a major issue affecting Ohio and threatening our communities. Yet, millions of Americans in drug addiction recovery remind us that treatment is effective. People can and do recover every day.
OhioGuidestone helps individuals not only at the point of care, but throughout the entire process, from assessment to recovery. Our comprehensive services are tailored to meet each person’s unique needs, allowing them to actively participate in determining what recovery means to them.
First, we must look at the question of why people do drugs. It helps to determine the right path to recovery.
Some want to:
- Fit in
- Find excitement
Drug use directly impacts the user’s perception of what is happening around them. Subsequently, behavior can be inappropriate, irrational and in some instances destructive.
When people who are battling drug addiction call OhioGuidestone, they already have cleared their highest hurdle – death. They have survived in a dangerous era of drugs that ruins lives, breaks up families and endangers others. They want a way out of addiction. They want to find the path to recovery. We have the directions. We are their GPS!
We hear it all the time. People want to know. “How did I get here?”
Looking at trends helps us to understand how. The Centers for Disease Control dates the opioid epidemic in three waves:
- Prescription opioids – Starting in the 1990s
- Heroin – Starting in 2010
- Synthetic Opioids and Fentanyl – Starting in 2013
Fentanyl is the game changer. It’s now laced in heroin, cocaine, and counterfeit pills. It kills indiscriminately.
There’s an overdose and there is death. Today, we are focused on keeping people alive not just treating addiction. There is an urgency in what we do – now more than ever. There has to be hope that people can be better, and I assure you, they can be better. They absolutely can. We see it happen every single day.

So, here’s the way out of drug addiction: You call, we listen. We really listen.
There is always more to the story, and we treat your individual needs. Many people do drugs to mask trauma. When they do drugs, they feel no pain. When they do drugs, they forget something bad that happened to them. When they do drugs, the world seems to be a better place. It’s artificial joy. It’s a temporary escape.
We help people cope, confront, work through, and persevere over difficult pasts and troubling present situations. We help them learn to feel again – to experience the real joys, the highs and yes, the lows. Drug free.
