Where Is Rehab Treatment Located in Ohio?
Ohio drug and alcohol addiction rehab facilities are located throughout the state. In 2020, there were 619 facilities dedicated to substance abuse treatment, 373 of which are state-funded rehab facilities.2 The facilities provide a range of treatment options such as:2
- 548 facilities offered outpatient rehab.
- 129 centers provided residential rehab treatment (non-hospital) services.
- 40 facilities offered inpatient hospital care.
Often, rehab facilities are located near larger cities, such as Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati, but there are treatment centers in and around smaller towns, too.
In addition, out-of-state treatment—located not far from an airport—is another option to consider. There are benefits to seeking treatment away from home, including:
- The removal of a toxic environment or people that act as triggers and might be tempting, especially in the early stages of recovery.
- A change. Sometimes attending treatment in another state feels like the fresh start needed to begin a drug- and alcohol-free life.
- It’s easier to remain in treatment for the entirety of recommended time when you can’t just drive or car share home.
What Is the Cost of Rehab in Ohio?
The cost of rehab varies widely based on several factors, including the type and length of treatment, the facility’s location, and available amenities. A little more than 78% of the 619 Ohio rehab centers accept private insurance plans.2
When comparing facilities and assessing costs, consider these factors:
- Treatment options, including inpatient, outpatient, and drug detox
- Licensing, accreditations and certifications of the facility and staff
- Types of services offered, including special programs for specific populations
- Insurance coverage accepted
- Financial payment plan availability
- Scholarship or sliding-fee scale options
Additionally, if you have special needs that must be addressed, ensure the facility can handle them.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Treatment in Ohio?
Insurance may cover at least part of the cost of treatment thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which requires private insurance companies to provide its members with substance abuse treatment in some form. Basically, that means that, for the most part, insurers cannot deny coverage for AUD or SUD treatment. The specifics, of course, depend on the benefits and details in each individual health care plan.
And nearly all the 619 rehab facilities in Ohio accept some form of insurance, including:2
- Private health insurance, accepted by 94% of the rehab centers.
- Medicare, which is accepted at nearly 57% of the rehab facilities.
- Medicaid, which 93% of the treatment centers take.
- State-financed health insurance (other than Medicaid) is accepted at more than 48% of the facilities.
- Federal military insurance, taken by more than 46% of Ohio’s treatment centers.
- Tribal urban funds or IHS, which is accepted by 4.4% of the rehab facilities in the state.
