Ohio State's Talbot Addiction Medicine has helped more people with drug and alcohol addiction problems than any other program in central Ohio.

The caring staff of the Ohio State's Talbot Addiction Medicine offer the proven treatments that can help individuals achieve and maintain sobriety. Since 1974, the staff of Talbot Addiction Medicine have led thousands of Ohioans to recovery and an improved physical, mental, behavioral, emotional and spiritual well-being. Talbot Addiction Medicine is one of only a very few central Ohio addiction programs that offer medication-assisted treatment.

Ohio State staff offer these adult services for drug addiction and alcoholism in its 25-bed Talbot Addiction Medicine facility:

Inpatient Detoxification – An intensive, medically managed program in which patients are prescribed medication to facilitate a safe and more comfortable withdrawal from chemicals. Once the person is stabilized, education, skills training, counseling and participation in a 12-Step program are offered and encouraged.

Partial Hospitalization – Structured care program for at least five hours during the typical eight-hour workday. This program offers an alternative to more costly overnight hospitalization while providing support for those who may not be ready to make a full return to home or work.

Intensive Outpatient – Three-hour sessions are attended three times per week. Sessions, offered in the mornings and evenings, allow individuals to maintain family and work responsibilities while moving forward in recovery. Family programming is offered and 12-Step participation is encouraged. Upon completion of this program, the person is offered continuing-care group sessions for one year, free of charge.

Outpatient – Individual or group therapy that is approximately one hour per week to help the person learn and practice skills to manage the addiction disorder.
