When you come to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for treatment for substance use disorder, we’re able to offer hope, support and professional treatment in your efforts to regain control of your life.

One of the main reasons the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center is a leader in substance use disorder treatment in Columbus, Ohio, is because of our specially trained, dedicated addiction specialists.

Not only are they compassionate and respectful, but they have unmatched expertise in identifying, diagnosing and treating people with substance use and other addictive disorders.

They also conduct research as part of a large academic medical center to find new ways to prevent addiction from occurring in the first place, and through The Ohio State University College of Medicine, they manage an Addiction Medicine fellowship program to train the next generation of addiction experts.

Addiction medicine is a collaborative effort, and our team spans many departments across the hospital. If you’re treated here, you’ll have psychiatrists, addiction medicine physicians, psychologists, trained nurses, licensed social workers, counselors and therapists be a part of your care.
