Joshua Treatment Center


Located in the rural Toledo suburb of Holland, Ohio, Joshua Treatment Center (JTC) provides short-term residential treatment to adults struggling with addiction. Detox, medication-assisted therapy (MAT), and dual diagnosis treatment (to address co-occurring mental health disorders) are all available. JTC, which opened in early 2017, prioritizes collaboration with other community resources.


Rehab at Joshua Treatment Center typically begins with medically monitored detoxification for five to eight days, according to the facility’s official Facebook page. Residents then complete a 30-day treatment program.

JTC’s supports individuals through the early stages of recovery, frequently including those who have been in treatment previously and experienced relapse. The center takes a recovery oriented system of care (ROSC) approach, meaning the path toward stabilization and preparation for ongoing community care involves families and peer support, as well as integrated services addressing employment, housing, culture, and whole-person wellness.

A Toledo CBS-affiliate story reported in February 2017 that Joshua Treatment Center incorporates 12-step principles and practices into its program. Clients also have access to equine and horticultural therapies, according to an Ohio treatment facility directory.

After completing a month of residential treatment at JTC, clients then receive referrals to local outpatient services for continuing care.


The Joshua Treatment Center staff includes a physician, master’s-level therapists, and licensed addiction counselors. Some treatment team members have personal recovery experience.


Set on 28 acres in a 30,000-square-foot converted school building, Joshua Treatment Center can accommodate up to 32 residents, according to a Toledo Blade April 2017 story. With particular emphasis on heroin, the center reserves 12 beds for detoxing clients. Smoking is allowed in designated areas, and residents help maintain a community garden on-site.
