Headquartered in southeast Columbus, Ohio, Maryhaven is a private, nonprofit provider of behavioral healthcare services, specializing in addiction recovery. The organization operates six facilities, of which this center in southeast Columbus is the main campus.

Across the organization as a whole, Maryhaven provides both inpatient and outpatient detox, plus residential and outpatient programs for adults and adolescents. The office at this address provides outpatient counseling and case management services for individuals struggling with substance use disorder, dual diagnosis, and gambling addiction, including medication-assisted outpatient treatment.


Upon admission, clients participate in an initial substance use assessment to determine a continuum of care and identify clinical goals. The residential detox program (available at other facilities in the network) provides sub-acute care, including 24-hour monitoring from registered nurses. Outpatient detox provides medication and counseling seven days a week, while clients remain in their own homes.

Residential treatment varies in length according to the client’s needs, and includes a mix of daily therapeutic activities, such as individual and group therapy, family counseling, therapeutic recreation, and 12-step support groups. The residential program for adolescents also integrates regular schooling from licensed teachers, as well GED prep and practice testing.

Medication-assisted therapy (MAT) using methadone, buprenorphine, and Vivitrol, is offered for individuals struggling with opiate addiction. The prescriptions are supplemented by individual and group counseling, nursing services, case management services, and ongoing appointments with physicians.

The extended-care residential program for women caters to the unique needs of pregnant women and their young children, and there’s also a specialized residential program for women of color. Both programs provide ongoing treatment and education on chemical dependency while supplying a comfortable, home-like setting. The programs address issues common among women struggling with substance abuse disorders, such as abuse, trauma, self-esteem, and abandonment. The programs also prioritize reuniting families, by offering parenting education, childcare, and family counseling.

Maryhaven’s outpatient programs may last between 12 week and six months. The facility provides a number of specialized outpatient programs, including a dual diagnosis program and a gambling addiction intervention program.

  • Persistent, patient, and attentive. The loved one who attended the facility said the people who worked there were very attentive. However, the typical methods of practice were a downfall; there was no switching things up.
    • Treatment Effectiveness
    I loved the facility. All the nurses were nice. I loved my counselor. Nobody judged you there. I like that they offered suboxone in treatment and they took insurance. However, it was far from my home.
