Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is a chronic, treatable disease in which a person loses their ability to control their need for alcohol or other drugs. At Zepf Center we strive to provide a client centered treatment program designed to address their goals and needs

Listed below are some of the Substance Abuse Services Zepf Center provides. Please contact us at 419-841-7701 should you have any questions or wish to schedule an appointment.


RESIDENTIAL SUB-ACUTE DETOXIFICATION (detox)

Residential Sub-acute Detoxification provides client centered, gender specific treatment in a safe, comfortable environment for individuals to safely detox from alcohol and opioids in order to begin the recovery process.  Clients may participate in individual, group and activities-based therapy. The goal is to reduce or alleviate symptoms throughout the withdrawal process and provide linkage to appropriate recovery services.
