Addiction Treatment & Mental Hospital Services in Ohio

Health isn’t just physical. Mental health is crucial for overall well-being. More than 42 million Americans suffer from some type of mental illness, and more than 19 million have a substance abuse problem.

Whether it’s depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol abuse, or some other issue, Firelands Regional Medical Center’s Counseling & Recovery Services provides a full spectrum of mental health and substance abuse treatment in Ohio. Our Behavioral Health program is the largest hospital-based program of its kind in the state, and our 34-bed inpatient psychiatric unit and counseling and recovery services provide care to individuals in seven Ohio counties: Erie, Huron, Lorain, Ottawa, Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot.

Firelands provides behavioral health services to northern Ohioans with these conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse

When you turn to us for help, a licensed professional will guide you or your loved one through a complete assessment to help identify the most challenging problems and then work with you to create an individualized mental health, drug or alcohol treatment plan to work through those problems. Based on that plan, you or your loved one may benefit from either inpatient services or outpatient services.
