Detox is when a person who is experiencing symptoms of substance use withdrawal is supervised by a team of medical professionals and recovery coaches. New patients go through a comprehensive assessment and nursing evaluation before visiting with a doctor to determine a course of treatment. Once a plan is established, individuals receive medication monitoring, case management and counseling services to support their recovery.
Recently, the services offered at Crisis Intervention and Recovery Center (CIRC) have transitioned to other community providers. As a result, detox services and 23-hour beds will now be provided by CommQuest, a local counseling and recovery resource. Their detox centers deliver urgent treatment for Stark County residents who struggle with substance use.
A liaison has been established to encourage streamlined information for those receiving or seeking crisis-related services. Anyone who is concerned about the continuity of their care should call the transition liaison, John Miller, at (330) 452-6000.
