Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Cleveland, Ohio

Situated on the shores of Lake Erie, Cleveland, Ohio—seated within Cuyahoga County—is home to 388,072 residents, with another 3.5 million in the greater Cleveland area (encompassing Akron and Canton). Cleveland’s most-fatal concerns have come from the effects of the Opioid Epidemic.

While there are limited treatment facilities in the immediate area, there are many in surrounding regions that specialize in various forms of addiction and abuse rehab and recovery services.

Ohio’s Opioid Epidemic

Since 2000, drug-related fatalities have increased by almost 800% in Ohio. While prescription painkillers (a form of Opioid) grew in popularity across the country, (80% of the world’s Opioid supply was consumed in the US) Fentanyl and Heroin quickly took over Cleveland. In 2017, Fentanyl was responsible for 492 fatal drug overdoses in Cuyahoga County alone; there were 727 total county overdose deaths. Previously, nationwide prescription drug-monitoring programs had cut down on the number of medications sold on the street. Consequently, many with dependencies turned to cheaper, more available alternatives, like Heroin.

The amount of Cuyahoga County residents who misuse or abuse Opioid prescriptions could fill First Energy Stadium and those that transition to Heroin could fill up Quicken Loans Arena.

- Amanda VanAllen, News 5 Cleveland, 2017

In the latter half of 2017, Ohio’s Substance Abuse Monitoring Network found that 33.7% of the 380 overdose fatalities it had handled in the previous six months involved Heroin. Similarly, 89.8% of those cases also involved Fentanyl.

The number of overdose deaths attributed to Carfentanil specifically (a potent Fentanyl analog, 10,000 times stronger than Morphine) tripled between 2016 and 2017 – climbing from 54 to 191.

Increasingly, Cocaine and Crack Cocaine are being mixed with or co-abused alongside Fentanyl and Carfentanil. Cocaine, a stimulant, and Fentanyl, a central nervous system depressant, produce counteractive effects that, instead of canceling each other out, make the body work harder to stay alive. As Cocaine forces you to breathe harder and use more oxygen, drugs like Fentanyl and Heroin slow breathing and heart rate simultaneously; a potentially deadly combination.

Addiction Treatment in Cleveland

Ohio has worked to create a comprehensive approach to reducing addiction and overdose, including increasing the accessibility of addiction treatment as well as legislative measures. Ohio passed a 911 Good Samaritan Law, giving immunity from arrest to anyone reporting an overdose (with few exceptions, such as for those on parole), and laws securing addiction treatment medication coverage and availability. Opioid treatment medication, like Suboxone, an anti-overdose medication, and Naloxone, are now more easily accessible to residents. Moreover, syringe exchange programs in Cleveland have handled more than 495,000 needles annually and served approximately 4,000 new clients each year.

CenterPoint at the J. Glen Smith Health Center is a major provider of public health services in the area. Approximately 50% of participants are a part of the alcohol abuse program; Cocaine addiction makes up 18%. For those who can pay, a sliding fee scale is applied to any charges.

Additionally, Cleveland offers Access to Recovery (ATR) vouchers to eligible residents of Cuyahoga, Lorain, Mahoning, Stark, and Summit counties. Vouchers can be used to “purchase substance abuse clinical treatment and recovery support services.”

Treatment services include:

  • Intensive outpatient rehab
  • Outpatient rehab
  • Family Counseling
