Zepf Center introduces new Ambulatory Detox Unit

. August 15, 2017.

Despite efforts to reduce our opiate problem, Ohio continues to lead the nation in overdose deaths. To help people get off heroin— and then stay off heroin— detox services are needed. To expand access, the Zepf Center introduced an Ambulatory Detox Unit in July, to provide care and treatment in the form of a six-day program, for up to 16 people a day, who need help going through withdrawal. Admissions are accepted at the Zepf Center’s Intake Department (2005 Ashland Ave.) To learn more about available substance abuse services, such as outpatient therapy and recovery housing, call 419-841-7701 or visit zepfcenter.org
