Substance Abuse Program

Substance abuse is a challenge unlike any other. But recovery is possible, and the Diley Ridge Medical Center Substance Abuse Program (SAP) is here to help.

Our expert team has the experience and understanding to help you recover and make a new life filled with hope. And while treatment and recovery are unique to each person, together we can help you identify valuable resources, connect with community partners, and create a plan to achieve long-term sobriety.

Positive Approach

Our care team is made up of dedicated people who will work with you and your family to ensure you have a pleasant stay and a smooth transition toward your next steps.

Admission Process*

SAP is voluntary and the admission process is planned. It starts with a pre-screening phone call with a Diley Ridge Substance Abuse Program Coordinator.

During the call, you’ll discuss your plans, goals and objectives for recovery and how you’ll transition to your next step. We’ll also talk about insurance coverage and payment options.

To begin the pre-screening process, please call 614-838-7827. We’ll discuss a start date shortly after your pre-screening call.

Types of Care

The Substance Abuse Program offers care for adults (age 18 and older) looking to break the chain to addictive chemicals, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines, such as Ativan or Xanax
  • Opiates, such as heroin, Percocet, OxyContin or Fentanyl

At the time of your scheduled admission, you will need to demonstrate the need to be admitted to an inpatient program. This means that you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms that are sufficiently severe to require primary medical and nursing care services and medical management.

Since it is not safe for expectant mothers to undergo the withdrawal process, we recommend that if you’re pregnant you work with your OB/GYN and community providers to explore safe alternatives for treating your substance use disorder.

Withdrawal Symptoms May Include:

  • Muscle aches
  • Sweating
  • Tremors
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Increased pulse rate
  • Seizures
  • Nausea
  • Dry heaves
  • Gooseflesh skin
  • Anxiety
  • Chills
  • Vomiting
  • Agitation
  • Head fullness
  • Dilated pupils

Medication that may be used during the withdrawal management process can include, but are not limited to:

  • Bentyl
