Common Questions

How long does Withdrawal Management (Detox) take?

The Withdrawal Management process usually takes anywhere from 3 to 7 days depending on symptoms.  Meridian staff will continuously assess vital signs and symptoms of withdrawal.  Also, staff will do a complete bio-psychosocial assessment to determine the next step in treatment once a patient has completed Detox.  While a patient is in Detox, they will attend groups and meet with a counselor daily.

Walk-ins are offered Monday-Thursday 8:00am-2:00pm and Fridays 8:00am-12:00pm at Meridian’s Main Office (527 N Meridian Road, Youngstown, OH 44509)

What happens after withdrawal management??

After a patient has completed Withdrawal Management/Detox, depending on the patient’s need, they can continue with services at Meridian. Services can include residential treatment, MAT, Intensive outpatient, etc.  The counselor will meet with each patient, and together they will determine a treatment recommendation.
