Zepf Center is excited to announce the opening of its new Ambulatory Detox Unit as of July 2017. Serving up to 12-16 people per day, this unit creates an additional level of care and expanded access for those in need of drug addiction services here in Northwest Ohio. This unit will provide care and treatment for individuals who are in need of assistance with withdrawing from their addiction and have an appropriate, safe home environment to go to each night. The Ambulatory Detox program is a 6 day program which operates from 8 am to 4pm daily. Admissions are accepted from the community through Zepf Center’s Intake department located at 2005 Ashland Avenue. This is a medically monitored unit with Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Licensed Counselors and Case Managers. Overnight support is available through a 24 hour a day hotline staffed with licensed providers. Recovery Substance Free Housing may also be available if needed.

As Ohio continues to lead the nation in overdose deaths, this treatment option is one more level of care available for the city of Toledo and the region to combat the effects of addiction on individuals and families. Operating as one of the few certified Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (ODMHAS) ambulatory detoxification units, accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), Zepf Center’s Ashland Avenue treatment facility provides the broadest and most specialized continuum of care for addiction treatment in the region.

Special thanks to the Lucas County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board for its support and initial funding for the development of Zepf Center’s Ambulatory Detox Unit.
