Maryhaven provides integrated behavioral healthcare services, with a specialization in addiction recovery care, to help men, women, and adolescents restore their lives from addictive and mental illness. Maryhaven helps men, women, and children to restore their lives when those lives have been interrupted by addictive or mental illness. Our philosophy at Maryhaven is to incorporate a holistic approach to personal health and wellness that focuses on each patient's individual physical and mental health needs to live a healthy and productive life.

Facility Highlights

  • Individual Counseling
  • Group Counseling
  • Lifeskills Development


  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

    Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

Rehabs 360 Guide


One of six Ohio locations, Maryhaven provides a variety of treatment services to individuals struggling with addiction or mental health disorders. The facility's main location in Columbus offers outpatient programs for both adults and adolescents (ages 13 to 18), along with medication-assisted treatment (MAT). It's one of just 23 facilities in Ohio (1.8 percent) to offer an opioid treatment program. Acute detox services are available at Maryhaven's Addiction Stabilization Center in downtown Columbus.


Upon admission, clients participate in a comprehensive assessment to determine the appropriate level of care. Outpatient programs utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and can last anywhere from 12 weeks to six months. They include group therapy, relapse prevention training, and skill-building workshops, along with family counseling.

In addition to a group just for women (which is offered in less than half (43 percent) of all Ohio treatment facilities), there's a gambling intervention program and a specialized program for clients with co-occurring disorders, which may include medication management.


Staff include physician addiction specialists and nurse practitioners, as well as adult and adolescent psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers.
