We are in a nationwide opioid crisis and Ohio has been hit especially hard. Opioids (prescription pain relievers, synthetic fentanyl) are highly addictive drugs even when taken as prescribed by a physician. The emergence of illegal fentanyl and more powerful drugs like carfentanil are alarmingly stronger than heroin or the prescription fentanyl and are also extremely dangerous and addictive. In 2016, drug overdoses in Ohio killed 4,050 people, a 32.8% increase from 2015. If Ohio follows its current pattern of overdose deaths, experts fear 2017 will bring overdose deaths in Ohio to 10,000.

New Path will help you detox and manage your withdrawal symptoms in a safe, comfortable environment while addressing the root cause of your addiction.
