Talbot Addiction Medicine


Talbot HallThe Basics

Talbot Addiction Medicine is a division of Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center, with multiple outpatient recovery tracks for the treatment of substance abuse. Founded in 1974 in Columbus, it has served central Ohio for over 40 years using the latest evidence-based treatment techniques. Offering detox, a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), Talbot is considered a one-stop shop for substance abuse treatment.

Treatment and Staff

Clients begin their recovery journey with an assessment conducted by a staff psychologist to determine an appropriate level of care. Those requiring medical detox are admitted for a three- to five-day supervised detox in a 25-bed hospital setting. Clients are prescribed Suboxone as needed. When they have stabilized, psychoeducation and counseling are offered and an individualized treatment plan is determined with a case manager.

PHP clients commit to five days per week for approximately five hours of treatment per day, including group and individual therapy. This track is designed for clients who have recently completed detox and are in need of structure while they transition back to their home lives. Average length of treatment is six to eight weeks.

After PHP, clients can step down to Talbot’s IOP, during which they are expected to attend three hours of group and individual counseling three days per week. Clients return to work or school while attending IOP. Therapy includes a combination of CBT and 12-step methods and a weekly AA/NA meeting is held on-site in lieu of a group session.

Following completion of the IOP, clients have the option of enrolling in the basic outpatient program, which meets once per week, discusses relapse prevention and assists in transitioning to daily sober life.


Talbot Addiction Medicine provides graduates of their program with free continuing care groups for up to a year. Family group meetings are also available for clients who wish to include loved ones in their treatment plan.

The clinical director of OSU’s addiction medicine program has teamed up with computer science specialists to create an app for heroin addicts in recovery. The app monitors cravings, offers support, provides the phone numbers of trusted members in recovery and allows clients to record stress levels. Milestones are celebrated and testimonials appear randomly to offer words of encouragement.

In Summary

Talbot Addiction Medicine offers a continuum of substance abuse treatment, beginning with detox, then transitioning to PHP followed by IOP and traditional outpatient tracks. The IOP and outpatient programs gradually allow clients more freedom and autonomy to return to work and other life obligations while remaining connected to fellows in recovery. With a full year of free continual care for graduates, Talbot’s thorough evidence-based treatment program keeps clients connected and grounded in the Ohio recovery community.
