Substance Abuse

We are continually looking for new ways to reduce substance abuse in Darke County and are committed to initiating and sustaining prevention programs to achieve that goal.

Vivitrol (Naltrexone) Program
Naltrexone works by blocking opioids from acting on the brain's opioid receptors. This takes away the ability to get pleasure or a "high" from using opioids (like heroin or pain killers). It reduces powerful desires or "cravings" for opioids. Vivitrol is also used in alcohol use disorder to help reduce heavy drinking. Vivitrol prevents relapse to opioid dependence after detoxification. Vivitrol is a once a month injection that is administered in the office.

Buprenorphine (Suboxone) Program
Buprenorphine acts as an opioid in the brain to reduce the desire to use heroin or pain killers. Buprenorphine can also be used to help a person’s withdrawal symptoms. It reduces powerful desires or "cravings" for opioids (like heroin or pain killers). Buprenorphine is taken in a pill or film form daily and is also available in a monthly injection. The dosage taken is determined by the provider. Family Health is offering Buprenorphine treatment for opioid use disorder treatment during pregnancy, or for patients unable to take Vivitrol.

XChange Clinic
Family Health hosts an XChange Clinic on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month in the Family Health Dental Clinic. The XChange Clinic is designed to help men and women who struggle with illicit drug use, providing one-to-one needle exchange, fentanyl test strips and Narcan. Their goal is to reduce harm to individuals affected by the disease of addiction and to help protect Darke County's residents from accidental needle sticks and blood-borne diseases like hepatitis and HIV.

Celebrate Recovery of Darke County is a Christ centered program that allows for freedom from life's hurts, hang-ups, and habits. Based on the Beatitudes in Matthew 5:3-10, it leads us to experience true peace and serenity that is only found through a relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as to leave behind our old behaviors that have kept us from this serenity. Celebrate Recovery seeks to offer people freedom from anger, broken relationships, past abuse, grief over the loss of a loved one, co-dependency, compulsive behaviors, food addiction / eating disorders, suicidal thoughts, sexual brokenness, substance abuse, etc. The group meets every Friday and begins the evening at 6 p.m. with dinner together (meal is provided), large group at 6:30 pm and small groups starting at 7:30 pm. Celebrate Recovery is a safe place where it is ok to not be ok, we can battle our issues together.
