Choose Life. Choose Hope.

Akron Treatment Services opened on Monday June 4, 2018 and will treat people in the Akron and Summit County-areas. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) deaths from substance use continue to rise in Ohio, which is attributed to fentanyl and other illicit substances.

However, while the deaths specifically in Summit County are on the decline, the proliferation of lethal substances continues unabated.

Akron Treatment Services provides opioid-use disorder treatment in Akron and area communities and accepts Medicaid. This State has been featured in the international news due to significant deaths from lethal opioids.

The Pinnacle Treatment Center Network utilizes evidenced-based treatment interventions to drive strong clinical results with therapies and medical protocols recognized as the best practices. This places patients on a strong path to long term recovery.

Outpatient treatment enables individuals to receive care immediately with a program that aligns with life’s challenges. Akron Treatment Services offers a convenient schedule for people to fight this disease real time and is opened six days weekly.

The Pinnacle Treatment Center Network also has a residential location in Columbus, Ohio as well as outpatient locations in Dayton, Youngstown, Chillicothe and Cincinnati with Zanesville opening shortly.

“I have worked in the field of addiction treatment for most of my career. Our community has been hit especially hard by the national crisis. We are glad to be able to offer the community a viable treatment option. I am confident that, together, we can positively impact the health of people in this community,” Megan Eaton, Program Director said.

We initially opened a residential treatment center in Columbus, Ohio in 2016. Since that time, through our involvement with key opinion leaders, we have determined the need for more treatment to serve other communities in Ohio. We have quickly gotten clients in all areas opened – demonstrating the need for our treatment, Joe Pritchard, Chief Executive Officer, Pinnacle Treatment Centers, said.

Outpatient Treatment enables individuals to visit facilities on a regular basis and to maintain their work and family schedules. The treatment program generally includes Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) utilizing either Methadone or Suboxone. Future programming will offer Vivitrol as an additional option.  

Individuals receive personal counseling, group therapy, educational classes and are encouraged to attend outside twelve-step meetings. This approach addresses the individual’s medical, physical, spiritual and psychological challenges.

Akron Treatment Services has worked closely with local medical professionals, law enforcement, community and business organizations.

The staff at Akron Treatment Services and I look forward to and are committed to being an active partner alongside all these individuals to enhance the services available to this community,” Eaton said.


Pinnacle Treatment Services treats 10,000 individuals daily across six states. This includes Indiana, Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Pinnacle Treatment Centers Network is a full continuum of care that includes outpatient, residential, intensive outpatient, detox and transitional living programs. Akron Treatment Services opened to serve people in the Akron area and neighboring communities.
