A new addiction treatment option opens in Canton this week.

The withdrawal management center will be run by addiction treatment provider CommQuest at Aultman Hospital and located in the hospital’s former inpatient psychiatric unit. The 20 bed facility will offer residential treatment and 24/7 detox services.

The new space allows for more treatment options, CommQuest Marketing Director Trista Todd said.

Trista Todd explains case by case treatment options

"They'll do an assessment and determine whether or not they might need actual detox services or maybe just need outpatient or residential services and then if they do need detox services, we'll take them right up to the unit," she said.

CommQuest expects to treat more than 750 patients a year in the new unit, which replaces CommQuest's original treatment center in Massillon. That facility will now offer housing and adolescent treatment services.
