Columbus Detox Center Under Scrutiny

A popular addiction detox center, which has treated dozens of people from the Scioto Valley, is being investigated by state and federal officials, concerning their operation.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Braking Point Recovery Centers in Whitehall and Youngstown have lost their ability to bill for services when the Ohio Department of Medicaid suspended the company last week because of “a credible allegation of fraud” related to a doctor’s qualifications to prescribe the opioid-treatment medication Suboxone.

State officials enlisted local recovery boards to help patients maintain “access to vital treatment and recovery support services,” he said, whether they were receiving detox care, intensive outpatient services or were in a Braking Point residential-living program.
