About Portage Path


The name Portage Path has been synonymous with outstanding behavioral health care in the Akron area for more thanĀ 40 years. Since its inception in 1970, Portage Path has grown from a small, regional county provider to a comprehensive agency with three outpatient locations and an emergency services facility open 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week.


Portage Path Behavioral Health is a professional health care company that exists to provide outpatient, inpatient, emergency, and other specialized behavioral health services to individuals and other purchasers in the Northeast Ohio region.

Our services are shaped by the needs of our various clientele, and are accessible, affordable, and of the highest quality.


With a clinical staff that includes psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical counselors, social workers, chemical dependency counselors, clinical nurse specialists and more licensed clinicians than any other agency in the area, Portage Path is second to none, and has the right professional for you. In addition, every member of Portage Path’s counseling staff has at least a master’s degree in a counseling-related field. In the past few years we’ve added some very talented young clinicians, trained in the latest techniques at institutions like the Cleveland Clinic, NEOUCOM, and Case Western Reserve University, and we boast an average clinical staff tenure of eight years.
