Portage Path Maintaining Intake Evaluation Services

by | Mar 5, 2020 | Uncategorized

Due to changes in the Summit County Adult Mental Health System, the Adult Admission Unit, which had been the front door to Mental Health services for adults, has been disbanded. Effective March 2nd, 2020, Portage Path Behavioral Health and Community Support Services will be conducting their own intake evaluations and directly admitting individuals to their respective agencies. 

Even though admissions are now separate, Portage Path continues to have a fully staffed admissions team and will continue to offer the same quality care and services as before, including:

  • Psychiatry & Medication Management

  • Individual & Group Therapy

  • Dual Diagnosis Program

  • Medication-Assisted Treatment

  • Mental Health Day Treatment

  • Case Management

  • On-Site Pharmacy & Primary Care Clinic

  • Psychiatric Emergency Services

To contact the intake department, please call 330-253-3100. 

Portage Path Outpatient Intakes take place at 340 S. Broadway Street, Akron, OH 44308.

Psychiatric Emergency Services is located at 10 Penfield Avenue, Akron, OH 44310.

Our free, 24/7 confidential Support Hotline can be reached at 330.434.9144.

Portage Path Behavioral Health guides people on the path to recovery from mental illness and related substance use issues, empowering them to rebuild their lives and restore their hope. Because our vision is to provide access to quality behavioral healthcare for all, no one is turned away for lack of insurance or other ability to pay. For more information about Portage Path’s services, or to learn more about what to expect during an intake appointment, please visit our new website at www.PortagePath.org.
