Specializing In Treatment With Suboxone® Film
About Our Practice
Welcome to Talbot Clinical Services of Ohio. As you come through our doors know that we have cared for, and helped, many people who were struggling with the same issues that you are struggling with right now. We have helped them and are confident we can help you as well.
Our name sake - Matthew Talbot - was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1856. By the time he was 13 years of age, he was, by his own report, an active alcoholic and addict. In his early 30's, he changed his life, embraced sobriety and spent the rest of his life working the docks of Dublin, helping others find and maintain an alcohol and drug free life. He died in 1925. Many consider him a saint.
Inspired by the example of Matthew Talbot, the Sisters of Mercy opened the Talbot Center in 1986. For the next 20 years, the Talbot Center helped those whose lives were ruined by substance abuse and addiction. The Talbot Center eventually became a part of St. Charles Hospital. It closed in 2006.
Soon after the Talbot Center officially closed, another group took up where the Sisters left off. For the past 10 years, Talbot Services has been providing alcohol and drug prevention, education, and intervention services for Northwest Ohio. With the opening of Talbot Clinical Services, we are now taking the next step in our service history by providing outpatient chemical dependency treatment with a special emphasis on opiate addiction.
As always, our mission is to save lives - one life at a time - one day at a time.
Welcome to Talbot Clinical Services of Ohio.

How Suboxone® Works
Suboxone® is used to completely eliminate cravings associated with typical opiate addiction (heroin, pain medication, etc.). Suboxone® is a safer, more effective alternative to Methadone, accomplishing all of the same goals of Methadone without any of the harmful side effects. Suboxone® is an FDA approved medication and is administered in the form of a sublingual (under the tongue) film.
Buprenorphine, which makes up the Suboxone® drug, is a partial-antagonist and has only limited opioid effects. Buprenorphine is similar to full antagonists such as morphine or heroin, which displace existing opioids and prevent others from attaching to chemical receptors in the brain.
