A Stark County addiction treatment provider is opening a detox center this fall inside Canton's Aultman Hospital. CommQuest is relocating the service it’s been operating in Massillon.

CommQuest President and CEO Keith Hochadel says moving to Aultman will provide access for more people in need. And being in a hospital setting means they can help patients who often seek treatment in the emergency room.

Aultman Hospital in Canton closed the doors of its psychiatric unit this week. It was the last remaining inpatient psychiatric care facility in Stark County.

The decision to close was made because new regulations to psychiatric care would require $2 million in renovations to the unit.

Instead, the hospital decided to focus its care strategy on emergency room treatment for more urgent cases and outpatient care for long-term issues.
