Who We Are

Our Mission and Values

The opioid abuse epidemic is very prominent in the United States. KAV Health Group’s goal is to assist in treating this epidemic, one patient at a time. KAV Health Group believes that substance use disorder (SUD) is a chronic medical condition that requires ongoing, individualized, comprehensive, patient-centered care directed at improving health outcomes.

KAV Health Group has a compassionate, skilled, and qualified treatment team of certified counselors and medical providers to treat substance use disorder (SUD) in a non-judgmental, caring, and individualized manner. KAV Health Group’s motto is: “Your success is our success”. This motto attests to the fact that KAV Health Group is truly trying to assist every patient suffering from SUD to not only achieve sobriety from their addiction but to maintain it. This motto also embodies the belief that not only is every patient unique, but that every patient’s recovery is unique. KAV Health Group’s treatment for SUD complies with the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM)guidelines, including phase requirements.

Also, KAV Health Group is also compliant with Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OMHAS) policies as well as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) policies. KAV Health Group is also accredited by The Joint Commission.

What We Do

Our Holistic Approach to Mental Health

It’s our belief that a holistic approach to patient care is the best way to ensure our patients experience total mental wellness. That means looking at the whole patient: not just their physical condition, but their mental and emotional needs as well. Once we take all sides into account, only then can we create a treatment and therapy plan that is truly comprehensive and individualized to their unique needs.

Dual Diagnosis: Mental Health & Addiction

Because mental health issues are so closely intertwined with substance abuse and addiction, we offer dual diagnosis and a variety of different treatment and therapy services to help our patients heal from both. By addressing all underlying issues, and treating mental health and addiction together, we can uproot the causes of both conditions to ensure our patients fully recover and lead an overall happier, healthier, and sober life.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

To combat a complex problem such as a mental health disorder and/or addiction, we take an integrative approach that utilizes both medical and clinical treatment services. Whether our patients need psychiatric prescriptions or intervention medications for addiction such as Suboxone, individual counseling or group therapy, our medication-assisted treatment programs are designed to help you achieve your goals, at your pace.

We Take an Individualized Approach to Treatment

Every patient is as unique as their case: even if two patients have the same mental health issues, what works for one may not work for the other. That’s why we take the time to get to know our patients and review their progress to ensure they’re getting the most effective treatment for their needs.

“I’ve always been sad or stressed a lot, like all the time. And honestly? Doctors could never decide what exactly I was dealing with — and that was stressful on its own! KAV showed me that I have both anxiety and depression, and found the right combination of counseling and medication to help me get my life back.”

– J.C.

“I fidgeted a lot as a kid, couldn’t pay attention and stuff, and it really made things like school and holding down a job hard. I’d heard of ADHD but never looked into it, but in just a few visits, my counselor at KAV Mental Health helped me understand my ADHD and I really got it under control.”


“I’ve always been a worrier. But after the birth of my first child, I started feeling anxiety like never before. A friend of mine told me about KAV Mental Health, and my counselor there helped me explore all this new anxiety. It changes every day with a baby, but I’m in such a better place now, and so much more available for my daughter.”


“After I got hurt on the job and got hooked on opioid painkillers, I went down a dark path. I thank the recovery team at KAV every day for showing me that my story happens a lot, and there’s a way forward from addiction. Finally, finally, I can be the father and husband my family needs.”


“There used to be times I was so depressed, I couldn’t get out of bed, even for food. All I had the energy for was scrolling through my phone or laptop. Having online counseling that I could reach from my phone made it possible for the first time to get real help, even when I was at my worst.”
