Agency Overview

Alternative Paths, Inc. is a private, non-profit agency established in 1989 in Medina County to provide an array of outpatient behavioral healthcare services. As our mission states, Alternative Paths, Inc. is dedicated to providing an array of quality behavioral healthcare services designed to meet the needs of residents of Medina County and surrounding areas.
 
When the agency opened in 1989, the core services focused on a primary client population with severe mental health diagnoses such as depression, bi-polar disorder, and schizophrenia. Alternative Paths, within all programs, helps consumers gain the highest level of functioning and independence possible given their own individual presentation of symptoms and life circumstances. We recognize that for many of our clients, their mental illness has a life long impact, but we support and work within the recovery model promoting resiliency and attainment of personal goals. We believe that recovery is a personal process that involves overcoming the negative impact of a psychiatric disability despite its continued presence. Our team of clinicians works with mental health consumers to rebuild meaningful lives while receiving services that enable them to recover and decrease their dependence on the system. Alternative Paths treats clients through a multidisciplinary clinical team which includes psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, clinical social workers, clinical counselors, case managers, and chemical dependency clinicians. 
 
Alternative Paths is certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF-accredited service providers are recognized among facilities, and programs for superior standards of care and excellence in outcomes.  Alternative Paths is a Medina County ADAMH Board Funded Agency.  Certifying Agencies:
