We’re a family here at Travco. When you enter our doors, any stigma or shame is left outside. You’ll be embraced as one of our own.

Our MAT therapies for chronic depression (Spravato) and addiction (Suboxone and Vivitrol) will make all the difference in your recovery. Through our affiliate, First Step Recovery, we offer medically licensed, subacute inpatient detox and drug/alcohol addiction treatment that is highly-effective, evidence-based and medically safe.
Travco honors every patient's individual path and is one of the select few mental health centers in Ohio to provide NeuroStar® Advanced Therapy to treat depression. NeuroStar® is a safe and effective non-drug treatment option for depression sufferers by using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
We truly empathize with anyone struggling with substance abuse or a mental health challenge. That’s why we come to work every day and do what we do. Our goal is to help you break through to a brighter life.
I was in a deep hole. Travco managed my medication and gave me coping strategies. After the third Spravato treatment, I felt a huge positive change in my attitude. I continue to be pleased with the results. I feel happy again.
The Travco staff treated me with the utmost respect. They were compassionate to my problems and the problems of the other clients, too.
I was treated as a whole person, not as an illness.
Travco Behavioral Health’s services are tailored to the unique needs of anyone struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, excessive anger, grief, abuse and trauma, among others. Every person responds differently to therapy; that is why we offer many diverse treatment modalities. All of them serve to access the individual’s underlying issue.
Therapeutic interventions include but are not limited to:
Other Services include:
Travco accepts self-referrals as well as patients referred by physicians, community referrals from schools, probation courts and mental health professionals. After a referral is made, a diagnostic assessment is completed to determine whether outpatient treatment is best suited to meet the patient’s needs.
Having our ongoing support means a smoother transition into a substance-free lifestyle. Creating individualized treatment plans targeted to each patient’s unique needs is a key component of successful recovery from substance abuse.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) can be especially helpful when recovering from an opiate or alcohol addiction. In fact, studies show that those with opioid dependence who follow detox with no medication are very likely to return to drug use, according to Nora D. Volkow, MD, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse: “These findings should encourage clinicians to use medication protocols, and these important results come at a time when communities are struggling to link a growing number of patients with the most effective individualized treatment,” she states.
Opioid agonist medications like Suboxone ( buprenorphine and naloxone) have been found to reduce morbidity and mortality, decrease overdose deaths, reduce transmission of infectious disease, increase treatment retention, improve social functioning and reduce criminal activity. Suboxone is the first medication to treat opioid dependency that is permitted to be prescribed by a physician and taken in the comfort of your own home, significantly increasing treatment access. The medications buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) reduce cravings associated with addiction, making it easier to abstain. They actively block the effect of substances on brain receptors, which means that users of opiates and alcohol won’t experience a euphoric high.
Psychotropic medications such as Spravato alter the chemical levels in the brain that impact mood and behavior. Travco is one of the only treatment centers in the state of Ohio that is a certified provider of Spravato, a prescription medicine in the form of a nasal spray, used in conjunction with an oral antidepressant. It is self-administered under the supervision of a healthcare provider. After 16 weeks of therapy, those patients who stayed on Spravato did better than those who stopped therapy. Patients experienced a greater reduction of depression symptoms at four weeks compared to those who received a placebo and oral antidepressant.
All of these medications work best when managed within a structured level of care treatment program. Travco is certified by the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) drug safety program under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This protocol helps us ensure that the benefits of the medications outweigh their potential risks in every client’s case.
NeuroStar® uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to target key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with depression. TMS is not the same as ECT (electroconvulsive therapy).
What is NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS)?
While the exact cause of depression is unknown, the leading scientific theory is that it is caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.
During a NeuroStar treatment session at Travco, a magnet is used to stimulate nerve cells in the area of the brain thought to control mood. The magnet is similar in strength to that used in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. These magnetic pulses may have a positive effect on the brain’s neurotransmitter levels, making long-term remission possible.
NeuroStar® Advanced Therapy is offered at Travco’s Boardman location. Treatment typically takes 19-37 minutes and is administered 5 days a week for approximately 4-6 weeks. NeuroStar is covered by most insurance with the option to self-pay at Travco.
How NeuroStar® TMS Therapy Works
Here’s what you can expect from a NeuroStar Advanced Therapy (TMS) session:
You will first recline in the treatment chair and get in a comfortable position. Then a small, curved magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head.
While you are receiving treatment, NeuroStar will deliver focused magnetic stimulation directly to the target areas of the brain. You are awake during treatment and will hear a clicking sound and feel a tapping sensation on your head. The length of the treatment will be 19 to 37 minutes depending on your doctor’s recommendations.
Immediately after treatment, you can resume your normal activities including driving yourself home. There are also no negative effects on alertness, memory or sleep.
