If you have root access, you should be able to modify your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file to change the port back to 22. Then restart SSH ("/etc/init.d/sshd restart" or "service ssh restart" on some distributions.)

You can also change the default port used by the standard ssh client by editing the "Port 22" line in /etc/ssh/ssh_config (your config file location may differ).
