Though Maryland is a smaller state, there are so many options for addiction treatment. The state has nearly 400 treatment facilities, each with its own specializations and philosophies. You can find a rehab to suit whatever you or your loved one might need.
There’s no need to look for facilities specific to alcohol and drugs, because most will treat addiction to any mind- or mood-altering substance. You’ll want a facility that can focus on the underlying causes of your or your loved one’s addiction. For many people, metal illness accompanies substance abuse, so there are dual diagnosis rehabs that will provide treatment for both conditions.
For people seeking treatment who want to still maintain their job and daily life, there‘s a huge selection outpatient rehabs in Maryland. However, greater success rates in long-term sobriety are seen in people who attend an inpatient or residential treatment facility. Residential treatment is a safe environment, separate from potential relapse triggers. If you or your loved one is struggling with opioid abuse, inpatient treatment may be important for sustained recovery.
You’ll have to check with each facility about which payment options and insurance plans are accepted. If you can’t afford treatment, about 35% of Maryland rehabs will offer treatment at no charge if you meet certain conditions.
Many will also offer intervention services, if you have a loved one who is resistant to the idea of treatment. For people dependent on opioids in Maryland, methadone is the most popular medication-assisted-treatment approach.
Aftercare is just as important to long-term sobriety as treatment. The Maryland State Association of Recovery Residences (M-SARR) is the authority on sober housing in the state. Qualified facilities are members of the organization and meet specific standards required for effective transitional housing
