Maryland Addiction Recovery Center, or MARC, offers a holistic approach to detoxification and rehabilitation. Patients can undergo medication-assisted treatment during the initial detox period and continue with counseling in an inpatient setting. The residential program provides a fully immersive experience without the temptations and stresses of daily life. Most patients stay inpatient for 30-90 days. For those who cannot afford to miss that much time from work or are financially unable to cover inpatient program costs, an intensive outpatient program is an alternative option. Patients enrolled in the program gain access to unique supports such as the College Success program.

What patients are saying:

Reviewers call MARC, “a real stand out,” when it comes to patient care. A mother seeking treatment for her son found the staff to be an invaluable resource, even after he had left the program, saying, “They gave their time to help find several suggestions as time went on…When Maryland Addiction Recovery Center claims they will help find the best fit for you or your loved one, whether it’s with them or not, THEY MEAN IT!”

hopehousemd.org

At Hope House Treatment Centers, patients can start the process of addiction recovery in a serene, suburban environment away from their day-to-day responsibilities. Detoxification is often the first step and is usually an inpatient process that can last from 3-10 days. After detox, program participants often transition to a short-term residency at the facility to continue the recovery process through medical stabilization, both individual and group cognitive behavioral therapy, introduction to a 12-step program and support group, and counseling for relapse prevention. As patients display a readiness to go back to work or school, they can transition into the intensive outpatient program with evening meetings. Typically, inpatient rehabilitation lasts about 30 days, though every patient is different and may require more or less time.

What patients are saying:

The decision to enter rehab is tough, but alumni from Hope House Treatment Centers often give 5-star reviews like this one, “I was at the lowest point of my life in January of 2010. I was dying an alcoholic death. I called the Hope House on 1/14/10 and surrendered. 1/15/10, my first day in treatment there, is the day my life actually began.” Former patients mention the “safe environment” and “caring staff.”

    How much does drug rehab cost?

    Pricing depends on the program, services, and amenities offered. Typically, outpatient programs are cheaper than inpatient, and live-in inpatient facilities are the most expensive. To learn more, read our guide on The Cost of Rehab.

    Rehab is made up of four basic steps:

    • Assessment
