Avenues Recovery Center Maryland/DC Review
The DC/Metro program through Avenues Recovery Center offers detox and residential treatment options for adults dealing with addiction and co-occurring disorders. This 60 day program provides both men and women with a comprehensive, individualized and holistic approach to recovery. Programming includes group and individual therapy, Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and 12-step facilitation.
Accommodations and Food
The DC residential facility is a 48 bed, multi story residence that includes a rec room, on-site gym, dining room and kitchen, treatment rooms and laundry facilities. It is located in between Washington, DC and Baltimore. The residential community was recently remodeled to provide all the comforts of home, in a building that feels more like an upscale hotel than a treatment facility. The bright and home like environment makes it easy for clients to focus on their recovery by having everyone under one roof.
Clients enjoy two gourmet catered meals per day in the shared dining room. There are also a variety of healthy snacks out out every day.
Treatment and Staff
The detox portion of treatment is typically a three to seven day process. Medical professionals monitor residents around the clock. Clients can expect medication to help ease them through the stages of withdrawal, and once they are stable, they begin the residential program.
Within the first day clients are assigned to their primary therapist. There are at least three group therapy sessions on a daily basis, and three gender-specific groups per week. There are also two individual sessions each week, along with guided meditation sessions and yoga.
Throughout treatment clients engage in art and music therapy, recreation and fitness, psychoeducational seminars and on-site AA/NA/CA meetings. There is an emphasis on spirituality and connecting to the Higher Power within recovery experience because of the strong 12-step principles the program promotes.
Group topics cover common issues like relapse prevention, anger management, setting boundaries, and how to identify triggers. In addition to therapy, clients also have access to a series of program literature.
It’s worth noting, clients with a dual diagnosis receive medication management services along with their regular weekly treatment schedule.
A medical and clinical director operate the program. A CADC, nurse practitioner, LPC and LCPC round out the team.
In addition to the residential housing, Avenues in DC also provides sober living apartments for clients who want to remain in a supportive community while participating in the outpatient program.
Above all, the DC program offers a new residential facility that is very comfortable, while also providing the entire treatment program in the same building. Clients get to focus on their life skills while learning how to live in recovery. The Avenues programs are well established, caring, and well respected.
