FAQ – Addiction Treatment & Recovery Programs

What are your addiction treatment and recovery programs like?

addiction treatment and recoveryOur In-house Community Living program provides 24-hour supervision coupled with state-certified addiction treatment for individuals struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Clients attend individual and group counseling sessions, and participate in daily recovery enrichment sessions, seminars, workshops and 12-step meetings. Our comprehensive services are at the forefront of the new community-based recovery programs sanctioned by SAMHSA. These are historically effective programs for addiction treatment and recovery.

How long is your treatment program?

We have several options available. Our clinical director conducts an assessment to determine the appropriate level of treatment for each individual’s unique needs. We offer a private 28-Day In-House Community Living Program (which can be adjusted for varying lengths of stay), a Weekend Intervention Program (which can also be done mid-week for people with scheduling constraints), and a 12, 26, or 48 week outpatient and aftercare programs which meet weekly in various locations all over the region. Drug and alcohol treatment isn’t a “one size fits all” process. We find the appropriate level of care for every individual.

Are you certified?

Right Turn-IMPACT’s addiction treatment program is state-certified. We are also court-recognized and MVA-approved for those facing legal consequences as a result of substance abuse.

Do you perform medical detox?

While we do not perform a medically-supervised detox in our facility, we work closely with neighboring hospitals that conduct this process. Call for more information: 410-581-4900.

Will I still be able to work during treatment?

Many clients may opt for our work-release program. Please note that we consider the full nature of addiction treatment required to make appropriate arrangements with clients upon completion of our assessments.

Do you consider addiction to be a disease?

In a controversial move in 1956, the American Medical Association (AMA) classified alcoholism as a disease. More recently the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) further defined addiction as a disease after a four-year process. The new definition states: “At its core, addiction isn’t just a social problem or a moral problem or a criminal problem. It’s a brain problem whose behaviors manifest in all these other areas. Many behaviors driven by addiction are real problems and sometimes criminal acts. But the disease is about brains, not drugs. It’s about underlying neurology, not outward actions.”

Drugabuse.gov agrees. They define addiction as “a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences. It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its structure and how it works.”

While we understand that the word “disease” pertaining to addiction treatment is often a topic of debate, we would rather not engage in arguments over terms. Whatever word a person prefers, we believe that a lifestyle of recovery is the best solution known. Until a better solution emerges we will focus on what is working for 23.4 million people in the U.S.

What are the costs for treatment?

We have an established reputation of being the most affordable addiction treatment provider in the area. There are a variety of costs for different programs, varying lengths of stay, etc. So the best way to determine the best cost for you is to call us at 410-581-4900.

Is your program co-ed?

Yes. While both men and women participate in our Community Living facility, there are strict no-fraternization rules in place.

Do you follow the 12-step approach to recovery?

There is more than one way to enjoy a lifestyle of recovery. We embrace the reality that different things work for different individuals. However, at Right Turn-IMPACT, we have found the 12-step recovery approach to be a tested and time-honored approach that works for anyone willing to embrace this lifestyle.
