Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment Hyattsville, MD

An Overview of Substance Abuse Treatment for Hyattsville

If you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, there are treatment options available. This doesn’t always mean out-of-state treatment, either. There are treatment options in the Maryland and Washington D.C. areas that work with patients on an outpatient basis, including the Freedom Center.

Outpatient rehab doesn’t require patients to sleep in a treatment facility overnight. Instead, participants in an outpatient rehab program will typically continue their daily lives as usual. They can keep up with school or professional commitments, as well as family commitments. Treatment can be scheduled around their other obligations, and with outpatient rehab, there is a significant level of flexibility.

What to Anticipate While Going Through Drug & Alcohol Treatment


A lot of people are unsure as to what they can expect if they participate in an outpatient rehab program.

Drug Rehab Facility

During an outpatient drug rehab program, participants first receive an intake assessment. This is a time where their treatment team can learn more about their drug use. Important factors that will help determine the individual’s treatment plan include how long they’ve been using drugs, the types of drugs they use, and whether they have addictions to multiple substances.

Alcohol Rehab Program

Alcohol addiction is something that affects many people, often without their loved ones even realizing it. Outpatient rehab can be a good fit for someone who struggles with alcohol addiction, especially if they don’t require a medical detox or if they’ve already gone through medical detox.

Types of  Drug Treatment Programs

Rehab is a very broad term covering a lot of different types of substance abuse treatment programs.

Day Treatment

Day treatment is a term that can be used interchangeably with partial hospitalization. Day treatment is very intensive and doesn’t offer a lot of flexibility. Treatment takes up most of the day, and the schedule is highly structured. In these ways, day treatment is much more like inpatient rehab as opposed to outpatient rehab. However, when treatment ends each day, patients can go home or if necessary to a sober living house.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)


Intensive outpatient programs or IOPs are one of the more common types of outpatient rehab, and that’s a big part of what we offer at the Freedom Center. An intensive outpatient program provides the opportunity for in-depth treatment, and innovative treatment approaches but is still flexible and allows participants to keep up with commitments they have in their daily life.

Intensive outpatient programs usually have a combination of group and individual therapy, and they are especially beneficial for people who have either already gone through inpatient rehab, or who have a good, strong home support system. Intensive outpatient programs usually require a person to receive services for anywhere from 9 to 19 hours per week.

Continuing Care

There are a lot of different types of continuing care. One option for continuing care is participation in a 12-step program. At the Freedom Center, we prepare participants to take part in a program like NA or AA through our 12-step immersion program.

Continuing care can also include a wide variety of aftercare support from the treatment center you attend. For example, participation in alumni activities, weekly group sessions, and follow-up calls, and accountability check-ins can all be ongoing components of an outpatient rehab program.
