Depending on your insurance, finances, and the type of program you need, you’re sure to find an alcohol or drug rehab in Baltimore that fits your needs, given the dozens of options available.

Low-Cost and Free Rehabs in Baltimore

If you need assistance in paying for rehab services, look to local nonprofits and religious organizations for help.

How Do I Pay for Addiction Treatment in Baltimore, MD?

When looking for rehab, it’s critical to be aware of the total costs you’ll be responsible for when signing up for any program. There are dozens of programs for people in any financial situation in the Baltimore area. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), there are:1

Once you’ve determined how you’ll pay for addiction treatment, you can begin researching qualified centers in the area.

Choose a Program that Offers Payment Plans

If you can afford a down payment on treatment, an addiction care payment plan might be a good finance option for you. This creates a contract that splits up the cost of care over an extended period, giving you a chance to make more manageable payments during rehab and after finishing treatment.

Rehab centers might require you to submit to a credit check before approval, and if they offer a down payment, the amount will vary greatly depending on each facility’s policies.

Rehab centers might require you to submit to a credit check before approval, and if they offer a down payment, the amount will vary greatly depending on each facility’s policies.

Apply for a Rehab Scholarship: A rehab scholarship can help low-income and uninsured clients with some or all of their rehab costs. These scholarships for rehab are usually reserved for clients who don’t have access to any alternatives. SAMHSA and other federal and state agencies provide block grants to facilitate scholarships for drug or alcohol rehab in Baltimore, and some facilities may have private scholarship funds. The best way to find a rehab scholarship is to call your desired rehab and ask their intake coordinators.

Find a Sliding Scale Rehab Program: Sliding scale rehabs allow clients to pay for care at a cost determined by their annual income and other factors. Sliding-fee-scale programs typically base their qualifications on current federal income poverty guidelines. Community-based rehab centers are among the most likely types of rehabs to offer sliding-fee options.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab in Baltimore, MD

When considering the type of rehab you’ll need, take into account the amount of time each day you have to spend on treatment. Inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab have one key difference: outpatient rehab programs allow you to return home at night, whereas inpatient residential facilities require you to live in the facility and abide by their rules and structure until your treatment is complete.

Benefits of Inpatient Addiction Treatment

Inpatient rehab provides a supportive, stable, and immersive environment away from home where you can focus solely on your recovery. Inpatient rehab will have you participating in daily addiction therapy, either individually or in a group, and you’ll be surrounded by supportive peers who are also working diligently through recovery.

Depending on your needs, your residential stay could be as short as 30 days or 90 days or longer.

Benefits of Outpatient Addiction Treatment

Baltimore is home to 170 outpatient rehab service centers, ranging from outpatient detox and day treatment centers to intensive outpatient programs (IOPs).1 These programs work through extensive individual and group therapy sessions to teach the coping and life skills you need to maintain long-term recovery.

Outpatient treatment options for drug rehab in Baltimore include:1

Standard outpatient treatment requires the least time commitment to participate, usually requiring only a few hours of meetings per week in individual therapy or support groups. This type of rehab is perfect for someone in long-term recovery who just needs ongoing counseling and life skills coaching to avoid relapsing

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are more involved than the standard treatment, requiring a few hours of therapy several days a week.

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) are the most intensive, with several hours in an inpatient setting each day. Many people enter PHPs after finishing inpatient rehab or detox programs.

Outpatient programs can be greatly beneficial if you are dealing with addiction on top of:

Balancing your busy life and treating addiction can be a challenge, but outpatient rehab clinics can help with flexible programming to fit your schedule.

Aftercare is an integral aspect of maintaining sobriety for the long haul. Outpatient recovery maintenance programs provide ongoing counseling and drug education to help you or your loved one maintain sobriety, and community-based support groups, including 12-step programs, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Narcotics Anonymous, can supplement your aftercare plan with extra social support. These programs are offered consistently, at a schedule that fits your life, whether it be daily, weekly, or monthly sessions.

Types of Drug and Alcohol Rehabs in Baltimore, Maryland

Depending on your interests and background, you might find a more supportive environment that caters to your personal beliefs to be more fulfilling than a standard population rehab.

Holistic RehabA holistic rehab center will focus more on natural surroundings and treatments such as nutrition therapy and yoga to aid recovery. There may be experimental therapies such as acupuncture and yoga, along with evidence-based treatments. In a holistic rehab, you may also find a community more in line with your energy that understands the issues that affect your mental health and recovery.

Christian and Faith-Based Rehab If you’re a spiritual person, a religious environment might be helpful in your healing process. Faith-based rehabs incorporate pastoral counseling, group prayer sessions, and other religious activities with other addiction treatments to encourage sobriety.

Luxury Rehab When you’re interested in the most serene rehab environment possible with access to the highest-quality treatments and on-campus offerings, look for a luxury rehab center. These facilities are usually equipped with anything you could want from a luxury hotel, including fine dining and on-site gyms with spas.

Executive Rehab People in high-level professional positions often want to ensure their confidentiality while undergoing rehab to avoid any backlash. Executive rehab centers focus heavily on client confidentiality and offer a myriad of high-end therapies, amenities, places to gather, and office space to work in peace within the facility if needed.


 

Dual Diagnosis Rehab
When you find yourself struggling with both a mental health disorder and substance abuse, you likely have a dual diagnosis. Rehab centers that deal with dual diagnosis are staffed with a higher caliber of mental health care professionals than your standard rehab center to manage medication and therapy for those with mental health conditions.
 
If your life is being impacted by substance use and you also have a diagnosis of a mental health disorder, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or any other number of mental health disorders, a co-occurring diagnosis drug or alcohol rehab in Baltimore is available to help. There are 59 dual diagnosis rehabs in and around the city, including several specifically for homeless people, veterans, and women.1

  • Depression and Addiction
    Many people with depression turn to drugs and alcohol to cope with the symptoms of depression. Some studies indicate that up to 80% of people with depression also experience a substance use disorder, making it the most common dual diagnosis.5

  • Anxiety and AddictionAnxiety can affect a person’s ability to concentrate and sleep and set nerves “on edge.” If you’ve visited a mental health professional for your anxiety and been prescribed medication, then you’re at risk of developing a substance dependency. Studies show that people between the ages of 18 and 25 are most affected by anxiety medication abuse, with 3.8% of people in that category nationwide misusing benzodiazepines.6
     
    Anxiety medications such as benzodiazepines are highly addictive and can compound existing issues as well as create new ones. When used in combination with alcohol and other illicit drugs such as opioids, these medications contribute to the risk of death from overdosing due to their respiratory suppression capabilities.

  • PTSD and Addiction
    Up to half of the people with a substance use disorder have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), with studies showing around 70% of people worldwide experience a traumatic event at least once in their lives. This is much higher in veterans and service members, as well as emergency first responders. When your job is defending the public and your country, experiencing traumatic events can be a daily occurrence.7

  • Bipolar Disorder and Addiction
    A recent study shows that nearly a quarter of the people that enter into substance abuse treatment programs had a dual diagnosis with bipolar disorder present, all presenting higher rates of severe alcohol and cocaine addictions. Regarding participants enrolled in mental health treatment facilities, 61.9% of clients were dual diagnosed with bipolar disorder and substance abuse disorder.8

  • Personality Disorders and Addiction
    Studies show that a high amount of people with addiction disorders also suffer from a personality disorder like borderline (BPD) or antisocial personality disorder, with some studies indicating a prevalence of up to 73%.9

Types of Addiction Therapy Used in Rehab

Addiction is a complex disease that affects a person’s brain and behaviors. It is treatable, but there is no “one size fits all” approach that works for everyone. There are several types of evidence-based therapies that may be provided by your drug and alcohol rehab in Baltimore.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps people recognize, cope with, and/or avoid situations that are most likely to cause temptation to return to drug and alcohol use. This form of therapy analyzes thought and behavior patterns to address addictive behaviors.13

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) is often used to treat people with a dual diagnosis. This form of therapy focuses on validating and accepting uncomfortable feelings rather than burying them or denying these feelings exist. Through DBT, you will learn to cope with difficult feelings healthily instead of using drugs and alcohol as coping mechanisms.14

Motivational Enhancement Therapy

Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) is designed to motivate people to engage with their addiction treatment program. Because it can be challenging to stop using drugs and alcohol, many people feel ambivalent about quitting. This therapeutic approach may help you become internally motivated and get you involved and committed to your recovery process.15

Contingency Management

Contingency management (CM) programs provide tangible rewards, such as vouchers or gift cards, for abstaining from drug and alcohol use. Research shows that CM programs are highly effective at increasing engagement in rehab programs and can truly help people abstain from drug and alcohol use.13

Group Therapy

Group therapy allows you to meet with others in the rehab program for support, discussion, and camaraderie. Group therapy is a central feature in most Tampa rehab programs. It is often combined with individual therapies and is highly effective in helping people both make meaningful connections with peers and achieve long-term recovery.13

Family Therapy

Family therapy brings every member of a family together to address their interactions and improve their communication. If you and your family have been affected by addiction, this type of therapy can be very helpful in teaching you healthy communication strategies. Your family members will be taught healthy ways to help support your recovery. It’s also an opportunity to work through any family issues that may have contributed to substance misuse.13
