Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic
Since 1962, Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic has served more than 30,000 individuals struggling with substance abuse. Formerly known as Vanguard Services Unlimited, we joined forces with Phoenix House in 2010 to become Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic and continue to be one of the foremost treatment centers in the region.
In Maryland, services offered for adults include comprehensive assessments, intensive outpatient programming, case management, and coordination and referrals as needed. Our treatment facilities located in Virginia also serve clients from Maryland, Washington, D.C., Delaware, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.
Our nationally accredited programs provide outstanding residential, transitional, and outpatient treatment with gender-specific programs available for both adults and adolescents. A Spanish-speaking men’s residential program is also available. Our counselors, physicians, and psychiatric staff use a 12-step approach to address a wide range of substance abuse and co-occurring mental health problems, and our treatment regimen includes medication management and medication-assisted treatment as appropriate. Our active assessment center provides comprehensive evaluations of substance abuse, addiction, and related mental health problems in order to identify the most appropriate treatment for each client. Family involvement is encouraged in the treatment process, and treatment length for most programs is determined by individual need. Most major insurance plans and all major credit cards are accepted.
