We'll Help You Afford It.
We work with most insurance companies
We're Different. This is What You've Been Looking For
Our therapists aren’t like other therapists you’ve worked with. They’re licensed of course, but you’ve had enough of so-called experts who can’t relate. Our therapists are easy to connect with and they’re very good at what they do.
You Belong Here - And You Can Tell
What’s more, we employ people who have struggled themselves. They have been in recovery for a year or longer – and they are doing great! They get it. They are available to help you move forward into a more hopeful future. And let’s not forget the most important thing: the other participants you’ll meet are on a similar journey. They all want to treat themselves better. That attitude is infectious. You belong here. You’ll feel it.
Eve (Afternoon and Evening Schedules)
Day (Morning and Daytime Schedules)
If you need help before or after school (or work), but you need more than a traditional one-hour therapy session, we have options for you. Here is an example of the times our groups are typically offered.
|Group Name||Type of Therapy and Issues Addressed||Minimum Required Attendance|
|DBT IOP||Primarily DBT-focused groups for substance abuse and other addiction issues||3 hours at a time, 3 days per week|
|DBT IOP||Primarily DBT-focused groups for depression/anxiety and other mental emotional health issues||3 hours at a time, 3 days per week|
|SUP IOP||Primarily 7 Challenges-focused groups for substance abuse and other addiction issues||3 hours at a time, 3 days per week|
|Day PHP||Primarily DBT-focused groups for depression/anxiety and other mental and emotional health issues||5 hours at a time, 5 days per week|
Potomac “Home” is our name for appointments that occur in the community rather than in our offices. When you’d prefer to get support at random times of the day or evening, Potomac Home services are usually only 1-2 hours per week.
A "Whole Family" Solution
We also have the same options for your parents but instead of calling them Mentors we call them “Parent Coaches”. Your parents can choose to have “clinical” or “life” assistance. And some of our life coaches can coach your parents over a phone or a tablet or a computer.
Ready When You Are
In addition to weekly scheduled sessions, Potomac Mentors and Coaches are available for you and your parents in real time, at critical moments when you might need support and guidance the most.
Wherever You Are
Many of our Home participants have come to us after completing a wilderness program or residential treatment. They can’t stand the thought of going back to an office for more therapy. Potomac Home is a better alternative. We meet you wherever you are most comfortable.
Earning Our Reputation
This in-the-moment support via phone or text is why Potomac Home has earned its reputation for success with tough, real-world situations.
Optimize Your Support Network
Here’s an example of how your Potomac Home Mentor and Parent Coach work together with your family to optimize the resources you have in your community. Many people are surprised to learn that there are hundreds of solutions for you within the circle of friends and leaders you already know!
Coming Soon: 24/7 Care
24/7 is often referred to as “residential treatment” because you live with us overnight. You eat with us, sleep at our facility, participate in school classes, and have your therapy all under one roof – in other words, in one residence.
You Work on You, We Handle the Rest
Potomac 24/7 is designed to keep you on track in school while you sort yourself out. We get you on the right medications, evaluate your neurobiology, and address family issues. You have individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy. We do what’s called “experiential” therapy in large doses. That means we give you therapy in the guise of experiences: experiences like animal-assisted therapy (think horses and dogs); experiences that build your resume for future jobs; experiences with drama, art and music; experiences involving yoga, construction, and academics; and other intellectual and cultural experiences. This is the opposite of a hospital setting.
