Home Services

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!
