If you are wondering where to start in your search for a treatment program, you have come to the right place. Our caring & certified counselors have years of experience in the field of addiction, and they understand how challenging this process can be. When you call one of our professionals, they can guide through it all and ensure that you find treatment that will be right for you or your loved one.

DC Long-Term Rehab

At DRS, we believe that long-term treatment is the ideal option when someone wishes to fully recover from their addiction – here are a few reasons why:

  • Treatment can last anywhere from one to six months, depending on the individual needs of each client.
  • Because of the length of treatment, various treatment methodologies can be incorporated.
  • With all this time spent at the facility, the person has ample time to look inward, identify and address the root causes for their addiction.
  • Better aftercare support can be provided to the individual, ensuring that they have all the tools needed to maintain their sobriety.

Finding And Starting Drug Rehab

DRS’ Evaluation of the District of Columbia

After reviewing the information and statistics available for drug and alcohol treatment in the District of Columbia, DRS has created the following list of pros and cons:

Pros

  • The District of Columbia has one of the best expanded Medicaid programs in the country, giving the state the lowest uninsured rate in the country amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Most of the substance use treatment facilities in the District of Columbia accept Medicaid for payment.
  • The area is relatively small and densely populated, meaning residents don’t need to travel a long distance to get help.

Cons

  • There are only 26 drug and alcohol treatment options in the District of Columbia.
  • Only six of those programs offer detox services to help patients get off drugs that cause physical dependence. With opioid addiction continuing to surge, this low number limits accessibility to only six facilities for those who need detox.

In our professional opinion, the District of Columbia provides affordable options for addiction treatment to residents. But improvements to accessibility need to be made by providing more treatment options, particularly for detox.

State and Local Resources in Washington DC

Washington DC Department of Behavioral Health

  • The Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) certifies a network of community-based providers to provide substance use disorder (SUD) services, including detoxification and residential and outpatient services based on individual needs.

Washington DC Department of Behavioral Health

  • Prevention Services focuses on deterring the onset of first use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) among youth and reducing substance abuse risk factors for adolescents, families, and communities.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
