Whether you’re in Harford County or St. Mary’s County, if you’re a resident of Maryland looking for substance use disorder treatment, you want to know you’re getting the best local care possible.

Finding an inpatient or outpatient rehab facility is tricky. While you can find guides online offering broad tips about what to look for, it’s hard to know how your local treatment matches up. Check out the following overview of Pyramid Healthcare’s inpatient rehab and outpatient substance abuse treatment programs.

Once you read about the top-of-the-line services that Pyramid Healthcare has available, you’ll know you’re in the best hands Maryland has to offer.

What to look for: Inpatient treatment in Maryland

Making the decision to pursue treatment is a noble step. The next phase, deciding where to turn, isn’t as straightforward. When you’re considering treatment options, like Charlotte Hall in St. Mary’s County, look for the following amenities and services.

24/7 admission

While all inpatient treatment runs around the clock, admissions staff may only work standard 9-to-5 office hours. If you’re in the midst of drug withdrawal and are desperate to stay sober, this can be a barrier to recovery.

In your search for an inpatient rehab facility, see what programs offer 24/7 admission, so you don’t have to waste precious moments waiting to start treatment.


Another common barrier to a feasible treatment option is transportation. Individuals from Maryland may be coming from opposite sides of the state, and if you don’t own a vehicle, use public transportation, have unreliable transportation or share a vehicle, you may be facing a serious roadblock to recovery.

Look for an inpatient rehab facility that offers a shuttle service, like California’s Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center, so you have one less worry on your mind.

Mental health support

There has been a big shift in the substance use disorder treatment community towards simultaneous mental health care, but some facilities may still operate under an old framework. When you’re working to get healthy from a holistic lens, it’s important to treat any co-occurring disorders. Especially if they are contributing to your addiction.

Treatment for those who are uninsured

The nature of residential treatment is costly. Because patients stay in the treatment center around the clock, the price of rehab can deter those without insurance from receiving much-needed care.

If you’re looking to go to rehab without insurance (or you’re not sure to what extent your insurance will cover rehab) you’ll want to be sure you find a treatment center that will offer treatment to those who don’t have insurance. 

Some facilities will even work with individuals looking for rehab without insurance by offering a sliding scale based on what individuals can pay. 

What to look for: Outpatient treatment in Maryland

When you’re working towards sobriety and you’re looking for outpatient treatment in Maryland, there will be some key services you’ll want to make sure are included in your rehab program. Here’s what to look for.

Evidence-based treatment

No less important in outpatient than inpatient is an evidence-based treatment. Evidence-based treatment means all the professionals within a facility counsel, teach and practice using their own experience and the most up-to-date science in the field of addiction recovery. 


An inpatient rehab facility that is close enough to commute to every day is likely one of the top things on a person’s checklist when looking for substance use treatment. Regardless of how badly you want to commit to treatment, transportation is one of the logistical things that have to line up in your recovery.

Look for a facility that offers daily transportation. It will make treatment easier to schedule and give you a sense of accountability, too.

Problem gambling treatment

While not all people seeking rehab will be looking specifically for problem gambling treatment, for those who do, finding a top-notch facility that treats gambling addictions can be a challenge. Problem gambling treatment can help you heal addictive and harmful patterns when you feel like your life is off track.

If you’re looking to heal addiction through problem gambling treatment, be sure to check out California’s outpatient rehab facility in Harford County.
