Clinical and empathetic addiction treatment
Clinicians at Kolmac treat addiction as a chronic disease, addressing its biological, psychological, behavioral and social aspects. Our addiction treatment program consists of medical intervention, counseling, support groups and family programming. Patients are locally supported by Kolmac medical staff, fellow group members and patient advocates – former Kolmac patients who have been sober for five years or more. In order to receive high-quality detoxification and relapse prevention services, our patients visit us at a nearby clinic at least three times a week.
Kolmac makes it possible to begin treatment in Gaithersburg within 24 hours. Through our outpatient care, there is no need to wait for a bed in a residential facility or leave your family for a month or more. Outpatient recovery through Kolmac is also more affordable than residential, and we work with most major insurance companies.
Creating the intensive outpatient treatment model
Our founder, George Kolodner MD, began his clinical work at the U.S. Navy Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. At the time, the prognosis was poor for patients suffering from addiction. However, Dr. Kolodner witnessed recoveries in active-duty men that surprised and inspired him.
He left the Navy in 1973 and went on to create the first intensive outpatient (IOP) program in the country with the hope of providing high-level addiction treatment with no wait list for admission. He created Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers and founded a program that offers unique benefits.
- Can begin at the time of crisis, maintains daily life and is financially reasonable
- Uses a highly effective relapse prevention technique
- Has helped tens of thousands of men and women
