Clinical and empathetic addiction treatment in Gaithersburg

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.

Through our outpatient services, 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 outpatient addiction 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.
