Comprehensive and lasting addiction treatment in Washington, D.C.

Addiction is a chronic disease, supported by genetic, neurobiological, psychological and social factors. It is best treated through a combination of medication, group therapy, community recovery support and family programming. Patients who are physically healthy, educated on the disease and socially supported are better equipped to maintain their sobriety. These ongoing tenets make up the cornerstones of our addiction treatment.

There is no need to wait for a bed to begin treatment at Kolmac. We believe it is important for individuals to start their treatment as soon as possible. Our patients can begin addiction treatment in Washington, D.C., within 24 hours of their first phone call to us.

The history behind Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers

Our founder, George Kolodner MD began his clinical work during his military service at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. The odds of overcoming addiction were slim to none, according to the commonly held belief at the time. However, Dr. Kolodner witnessed rehabilitation in people who received exceptional care during their hospital stay. He became convinced that if he could create an outpatient model that maintained the same level of intensity and structure that worked at the Naval Hospital, he would be able to make an impact in the world of addiction treatment.

In 1973, Dr. Kolodner created Kolmac, which offers a treatment model with many benefits.

  • Achieves the same level of success as residential facilities
  • Allows patients to keep working and living at home during treatment
  • Has helped countless men, women and families for decades

Since Dr. Kolodner created Kolmac Outpatient Recovery Centers in 1973, we have been able to help more than 30,000 men and women live full lives without the use of addictive substances.

The community of medical staff, therapists, current patients and patient advocates at Kolmac know how gratifying, healthy and free life can be after recovery. If you are ready to begin addiction treatment in Washington, D.C., contact us. Our team is looking forward to helping you.
