A healthier you begins with a solid foundation.

Let us help you build that foundation and feel at home within yourself.


Therapy

Therapy is the core of our service. This type of treatment, also known as counseling, psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a collaborative process between you and your clinician that results in positive behavior change and overall quality of life.

How Does It Help?

Therapy can help you confront barriers interfering with your emotional and mental well-being, and increase positive feelings such as compassion, self-esteem, and peace. The therapeutic journey is your own, leading you to be more self-aware so that you can continue to grow and find self-actualization.

How do I start?

We’ll connect you with therapists who have Master’s level training, follow evidence-based treatment approaches, and have years of experience. Our psychotherapy providers include professional counselors, psychologists, and social workers.


Medication Management

Medication can and does help many people on their path to wellness. Medication can be a temporary tool to give your mind time to adjust to traditional talk therapy, or a tool you utilize indefinitely every day to live a happier, healthier life.

How do i Start?

It’s important to remember that getting help for your mental health can be a long process. You and your doctor are discovering which sort of therapy resonates with you and which medication is right for you. If you’re taking medication, you may need to try several different ones before you find what works best for you and your mind. Be kind to yourself as you take the time it takes to get there.

What if I’m Receiving Medication and I Don’t Think It’s Helping?

If there is little or no change to your symptoms after six weeks, your medication provider will work with you to prescribe a new medication or combination of medications. Some people respond better to one medication than another, so it can be a process to figure out what works best for you. You may not always start off with the exact right rolls, but as you learn what you want to build for yourself, the tools you need for that will become clearer.


Resource Connect Substance Use Treatment

Our Substance Use Treatment program offers individual, family, and group therapy services for all patients in treatment. Our accredited program has Master’s level clinicians trained to address substance use disorders and possible underlying mental health conditions.

Intensive outpatient Program

In our intensive outpatient (IOP) program, participants attend meetings three to five times per week for three hours each day, either in the morning or evening. The IOP program is an opportunity to build a comprehensive relapse prevention plan by developing coping skills, identifying warning signs for relapse, building a support network, and more.

Participants meet with an individual case manager weekly to develop a treatment plan, work towards treatment plan goals, and connect participants with other outside resources like individual therapy or psychiatry.

Outpatient Program

After completion of the Intensive Outpatient (IOP) program, patients are recommended and encouraged to continue in the outpatient program. The goal of the adult outpatient program is to help patients sustain and strengthen their recovery.

These are 90-minutes long with a frequency of one to two times per week, and are offered in the morning and evening to accommodate all schedules.

Patients must have approximately two-three months of continuous sobriety to qualify for the outpatient group.

DUI/DWI & early intervention

Resource Connect’s Early Intervention and DWI/DUI education program is specifically for patients with little or no previous chemical dependency education. More generally, it’s designed for those who wish to learn more about substance use disorders. Our program is state-approved for DWI/DUI education for those charged with DWI/DUI and/or possession.

The program includes a 12-hour or 26-hour class option. The right class for a patient depends on clinical recommendations from the evaluation at intake. The classes are held every Tuesday evening from 6-7pm (60-minute sessions).


DBT Therapy

The term “dialectic” means two true, yet opposing ideas. A DBT therapist will help with the examination of and discussion of those opposing ideas, helping you accept uncomfortable thoughts, behaviors, and feelings as valid, while still recognizing those thoughts must change in order to live a better life.

What Is DBT?

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) combines methods from cognitive therapy (connecting thoughts, behaviors, and feelings), behavioral therapy (learned behaviors and how the environment impacts those behaviors), and aspects of mindfulness practices.

DBT services are covered by most major insurances, including Carefirst BlueCross/BlueShield, Cigna, and Aetna. At this time, we are not able to accept Carefirst Administrator plans (MTX, GTA, JEY, etc.) or Maryland Medicaid for DBT services. A reduced self-pay rate of $60 is available for those with Medicaid.
