Inpatient Program When clinically indicated, individuals are admitted to Pathways for Inpatient Services. The Inpatient Program is a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week chemical dependency program for adolescents (ages 13-18) and adults (age 18 and older). Length of stay is based on the individual’s clinical need. The major components of treatment for both adults and adolescents are:
24-hour Medical/Nursing Care
Addiction and Recovery Education
12-step Group Meetings
Adventure Therapy: This is an experiential group therapy that utilizes physical initiatives (tasks) to allow exploration of issues, such as trust, problem solving, self-confidence, interpersonal skills and decision making. A specially trained and certified Adventure Therapist leads all groups. The goals of this program are to increase self awareness and behavioral change crucial to the recovery process.
Additional components of treatment for adolescents are:
Pathways School Program: a highly structured educational environment that is designed to meet the individual needs of each student. Pathways’ intent is to allow the student to fulfill, with minimal interruption, basic school requirements during treatment at Pathways, whether or not the individual is enrolled in school. Fully licensed professionals provide instruction based on the student’s home school curriculum. The Educational Team Leader for this program is a Masters-level Maryland certified special education teacher.
Age appropriate social and leisure skills
Partial Hospitalization Program is offered to patients who are medically stable and can be treated at a lower level of care than Inpatient. Program hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, which allows patients the opportunity to live at home with their family and/or significant others. The program phases and components are similar to the Inpatient Program. The Program also has a boarder component that allows patients to stay overnight at Pathways for a minimal fee.
