Welcome to Potomac Pathways...

It might be hard to believe, but most young people that take part in our treatment programs actually enjoy the experience! Here's what they tell us they like most about Potomac Pathways: the warm, welcoming, and non-institutional atmosphere; the experiential elements of the program like drumming, meditation and outdoor adventure activities; the supportive staff, and a positive peer culture of youth who are serious about recovery.

How do we do it? It's simple; we've integrated many important program elements that keep teens and young adults engaged, interested, and invested. And the research all points to this rather obvious conclusion: keeping young people invested in treatment longer results in better outcomes. In fact, practically everything we do in our programs (including serving snacks!) is based on current research in the field of mental health and addictions treatment that has been demonstrated to improve successful outcomes for adolescents and young adults. Our staff members are licensed counselors who have years of experience working with young people in treatment and-- Potomac Pathways has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for behavioral healthcare. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

So, feel free to browse through the information on the website, and take a look at the services we offer. From our intensive outpatient programs for adolescents and young adults to our unique day treatment program-- you'll find smart, sophisticated services that allow young people to keep moving forward. Welcome to Potomac Pathways—we're here to help!
