Outpatient Mental Health


Different individual situations call for different modalities and methods. There aren’t individual therapy techniques that are perfect for everyone, and some are more effective than others with specific individuals. Below are a few of the most common types of individual therapy.

Medication Management

Our team can monitor medications, their side effects, and their possible interactions with other medications.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a relatively short-term therapeutic modality that focuses on the way an individual thinks and behaves in order to improve the way they feel. It has been found to be useful in treating mood disorders, substance use disorders, and sleep disorders.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, is a relatively new form of therapy that focuses on the building of new skills to ease difficulties. Skill modules include mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotional regulation.


Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy is a form of CBT that encourages the practices of mindfulness and meditation. This individual therapy technique helps individuals familiarize themselves with states of mind surrounding difficulties, disorders, and contentment.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a relatively new form of psychotherapy that focuses on building motivation to spark change. It’s been found to be especially effective in working with addiction and substance use disorders.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy is not a solution-oriented therapy like CBT and DBT. Instead, the goal of therapy sessions is to have the client see patterns of thoughts and behaviors more clearly.

Solution-Focused Therapy

Solution-Focused Therapy is a broad form of psychotherapy in which the name says it all. The therapist works individually with a client to help assess how they have solved problems in the past, what exceptions to the problem may be present, and how they can move forward.

Existential Therapy

Existential Therapy aims to offer a holistic approach to therapy sessions. It’s a therapy technique that doesn’t just focus on the past, but seeks to look at the whole of the individual’s experience.

Welcome to Transitional Care Services, your trusted partner in providing excellent behavioral health services in Maryland. Our mission is to provide much-needed assistance to individuals and families who are struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Our team of professionals is dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to ensure that you achieve long-lasting recovery and regain control of your life.

Maryland is one of the states hardest hit by the opioid epidemic in the country. Substance abuse, particularly opioid addiction, has become a serious health concern, with the alarming number of overdose deaths in recent years. According to the Maryland Department of Health, there were 2,282 unintentional drug- and alcohol-related intoxication deaths in the state in 2020 alone. This statistic highlights the urgent need for more effective substance abuse treatment options in the state.

At Transitional Care Services, we understand the gravity of the situation and are here to help. We offer both outpatient and inpatient substance abuse treatment programs in Maryland to meet the unique needs of each individual. However, in this article, we would like to focus on our inpatient substance abuse treatment centers in Maryland, their benefits, and why you should consider this option for yourself or your loved one.

Individual and Group Therapy

Individual and group therapy are the core components of our inpatient substance abuse treatment program. Through these therapy modalities, our clients learn to cope with stressors, recognize triggers, manage cravings, and develop healthy coping mechanisms. We offer evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and other drug counseling approaches.

Additionally, our inpatient substance abuse treatment program provides the perfect environment for individuals to connect with peers who are going through similar experiences. This mutual understanding creates a safe space for individuals to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, providing much-needed support and camaraderie.

Safe and Supportive Environment

One of the most significant benefits of inpatient substance abuse treatment is the safe and supportive environment that it provides. At Transitional Care Services, our inpatient substance abuse treatment program is designed to help individuals who are struggling to overcome addiction in their everyday lives. Our facility is a peaceful, calm, and serene environment that helps clients to focus purely on the recovery process.

Relapse Prevention

Relapse prevention is a critical component of inpatient substance abuse treatment programs. At Transitional Care Services, our inpatient substance abuse treatment program integrates a range of proven techniques to help clients maintain long-term sobriety. One of the most effective strategies is the development of an aftercare plan, which is uniquely designed for each client’s specific needs.

Our aftercare plan encompasses a range of supportive measures, such as outpatient counseling, group therapy sessions, and regular check-ins to prevent relapse. This approach ensures a smooth transition to everyday life while reducing the risk of relapse.
