Wells House - 124 E. Baltimore Street Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

What does Wells House - 124 E. Baltimore Street offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Adult Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers patients in this level of care four 3– hour sessions per week and upon completion of treatment plan goals, the ability to transition to three sessions per week until all treatment goals have been met. In addition to random breathalyzer and urine drug screenings, patients are required to attend community support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous and obtain a sponsor for additional support.

Outpatient (OP)

Traditional Outpatient Group (OP) is three sessions weekly. Adults referred to this program have experienced some, but few negative consequences from their use or have had a brief relapse. This program also supports those who have completed IOP and are transitioning into a less intensive program. The focus during this program includes education, self-diagnosis, defense mechanisms, development of a sober support network (AA/NA) and relapse prevention.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements. Inpatient treatment is for male only age 18 or more.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Wells House acknowledges’ that each person’s needs are unique and require an individualized treatment plan based on specific history, issues and needs. A client’s treatment plan is tailored to his/her individual needs. The personalized treatment plan, specific to each individual’s physical, psychological and spiritual needs, also includes clinical care for co-occurring mental health conditions.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

The Wells House has long understood that dependency affects not only the patient but their family as well. To help with the healing process, the Wells House provides family services, where patients and family members receive education, guidance, and support for lifelong recovery. Family services are available to current patients at their request.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.
