Adventist Behavioral Health is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 14901 Broschart Road in Rockville, Maryland. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Adventist Behavioral Health. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Adventist Behavioral Health.
If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Adventist Behavioral Health, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged 18+, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.
The staff members at Adventist Behavioral Health have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Adventist Behavioral Health. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.
Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Adventist Behavioral Health can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.
Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact Adventist Behavioral Health by visiting www.AdventistBehavioralHealth.com now.
I couldn't disagree more with some of the negative reviews! I have always been treated very kind by each and every person I encountered. My visits were pleasant. Respectfully, Raymond Jordan
I spent a week in the Montgomery unit earlier in the year. I was so afraid, as this was my first visit to an inpatient hospital. The staff was very loving and friendly. The nurses were caring, the doctors fantastic, I had psychosis my second day there, the staff managed it perfectly. My peers were fun and friendly. When I was being discharged, I cried because I felt like I was leaving friends and family that I may never see again. They only con I had was a social worker named Rachel. She was pompous, rude and screamed at one of my peers and shouted his personal information down the hall for everyone to hear. I feel like her outbursts set people back in progress. She needs to be moved to a job where she doesn’t have to interact with people, or receive better training.
100% recommended! Our 15 year-old son was admitted to the Chesapeake unit for three weeks. My wife and I are very pleased with the experience and are tremendously impressed by the staff. It was amazing to see professionals who actually care about the patient's feelings and needs. We wanted to express our gratitude especially to the Nurse Manager, Mrs. Kara. She was always compassionate and helpful during the whole process. Also a special thanks to the psychiatric technicians Mr. Chris and Ms. Iliana, whom my son describes as very hardworking and caring individuals, and assures will never forget them both. Overall the whole team was absolutely outstanding! The psychiatrist, Social worker and nurses were all kind and professional, too. We couldn't be happier to have taken our son here.
Hannah, it’s me, David. That “Nothing-In-Particular Guy”. The one in the Inpatient ward with you, 4 years ago. The one who had “Intrusive Thoughts”, just like you did. The one who wanted to become a police officer. The one with no particular interests in anything. I know you’ll probably never see this message, but I always wanted to find you again after I left the inpatient ward. It’s already been more than 4 years since then (as of 2018), but the single greatest regret in my life was giving you such poor advice about how to deal with those "Intrusive Thoughts", and not being able to talk with and comfort you more back then. Especially since we were the only two that were suffering from the same problem. Please, if you ever see this message, contact me! Just let me know if you’re doing okay. My email is: (Nothininpart @ gmail . com) I’ll be waiting for your reply, no matter how long it takes! Even if you never read this message, even if it takes an eternity; I’ll still be waiting for your reply. (To those of you that can find it in your hearts to do so, please upvote this comment so that it can remain easily seen. Please know that I truly mean no ill intent; I just, genuinely and sincerely, from the very bottom of my heart, want to hear from this person again. Just to at least know that she’s doing well.)
It's hard to find help in an inpatient psychiatric hospital especially when you're recovering from addiction and PTSD. I wanted to express my gratitude for the staff on Seneca Unit and thank them for their patience and time spent speaking with me. Thank you especially to nurse Rachel and Mrs. Jen (Unit Director). Also mr. Charles .. Thank you for everything these are just the staff that stand out in my mind but the entire team was great. Thank you for not judging me and helping me to get set up with a great out patient program. Recovery is a great feeling and I wouldn't have gotten back on track if I hadn't gone to Seneca Unit. Thank you again.
My 16 yo son was in the Chesapeake Unit for two weeks. My husband and I were impressed by the staff and our son’s progress. It is a very safe place- they have a lot of technicians that keep watch over the teens. The boys’ and girls’ rooms are on opposite sides of the unit. Bedtime is 9:30pm with structured days. So, our son was on a really good schedule that helped him transition back into a school schedule. The MD was so helpful! Dr. Lennon worked with us on picking out meds that would help our son, and that our insurance would cover (and that would be the least expensive). The social worker made sure we had all the follow up appointments upon discharge. She picked providers (a psychologist and a psychiatrist) within our insurance network, and those within close distance to our home. She let us know of all the free resources within the community and she even contacted them for us. It was an unexpected and difficult time, but the staff made our experience so much better. I highly recommend this place for a safe place where your teenager can heal, stabilize on meds, and recover.

I have to say that my family had several reservations about admitting our 15 year old son into an inpatient Psychiatric Unit for the first time. Naturally, we were afraid and unsure of what to expect. Our son was struggling with severe anxiety and had become isolated and suicidal. All of our fears were put to rest when we stepped onto the Chesapeake Unit for adolescents at Adventist Behavioral Health. The nurses and psych techs took the time to explain everything to myself, my husband and my son. They were professional, relatable and put us at ease. We also met with the Nurse Manager at admission and she was very knowledgeable, compassionate and took the time to answer our questions with ease and true compassion for our situation. Our Psychiatrist was wonderful and the therapist working with our son was very invested in working with us and answering our questions. Our son is doing well and we know that we have to continue to support his recovery and felt prepared and supported by the time he was ready for discharge. The healthcare professionals on this unit are top notch and I have never met such a great group of nurses and support staff. We were blessed to have such amazing support when we needed it the most. Thank you for all of your help and dedication!
My son had been admitted to the Potomac unit times 3 recently. During my visit and interactions, I have observed good and caring staff members and off course, few bad ones. Among the good ones, their Social Worker (Miriam Garcia) is excellen and professional. She deserves to be called social worker because she is and I give the place 4 stars because of her.
The people are very pleasant and give you the best advice. Very nice front desk personnel and the staff are very organized. I understand there are different services being offered in this building, so you cannot lump them all into one survey. Each time I have visited; I have found the staff and doctors to be very professional, knowledgeable and that makes an overall awesome place!

Great place. Inpatient is very difficult and scary sometimes but the workers there deal with everything very well. Outpatient setting is very organized. I have experience with the partial hospitalization (PHP) for adolescents and they are very professional and genuinely care about you. Other mental health facilities are inhumane but ABH treats you like a person not a patient
It was not the first time I had been in a place like this, but it was the last. Unlike other places I had been, the staff was friendly and cared. They did not radically change my meds, they did not drug me so I couldn't function, and they didn't get upset and lock me away when I cried. My days in this place were incredibly hard and filled with sadness and tears, but they were also filled with friends, jokes, board games, basketball, music, dogs, hugs, love, therapy, and people who listened. It has been several years now, but my roommate and I still keep in touch and support each other when things get rough. I cannot help but think if I had been here years earlier it would have saved me a lot of grief. The staff was wonderful and caring, and my family and I will be forever grateful. I have wanted to donate but haven't had the money. I truly was saved by this place. It's a religious hospital but they don't force any amount of it on you (thankfully) but they have plenty of services available should you like to take part. I remember my days here fondly (though I would never like to go back) and I truly think this was the first step in a new direction for me. Update: I was in an inpatient ward.
i apologize that mostly everyone else had a bad experience. And I respect your opinion. But i thought the outpatient program was great. The staff was really nice to me. And the therapy helped me a lot. More than i thought it would. At the end it was a bittersweet moment because i knew i would miss the people at the program and im getting better at the same time.#they gave me a tour before I even entered the program:).
