    The Affiliated Sante Group

    Maryland State Licensed

    Substance Abuse Provider

    Substance abuse treatment and counseling services are now available at our Prince Georges County center.

    According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, approximately 50 percent of individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness are affected by substance abuse. About 37 percent of individuals with alcoholism and 53 percent of individuals with drug addictions have at least one serious mental illness.

    Historically, the substance abuse treatment and the behavioral health care systems have had difficulty helping people manage both illnesses at the same time. Our new capacity will contribute to our ability to provide high quality integrated care.

    The services offered at our Lanham Center include the following:

    • Level 0.5 Early Intervention DWI Education is available Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
    • Level 1 Outpatient Treatment which includes assessment and treatment, as well as individual, family and group therapy, is available Monday – Friday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.
    • Level 2 Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) which includes intensive group therapy sessions, as well as medication management, is available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1 – 4 pm.

    *Services are reimbursable through Medicaid, or on an out-of-pocket basis.

    For referrals, please call 301-298-2628 extension 3100.

    A very special thank you to all the dedicated Santé employees who helped make this a reality.
