At Fresh Start Recovery Center, the addiction treatment therapies that will make up your personalized recovery plan combine evidence-based therapeutic modalities with more holistic approaches aimed at treating the whole patient. This means that as you recover, your addiction therapy will do more than provide you with the tools you need to overcome your addiction. It will also train you to use these tools to ensure your long-term recovery.

Our Addiction Treatment Therapies in MD 

Recreational Therapy

man talking with therapist in addiction treatment therapiesRecreational therapy is a kind of addiction therapy that involves using social activities, excursions, and hobbies to address a patient’s psychological and physical needs. It regularly includes physical activities like sports, dance, yoga, and Tai Chi, as well as arts and crafts projects and community outings. By reducing stress and working on social skills, recreational therapy improves one’s overall well-being and lays the groundwork for long-term recovery.

Expressive Therapy

Expressive therapy is one of several addiction therapy programs that give patients new ways to express themselves. Delving into the arts helps patients to better express themselves by giving them a creative outlet, and it gives them a healthy means of working through difficult emotional issues.

Group Therapy

At Fresh Start Recovery Center, sharing your experiences — and talking to others about theirs — is the foundation of our addiction therapy programs. Group addiction therapy allows you to build a strong support network as you create successful strategies and develop coping skills that will aid your long-term recovery.

Trauma-Focused Therapy

As part of our addiction treatment therapies, we will help you directly address any underlying trauma. Your individualized therapeutic plan will focus on identifying any trauma in your past to ensure that it does not threaten your long-term recovery or result in relapse down the line. 

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is an evidence-based therapeutic modality that encourages patients to examine how they can take steps towards positive change. This approach to addiction therapy involves responding to a series of questions in an individual therapy session so that patients can focus on their strengths and figuring out what motivates them to start making positive changes. 

Family Therapy

Mental health crises and addiction often cause family strain. In family therapy, we work with patients and their loved ones to heal these rifts as we establish healthy strategies for strengthening the family unit. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication-assisted treatment involves administering strictly controlled doses of medication to ease severely addicted patients off of drugs. We simultaneously utilize a variety of addiction treatment therapies to help get to the bottom of what is causing their addiction.

Co-occurring Diagnosis

In many cases, individuals struggling with addiction are also suffering from an underlying mental issue like depression or anxiety that fuels their substance abuse. At Fresh Start, our experienced team specializes in treating these co-occurring issues simultaneously.   


Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of many accepted addiction treatment therapies that we also use in mental health treatment. The focus of CBT is to relearn healthy coping skills to engage with the stresses of our everyday lives by talking through problems. CBT sessions focus on identifying goals and putting specific strategies in place for when problems and temptations arise outside of an addiction therapy setting. 


At Fresh Start, our care does not end when you leave our program. As you transition into your new drug-free life, we will be there to help at every step of the way. This means providing resources and educational materials as well as social and therapeutic support to help you achieve long-term success.
