There are more than 50 rehab centers in Baltimore County, with many more in the city limits. However, not all of these rehab centers offer the same kinds of treatment or the level of care that others do – while some provide inpatient care that is all-encompassing for patients, others are confined to outpatient care that can be limited to only a few hours per week.
No matter which program you use to help you overcome your fight with drug or alcohol addiction, there is the chance that something goes wrong and you get hurt. Whether the harm is committed by another patient or by the rehab center's staff, you deserve to be compensated. After all, it would be unfair for you to pay for the costs of your injuries out of your own pocket.

Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers in Baltimore County
Inpatient rehab centers are the hands-on version of addiction treatment. They require their patients to remain on-site throughout the program and control almost every aspect of their patients' experience.
Because of the substantial level and intensity of the care that inpatient rehab facilities provide, there are far fewer of them than there are outpatient rehab centers. Additionally, most inpatient facilities are associated – and are often even located within – hospitals in the Baltimore area. Finally, while different inpatient facilities do have unique strengths and weaknesses in their treatment plans, they also tend to stick to the same fundamental script of rehabilitative care – differences between how inpatient rehab centers treat addiction is frequently in the details, rather than the fundamentals.
Inpatient rehab facilities near Dundalk, to the southeast of Baltimore city, include:
- Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
- Light of Truth Center, Inc.
- MedMark Treatment Centers
- Grant House
- Dayspring Village
- Hope's Horizon.
Facilities near Towson, on the northern side of Baltimore, include:
- The Maryland Addiction Recovery Center
- MedMark Treatment Centers
- Gaudenzia Addiction Treatment and Recovery
- Mosaic Community Services.
Inpatient centers on the western side of Baltimore, near Ellicott City, include:
- Integrative Counseling, though this facility only accepts young adults for the treatment
- Damascus House, though this facility only accepts men.
Many of these inpatient facilities also provide outpatient services for people who cannot commit – whether because of a lack of time or money – to a full-time inpatient treatment plan.
Outpatient Rehab Centers in Baltimore County
Unlike inpatient treatments for addiction recovery, outpatient plans are less intensive and do not completely take up a patient's day. Instead, outpatient rehabilitation systems allow patients to come for treatment programs -- e.g., individual or group therapy sessions -- and then go home.
Without the need to provide residential facilities or services, like a room and food, for their patients, outpatient addiction treatment centers are smaller, less structured, and easier to run. As a result, most of them are not affiliated with hospitals, run independently from traditional medical services, and frequently occupy buildings that appear nondescript, like an office building or small shop.
The relative lack of structure and relaxed regulations that outpatient facilities have to comport with also means that outpatient facilities are likely to provide addiction treatment that can be fundamentally different from other similar rehab centers. For example, some focus exclusively on group care while others only provide individual sessions. Some use holistic approaches that favor ad hoc treatments based on a therapist's treatment style while others are far more scientific in their approach. Still, others exclusively provide treatment to certain people, like adults, men, women, youth, or LGBT individuals.
Because of the lesser commitment that it takes to run an outpatient rehab facility, there are far more of them in Baltimore County than there are inpatient facilities.

Precisely because these outpatient facilities are prone to be drastically different from one another, patients can find themselves struggling to get the care that they need and would ordinarily expect from several facilities before finding the one that suits them. Many addiction professionals recommend trying several outpatient facilities before becoming discouraged by the results.
Baltimore Personal Injury Lawyers at Gilman & Bedigian
Rehab centers are supposed to be places where people who are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction can go and get the care that they need to overcome their problems. Unfortunately, there are shockingly numerous cases where patients go to rehab, only to get seriously hurt by the care that they receive or by the intentional or negligent acts of other patients or even the staff at the facility. Other patients, themselves struggling with their own demons, have been known to become violent and hurt other people at the program. Staffers at rehab centers have been known to abuse patients that they do not like. Physical and sexual abuse are not unheard of.
