Encore treats adults for addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.

Encore is a specialized addiction and mental health treatment provider with outpatient and partial-hospitalization programs in Arlington, Virginia. Most Encore patients are in their twenties or early thirties. Many attend college, are recent graduates, or are in the early stages of their career. While many patients live in and around the Washington DC metro area, others come from around the country to receive specialized intensive treatment. Encore maintains an intimate and discreet treatment environment at its outpatient and recovery residence programs.

Encore is especially skilled at helping patients and families with complex cases and dual-diagnosis disorders. It is the rule, rather than the exception, that complicated and often interrelated mental health disorders, trauma, negative experiences, and other factors accompany addiction. Effectively treating these conditions requires a holistic approach that identifies and treats root causes.

Addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders are not equal-opportunity diseases. These disorders are pervasive and affect every aspect of one’s life including physical and mental health, family and community relationships, education and career, and financial and legal security. Effectively treating addiction and mental health disorders requires extensive therapy, peer-support, and learning to live without the need to self-medicate. Addiction treatment programs tailored to the needs, lifestyles, and belief systems of patients are beneficial and can improve outcomes.
