Addiction, substance use disorders, and co-occurring mental health conditions are exceptionally complex medical issues that affect every aspect of a person’s life. We cannot possibly solve or address every single problem facing our clients and families, but we believe strongly that our community can. Encore Outpatient Services works to connect its clients to Washington DC and Virginia’s vibrant, supportive addiction treatment community as well as medical, educational, and vocational resources.Arlington, Virginia and the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area are home to some of the most educated, experienced, and talented addiction treatment professionals in the world. We have a host of top-rated universities within walking distance from our public transportation system, and we offer a richness and diversity that is virtually unrivaled. Job opportunities in the DC area are plentiful, the recovery community here is vast, and the area is home to one of the highest concentrations of the millennial generation in the country.We customize care to the individual’s and family system’s specific needs. This necessitates a flexibility and access to resources that can only be achieved via a large network that extends beyond the walls of our offices. Encore Outpatient Services maintains relationships with local universities and employers to create opportunities for our clients. We work closely with members of the recovery community to ensure our clients can develop a sober support network and social outlets that are in harmony with their own recovery. We seek out and contract with specialists as needed when our clients require a service or clinical approach that we do not offer.Since the strength of Encore is drawn from our surrounding community, we would be remiss if we did not contribute to our community through service. Our leadership is involved in local, state, and national organizations focused on policy, advocacy, and the eliminating the stigma that surrounds substance use disorders, behavioral health and addiction treatment. We encourage our clients to engage in service and volunteer work to enrich their lives, develop skills, connect with others, and give back.If our clients require a higher level of care than what we offer or a service we can’t provide, we can refer them to an appropriate resource from our trusted network of providers.
