Review by Contributors


Located in a wooded area of southern Maryland, outside the small town of Prince Frederick, the Carol M. Porto Treatment Center offers residential and outpatient care for adult men and women who are struggling with problematic substance use. The center also works with courts to provide DUI treatment and other services for local offenders.


The minimum length of stay is 28 days, but clients may stay as long as they need, until they feel ready to leave. Work therapy is a large component of the center's residential treatment program. The center provides little further information about the specifics of its program, though an individual polled by indicated that the program included excellent family participation and treatment for co-occurring disorders, good counseling options, and mediocre holistic offerings.

Suboxone/buprenorphine services are available to both residential and outpatient clients; all clients receiving Suboxone/buprenorphine must also participate in counseling services at the facility. This center's Suboxone clients typically take the drug for three years before weaning off.

The center's outpatient program meets for one hour, once per week.


The center's primary counselors are educated to master's level and certified or licensed in treating mental health and substance use disorders. The single individual polled by to date gave the center five out of five stars for its staff's level of training and experience.


Pictures published on the facility's website show an attractive clapboard home with an exercise room and a chapel. The single individual polled by to date gave the center five stars for its cleanliness and its accommodations and four stars for its meals and its exercise/leisure offerings.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not yet received any reviews directly from alumni of this facility, and secondary sites yielded limited but positive feedback at the time of this writing: two four-star reviews with no accompanying commentary, both left on Google.[1]


The single loved one polled by to date would strongly recommend this facility. "Leaders were good," the anonymous reviewer wrote, giving the center five out of five stars for its family participation and its treatment for co-occurring disorders, four stars for its treatment effectiveness and its counseling options, and three stars for its holistic offerings.


There's a one-time intake fee of $55, following which treatment costs $45 per outpatient session, or $3,750 for 28 days of residential treatment — and almost $1,000 more if the client requires buprenorphine or psychiatric services.

The center accepts private insurance, though insurance is not accepted for buprenorphine/Suboxone services. Uninsured clients may sometimes access public funding through their county's health department.

The single individual polled by to date gave the center five out of five stars for its affordability.
