Kolmac Clinic provides outpatient treatment to adults struggling with substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health disorders. Set about 20 miles southwest of Baltimore in Columbia, Md., the clinic is one of six facilities operated by Kolmac, which include locations in Silver Spring and Washington D.C. The Columbia clinic is also one 68 outpatient treatment facilities in Maryland (just 18 percent of all treatment facilities in the state) to provide ambulatory medical detox. Clients must be at least 19 years of age to receive treatment.


Upon admission, clients are assessed to determine if detoxification is necessary. If it is, clients can stay at the clinic for up to 10 hours a day. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependency is also offered, including the use of buprenorphine, which is available in 28 percent of treatment facilities in Maryland.

Kolmac Clinic’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) lasts seven to eight weeks and includes three group sessions per day, each lasting three hours. Treatment utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which commonly discuss issues related to relapse prevention. Clients may also receive medication management, which is monitored by a licensed psychiatrist, to address psychiatric concerns.

After completing the outpatient program, clients can participate in continuing care via weekly, two-hour group sessions. Clients are also highly encouraged to participate in 12-Step or SMART Recovery meetings.


Kolmac Clinic of Columbia is led by a team of medical doctors, psychiatrists, and licensed professional counselors. It employs a multidisciplinary team of master’s-level substance abuse counselors, mental health therapists, psychiatric nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.


While Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, Kolmac of Columbia earned an average rating of 2.8 out of five stars based on 11 Google reviews[1]. Written feedback was mixed. Clients who reported positive experiences described the facility as a well-run clinic with caring staff and effective treatment. "The care at Kolmac is real and the staff is thoroughly professional," Mark wrote in a review representative of positive feedback.

Unhappy former clients, on the other hand, complained about unsupportive treatment. Stacie reported that staff were not flexible in scheduling continuing care, while Gary noted that the facility was quick to discharge him when he relapsed. The facility did respond to Gary's complaint, noting that they have since instituted a special treatment track for clients struggling with relapse.


The one loved one polled by Rehabs.com to date, an anonymous 18-to-25-year-old male, gave Kolmac of Columbia positive feedback. He awarded the facility four or five out of five stars for its cleanliness, its family participation, its treatment of co-occurring disorders, its administrative and discharge procedures, and its staff's level of training and experience. "The rehab was wonderful for my family," he noted. His one complain was that the cost was a little high.


The Kolmac Clinic of Columbia accepts a range of private insurance plans, including Aetna, Cigna, and United Healthcare. According to the facility’s website, the current cost of treatment is $140 for an initial clinical evaluation, $475 per day for detoxification, and $210 per day for rehabilitation sessions. Continuing care services are $140 per session.

I was admitted in January 2012 and I have been sober since. I was impressed with how helpful and professional the staff was.
