Program Overview

Serving the Greater Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia area, Encore treats substance use and co-occurring behavioral health challenges through a trauma-informed approach that addresses underlying issues that often prevent long-term recovery.

Encore Outpatient Services is conveniently located in Arlington, Virginia, a short walk from the Ballston Metro Station.

Our programming is designed to address negative patterns of substance use and co-occurring disorders, such as mood and anxiety disorders, traumatic stress disorders, and other maladaptive or compulsive behaviors that often coincide with substance misuse. In order to achieve the goal of long-term recovery, Encore utilizes an approach that uncovers and addresses those behaviors and disorders with integrated, holistic care that addresses the whole person -- body, mind, and spirit.

We understand that priorities such as your job, education, and family require flexible treatment programs so we offer evening and daytime programming.
