Sandstone Care aims to drive positive lasting change in real people. We understand that you have a life, so we offer a more personal experience than you would find anywhere else.
COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT
We understand that the journey to recovery can be challenging, which is why we have created a comfortable and supportive environment favorable for healing at our Chesapeake treatment center.
Our residential treatment center is ideally situated just 20 minutes west of Annapolis, in the serene area of Chesapeake, MD. Our facility is in a peaceful cul-de-sac, surrounded by ample green space, providing our clients with a sense of privacy and tranquility.
It is our passion and commitment to every client’s lasting success that has helped us attain accreditation and exceed licensing standards of care within the industry.
Dealing with substance use issues can be an overwhelming and complicated journey, especially for more vulnerable adolescents. At our teen rehab center, we understand the importance of addressing these issues before they escalate, and we offer a wide range of comprehensive treatment options to support teens on their path to recovery.
As a leading residential treatment center for youth in Maryland, our top priority is your teen’s recovery and overall well-being. We believe every client deserves personalized, compassionate care and support during their journey to recovery.
Therefore, our team of experts employs evidence-based therapies and holistic approaches to create individualized treatment plans that cater to each client’s unique needs.
Whether your teen is seeking addiction treatment for marijuana, alcohol, opioid, or stimulant use, we have specialized rehab options to address their needs. Our team of healthcare professionals is committed to providing them with a safe and supportive environment that fosters healing and personal growth.
Marijuana has become a way to self-medicate for underlying issues and it’s easy to become dependent on its use.
Studies have found that binge drinking & heavy alcohol use are problematic for young people.
Opioid misuse occurs when a person uses heroin or misuses prescription pain relievers like hydrocodone, oxycodone, and morphine.
Commonly abused stimulants include cocaine, methamphetamines, and prescription stimulants, like Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta.
We offer comprehensive mental health treatment options to help teens achieve lasting wellness. Here are some of our most common mental health challenges we help with:
“Available on short notice via text and phone. Very accommodating, professional, and knowledgeable.”
Our therapy is not the sofa-based, teeth-pulling kind. We use experiential therapy, which means we incorporate movement to connect both body and mind.
“Things progressed where I was at the point that I wanted to die…My life now is very different after going through treatment at Sandstone…The people here, they really care.”
Navigating the maze of addiction treatment options can feel daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Immerse yourself in the heartfelt story of Alex, a real-life testament to the life-changing impact of our programming at Sandstone Care.
Alex is not a statistic or an abstract success story; she’s a person just like you who has struggled with addiction and mental health and has turned her entire life around through treatment at Sandstone.
We do this because we believe in treating the client as a whole person and not just treating their current symptoms. Therefore, in addition to various therapeutic modalities, teens will also engage in the following activities:
Just because a teen is struggling with mental health, trauma, and/or substance use doesn’t mean they aren’t so much more.
Our residential mental health program addresses every aspect of their lives, from physical and mental health to relationships and schooling. The holistic approach we take at our residential treatment program for teens ensures we treat more than symptoms to create lasting, positive change.
At our accredited inpatient mental health facility in Maryland, we offer a peaceful, home-like environment that’s conducive to healing. Our schedule is created around evidence-based practices to support our teen residents’ mental health and well-being.
Evidence-based means that a treatment has been researched both from academic and scientific perspectives and has been proven effective in the treatment of mental health disorders with substance use.
We offer a full day of group programming while keeping the teen’s specific needs in mind. Each day provides a structured curriculum to ensure a productive healing process including:
Mornings at Chesapeake start early, with a wake-up time of 7:00 am. Teens are given adequate time to get ready for the day before they’re asked to come downstairs for breakfast.
Once the teens have eaten a nutritious breakfast, they meet as a group to have a morning check-in.
This morning therapeutic group check-in is a time for everyone to share with the house what they’re feeling, briefly discuss their goals for the day, and anything else they feel is important to discuss.
The remaining of the morning is spent on academics in the onsite classroom. We know it’s important for teens to stay on top of their academic workload which is why we employ certified and credentialed teachers.
These teachers guide teens through assignments, provide one-on-one academic support, and teach important life skills such as organization, decision making, hygiene, vocational aspirations, and money management.
After the teens eat a chef-prepared, healthy community-style meal, they engage in an hour of daily fitness. Staying active is an important part of mental and physical wellness, and is sometimes overlooked in substance abuse and mental health treatment programs.
Fitness activities vary day to day, but often include walking or hiking, yoga, and Crossfit. After fitness, teens sit down with one of the therapists for the afternoon process group.
The weekly group program curriculum is themed, and covers different topics each day. Teens are asked to share their thoughts, experiences, and emotions about things like self-discovery, relationships, emotional wellness, and living life differently.
Art therapy, journaling, traditional talk therapy, music, experiential activities, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) are all utilized throughout the week as teens explore themselves and take a closer look at what brought them to this point in their lives.
Dinner is served family style, with staff and clients sitting down to eat together and engaging in positive conversations. After dinner, teens are given time to work on homework, journal, and decompress from their day.
Depending on the day, they will participate in yoga, psychoeducation groups, art and music therapy, tai chi, or an evening hike. Before lights out, they have one last group check-in.
This gives teens a chance to go over the goals that they set for the day, make any amends they feel are necessary, talk about the positive things that happened during the day, and share with the group any difficult emotions they are feeling.
Sleep is important for everyone, but especially for teens. Experts recommend that the average teen get between 8.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night, so the days end just in time for teens to get a good night of sleep.
Weekends include opportunities for teens to connect with family through a call or teletherapy session, participate in off-site group activities, enjoy time to themselves, or work on homework.
Family time, fun time, and time to oneself is an integral part of the weeks’ activities and aids in a balanced healing process.
We want to make sure teens are feeling refreshed and recharged going into each new week.
Our scientifically proven and evidence-based treatment process continues to earn national praise and foster relationships with the following:
Immanuel Jones shares his survival story from suicide attempt to suicide prevention tips, and helping young people cope with mental health issues.
Erika Alhashmi LPC warns about the danger of teens self-diagnosing their mental health disorders on TikTok.
Peter King LCPC, explains how Sandstone Care provides age-specific, not gender-specific treatment for teens and adults in the LGBTQIA+ community.
Our teen rehab center focuses on our four group process topics that help teens understand they have the resources they need to heal themselves.
During the “looking inward” week, teens focus on self-discovery and looking at their true identity.
The groups during this week will cover topics like labels, core values, beliefs, how they identify themselves, how others define them, and other topics revolving around who they are as people.
The main focus of week two is relationships. Teens will take a closer look at the importance of boundaries, types of communication, identifying support systems, dating, and familial relationships.
During week three, teens focus on cognitive function and emotional wellness using evidence-based treatments like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Topics for this week include things like brain development, mindfulness, forgiveness, acceptance, healing from trauma, nutrition, emotional regulation, and self-expression.
The main focus of week four is implementing and living life differently.
The goal of this week is to support clients as they transition from being in a residential setting to returning back home.
Some week four topics include, making and maintaining good decisions and creating a declaration of self-acceptance,
Parents have the opportunity to participate weekly in their teen’s treatment through family therapy sessions that occur via phone or teleconference. When loved ones are involved in treatment, our staff provides them with the tools they need to help their teen reach long-lasting change.
Additionally, the primary therapist connects with parents weekly, providing updates on how the teen is doing in treatment.
This includes how the teen is responding to therapy, any medication changes, interactions with other teens, and how much they are participating in activities.
We have felt included and supported and are so grateful for the care they’ve provided to our son at such a vulnerable and scary time.
Sandstone Care understands the importance of involving and providing support for the entire family, not just the symptomatic member of the family.
This often causes conflict, tension, and dysfunction within the family system. Parents may become co-dependent on another family member or become enablers of their teen’s substance use without even realizing it.
Our staff are here to help restore lives and they don’t take that job lightly.
Team members are all fully credentialed, incredibly caring, and always willing to chat. Each resident is assigned a multidisciplinary team, which includes a psychiatrist, individual therapist, family therapist, nurse(s), teacher, and recovery counselor(s) to help them succeed.

Our goal is to provide the most helpful information. Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions. We are here to help in any way we can.
Sandstone Care has certified teachers onsite at each of our locations to help support teens with schoolwork. While we are not an accredited school that your child can graduate from, we do provide structured academic support as part of our program. This includes helping individuals through tutoring, homework assistance, college application prep, grade recovery, and educational mentoring.
The teens at Sandstone Care are bright and creative spirits who have been impacted by mental health issues. Typically, they are struggling with, or have experienced, anxiety, depression, trauma, and/or substance use. Teens with a history of violence, teens that are actively suicidal or psychotic, teens that have a severe and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia, or teens that exhibit behavioral issues that would disrupt the treatment milieu are not appropriate for Sandstone Care. Each teen is carefully screened by the admissions team, the treatment team, the Program Director, and if needed, the Executive Clinical Director and Medical Director for appropriateness.
The amount of treatment needed varies greatly and depends on one’s individual needs. At Sandstone Care, we believe that treatment providers should treat our clients as a whole person instead of just treating their substance use disorder or mental health disorders in isolation. Our program is individualized to meet those specific needs and as such the length of stay may vary. The need for medication assisted treatment will also be taken into account. Navigate to one of our specific teen treatment programs to see the standard timeline for each.
While parent involvement is a critical component of our program, Sandstone Care is committed to the health and safety of our clients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are limiting in person visits and utilizing video chats and teletherapy.
We help teens and their families overcome challenges with drugs, alcohol, mental health issues, trauma, and addiction in Crownsville, Maryland.
We understand taking the first step is difficult. There is no shame or guilt in asking for help or more information. We are here to support you in any way we can.
