Maryland Outpatient Center

Partnering with Sandstone Care

Sandstone Care is led by a highly credentialed team of psychiatrists, clinicians, and other healthcare professionals. We are dedicated to treating young adults and teenagers who struggle with substance abuse, addiction, and co-occurring disorders.

Partnering with treatment professionals is a foundational component of our treatment program and is recognized as being critically important to improving continuity of care and ultimately achieving long-term, successful outcomes with our clients. Together we make a real difference in the lives of the clients we work with.

For Professionals

Sandstone Care provides a full continuum of care for clients ages 13-30, but sometimes we are not able to provide services for some clients. This is why we partner with a variety of mental health and substance abuse treatment providers in order to provide the best care possible to clients in the Maryland area.

Providing integrative and collaborative care is an important part of healthcare. By partnering with organizations and healthcare professionals that provide quality and consistent care, we are able to create the strongest and most effective treatment team possible.

Referring Clients to Sandstone Care

When you make a professional referral to Sandstone Care, you become our valued partner from the beginning to end.

Professionals can refer their clients to Sandstone Care by reaching out our admissions department 7 days a week or by contacting their local Community Outreach Ambassador who can act as a liaison during the referral process.

If it is determined that Sandstone Care is not the right program for your client, we will initiate what we call a “warm transfer.” Whether this happens after a clinical assessment or at initial call with our admissions team we will always provide you with the right resource, contact information, and a warm transfer to that provider.

While Sandstone Care offers a full continuum of care, some of our services may require you to travel in order to access them. Our specially trained admissions coordinators will assess your individual needs and situation to properly provide a recommendation of traveling to one of our programs or providing a local warm transfer to a more geographically convenient provider.

Working for Us

We are always focused on improving the lives of young people, which is why we make it our goal to hire individuals who have a similar goal. If you are passionate about working with teens and young adults, and believe in Sandstone Care's Inspire and Empower Change mission, we encourage you to reach out and apply for various positions at our Maryland office.

We regularly host a variety of events at Sandstone Care. Most events are ideal for health professionals looking for fresh perspectives, educational presentations, and training. Each educational presentation offers CEUs and CPDs.

Managing TBI & Addiction in a COVID19 World

Friday, August 7th from 9:00-11:00

Presented by: Dominique Condevaux LPC LAC

Where: Sandstone Care Zoom platform

Course description:

This professional development webinar is designed to educate the behavioral health specialist with a primer in treating co-occurring disorders of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and substance use disorder (SUD). With similarities in outward (physical) behaviors and (mental) attitudes, differentiating between the two disorders has proven to be a challenge to many treatment providers. Following this webinar, the clinician will have additional information to better differentiate between the role of TBI and addictions in client presentation while working with clients exclusively through an online (telehealth) platform.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify and define addiction and brain injury to understand the similarities and differences the two may present.
  • Identify and explain assessments used to assist in diagnosing brain injury.
  • Discuss addiction treatment modifications used with brain injured clients.


Dominique Condevaux is a licensed addiction and professional counselor, a master addiction counselor who is nationally and distance credentialed. She specializes in working with addictions, trauma, grief and transitions. Although, Dominique's private practice is located in Aurora, CO, she practices exclusively through telehealth during this unpredictable time of COVID19.

Group 101: Deepening The Process In Psychotherapy Groups

When: Friday, September 25th, from 9 am - 12 pm
Where: Online via Zoom

Do you ever get the sense that your groups could be so much better, and feel more alive? Each and every moment in a group is full of potential. It’s an opportunity for members to connect with each other and to their present experience. Tapping into the present moment is a way to access the emotional, somatic and unconscious worlds within and between. Join Marc Azoulay, LPC, LAC, CGP as we explore the concept of Immediacy in the group process. By attending this workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to develop as a clinician by learning both cognitively and experientially. This workshop is brought to you in collaboration with the Four Corners Group Psychotherapy Society.

Experiential Interventions in Addiction Treatment: Engaging Young Adults

When: Friday, November 8th, 10am - 12pm
Location: Sandstone Care, 11820 Parklawn Drive, Suite #403, North Bethesda, MD 20852

Presenter: James M Ryan, LCPC, Director of Emerging Adult Services at Ashley Addiction Treatment

About The Event: Emerging adults struggle to engage in Substance Use Disorder treatment services for a variety of reasons. Their families are challenged with a myriad of obstacles when attempting to support them in this process. Traditional treatment approaches have proven largely ineffective with these “treatment resistant” clients. Change in treatment philosophy and delivery of services is needed to improve outcomes. Through the use of experiential interventions clients are more effectively engaged and outcomes are dramatically improved.
