Virtual Mental Health Treatment, Maryland


Virtual Mental Health Program

Since 1997, Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program (DMA) has provided compassionate and evidence-based mental health disorder treatment to those in need. We are pleased to bring this quality care online through our virtual programming for Maryland residents. We serve adults and adolescents of all genders with online intensive outpatient (IOP) care.

Truly Meeting Patients Where They Are

Online virtual programming was intentionally developed to help our adolescent and adult patients get quality mental health care when and where it’s convenient for them. There are various reasons why attending in-person therapy can be hard, including but not limited to packed schedules, certain daily obligations or transportation. This is why it was important to create a program that is accessible, customized and paves a path for success.

Building ESTEEM™ with Evidence-Based Treatment

Our Discovery ESTEEM System™ provides individualized care to help patients develop the skills and confidence they need to create the life they want. With our online virtual program, patients benefit from three therapeutic groups (10:1 ratio) daily with one individual session per week. Evidence-based modalities include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and acceptance & commitment therapy (ACT). They will also learn about mind-body connections that promote emotional wellness through nutrition and movement.

With our HIPAA compliant virtual program, patients can also expect:

Educational support program for youth patients
• Family programming
• Robust aftercare program

Discovery for Life™

After treatment at DMA, patients automatically have Discovery for Life™ – free support that’s with them for a lifetime. Discovery for Life begins with Discovery365™, a 16-point interactive assessment and check-in program for one year after discharge. With Discovery365, we use breakthrough, proprietary technology to intervene when you need additional support. Additionally, we also offer a lifetime of free alumni support that includes:

  • Support groups (online and in-person)
  • Social events dedicated to DMA alumni
  • Educational content through the alumni app
  • And more
