The Johns Hopkins Broadway Center for Addiction offers comprehensive outpatient treatment services for persons with acute or chronic substance use disorders. Drug addiction is a disorder that ultimately impacts on all aspects of personal and family functioning. Therefore, the program has a holistic approach to care delivery, addressing medical, psychiatric, social service and family needs through on-site, integrated program services.

In reference to its primary service location at 911 N. Broadway, the program is sometimes referred to as the '911 Program'. In addition, the program operates a certified halfway house for female patients - the Wilson House.

Services in the Broadway Center include outpatient opioid detoxification, intensive outpatient, standard outpatient, and opioid maintenance treatment. In all levels of care, patients receive individual counseling by a primary therapist/counselor who provides treatment aimed at short-term problem solving (e.g., arranging stable housing), substance abuse education, sobriety planning and relapse prevention, HIV education and risk reduction counseling, and referral and follow-up to hospital and community resources.Breath-test measurements of alcohol levels are conducted at each clinic contact and urinalysis testing for other drug use is conducted according to program guidelines. Lunch is provided at the program. Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are hosted on-site during clinic hours. A variety of gender-specific groups are provided for women.

BA- or MA-level certified addiction counselors and licensed therapists provide direct services. Master's-level licensed staff, doctoral-level psychologists and physicians provide clinical supervision.Services are directed by licensed psychologists and physicians with a specialty in addiction services. Programs are accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and the State of Maryland. These publicly-funded substance abuse programs serve East Baltimore residents, providing outpatient, intensive outpatient, and halfway house services, without regard to ability to pay.
