Maryland Recovery Celebrates Ten Years!

Maryland Recovery is Celebrating Ten Years

Maryland Recovery has worked diligently to provide reliable mental health and substance use treatments to hundreds of patients across Maryland. Today, we’re proud to announce that we’ve been helping clients find recovery from substance use disorder (SUD) for ten years!

Over the past decade, we’ve met scores of individuals struggling with the effects of SUD, and we’re proud to have helped so many of them start the journey toward recovery. Our journey as a recovery community has enabled us to have made a significant impact on countless lives, and we aim to continue providing the best care possible to those who need it.

The History of Maryland Recovery

In 2013, Maryland Recovery opened as a recovery center in Bel Air, Maryland, with the vision of healing those suffering from SUD and other mental health conditions. The goal was to offer resources and treatment for those who feel they have no options left. Then, as now, we were proud to play a significant role in helping individuals live a life full of hope and healing.

For the past ten years, our wonderful staff has helped clients of all backgrounds overcome the various SUD-related challenges that prevented them from living happy, healthy, prosperous lives. We’re constantly inspired by our clients’ stories and reinvigorated by their journeys because we believe anyone who is struggling has the potential to experience a hopeful future.

We’ve built an experienced staff committed to providing the highest-quality care to everyone seeking treatment. Overall, we at Maryland Recovery are exceedingly proud to have helped so many individuals develop the tools needed to navigate the difficulties of life.

Addiction Recovery and Mental Health Services

Our Addiction Recovery and Mental Health Services

Maryland Recovery provides multiple types of treatment for people experiencing SUD. We believe everyone who is struggling with SUD and other mental health conditions can experience healing, provided they have access to a comprehensive treatment plan developed to meet their unique needs. To that end, we have created a number of program offerings to ensure every client can benefit from treatment at Maryland Recovery.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) is centered at our primary care center in Bel Air. Our expert medical staff provides symptom monitoring along with education and counseling carefully planned to provide clients with valuable skills to prevent relapse and find healthier methods of coping with daily stresses. We understand how important it is to monitor and guide patients through the difficult components of SUD recovery, and our PHP is the most intensive program offered for those clients who need additional support.

Intensive Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment

We also offer intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) closely tailored to each individual’s needs. For those who wish to walk the path toward recovery but also have other matters to attend to, such as school or work, an IOP can provide comprehensive treatment but allow you to maintain a regular work, school, or family schedule. Our IOPs are a great option for people who need treatment options like psychotherapy, group therapy, relapse prevention, tool-building, and a supportive community outside of a residential setting.

Extended Treatment Program

Recovery is a journey, and we understand that for some, certain steps of the journey may require more time than others. It’s important to us to work with our clients as long as they need to ensure a solid foundation for recovery, and that includes providing extended treatment programs for those who require them. We provide recovery housing in Bel Air for those who need to move closer to our facility, and we provide both IOP and PHP services for up to 90 days.

Dual Diagnosis

Dual diagnosis treatment is essential for those who have both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder that must be addressed. For example, someone who has SUD may have bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, or another disorder as well, and the co-occurring disorders can exacerbate one another. It is critical to treat both diagnosed conditions to achieve recovery. Unfortunately, fewer than ten percent of individuals with dual diagnoses receive treatment for both disorders, and our mission is to improve that number and help more people who are struggling.

Holistic Treatment

Holistic Treatment

Maryland Recovery offers a full range of treatment solutions for people with SUD. We thoroughly assess each individual who seeks treatment at our center and build a custom solution that will meet their physical and psychological needs. This holistic approach to treatment means we focus on treating the whole person, not just the symptoms of SUD. Treatment approaches like yoga and meditation can offer healing beyond traditional counseling and medication that provides tools for success after treatment and also focuses on multiple methods of healing.

12-Step Programs

12-Step programs have existed for nearly 100 years and have been an extremely effective strategy for many people who have found recovery. Recovery is a long process, and 12-step meetings can help clients manage SUD and maintain a solid support network moving forward. 12-step programs involve admitting you need help, admitting substance use has made your life unmanageable and that you have your own shortcomings, and asking a higher power for help with these shortcomings.

Veterans Extended Care

Maryland Recovery is proud to assist our veterans with SUD, as they have put their lives on the line to serve and protect our country. Veterans frequently struggle with the traumatic events experienced during active duty long after those events have occurred, and some turn to substances to manage their feelings. Our team is fully committed to helping our veterans find healthier ways to cope with PTSD and other mental health issues, and we’re proud to have made a difference in the lives of veterans from Maryland and all over the US.

Other Activities and Therapeutic Services

While the solutions above are the most common forms of treatment, we also offer other activities and therapies that often serve as components of a holistic treatment plan.

Some of these activities include:

  • Animal therapy, which involves interacting with animals to help individuals feel relaxed and safe.
  • Art therapy, where individuals can use art to showcase their emotions and thoughts in unique ways.
  • Sailing for Serenity Program, which incorporates the joy of sailing as a way to have fun and celebrate sobriety.
  • Acupuncture, a treatment used for thousands of years to address physical symptoms and potentially reduce the desire to reach for substances.

Other Activities and Therapeutic Services

When you visit us with the goal of recovering from SUD, Maryland Recovery is committed to helping you find the treatments that are best for you.

The Last Ten Years as Maryland Recovery

Throughout our ten years of existence, the Maryland Recovery team was met with several different challenges that required us to work together and strive to continue helping our clients. Fortunately, we also found great success in our efforts, and we plan to continue sharing that success with every client who turns to us for help.

“Maryland Recovery was founded over 20 years ago with the specific intent to help people with substance use disorders integrate into society in a healthy and supportive manner. It was a decade ago the vanguard decision was made to accompany community supports with addiction treatment. For the past 10 years Maryland Recovery has provided a holistic, supportive treatment environment to the underserved community of people with substance use disorders.”

The Challenges We’ve Faced at Maryland Recovery

Recovery can be challenging, not only to initiate but also to maintain. Certainly, some patients have found the first treatments we’ve offered aren’t effective in their specific case. However, this solidified our belief that multiple holistic treatments tailored to the individual are the best way to meet each client’s needs, and innovation and persistence became two of our strengths.

Another challenge we’ve had to adapt to is the abundance of new technology that has arisen throughout the past decade. Additional changes in the way treatment took place occurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout these innovations and additions to our treatment options, our mission remained the same: to help people find recovery from SUD.

“The biggest challenge of the past decade has been adjusting treatment to meet the Opioid Epidemic. Our treatment program serves to teach our community the basic tenets of recovery with the ultimate mission to save lives. Operating under the leading principle of ‘where there is breath, there is hope’ we have labored to save lives and prevent overdoses. Keeping these principles at the forefront of our work allows us to provide a treatment which gives our community an introduction to a life which is enthralling enough to leave active using where it belongs, in the past.”

The Successes We’ve had at Maryland Recovery

Maryland Recovery is proud to have received a Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission. The Goal Seal indicates that we have met the highest standards of quality, patient care, and performance in the healthcare field.

Along with being recognized for our efforts, we’ve found plenty of success in helping individuals free themselves from the pain of frequent substance use. Perhaps most importantly, we’ve helped people regain hope in themselves once again. We continue to provide learning resources online and are reaching more people than ever before.

The Future of Maryland Recovery

While we are proud to look back on our ten years of history – and have learned a great deal about ourselves in the process – we are even more excited to continue providing the best SUD treatment solutions in the future. At Maryland Recovery, we’ve taken the advances and lessons we’ve learned about recovery and have used them to hone our treatment offerings moving forward. We also take patient feedback very seriously, and we hope to improve our services so even more individuals can benefit from what we do here.

Our treatment options include several methodologies, including IOPs, PHPs, 12-step programs, and more, and we are forever improving our ability to create each client the program that’s right for them. No two individuals with SUD are the same, and a custom-tailored program can help each begin to walk the path toward recovery.

“The future holds much of the aforementioned approach to saving lives. The most helpful treatment allows our affected community an opportunity to leave their difficult pasts behind them, while utilizing their experiences to inform a bright future. We hold ourselves accountable to the same basic principles as we continue the mission we have established over the past 10 years. We now look forward to the next decade with lessons learned and programs improved to instill more hope, save more lives, unite more families, and support the healing of our community.”

How You Can Support Maryland Recovery

You can support Maryland Recovery by sharing our educational resources and messages of hope to those who may be searching for the recovery community, including our social media, blog posts, and quizzes. For example, if you believe a loved one may be struggling with SUD and co-occurring mental health conditions, encourage them to take one of our online quizzes to determine if they have an addictive personality. Our goal is to reach as many people as possible with information and resources because we believe everyone can be positively impacted by recovery.

If you‘ve received treatment and found recovery with Maryland Recovery, we also encourage you to share how we’ve impacted your life. In addition, consider leaving any feedback you have regarding our programs. If there’s something we can improve, we’d love to hear from you so we can create better treatment solutions for those moving forward. Finally, if you know someone in the Maryland area who could benefit from recovery services, please encourage them to browse our website or contact us via phone or email.

“You can support Maryland Recovery by learning more about the disease of addiction and the benefits realized by addiction treatment. The biggest barrier to treatment is stigma, and stigma is reduced when authentic addiction education occurs.”

I made some amazing friendships with people and really got to take care of ME for a change. I can only speak for myself, but I highly recommend the program and will continue to! I miss all of the staff and hope that I can be involved with them on a professional level one day!” – Talia
