August 1st, 2020 Covid-19 Update

Dear family, alumni and future clients,

Since the beginning of March 2020, our staff and clients have done a fantastic job minimizing the risk of contamination at our facility.  We have been sanitizing our facility constantly throughout the day, wearing face protection, practicing social distancing, and going beyond CDC recommended guidelines to keep our clients, staff, and their family members safe.

On August 1st, 2020, one of our Staff Members tested positive for Covid-19.  The staff member had been in isolation since Wednesday, July 29th, 2020.  Out of an abundance of caution we immediately put in place our COVID Response protocols,  we alerted the Anne Arundel County Health Department and had all staff members and clients scheduled for testing.  We contracted a 3rd party company specializing in COVID sanitation, and all clients were tested and safely discharged out of our care within 72 hours and were provided the opportunity to transition for continued care with trusted partners within the industry.  Our facility is currently going through an intensive 14-day sanitation period, additionally all staff members are currently self-quarantining for 14 days.   We will resume operations on August 17th, 2020, to ensure that there is no longer a present threat of COVID.  Thank you for your continued patience and support during this time.

Our admissions staff are currently accepting calls and preparing intakes starting August 17th, 2020.  If you or a loved one are seeking Residential Addiction Treatment Services, please contact our Admissions number.

Additional Resources

We have organized a fundraiser for the Anne Arundel County Food Drive, and we need your help!

During these unprecedented times, the need for community action is more important than ever. This is why the employees of our facility have come together to launch a fundraiser for those most impacted by COVID-19.  

The nonprofit organization we have selected is the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. Their work is essential to make sure those in need receive access to food and supplies at local food banks and other centers.

Since Gov. Hogan has issued a State of Emergency, food banks are anticipating a higher need for their services since schools and many businesses are forced to close. 

"Approximately 30,000 children in Anne Arundel County that depend on the FARM (free and reduced meal) Program may be at home with no access to those meals."
