Maryland Addiction Recovery Center and Caron Treatment Centers are excited to announce they have jointly entered into a management agreement to lead the operations of Encore Recovery Solutions. Based in Arlington, VA., Encore provides intensive outpatient (IOP), partial hospitalization (PHP), and supervised sober living for the treatment of substance use disorder and co-occurring disorders. Effective immediately, this new collaboration expands the capacity of the three organizations to provide innovative and personalized treatment and recovery services to young adults and their families in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.

“I have a profound respect for Encore’s work with young adults and their families,” said Doug Tieman, President and CEO of Caron Treatment Centers. “Our collective resources – such as the leading medical and clinical experts in the treatment sector – allow us to do more than ever before for individuals and families in this region, as well as the treatment community at large. It’s a logical, strategic step for our organizations that will create more opportunities for individuals and families to receive the help they need.”

“MARC is extremely excited to collaborate on this new venture with two great partners in the treatment industry,” asserted MARC Executive Director Sam Bierman. “This partnership is part of MARC’s regional strategy in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area to bring about the most comprehensive and collaborative care to the local community.”

Leaders in the addiction treatment sector, Caron and MARC have a strategic partnership that provides patients in the Maryland, D.C., and Virginia (DMV) area an extensive continuum of care including assessment, detoxification, extended care with community living, outpatient treatment, and family and recovery support services. This is our first joint management agreement.

“Encore Recovery Solutions is proud to be partnered with two organizations that we have long considered to be the benchmarks for quality clinical care and ethical conduct,” explained Christopher Bennett, Founder and President of Encore Recovery Solutions. “By drawing from the resources and expertise of multiple industry leaders, we will broaden our impact in our community and further enhance the clinically sophisticated services Encore has become known for.”

We look forward to expanding our services with Caron Treatment Centers and Encore and helping more individuals and families in the Greater Washington, DC and Northern Virginia areas.
