Maryland Addiction Recovery Center, the leader in addiction and dual diagnosis treatment in the Mid-Atlantic area, has recently received the nation’s highest accreditation and certification from The Joint Commission (JCAHO).


An independent, not-for-profit organization, The Joint Commission accredits and certifies nearly 21,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

Receiving JCAHO accreditation ensures that MARC will not only be in complete compliance with state mandates, but will continue to operate at the highest standards set forth by both the state of Maryland as well as national standards of care.

It is very important for us to guarantee to the public and our clients that they will receive the very best quality of substance use disorder treatment in the country.”
