At Maryland Addiction Recovery Center, we understand that recovery is about utilizing your network in whatever location you may be.
After the continuum of care a lot of clients may be going back home or making a move and we want to make sure to enable and support the changes while reintegrating. If you are in Howard County before or after treatment we want to make sure that you have support in a recovery community.
Maryland Healing Network, a network of local therapists, treatment professionals, service providers, holistic healers, attorneys and other professionals that meet in the local Maryland areas of Towson, Annapolis and Columbia. Reaching out and partnering with therapist groups, individual therapists and addiction treatment professionals that co-host in each area, the meetings have become a place where those in the mental health and addiction treatment field and those providers whose work impacts and are impacts by the clients they see come together to discuss what more can be done, how to provide best-in-class practices, how to better and more effectively collaborate, how to find and best support self-care. Each group has organically taken a direction inspired by those professionals sin the local area and what they feel they and their local areas need the most. They laugh, they inspire, they grow, they discuss issues, they share information on their services, upcoming events, trainings and best practices.
