The Adult Addiction Clinic provides an outpatient treatment program for adults who are addicted to narcotic drugs such as heroin. The program offers methadone and buprenorphine in combination with individual, group and family counseling.

The treatment program includes drug and alcohol education; urinalysis for drugs; medical exams; and screening for tuberculosis, hepatitis and HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Adult immunizations are given as needed. Referrals are made to other services as needed.

Anne Arundel County adult residents who have been addicted to narcotic drugs should call to find out if they are eligible. Based on screening information, some residents may be linked to other providers in order to best meet their needs. Fees for services are determined on a sliding scale based on family income.

Road to Recovery Program

The Road to Recovery, a Behavioral Health Bureau program, opened in June 2012 at the Ordnance Road Correctional Center (ORCC) in Glen Burnie, Maryland.

The Road to Recovery Program helps offenders and ex-offenders prepare to return to society following incarceration. The program provides

  • substance abuse education classes,
  • substance abuse assessments, and 
  • pre-release treatment planning.

In the Fall 2013, the Anne Arundel County Department of Health's Adult Addictions program, Road to Recovery, was accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities International (CARF) for a period of three years -- the longest accreditation period possible.  

Road to Recovery offers methadone maintenance treatment for inmates who are detained while on a community methadone program. Patients receive medical evaluation, individual counseling, case management, assessment and release planning, recovery coaching, and family reunification support. When ready for release, the patient is transitioned to the Department of Healths Adult Addictions Methadone Program until admitted to their original program, thus ensuring no break in treatment. The primary goal is that once released the patient will continue in recovery services which results in a reduction of criminal activities and recidivism rates. In the program's first year, 90 percent of the released patients that continued their treatment were not rearrested.

In the Fall 2014, staff at the Ordnance Road Correctional Center hosted a tour of the facility for state and local health and public safety officials to learn more about the Anne Arundel County Departments of Health and Detention Facilities' collaborative Road to Recovery Program.
