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.

Department of Health's Road to Recovery Program
Receives CARF Accreditation
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. The Road to Recovery, a Behavioral Health Bureau program, opened in June 2012 at the Ordnance Road Correctional Center (ORCC).
"The accreditation of the Road to Recovery program by CARF is a testament to the excellent quality of service provided by our Adult Addictions staff as well as that of the ORCC staff," said Acting County Health Officer Jinlene Chan, M.D., M.P.H. "Upon release, the programs participants are more likely than those not in the program to continue their substance abuse treatment instead of returning to drug use. This achievement is evidence of the programs positive impact on the health of our County residents and our communities."
The Anne Arundel County Department of Detention Facilities Superintendent Terry Kokolis said, "The Road to Recovery program has been an innovative partnership between Detention Facilities and the Department of Health, and it is exciting to see the early outcomes demonstrating a reduction in the re-arrest rates. This national recognition is well-deserved for the consistent and committed efforts of the Adult Addictions leadership and staff."
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.
