Towson, Maryland (PRWEB) May 13, 2015
Maryland Addiction Recovery Center, the authority in comprehensive addiction treatment services in the Maryland and Washington, D.C. area, has announced they will be holding an Open House ceremony on June 3, 2015 from 12:30pm to 5pm to celebrate the opening of a brand new clinical space in Towson, MD.
Having opened initially a year and a half ago, the overwhelming need for MARC's comprehensive patient and family treatment programs coupled with impressive professional and community support made the need for expansion and larger clinical space a necessity.
"At the beginning of 2014 we opened with a great space in Towson," said MARC's Director of Business Development Zach Snitzer. "However, we grew much more rapidly than we thought and began developing a number of community programs fairly quick and it became apparent that the size of our space just wasn't enough. So we have now moved into a beautiful 8000 square foot clinical space that will allow us to house all of our programs and expand further."
At MARC's last open house, White House Deputy Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) David Mineta was on hand to speak with the crowd. This year, remarks will be given by MARC Executive Director Sam Bierman, Regional Vice President of Washington DC for Caron Treatment Centers Tara Handron and Peter Bruun, Founder of the New Day Campaign.
"It is professional partnerships like we have established with Caron and relationships with community organizations like the New Day Campaign that we feel have allowed us to grow so quickly and offer quality treatment for more people in need," Snitzer explained. "We are also expecting many community leaders and professional colleagues but also hope to see Governor Larry Hogan, Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford any many other of our political leaders. Addiction is now on the forefront of people's minds so we hope to see our elected leaders out supporting treatment for addiction."
Refreshments will be provided and art from the New Day Campaign will be on display, aiming to being conversation and help break the stigma of mental illness and addiction.
Maryland Addiction Recovery Center offers recovery-oriented, abstinence-based comprehensive addiction treatment for patients and families. Programs include full day (PHP) treatment, intensive outpatient (IOP) and ambulatory opiate detox. MARC also offers many free community resources like a bi-weekly parent support group and a free monthly educational seminar featuring former Baltimore County Drug Czar Mike Gimbel.
