Walden has begun offering services to accommodate patients in Charles County, Maryland. The organization has been operational in St. Mary’s County for over 40 years, and has since branched out to make its comprehensive mental health and substance abuse services available across the region.
Since its inception in 1973, Walden has been at the forefront of behavioral health in its home state of Maryland. The local, community-based organization employs experts specializing in a wide range of services including:
- Mental health, psychiatric, and crisis therapy and counseling for patients with existing or emerging mental health and substance abuse issues.
- Drug and alcohol treatment, offering several levels of outpatient addiction treatment and care. Available to adolescent and adult patients are intervention education, outpatient, intensive outpatient, and continuing care services. Walden’s treatment model includes both individual and group counseling activities.
- Community initiatives and recovery support to provide additional resources, beyond treatment, to individuals seeking recovery from mental health, substance abuse or trauma related issues. Services are also available to loved ones and family members impacted by a patient’s treatment or recovery needs.
Walden’s goal is to make it as easy as possible for patients to access the care they need, when they need it. The website features links to access self-assessments, detailed brochures, videos, and Frequently Asked Questions for current and prospective patients and referring professionals. Walden also has a 24/7 crisis hotline, which is one of the oldest local and professionally staffed hotlines in operation in the United States.
