Our staff works with insurance carriers and other payers to advocate for the most clinically appropriate level of care and length of stay possible for each client. Because we understand how “at sea” men and women struggling with severe drug addiction or alcohol addiction can feel, we named our inpatient treatment facility Anchor.
Located in Charlotte Hall, Maryland, in a quiet, semi-rural setting, this state-of-the-art facility was built specifically for use as an inpatient treatment facility. Our purpose at Anchor is to provide:
- Medically-monitored detoxification
- Medical stabilization
- Tools for recovery through education and counseling
- Support in managing recovery and wellness after discharge from our program
SERVICES & STAFF
Individualized services, built with an emphasis on the best available science around disease as a brain-based illness, include a trauma-informed care approach and a commitment to exploring mental health and other wellness needs while in our care. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) options are available with us as clinically appropriate, and we strive to assist patients already enrolled in MAT programs.
Our Staff includes medical professionals, a counseling team led by master’s level clinicians, and peers with life experience in managing addiction and training in recovery support.
LIFE AT ANCHOR
A typical day at Anchor is a full one. We keep our clients engaged in learning and activities to encourage recovery-oriented rather than using-oriented thinking. Care Coordination and planning for life in recovery are integrated into the entire treatment experience. We strive to create opportunities for family education and support; an on-site weekly Family Education Session, weekly family visits, and additional family support options at Beacon of Hope lead our family support efforts.
Many of our clients are seeking as much time in a structured treatment setting as possible to strengthen their abilities in managing illness and stabilizing recovery. Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an option for men and women who would benefit from the structured, healing environment of all-day treatment while staying in a Walden residential housing program or at home. Residential treatment within our continuum also includes North Star at Compass and Dockside; these longer-term, transitional treatment levels of care offer men and women a sober living environment, full participation in treatment and care management services, and the opportunity to build community supports.
All programs at Walden are designed for clients who live in our catchment area to utilize our full continuum of outpatient care and recovery support centers.
