PRINCE FREDERICK, Md., – Avenues Recovery, a leading national provider of drug rehab and alcohol rehab treatment facilities, celebrated a grand expansion and ribbon-cutting ceremony at their Prince Frederick MD location.
Hudi Alter, Avenue Recovery CEO, thanked the amazing community partners including the Board of Commissioners, the Department of Health, CalvertHealth, and the Sheriff’s Office, among others. He spoke about the Avenues model of community care, and the warmth with which the Calvert community has embraced Avenues and made the recovery of itsclients a community responsibility and effort.
The highlight of the event was a speech by a client (soon to be alumnus) of Avenues at Prince Frederick. When he first came he wanted to know how his counselor could handle the struggles that come with working with people in rehab, “I asked Dante… How can you all do this? He said… Its because Its worth it all when we see you guys change your lives and become better people… This place has saved my life”.
Along with the rest of the country, the Maryland area is facing unprecedented spikes in overdose and relapse rates. Additional resources to combat this concerning rise are crucial. Alongside other valuable community treatment partners such as nearby CalvertHealth Medical Center, Avenues Recovery at Prince Frederick has committed to maintaining enough capacity to meet the increasing needs of Calvert County.
Avenues is deeply committed to providing clinical excellence and a supportive community to each and every person struggling with addiction. To that end, their Prince Frederick facility has undergone massive renovations in an effort to expand their already significant footprint in the Maryland area.
