Md. Center for Addiction Treatment to open in Waldorf

Recovery Centers of America (RCA), a community-based addiction treatment provider delivering evidence-based care, will open the Maryland Center for Addiction Treatment (MCAT) Aug. 16 in Waldorf at 11100 Billingsley Road with an opening house from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

The MCAT is a full service, neighborhood based addiction treatment center offering a full continuum of care including medically-monitored detoxification, residential inpatient and aftercare planning services as well as specific treatment curriculums for young men and young women, first responders, adults and aftercare services.

recover-centers-of-america-logoRCA’s Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Deni Carise will speak about how an integrated approach using evidence-based treatments that include cognitive behavioral therapy, RCA’s immersive 12 Step approach and medication-assisted treatment are advancing breakthroughs in patient recovery. Carise addresses behavioral health experts and health care providers nationwide on best practices and efficacy of evidence-based addiction treatments.

In addition, Annapolis-based interventionist Joani Gammill will share her personal perspective and affect of interventions she’s performed for hundreds of families around the country, advocating to reduce the stigma surrounding substance use disorder and how her own intervention for opioid addiction motivated her to change her life.

RCA’s Director of Family Services Trish Caldwell will hold a session to motivate families to take the first steps in their loved ones’ journey to recovery.

Guests will be given opportunities to speak to RCA presenters as well as public officials who will address the community, such as Charles County Commissioner Peter Murphy and State Delegate Edith Patterson who will be issuing the MCAT state citation.

Hors d’oeuvres and speakers will conclude with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7 p.m. Tours of the facility will begin at 7:15 p.m. Registration for the free open house can be found here.
