Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. was recently selected by the Department of Citizen Services in Carroll County, Maryland to implement a residential substance abuse treatment program for forty-eight men and women. Slated to open in February, the program will be located in the newly constructed Carroll County Long Term Treatment Facility in Sykesville, Maryland.

Clients will participate in a structured daily schedule consisting of recovery groups, individual counseling, work therapy, recreational activities and continuing care planning. Length of stay is variable, ranging between six and nine months, based on individual progress. Throughout treatment, emphasis will be placed on relapse prevention strategies and continuing care planning to promote long-term recovery and ensure each client’s successful transition back to the community.

“Spectrum is always looking for new areas to expand and Carroll County presents an exciting opportunity to implement a new program,” said Laura Ames, chief operating officer for Spectrum. “We’re looking forward to working with Carroll County to offer this long-term residential treatment option.”

Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, Spectrum Health Systems, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit provider of substance abuse treatment and mental health services. In addition to Maryland, Spectrum operates programs in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Georgia, Arizona, Maine and Tennessee – serving more than 18,000 individuals each year.
