    What our alumni are saying


    Avenues of Maryland was a great choice for the beginning of my recovery. I knew I needed a place that was going to be longer than 30 days and Avenues offered a 60 day program which fit my needs perfectly. The staff is great – there is not one area of staff that isn’t caring and supportive, starting from the RC staff all the way up to the clinical staff. The clinical staff is great when it comes to the needs of the clients and their personalized care. I love my counselor Michelle. I will forever be grateful and appreciative of the time and effort she put into me. All the things she did for me while here at Avenues and setting up the next phase of my treatment plan to make sure it was fit my needs. I needed a place with people who were going to push me to dig into what this disease of addiction is all about but do it with a loving yet tough push. If you were where I was and know you need help but you need the right place and the right people Avenues of Maryland might be the right place for you. Yes, YOU WILL have to work for this thing called Recovery and Avenues offers intense treatment but there is no better place to start with better people. Thank you Avenues!!!


    This is an amazing treatment facility. I am truly blessed to have experienced recovery here. The staff is amazing, the food is outstanding, the counselors are phenomenal, and the groups are extremely helpful. Going to this treatment facility was one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made. After completing my 28 days here I actually extended my treatment here because it was so good. Now that I have completed my program at the Avenue Recovery I am on to my next step in my recovery. I have so much confidence in my recovery thanks to my experience at The Avenue Recovery center in Prince Frederick, MD


    Avenues is truly a lifesaving program. Being here has allowed me to gain the tools and knowledge I’ll need to carry on throughout my recovery process. The staff is extremely considerate and helpful in all aspects through my journey for maintaining my sobriety. If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish amazing things!
