Services to start within three months, expand after 18 months
Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner today announced that Maryland Treatment Centers, Inc., has been awarded up to $710,000 in grant funds to offer detox services in the county. Medically supervised detox services will allow individuals to safely recover from withdrawal under the supervision of medical providers. Services will be available in Emmitsburg in approximately three months, and an additional center will open in Frederick in about 18 months.
“This is great news for Frederick County residents struggling with addiction,” Executive Gardner said during her public information briefing. “Our community will have access to detox services much sooner than anticipated, offering hope for recovery.”
