  • 2014 Road to Recovery Program

    On September 29, 2014, the Ordnance Road Correctional Center hosted state, local health and public safety officials through a tour of its facility to learn more about the Anne Arundel County Department of Health's and the Anne Arundel County Department of Detention Facilities' collaborative Road to Recovery Program.                         .

    Road to Recovery provides methadone maintenance treatment to inmates who become incarcerated while on a methadone treatment program in the community. The program also initiates eligible inmates on methadone treatment. Inmates receive daily medication, assessment and counseling and, upon release, are connected to the Department of Health's Adult Addiction Clinic or to another community treatment program.
