ABOUT EASTERN SHORE PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES

Eastern Shore Psychological Services (ESPS) is a regional, community-based mental health treatment provider that offers outpatient-based services to children, adolescents, and adults struggling with psychiatric disorders. One of four treatment locations, the facility in Salisbury, Md., in the state’s Eastern Shore region, also provides treatment for individuals struggling with chemical dependency or co-occurring disorders. The treatment provider operates facilities in the nearby communities of Easton and Princess Inn. The facility does not provide detoxification services.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To provide individualized treatment, clinicians initially perform a psychiatric assessment, and if needed, substance abuse evaluation. According to the facility’s website, the biopsychosocial evaluation and a comprehensive report helps to identify “strengths, challenges, and recommendations.”

While the facility does offer treatment for substance abuse, namely programming for DUI offenders, ESPS specializes in providing mental health support and treatment for individuals without financial means to other forms of care. In addition, the facility describes their specialty as treating individuals “who are at risk for violence and those who are emotionally disturbed, behaviorally disordered, victimized, delinquent, and/or suffering from attachment disorders.”

To address psychiatric conditions, ESPS facilitates individual, group, and family counseling sessions. Along with providing a setting to process specific concerns, counseling sessions promote free expression, self-awareness, and tools to help stabilization. Clients may be introduced to coping strategies, anger management techniques, and skills for emotional regulation. Along with counseling sessions, ESPS provides ongoing psychiatric evaluations and medication management. The facility also offers case management to coordinate community support, services, and resources for clientele.

The facility offers a specialized program for DUI offenders that meets the State of Maryland’s requirements for potential driver license reinstatement. The 12-hour program consist of six weekly two-hour classes. The program involves educational classes on alcohol abuse and traffic safety. If an initial DUI assessment determines that the individual is dependent on alcohol, a 26-week treatment program may be recommended.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

ESPS employs a multidisciplinary team comprised of physicians, psychiatrists, licensed social workers, and licensed professional counselors (LPCs).

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Although Rehabs.com has yet to receive alumni feedback to date, secondary sources revealed a generally positive consensus regarding the facility. On ESPS’s official Facebook page, which ESPS can manage, 23 reviewers gave the facility an average 4.3 out of five rating.[1] Many reviewers felt the staff was a strength of the facility. “The staff in Salisbury is wonderful. They go above a beyond for their clients. Everyone is very friendly and helpful,” Felicia, a representative reviewer, wrote. Alum Greg added: “This is a fantastic center to go for all types of psychological services and their social workers and counselors are top notch.”

WHAT STAFF SAY

The sole staff member polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing had mixed opinions of the facility. Although the survey respondent gave the facility’s treatment effectiveness a rating of four out of five stars, they gave a two-star rating for the inclusion of holistic treatment approaches. However, the employee gave a perfect five-star rating for the level of family participation in treatment.

FINANCING

There is currently no information provided on the facility's website regarding its costs. However, the facility’s website states: “ESPS does not deny services based on inability to pay.”
