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 with psychiatric disorders. The organization’s center in Salisbury, Md., in the state’s Eastern Shore region, treats individuals struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders.

The organization also operates facilities in the nearby communities of Easton and Princess Anne. The Salisbury center does not provide detoxification services onsite. Within the state, ESPS is among 52.5 percent of private, for-profit substance abuse treatment facilities.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

To provide individualized treatment for clients, clinicians perform an initial psychiatric assessment and, if needed, a substance abuse evaluation. According to ESPS’s website, the biopsychosocial evaluation and a comprehensive report help to identify “strengths, challenges, and recommendations.”

To address psychiatric conditions, ESPS facilitates one-on-one, group, and family counseling sessions. Treatment is individualized, multidisciplinary, and follows evidence-based practices. Along with counseling sessions, the center provides ongoing psychiatric evaluations and medication management. The facility also offers case management to coordinate community support, services, and resources for clientele.

ESPS conducts a specialized program for DUI offenders that meets Maryland’s requirements for potential driver license reinstatement. The 12-hour program consists of six weekly two-hour classes and is given at the Salisbury site on Fridays from 1 to 3 p.m. If an initial DUI assessment determines that the individual is dependent on alcohol, a 26-week treatment program may be recommended. Within Maryland, ESPS is among 44.4 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities with special programs for DUI/DWI clients.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

ESPS has received accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities – CARF and, as such, is among 32.6 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities in the state of Maryland with that designation. The center employs a multidisciplinary team that comprises physicians, psychiatrists, licensed social workers, and licensed professional counselors (LPCs).

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Rehabs.com has yet to receive alumni feedback to date. At the time of this writing, on secondary sites, ESPS received moderately favorable coverage, including 3.1 out of five stars based on eight reviews on Google [1]. Positive reviewers praised the professionals and staff members, equitable and helpful treatment they received, and ease of scheduling. Reviewer C.H. wrote: “I did see the pysciatrist and was treated as a person by him. He talked to me, not at me. My therapist always nice to me. No problem with appointment or anything like that.”

Conversely, others criticized the professional staff, understaffing conditions, disrespect, and lack of coordination and communication, as referenced by S.B.: “This place hires amateurs to do professional work. I do not recommend their services."

WHAT STAFF SAY

At the time of this writing, the one staff member polled by Rehabs.com had moderately positive opinions of the Salisbury facility. The anonymous employee awarded perfect five stars for family involvement and three out of five stars for both affordability and facility cleanliness and upkeep. However, the reviewer assigned negative ratings of two stars to holistic offerings.

On secondary sites, ESPS received highly favorable coverage from staff to date, including 4.8 out of five stars based on five reviews on Indeed. [2] “All the employees were very friendly and seemed to cultivate a positive work environment,” one representative reviewer wrote.

FINANCING

DUI/DWI classes cost a total of $600, including the assessment. Payment can be split into separate installments during the program. According to its website, “ESPS does not deny services based on inability to pay.”
