Located in Townson, Md., about 10 miles north of Baltimore, the Maryland Addiction Recovery Center (MARC) offers residential treatment, an intensive outpatient program, and aftercare services for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. In addition, an outpatient program for adolescents is available, and the center provides medication-assisted and ambulatory (outpatient-based) detoxification, or can refer clients to a nearby inpatient detox facility if necessary.


Before beginning treatment, clients participate in an initial medical and psychiatric assessment to help clinicians form an individualized treatment plan and identify any co-occurring mental health concerns.

MARC’s Community Residential Treatment Program blends evidence-based therapies with an introduction to 12-step principles and practices. During residential treatment, clients participate in a rigorous schedule of individual, group, and family counseling sessions. These counselor-led sessions focus on a range of issues such as trauma, gender-specific issues, spirituality, and family dynamics. Individuals with a dual diagnosis also receive psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medication management.

To promote self-sufficiency upon discharge, MARC provides vocational and employment training, such as identifying job opportunities, creating resumes, and preparing for job interviews. Case managers may also help clients to enroll or re-enroll in school.

Once a client is discharged from residential care, they may be encouraged to utilize MARC’s intensive outpatient program (IOP) as a “step-down” aftercare service. IOP begins with five sessions and at least one individual counseling session per week. The three-hour sessions are held in the mornings (9 a.m. to 12 p.m.) and evenings (6 p.m. to 9 p.m.) on weekdays to accommodate clients’ schedules. As the client progresses, he/she gradually attends outpatient sessions less frequently.


According to the facility’s website, the treatment team of includes physicians, master’s level therapists, certified alcohol and drug counselors and certified supervised counselors, licensed clinical social workers, residential supervisors, admission specialists, and a support team. Out of five stars, the three loved ones surveyed by at the time of this writing gave the facility five, four and three stars respectively for the staff’s level of training and experience.


The Community Residential Treatment Program provides a therapeutic, non-clinical atmosphere conducive to early recovery. Images on the facility’s website show double-occupancy bedrooms, spacious communal areas, an entertainment room and a computer room. The four friends and family polled by to date all gave the facility four out of five stars for its accommodations and amenities.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni; however, on MARC’s Facebook page, which the rehab has the ability to edit, the organization received an average rating of 4.9 out of five stars based on 55 reviews.[1] “M.A.R.C is a beautiful facility and the staff members are all very warm and welcoming. They make you feel comfortable right away,” wrote Debby in a representative review.

On Google, MARC received two five-star reviews and one one-star review.[2] Only one respondent — five-star reviewer Jack — provided commentary, writing: “Everybody really cares there about the welfare of the patients.”


The four loved ones polled by to date gave MARC mostly positive reviews. The facility received average and above-average ratings of three out of five stars or higher from all respondents for its treatment effectiveness, its family participation, its cleanliness, its exercise and leisure activities, and its connectivity policy. “The facility was very well put together and helped my relative battle their addiction,” wrote one loved one in a representative review.


According to the facility’s website, MARC accepts several health insurance plans, including Humana, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna. MARC also offers payment plans to assist with any out-of-pocket costs and can facilitate third-party financing. Two of the loved ones gave the facility five out of five stars for its affordability, while the other gave it three stars and wrote “pricing was quite high.”
