ABOUT MOUNTAIN MANOR TREATMENT CENTER — BALTIMORE

The family-owned Mountain Manor group runs 11 substance abuse treatment facilities that provide the full continuum of care for adults and adolescents in the Maryland/DC region. This facility about five miles west of downtown Baltimore offers detox and residential treatment for adolescents (ages 13 to 17) and young adults (18 to 25) struggling with issues of substance use and co-occurring disorders.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The adolescent and young adult programs are housed in separate units and are unique to the needs of each age group and gender. According to Mountain Manor’s website, the facility is particularly well equipped to treat youth who have been resistant to treatment elsewhere, thanks to a combination of highly individualized treatment and “solution-oriented approaches.”

Also noteworthy is the organization’s dedication to treating youth opioid addiction. Its medication-assisted treatment program uses buprenorphine (Suboxone) and extended-release naltrexone (Vivitrol) along with individual, group, and family counseling.

The residential program combines medical care with psychiatric evaluation and treatment, motivational enhancement, and relapse prevention strategies. It also assesses and treats co-occurring disorders. The Mountain Manor school provides school credit, advocacy for tutorial and educational services, and educational assessments.

For those attending the dual diagnosis clinic, the center offers Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT), which promises holistic, integrated treatment that includes medication and psychotherapy.

The other four reviewers wrote that they felt treatment was not adequate and that staff were unprofessional.
