Current Phase: Construction

This project provides for the planning, design and construction of a replacement facility for the existing Avery Road Treatment Center (ARTC). The existing facility provides residential substance abuse treatment for low-income County residents. The County entered into a public-private partnership with assistance from the State to complete the project.

A new service contract (along with the lease) with Potomac Healthcare Foundation (PHF) went into effect February 1st, 2017. HHS administers the service contract. DGS administers the lease. Temporary relocation of most of the service off site to PHF property occurred in early 2019.

Noelker & Hull Associates, Inc., Frederick, MD , have been selected as the architect for this project.

Costello Construction Inc., from Columbia, MD, have been selected as the General Contractor for construction.

Construction started in Spring 2019 and is currently scheduled to finish in Fall 2020.

Current Project Images

Avery Road Treatment Center provides residential, non-hospital detoxification and intermediate care services for adults. Clients can self-refer, or can be referred by Access to Behavioral Health, jail, hospitals, or other treatment providers. Priority populations include pregnant women, individuals diagnosed as HIV+, AIDS, Hepatitis C or TB/PPD+. Also included are individuals with Child Welfare or criminal justice involvement, and those with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders.

The existing facility provides 20 medical detox and 40 Intermediate Care Facility beds. Capacity provided by the replacement facility may shift depending on the agreement developed under the public-private partnership.
