Pathways receives substance abuse award

| June 23, 2014 | 1 Comment

aamclogoPathways, an affiliate of Anne Arundel Medical Center, earned national recognition for delivering highly effective, cost-effective inpatient substance abuse care.

The Platinum award designation by Optum, formerly known as United Behavioral Health, bases its honor on clinical data such as such as readmission rates and the average length of inpatient stays collected throughout the year.  The data is compared to that of other regionally-based facilities and Pathways exceeds nearly all areas.

Pathways offers diagnosis and treatment programs for adolescents and adults with inpatient and outpatient alcohol and/or drug addiction treatment. Comprehensive inpatient and outpatient programs are tailored to the individual patient’s needs, with on-site family involvement as an integral part of the recovery process. Extensive continuing care and relapse prevention programs offer patients the important support they need to make the transition to a substance free lifestyle and successful return to the family, school, work and the community.
