Great food and a great cause drew supporters to the Samaritan House’s 4th Annual Burritos for Beds breakfast fundraiser in Annapolis.

During the 3-hour donation-only event at Chevys FreshMex, guests contributed over $25,000 to the Samaritan House Campus of Recovery expansion which will double the treatment capacity at the state-certified halfway house.

Listen to Nick Morrison tell his story of addiction and recovery:

Since 1971, Samaritan House has been working with adult men battling drug and alcohol addiction. Housed on eight wooded acres in a secluded pocket of property off Forest Drive in Annapolis, Samaritan House is a residential care facility with 16 beds in the main house and 9 transitional beds in a secondary house. Clients enter Samaritan House after medical detox to receive individual and group counseling, case management, life skills training and career/vocational counseling. The average length of stay is 9 months.

For more information on the Samaritan House, see www.samaritanhouseannapolis.org  If you are interested in giving, online credit/debit donations can be made on the website or you can mail your donation to Samaritan House, 2610 Greenbriar Lane, Annapolis 21401.
