Al-Anon is a worldwide organization that offers a program of recovery for families and friends of alcoholics, whether or not the alcoholic seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a drinking problem. Members give and receive comfort and understanding through sharing experience, strength and hope.
No dues or fees. No appointments - walk in and attend a meeting. See website for meeting information.
The primary purpose of Mid-Shore Intergroup is to be sure help is available when a still-suffering alcoholic requests it. Sometimes a person will call for information, and sometimes they just show up. Like the regular A.A. groups, our primary purpose is to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The only requirement of membership is the desire to stop drinking. No dues or fees.
Here are some of the things Intergroup does:
- Answer phone or walk-in requests for help
- Distribute up-to-date lists of A. A. meetings
- Stock and sell A. A. literature
- Coordinate efforts between local groups to carry the message
- Provide information on treatment centers, hospitals and halfway houses
- Serve as a vital link between local members and A. A. General Services.
Chesapeake Treatment Services' clinics are dedicated to the recovery of individuals struggling with opioid addiction. We will offer Suboxone and daily doses of methadone.

We are a licensed facility which operates within all Federal and State guidelines. We have an experienced and professional staff to assist you with your recovery efforts.

Methadone treatment works by eliminating withdrawal symptoms and cravings for illicit drugs. Methadone treatment does not produce euphoria in a person with Opioid Use Disorder.
Suboxone treatment, like Methadone, works by eliminating withdrawal symptoms and cravings for illicit drugs. Suboxone treatment does not produce euphoria in a person with Opioid Use Disorder.
Guest dosing means a patient of one treatment program can be dosed at another program if that patient travels to another area.

The Gratitude House is owned and operated by Realslow Recovery, LLC, a 501(c)3 non-profit with the mission to provide safe, affordable, and supportive housing for all people to live and grow in recovery from substance abuse. We provide recovery housing for men and women in a caring, family-oriented environment located in beautiful downtown Easton, Maryland.
The Gratitude House is an M-SARR and M-CORR certified recovery residence with the capacity for 10 men. By combining the latest in substance-abuse recovery research and evidence-based practice an innovative and successful program never before seen in the mid-shore region was implemented. The Gratitude House has been so successful at providing men with the structure and support needed to achieve recovery the house has had record low turnover and maintains a 96% capacity rate.
After almost a year of providing the means for men on the mid-shore region to recover and become responsible, productive members of society it was clear the organization needed to grow. Men aren’t the only ones in need- women need a Gratitude House, too. The ‘formula’ for success of The Gratitude House for Men is multi-faceted and was translated into The Gratitude House for Women exactly one year later. We are within walking distance to 12 step meetings seven days a week as well as multiple job opportunities and community resources. Our men’s house is fully wheelchair and handicapped accessible.

Rising Above Disease (RAD) is a non-profit dedicated to assisting and encouraging women on their journey in recovery from addiction. Our mission is to help them improve their lives using the resources and guidance from our community.
We provide the most basic of human needs, a roof over their heads, a comfortable bed, a clean shower and the comfort of other women who want to help. We provide assistance in obtaining medical care, dental care and mental health services. We assist our residents in the overwhelming tasks of straightening out the unmanageability of their lives. The bank, the DMV and the Social Security office are often scary places for a confused woman in early recovery. We walk side by side with these women, as we empower them to manage the details of their lives. These simple skills, that many of us take for granted, could be the deal-breaker that drives a woman back to her previous lifestyle. Guidance and support also offered.
