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 six miles west of downtown Baltimore offers detox, residential treatment, and outpatient care for adolescents (ages 13 to 17) and young adults (18 to 25) struggling with substance abuse 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, cognitive behavioral approaches, motivational enhancement, and relapse prevention strategies, and assesses and treats co-occurring disorders. The Mountain Manor school provides school credit, tutoring, 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.
According to Mountain Manor’s website, staff includes board-certified psychiatrists, pediatricians, licensed social workers, psychologists, nurses, therapists trained to treat co-occurring disorders, and certified addiction counselors. The five individuals polled on the staff’s level of training and experience at the time of this writing gave it an average rating of 4.4 out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Although the facility’s website notes very little information about its living arrangements and amenities, it does note transportation is provided at no cost to local clients. The six individuals polled on the facility’s cleanliness at the time of this writing gave it an average rating of 4.33 stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
To date, Best-rehabs.com has received three reviews from alumni of this facility, of which one was positive and two negative. The anonymous positive reviewer gave the facility four or five stars for almost every evaluated aspect of the facility, including its accommodations, holistic options, and overall treatment effectiveness. “They are full of caring people not there for just their paychecks, they really want to help people get better,” the alum wrote.
The other two reviewers wrote that they felt treatment was not adequate. One alum, Vic, wrote “counseling was not very good and many many fights were going on.” Another alum wrote that AA meetings would have provided just as much education, and criticized the physical facility. “It's nothing but a run down 1970's era motel that needs refurbishing badly… Lousy food,” they reported.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Of the nine loved ones surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing, six gave positive reviews of the facility, two gave negative feedback, and one was ambivalent. The five loved ones polled on the facility’s counseling options, family program, and holistic options gave them above average ratings of four, 4.2 and 3.8 out of five respectively.
More than one reviewer praised Mountain Manor’s flexibility about payments and qualified staff. For example, M.W. wrote that after the insurance company stopped paying for her son’s treatment, the “facility agreed to keep him despite that decision as long as family paid the boarding fees.” An anonymous loved one, whose cousin attend the facility, wrote “The way the staff has your back and pushes you to succeed is amazing.”
Yet others raised serious concerns about a lack of proper care and attention. M.O. felt that their child did nothing at Mountain Manor but watch movies, adding “The feel of the place is not warm and frankly seems disorganized.” An anonymous loved one wrote that “staff acted unprofessional,” although they added, “The facility was helpful and staff knowledgeable.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
