Pathways is a unique part of Anne Arundel Health System that outsiders rarely see. This 40-bed freestanding complex on the outskirts of Annapolis is open 24 hours a day for the inpatient and outpatient treatment of adolescents and adults with alcohol or drug addictions.
If a single word can capture the spirit of the Pathways program, it would be "caring." A dedicated staff of credentialed professionals and skilled support staff are committed to a patient-centered philosophy that has helped hundreds of individuals since Pathways opened in 1992. A not-for-profit organization, Pathways offers a continuum of medical, outpatient and rehabilitative treatment services tailored to the special needs of each person who comes here.
We are very proud of Pathways. And we are even prouder of our graduates, the teenagers and adults who come to us for help - and who leave with the coping skills to start new lives.
