Montgomery County Substance Abuse Treatment Program to Relocate

November 15, 2011

ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — White Flint Recovery, a Montgomery County, MD substance abuse treatment program, has relocated to 416 Hungerford Drive Suite 209 in Rockville, Maryland. White Flint Recovery has been serving the Washington, DC metropolitan area for over 20 years with compassionate care in the field of substance abuse counseling and education.

The increasingly alarming rates of alcohol use amongst the population of Montgomery County, MD have encouraged White Flint Recovery to move to an area easily accessible to the county’s public transportation system. Just minutes away from the Rockville Metro station and multiple Ride-On transit stops, the 416 Hungerford Drive location will provide an overall richer experience to our clients. White Flint Recovery is dedicated to providing addiction treatment of the highest quality to ensure the well-being of our immediate and surrounding communities.

According to a 10-year study by researchers at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), hospitalizations among 18-24 year-olds have increased by 76% for combined alcohol and drug overdoses, while the rate of poisonings from prescription opioid pain medications and related narcotics has increased by 122% over the last ten years. The cost of hospitalizations for drug and alcohol overdoses among this age group now exceeds $1.2 billion per year, while hospitalization cost for drug and alcohol overdoses in the entire population 18 and older was $15.5 billion in 2008 alone.

White Flint Recovery’s mission to educate its clients of the dangers of substance abuse and help those recovering from alcohol and drug addictions remains imperative to the mental, physical, and financial health of our community. Every person in recovery represents a triumph over the burden of drug and alcohol addiction.
