Effective 03/18/2020, Behavioral Health will offer limited services. Staff will still answer the phones. Existing clients will be contacted directly to discuss care options (ex: telehealth). Methadone Program continues to operate on an altered schedule.
The Male and Female Forensic Program is designed for individuals who are currently incarcerated at the Wicomico County Detention Center. The inmate must meet the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) placement criteria for Level I care, which can be provided less then 9 hours per week.
The groups for the female population are held two days per week and one evening per week. Male inmates can attend group sessions on the designated day and a work release group is also conducted one evening per week. Participants are required to attend a minimum of one individual session per month along with their weekly group attendance. Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings are held one time per week at the detention center for inmates to attend.
