Our Story


Why we care and why you should too…

Powell Recovery Center provides innovative, high quality behavioral healthcare for public health clients in Baltimore City including treatment on demand for rapid access to addictions and dual recovery care in the fentanyl/opioid epidemic. For more than two decades, PRC has worked to remove barriers to service and put recovery within reach for our public health clients. 

PRC has operated in its current location since 1994. We provide Treatment on Demand, at Powell Recovery Center, this means that most clients are scheduled for an intake within 24 hours of first contact.

At the client’s first appointment, PRC completes a thorough evaluation, medical intervention and placement in treatment. PRC will also triage and schedule a mental health evaluation during that time. A treatment plan is completed and the client starts in treatment group the following day.

A continuum of treatment from intensive stabilization and detoxification to residential and outpatient treatment is provided. PRC’s medical staff includes three physicians, two advance practice nurses and one psychiatrist along with RN’s and medical technicians.

Clients needing Dual Recovery Treatment services, will see the psychiatrist and enroll in the Dual Recovery program shortly after admission to treatment and stabilization. PRC also provides a Psychiatric Rehab Program called LIFE providing support and assistance for independent living in the community for clients who qualify for services.  

PRC has a large staff of addictions counselors, licensed mental health clinicians and peer support staff who work in teams providing daily treatment and support to clients. The behavioral healthcare team works with the medical staff to provide comprehensive treatment.
