HELPING OTHERS FOR OVER 40 YEARS
Since 1971, Samaritan House has helped men on their journey to an addiction-free life. Founded by recovering addicts who saw a need for residential care, Samaritan House started on West Street in Annapolis, Maryland.
After receiving state certification in 1986, the Samaritan House moved operations to eight wooded acres in a secluded pocket of the city. In this serene location, clients participate in individual and group counseling, relapse prevention and life-skills training under the guidance of a professionally trained staff.
Today, Samaritan House provides seventeen (16) halfway house beds for adult males and nine (9) transitional beds. In Fall 2019, the Samaritan Center, a connected residence hall, will provide 16 additional beds, offering a total of 32 treatement slots for those in need. Stays in the transitional house are longer term, from six to eight months, with clients comprised of graduates of the halfway house that have achieved at least 90 days of sobriety. Samaritan House facilities also include basketball and volleyball courts, picnic tables, gardens, recreational room, and a large outdoor pavilion, all of which encourage activity and fellowship and help build an addiction-free community.
