In 1984 in Towson, Maryland, John E. Davis, PhD; Gloria Uhl; and Charles Whitfield, MD, partnered with the desire to offer the best clinical treatment for addiction and mental health issues. At the time, most facilities simply treated the physical consequences of addictive drug and alcohol use. Our founders were determined to move beyond this approach.
They embraced the concept of educating and training addiction professionals. They also knew that prevention and early intervention are the keys to treating substance use disorders. With this focus, they founded Resource Group, the first and only outpatient program in Maryland at the time.
Thirty five years later, our organization is still an innovative and successful program. We are proud to continue supporting clients the Baltimore area. Above all, we believe in delivering sophisticated and respectful mental health and substance abuse care.
In 2012, our director, Elliott Driscoll, LCSW-C, MBA, guided us through a new phase in our work. We expanded our group of providers. As a result, we treat a diverse client base and a wide range of mental health issues. Our providers now include:
- Clinical Social Workers
- Licensed Professional Counselors
- Addiction Medicine Physicians
- Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners
In 2013, we opened Resource Connect to help those who are in early recovery remain free of substance addiction. The program uses mindfulness and DBT skills to help clients learn coping skills. Consequently, clients improve their recovery and maintain abstinence.
Resource Connect has a license by the State of Maryland and achieved a three-year CARF accreditation, which shows our dedication to satisfaction.
