Welcome to Walden Behavioral Health

Walden is a not-for profit behavioral health organization with deep roots in Southern Maryland’s St. Mary’s, Charles, Calvert and Prince George’s counties. Through our range of crisis intervention, advocacy, counseling, psychiatric/mental health therapy, outpatient and residential services for drug and alcohol/addiction treatment and recovery community centers, we engage daily in our mission to contribute to the well being of the Southern Maryland community by providing a comprehensive array of crisis, behavioral health, trauma and recovery services.

At our facilities (Hope Place in Lexington Park, Anchor in Charlotte Hall, our St. Andrew’s Church Road-California, Waldorf and Prince Frederick offices, our Beacon of Hope and Cove/D.F.Z. Recovery Community Centers and Compass and North Star Half-Way Houses), we offer a variety of treatment and recovery support services.  Outpatient services offer a variety of levels of treatment care for adolescents and adults, including mental health, substance misuse and crisis assessment, psychiatric, counseling, education, general outpatient and intensive outpatient, and continuing care services. Our residential drug and alcohol treatment services for adults include Anchor Treatment Center’s medically monitored detoxification and stabilization services, intermediate residential care, extended care and long term residential services (North Star.)   Compass House is home to our half way house program for men who are seeking to stabilize recovery related to substance use disorder.  Recovery suport services for adults are provided via our Beacon of Hope Recovery Community Center in Lexington Park, open to the public, and at The Cove/D.F.Z. for youth ages 12-17; these services are largely facilitated by peer support specialists acting as Recovery Coaches.  Recovery support is provided at no cost.
