Treatment & Support

Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

The goal of our crisis and trauma services is to assist individuals and families in crisis to safely stabilize their crisis situation. For some, this may simply involve contacting the hotline and speaking with a crisis aide whenever there is a need. In other situations, we may suggest the caller come in to speak with a counselor.

Our services are available to anyone with any type of crisis in St. Mary’s County. We offer crisis counseling and advocacy services for children, adolescents and adults impacted by:

  • Domestic violence
  • Rape Crisis

Crisis and Trauma Services can be accessed two way:

  • Call our 24 hour hotline on 301-863-6661 
  • Same day walk in access at our Hope Place office in Lexington Park 
  • Connect with one of our collaborative partners

Walden offers a full spectrum of services including services for offenders.  These include both Abuser Intervention Program (AIP) and Anger Management services.

For situations in which a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking is in an unsafe situation, emergency services and outreach accompaniment support are initiated. This may involve, but not be limited to, safety planning, short-term emergency sheltering, accompaniment to forensic exams, facilitation of access to protective orders, and referral to additional Walden or community partner services.
