Shelter Housing

Staying on the road to recovery demands more than addiction treatment and mental health support. You also need a place to live to help ensure your efforts aren’t sabotaged. That’s why Next Step Treatment Center in Baltimore, Maryland, supports recovery with shelter housing. They offer free housing on a first-come, first-served basis to patients with a co-occurring diagnosis of chemical dependence and a mental health disorder. If you need food and shelter, don’t wait to apply; simply call the clinic or book an appointment online today.

Shelter Housing Q & A

Why do I need shelter housing?

The team at Next Step Treatment Center offers the intensive care you need to detoxify and recover from your addiction. They provide therapy, teach coping skills, and help you understand what drives your addiction so you can move forward to achieve a productive life.

But your long-term wellness depends on two life-sustaining essentials: food and shelter. Without these basic needs, you can’t focus on recovering, and it’s hard to resist the addictions you’ve worked so hard to overcome.

Next Step Treatment Center  offers shelter housing to give you a safe and supportive environment. You have the chance to live with others who understand what you are going through. When you live in the shelter house, you can continue to regain your wellness while being free from judgment.

Access to a kitchen and food
