On Our Own of Howard County: Wellness & Recovery Center

Information provided by: Howard County Local Behavioral Health Authority

On Our Own of Howard County operates a Wellness & Recovery Center at various times on weekdays and weekends and on holidays for county residents who have a behavioral health issue (i.e., mental health or substance abuse disorders.) This is a peer-operated service that provides socialization, advocacy, educational and natural support opportunities for individuals with mental illness. Many of the recipients of mental health services who come to the Wellness & Recovery Center say it is a place to relax and feel comfortable. Members share similar experiences and discuss ways of coping with their illness. Transportation is provided for those individuals who would have a problem getting to the center without it. Contact the Program Director at (410) 772-7905 for further information.
