On the second page, a list of substance abuse resources in the area has been provided. Hofmann said this is a growing project and if a provider is interested in being added to the list to contact him at the office.

Substance abuse resources on the list include: Dr. Eric Ceganek with the Suboxone Treatment Center, Chesapeake Treatment Svcs Medication Assisted Treatment, Community Behavioral Health, Queen Anne’s County Health Department Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, Bridges Behavioral Health and Wellness, Dr. Robert Schreiber, Corsica River Mental Health, Anne Arundel Counseling, and Dr. Joel Wilkerson.
