During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a significant increase of drug overdoses in the United States. Experts attribute the rise or drug overdoses to social isolation, a side effect of recommendations to reduce the spread of this disease.

Mid-Atlantic Recovery Center is prepared to safely treat addiction with procedures, that limit patient/staff exposure, with the availability of tele-counseling for individuals at risk and/or susceptible to contracting COVID-19.

MARC is located at 15 Pratts Run, Waynesboro. More online at
