MISSION: To partner with individuals and families to improve behavioral health through recovery-oriented services.

Arundel Lodge is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that works toward a world where behavioral health disorders are not a limit to achieving a meaningful life in the community.

One in four Americans will experience a behavioral health disorder in any given year regardless of age, race, religion, gender or economic status. Behavioral health disorders can range from depression and anxiety to bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and much in between.

At Arundel Lodge we help men, women, children and adolescents living with behavioral health disorders maintain their dignity and enter into the process of recovery. We support individuals in their quest to stay healthy, find jobs, participate in their community, locate appropriate resources, and enjoy life. Most of all, at Arundel Lodge, we provide a place where individuals can feel welcomed, empowered, and trusted to make their own decisions.

 Thank you for the wonderful care you give M. and all the other clients at Arundel Lodge. You are such a blessing to so many families – because of you we all sleep better at night knowing our loved ones are in good hands. -Veronica B.

Arundel Lodge Receives a Fundraising Challenge!

Stephen & Bev

Beverly and Stephen Marcus of Edgewater, MD have offered Arundel Lodge Behavioral Health a matching donation of $50,000 for funds raised for a Children and Adolescents Behavioral Health Center to be created at Arundel Lodge’s main campus. The new Children and Adolescents Behavioral Health Center will fill a longstanding void in Anne Arundel County for treatment to this under-served population and will include two play therapy rooms.

I was excited to learn of plans by Mike Drummond, Executive Director of Arundel Lodge, to open a Children and Adolescents Center,” says Beverly. “I was impressed by Mike’s passion, achievements, and ability to provide innovative services. I knew I wanted to contribute to the clinic’s establishment and success.

Beverly and Stephen Marcus kicked off the Arundel Lodge matching gift challenge with a fundraiser at their beautiful home on the South River.

Arundel Lodge Merges with First Step Recovery Center

According to the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS), about 45% of Americans seeking substance use disorder treatment have been diagnosed as having a co-occurring mental and substance use disorder. Conversely, people diagnosed with a mental health disorder are more likely to experience a problem with substance use. As a result, Arundel Lodge, which provides mental health treatment, has worked closely over the years with First Step Recovery Center which provides substance use treatment.

Recently, Arundel Lodge and First Step Recovery Center took their partnership to the next level and formalized plans for a merger, a move which aligns with the federal government’s plans for mental and behavioral health integration. Final details are being worked out.
