Ride for Recovery Benefits Maryville Addiction Treatment Center
WILLIAMSTOWN, NJ (May 10, 2017) – More than 80 motorcyclists revved their engines and rode for a cause in the 5th Annual Motorcycle Ride for Recovery and Bike Show Sunday, May 7th. The route took them from West Collingswood Heights to Williamstown, where riders parked at Maryville Residential and enjoyed a barbeque, 50/50 and basket raffle attended by over 300 people. All proceeds benefit the Peter P. Black IV Scholarship Fund at Maryville Addiction Treatment Center, which helps individuals unable to pay for substance abuse treatment.
“The Ride for Recovery is incredibly important for our clients in South Jersey who are struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders,” said Kendria McWilliams, CEO of Maryville. “Our mission is to help them find health, hope and healing in recovery and to ensure that all those who need treatment have access to it.”
Maryville Addiction Treatment Center Approved as VA Care Provider
WILLIAMSTOWN, NJ (April 5, 2017) – Maryville Addiction Treatment Center is expanding treatment options for South Jersey veterans under a new agreement with the Wilmington VA Medical Center, which adds Maryville to the VA’s Choice provider network.
“This partnership is incredibly important for veterans seeking recovery from substance abuse,” said Kendria McWilliams, CEO of Maryville. “Maryville is dedicated to providing the best possible treatment and linkage to recovery supports. My hope is that through this affiliation with the VA, more of our veterans will have access to the exceptional addiction and co-occurring disorders treatment we offer at Maryville.”
The Veterans Choice Program, established in 2014, allows veterans to receive care from approved providers in their own community when VA services are not available or when VA facilities are a considerable distance away. In 2016, local VA facilities were given the ability to establish local provider agreements with private organizations.
“It is our goal to do all that we can to remove barriers that separate veterans from the care they deserve,” said Robert Callahan, acting director of the Wilmington VA Medical Center. “VA can’t do this alone; it takes an entire community working together.”
