BALTIMORE, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery Behavioral Health, Inc., a leading nationwide provider of behavioral health services, announced the opening of a new facility today in Crownsville, MD, devoted exclusively to the treatment of mental health.
Discovery's new facility will feature two residences for evidence-based treatment. The residences are part of the Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program, serving adults 18 years and older with mental health illnesses, including trauma, anxiety, depression, self-harm, and bipolar disorder. Treatment programs are short term, generally running for 30-60 days and are gender-inclusive with an interactive community atmosphere where patients maintain a sense of independence, responsibility, and accountability.
"Mental health issues are becoming more common. There is a great need for programs like these that address behavioral health in a holistic and individualized way," said John Peloquin, President and CEO of Discovery Behavioral Health, Inc.
A 2018 study published by the National Institute of Mental Health found that nearly 1 in 5 U.S. adults are living with a mental illness. Likewise, young adults aged 18–25 years old had the highest prevalence of mental illness compared to adults age 25 and older.
"These comprehensive programs have a low patient-to-staff ratio allowing patients to get the individual attention they need while still having opportunities to engage with others. The treatment plans incorporate the patient's family and/or support system and their discharge planning begins on day one," said Peloquin.
The Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program will provide a personalized treatment plan, where patients can recover in a real-life setting. Clinicians on site will help patients to engage in treatment methods such as trauma-informed cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy, and more.
"Too often, behavioral health disorders are overlooked and unchecked with little resources available for those who desperately need them," said Peloquin. Discovery Behavioral Health is creating a safe haven for patients to find solace and take that difficult first step to embark on their recovery process that will eventually lead to a restored quality of life.

Gold prices are closed the week 1.1% lower after plunging nearly 2.6% the week earlier. A new stimulus plan unveiled by President-elect Joe Biden may provide a boost to gold investors. Fundamental analysis: All eyes on stimulus President-elect unveiled his much-anticipated $1.9 trillion stimulus plan two days ago. The plan includes higher-than-expected stimulus checks, and bigger support for the unemployed, small businesses, states, and local governments. The new stimulus plan is expected to yield a downward pressure on the U.S. dollar but also support for gold prices. “Bouts of dollar strength and the uptick in U.S. yields have triggered short-term corrections,” said Standard Chartered Analyst Suki Cooper. “The gold market is caught between longer-term buying on the back of rising inflation expectations given stimulus measures, but selling as the dollar has bounced and concern over QE tapering materialised.” However, analysts are looking surprised by the short-term resilience of the U.S. dollar. “The Biden administration should support a much more expansive spending agenda than before. “But it seems like the stubborn short-term resilience of the dollar and concern for even higher yields is triggering steady liquidation in gold,” said Tai Wong, head of base and precious metals derivatives trading at BMO.
