The Maryland Addiction Recover Center, which caused a stir earlier this year when it decided to pursue a second location in Baltimore’s Mount Washington neighborhood, has dropped those plans in favor of staying in Towson.
“It is a little bigger,” Zachary Snitzer, director of business development for MARC, said of the new location the center is pursuing. While the plan for the Mount Washington location was to use the space as a second center in addition to MARC’s primary location on West Road in Towson, the new plan will likely consolidate all of MARC’s services into the new, larger location, said Snitzer.
Although the company faced a large outcry of public opposition to the Mount Washington location, Snitzer would not say whether that played a role in the decision to drop the plan. The company also faced a shortage of parking spaces at the northwest Baltimore City building.
Snitzer said the group found the new Towson location about four weeks ago, around the same time they decided to relinquish their goal for the city location. He expects the new location to open in mid-April.
