Recovery: The Mid-Shore’s New Opioid Treatment Center After Year One


Dr. David Hill has been behind some remarkable businesses on the Mid-Shore, including William Hill Manor and Easton Bank and Trust, but nothing could prepare him for starting the Mid-Shore’s first heroin treatment center in Easton last year.

But with the help of Melissa Bishop, an expert on opioid treatment programs, Dave, along with his son Chad, took an unprecedented risk in investing the unfortunate but very real and growing new market for opioid addiction.

After Chesapeake Treatment Center’s first year of operations, the Spy asked Dr. Hill and Ms. Bishop to sit down with us to discuss what they have learned about addiction on the Eastern Shore, the more than 500 individuals currently getting help, and the treatment center’s plans to expand to Salisbury and possibly Ocean City in the near future.

    Excellent interview about the progress of a critical resource in our community’s fight against addiction and its ravages to not only to those affected but their loved ones, and to our law enforcement, health care and social service providers and our overall quality of life. Dr. Hill is right — “we all know someone” — and it’s important that those someones who want help and are ready to accept it get access to this kind of holistic treatment and care that can help them change their lives. There are many other resources as well — Nar-a-non, Dri-Dock Recovery in Dorchester, Shore Behavioral Health’s Bridge Clinic (as well as SBH inpatient and outpatient programs), the Episcopal Diocese’ Recovery Ministry and Mariah’s Mission Fund (which offers support groups) to name just a few. Thanks, Spy, for sharing this important information.
