Union House Ribbon Cutting Creates More Opportunity for Success

Salisbury, Md. – November 10, 2021 – With the slice of an oversized pair of scissors, Hudson Behavioral Health’s CEO Leslie Brown reopened Union House, one of several of Hudson’s treatment houses in Salisbury.

“We took the opportunity when COVID hit to renovate the house and make it more of a home for men who had reached this final stage of our program,” said Brown. “Our treatment houses mimic as closely as possible living on their own, but with the recovery support and tools they need to help assure their success.”

On the Lower Shore, some of those tools can only be found with Hudson, which has been helping battle the disease of addiction for more than 40 years. Hudson offers a full continuum of care that begins with detoxification if needed, and up to a 30-day stay on their residential campus, which then continues through two more levels of housing.

Hudson’s staff includes a Nurse Practitioner and a licensed Mental Health Therapist, services not always found with other providers. In addition, they offer pet therapy, and soon, equine therapy. In early 2022 they plan to launch a GED (general educational development) program which will help add to the uniqueness of Hudson’s housing program.

“The lack of a high school diploma is often a barrier to finding better-paying work, which in turn can keep some people in addiction,” said Brown. “Earning a GED can be life-changing in many ways.”

Union House is a part of Hudson’s continuum of care that offers 5 treatment houses in Maryland, as well as 2 sober living homes in Delaware, on top of their residential campus in Salisbury. If you or someone you care about needs information about recovery on the Eastern Shore, visit
