The Tree Story

Our logo represents our journey of recovery. Behind Avery Road Treatment Center is a tree that has stood as long as the program. At some point it became a tradition to throw your shoes in the tree to represent leaving the past behind and walking forward on a new path and a new attitude.


This tree represents a turning point for many in recovery.
Strengthening the roots of recovery.

Tree of Hope now has a TV show, Road to Recovery, on Montgomery County TV (Channel 16) that airs on Tuesdays at 9pm. Our Director of Outreach, James Sutton, is our host reporting all things recovery.  We will embed and stream videos on our Road to Recovery Page as episodes air.  Check us out!

Provider Town Hall for Peers

Due to the pandemic, Tree of Hope hosts a monthly town hall meeting bringing together Providers and Peers from across the State.  Providers attend to inform the public on the services they provide, their protocols, how to gain access to their services and bed availability.  Peers attend to learn about available resources, to learn about admission processes and to form relationships with providers and peers.  Everyone on or who has been on our call is a part of a listserv that Peers use to make requests for services for their recoverees.  This gives them the ability to find services in real time with a direct connection to the Providers.  If you want to be added to the listserv, you must attend the town hall to make the request. We meet the second Thursday of each month on Zoom at 1pm, details below. We currently have 344 subscribed members.

Southern Region Town Halls

We are organizing the Peers in the Southern Region of Maryland. This region includes Montgomery, Prince Georges, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s Counties.  The purpose of this group is to allow Peers from the region to join forces in advocacy to remove barriers for their recovery community. We are in early stages, and we would like to create committees for each region. Right now, we have formed cross county committees to include:


Stigma Committee


The Anti-Stigma committee strives to reduce the stigma associated with addiction and put a positive face on recovery.
