Pinelands will offer MAP’s peer services to all clients who complete their residential and outpatient programs.

In addition to supporting all Pinelands clients, MAP’s peer specialists will also conduct on-going support sessions with family members involved in patients’ treatment.

“Our patients are surrounded by a team of experts to lead them through stabilization and treatment,” said Christian Losch, CEO of Pinelands. “The MAP program is part of our continuum of care to extend this network to alumni and their families, with the goal of lifelong recovery. We will also receive outcomes data to fuel continuous quality improvement in our clinical programs.”
