On October 8th, Governor Larry Hogan announced next steps for the Baltimore Therapeutic Treatment Center, which will be housed within a redeveloped Baltimore City Pretrial Complex. The Department of General Services issued a request for proposal (RFP) to assist in the Center’s development.
The Baltimore Therapeutic Treatment Center is intended to provide mental health and substance use treatment services and care to nonviolent offenders upon entry into the criminal justice system. It is estimated to take 10 years to complete and is estimated to cost over $450 million. Regarding the planned development, Governor Hogan said the following in a press release:
“With the completion of [the Baltimore City Detention Center’s] demolition earlier this year, our administration is excited to begin a new chapter in the planning and design phases of this transformative facility,” said Governor Hogan. “With this step, we are advancing the process of building a state-of-the-art therapeutic treatment center that will help and provide hope to those struggling with addiction.”
