Tuerk House, Inc. is a not-for-profit substance abuse treatment program established in Baltimore, Maryland in 1970. Tuerk House, Inc. provides residential and outpatient treatments and operates four recovery centers:

Tuerk House Main Campus
Nilsson House, a Halfway House for Women
Weisman-Kaplan House, a Halfway House for Men
Howard House, a Halfway House for Men

Each of these four centers is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the nation's predominant standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.

To address the chronic, relapsing nature of alcoholism and addiction, Tuerk House, Inc. also provides on-going Peer Support to those who have graduated from residential and outpatient programs. Participants are never discharged from Peer Support.

Tuerk House, Inc. recognizes that those in recovery face numerous challenges by providing "wraparound" services including job counseling and placement and parenting classes. Close ties are also maintained with other outpatient clinics and halfway houses throughout Baltimore City and Maryland.

Tuerk House, Inc. is one of Baltimore’s key providers of residential and outpatient treatment for those suffering from alcoholism and drug abuse, regardless of their ability to pay.
