A Letter from our Executive Director, Bernard Gyebi-Foster

On behalf of the management and staff of Tuerk House, Inc., I am pleased to take this opportunity to welcome you to our website. Our mission is to transforms lives by providing help and hope for enduring recovery to individuals, families and communities in the Baltimore metropolitan areas who are struggling with addiction to alcohol and/or drugs.

I recently read an article that expressly explains the Tuerk House “Vision”. The article, called the “Integration of Everything” talks about the integration of substance use treatment, primary care services, and social and vocational services all supported by a high end technology framework. This is the model that truly offers a full continuum of care that leads to long term and life-long recovery. It is a model where there really is no “Wrong Door” and those who have been historically underserved receive the same level of service as those who have historically been at the top of the economic ladder. This is the Tuerk House model of care. A model that is client focused which means it entails a robust family support component as well as a strong community engagement component. At Tuerk House we are building a culture of care and accountability. This applies to our clients as well as the Tuerk House staff.
In this era of computers, tablets, and smart devices we often forget the core component of any successful organization. That component is the people. The Tuerk House management, clinical and medical teams are second to none. They are highly skilled and dedicated to the Tuerk House clients. They have been empowered to provide the quality care our clients deserve with a minimum of administrative burdens or clinical restrictions. We simply have asked them to focus on their clients, while we handle the administration.

In closing, our dedicated team of health management professionals is poised to deliver an integrated level of care that encompasses all aspects of recovery. This integrated model allows us to deliver advanced customized healthcare solutions to all of our clients. Take a tour of our website. It is rich with information about us and all the services we offer; as well as the services delivered by our partner providers.

Thanks again for visiting our website and welcome to the “New Tuerk House”.
