CMDS, Inc. -- which stands for Clinic Management and Development Services, Inc. -- was established ten years ago in order to develop, acquire, and/or manage medical clinics focusing on substance abuse treatment, including programs involving residential treatment. Currently, CMDS owns and operates a successful mental health and intensive outpatient program, located in the city of Baltimore.
We recognize that the inner city population of those suffering from addiction usually face more obstacles to recovery than others -- including homelessness, mental illness, criminal convictions, hunger, disease, and a lack of essential support. Accordingly, we partner with organizations that address these additional needs.
A sister organization, New Life Evangelical Baptist Church, provides social and church programs, transportation, and day care for our patients.
Turning Point Clinic is another partner that shares the same vision and goals as CMDS. Turning Point provides methadone and Suboxone treatment for those suffering from opiate addiction.
And New Life Food Pantry, CMDS’ newest partner, provides meals and groceries to patients – plus fresh produce, and other nutritious food courtesy of regularly sponsored community markets. Most of the food available at NLFP’s community markets is donated by the Maryland Food Bank and is given to residents and others in the “food desert” community of East Baltimore where there are no local grocery stores or farmers markets. We also provide milk and juice donated by a local milk producer.
Turning Point and New Life Food Pantry are both nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations.
Most recently, CMDS has been working with Turning Point Clinic to develop a residential treatment facility, which will provide transitional housing for homeless patients.
We provide mental health evaluations and therapy, and access to medical staff who write prescriptions for necessary psycho-active medications. We also provide intensive outpatient treatment for substance abuse patients.
We provide highly customer-centered and results-oriented management services for existing medical clinics, and real estate and business development services for new clinics.
Focusing on the needs of substance abuse providers in particular, CMDS brings to the table state-of-the-art technological solutions (usually involving custom made software for all aspects of clinic administration and management); human resources services; consulting; site acquisition and development; and clinic operation and management.
CMDS, Inc. also owns and operates a successful mental health program and intensive outpatient program in the city of Baltimore.
The professional staff at CMDS is remarkably diverse in all ways - and includes full-time software developers, former real estate executives, policy experts, seasoned IT experts, and former Wall Street and other finance professionals.
