That's right, folks! Soon we'll be doing it all out of our new location, on the shores of the beautiful Potomac River in Cabin John, MD! That's right-- closer to DC, VA and all our Bethesda people. We are building the place out now, and expect to be in there beginning of December!

Hand drilling at our teepee village in nearby Hedgesville, WV-- it's the indigenous way to start a fire! Kids in the Potomac Pathways First Step IOP (intensive outpatient program) get awesome outdoor adventure opportunities on the weekends!

It's going to be an amazing trip-- with a full staff from Potomac Pathways, a crew of clean & sober peer mentors, and a journey that takes us from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon right on down to the Colorado River!
