The newest addition to the Wilmington Treatment Center campus greatly enhances the ability of the organization to treat patients, filling a vital need for this North Carolina community. The combination of a specialized treatment unit and outpatient facilities provides a holistic, continuum of care to maximize the potential for effective addiction treatment.

Phase 1, a 48-bed new treatment unit built on the existing campus, provides a controlled environment for the intense, initial phase of rehabilitation treatment. The two-story, 31,480 square-foot facility allows for male and female populations to each have their own floor. The building features exam rooms, observation rooms, bedrooms, counseling rooms, a dining area, lounge, nurse station and outdoor recreation area. Much-needed staff amenities are also an integral part of the design, including a large conference room and a fitness room for patients and staff. An abundance of windows bathes the natural material interior finishes in sunlight, creating a calming environment and a sense of well-being. 

The Wilmington Treatment Center outpatient campus, comprised of dorms and a Partial Hospitalization Center (PHC), is anything but institutional. Outpatients in this unique program voluntarily live “on campus” in comfortable, stylish dorms that have the feel of high-end student housing and are located just steps from the facility where they receive treatment. Each dorm space features a bedroom, living space, kitchen, laundry area, and bathroom. The two dorm buildings share a well-equipped fitness center and a central outdoor courtyard.

Within a short walk, clients attend classes, dine, and socialize in the 38,900 square-foot PHC, which features a huge, open clubhouse, kitchen and dining areas, therapy rooms, a medical exam room, the med dispensary. Appropriate safety measures are in place, but every effort is made to create a sense of normalcy. The color palette is warm and inviting while clean and straightforward. Entrances are clearly identified through the hierarchy of taller spaces marking their place.
