Clinical Excellence, Compassionate Care

Doing Great

I was with Wilmington for 28 days and I wanted to let y’all know I’m doing great.  I have nearly 7 months without a drink. I mean this from the bottom of my heart, you did a great job. I never felt more comfortable with you guys there. All of you made a life changing experience for me. I believe that WTC is absolutely the place to be if you want to get well.
