Increased Precautions We're Taking in Response to the Coronavirus
As updates on the impact of the coronavirus continue to be released, we want to take a moment to inform you of the heightened preventative measures we have put in place at Wilmington Treatment Center to keep our patients, their families, and our employees safe. All efforts are guided by and in adherence to the recommendations distributed by the CDC.

Please note that for the safety of our patients, their families, and our staff, on-site visitation is no longer allowed at Wilmington Treatment Center.

  • This restriction has been implemented in compliance with updated corporate and state regulations to further reduce the risks associated with COVID-19.
  • We are offering visitation through telehealth services so that our patients can remain connected to their loved ones.
  • Alternate methods of communication for other services are being vetted and may be offered when deemed clinically appropriate.

For specific information regarding these changes and limitations, please contact us directly.

CDC updates are consistently monitored to ensure that all guidance followed is based on the latest information released.

  • All staff has received infection prevention and control training.
  • Thorough disinfection and hygiene guidance has been provided.
  • Patient care supplies such as masks and hand sanitizer are being monitored and utilized.
  • Temperature and symptom screening protocols are in place for all patients and staff.
  • Social distancing strategies have been implemented to ensure that patients and staff maintain proper distance from one another at all times.
  • Cleaning service contracts have been reviewed for additional support.
  • Personal protective equipment items are routinely checked to ensure proper and secure storage.
  • CDC informational posters are on display to provide important reminders on proper infection prevention procedures.
  • We are in communication with our local health department to receive important community-specific updates.

The safety of our patients, their families, and our employees is our top priority, and we will remain steadfast in our efforts to reduce any risk associated with COVID-19.

The CDC has provided a list of easy tips that can help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then immediately dispose of the tissue.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

At Wilmington Treatment Center, we recognize that recovery is a lifelong journey. For our patients, that journey often begins with inpatient rehabilitation, partial hospitalization, or intensive outpatient care, but the journey does not end when a patient is discharged.

When you complete treatment at Wilmington, you will join a community of alumni who are committed to lifelong sobriety. The Wilmington Treatment Center Alumni Association is dedicated to helping patients make the transition from treatment to the recovery community and to support all patients, family and friends in their ongoing recovery. Our alumni program includes a number of components, including the following:

Annual Alumni Picnic: Each September, alumni, family, and friends all gather to celebrate our progress towards recovery. This is a time for individuals to reconnect with each other and reestablish contact with the place where many of their recovery journeys began.

Facebook: Wilmington alumni are scattered across the country, so our Facebook page is a place where alumni far and near can remain connected with each other and the goings-on at Wilmington. Our Facebook page, updated daily, provides a common forum for alumni to gather and discuss their treatment struggles and victories, thoughts about recovery, and even the occasional funny picture they found online. We also operate an alumni-only private Facebook group for alumni to seek confidential support from each other and share their setbacks and successes in a more intimate space.

WTC Monthly Newsletter: In addition to our annual picnic and Facebook presence, Wilmington publishes a monthly newsletter that provides updated information on recovery issues and changes at Wilmington.

Contact Program: We recognize that transitioning out of treatment can be a difficult process, so we have designed the contact program to make patients’ transitions easier. Losing the structured treatment environment, losing connections with others who are committed to recovery, and returning to an often-stressful world can all feel like overwhelming challenges to overcome, but the caring staff at Wilmington’s alumni association are dedicated to helping each person face and overcome the challenges that can come during the initial few weeks after treatment ends.

With the help of Wilmington Treatment Center’s Alumni Association, the end of treatment is only the beginning of a life free from the grip of substance abuse.

Going to Wilmington was the greatest decision I ever made. The encouragement I received will never be forgotten and I'm proud to say that I am sober today!
