Wilmington Treatment Center Included in Newsweek’s List of Top 10 Addiction Treatment Centers in North Carolina

WILMINGTON, N.C. (September 01, 2020) – Wilmington Treatment Center is honored to have been included in Newsweek’s recently released list of the top addiction treatment centers in North Carolina.

Wilmington Treatment Center earned sixth place in the Newsweek ranking, which puts the center in the top 10% of the state’s addiction treatment facilities.

“Being recognized for our ability to serve individuals and families in need is a significant honor for our facility and a well-deserved acknowledgment of the tremendous effort put forth by each member of our team,” said Wilmington Treatment Center CEO Robert Pitts, LCSW, MSW, MBA.

The Newsweek rankings reflect the quality of care each facility provides, its reputation, and its adherence to accreditation standards. The assessment process included surveys of therapists, counselors, doctors, administrators, and other healthcare professionals.

“Knowing that our ranking was determined in part by the input of our peers makes this honor particularly special,” Mr. Pitts said. “I’m proud that others in our profession have identified Wilmington Treatment Center as a place where patients and their families can receive the superior care they deserve.”

Newsweek partnered with global data research firm Statista, Inc. to evaluate addiction treatment facilities in North Carolina and 19 other states. The states that were selected for assessment have the highest number of addiction treatment centers as determined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
