The Wilmington Treatment Center will open the door to healthy, sober living for addicted individuals and their families by providing the highest standard of care in an environment that is focused on promoting recovery.

Our Mission

In accordance with our vision statement, it is the mission and responsibility of all employees of Wilmington Treatment Center to provide excellent treatment to addicted individuals and their families in an atmosphere governed by respect for all.

With integrity as our moral compass, we are accountable to our patients for excellent treatment, including medical/psychiatric management, supportive confrontation, sharing of feelings, and reality orientation. We are also accountable to all stakeholders for the same excellence in all relationships and transactions.

Our Philosophy

At Wilmington Treatment Center, our goal is to provide a superior treatment experience to adult men and women who have been struggling with substance abuse, chemical dependency, and certain co-occurring mental health disorders. Our approach to treatment is based upon our understanding that addiction is a chronic progressive disease that is best treated via a complete continuum of comprehensive services.

At Wilmington Treatment Center, we are dedicated to ensuring that each patient receives a personalized treatment plan that identifies and addresses his or her unique needs, strengths, and treatment goals. We believe in a patient-focused approach to treatment, we place great value on developing a strong alliance between patients and the professionals with whom they work, and we are dedicated to incorporating evidence-based, research-supported therapies and techniques in a manner that is best suited to meeting our patients’ treatment objectives.

Treatment at Wilmington Treatment Center is based on the principles and practices of the 12-Step recovery model as well as best practice modalities, with a focus on personal growth and recovery. We understand that treatment is just one step along the path of lifelong recovery, and we endeavor to help our patients develop the skills and strategies that will empower them to continue the progress that they make during their time with us.

Each person who chooses to heal at Wilmington Treatment Center can expect to be valued as a unique individual who is worthy of the best care that we can provide. We respect the strengths and experiences of each patient, we are honored that they have chosen our program to begin their recovery, and we are committed to providing all care in an atmosphere of the utmost dignity and respect.

Wilmington Treatment Center strives to provide the highest quality of care available to our patients. Our goal is to restore each individual to a healthier, happier, more productive life, free from destructive behaviors and dependence on addictive chemicals.

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!
