Substance Abuse Services Center

For information call 704-336-3067.

We are located at 429 Billingsley Road, Charlotte.


Our detoxification program helps an individual safely stop using alcohol and other drugs.

You can walk in and be admitted 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Our Social Setting Detoxification program provides social support and other non‐medical services to individuals experiencing physical withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs. Our team works with individuals to ready them for either further treatment or discharge to the community.

Residential Treatment Services

Our residential treatment program teaches individuals how to live life without using drugs or alcohol. The length of stay is based on the consumers’ needs and may possibly be as long as four weeks.
The program provides a concentrated and intensive level of care and uses motivational enhancement interventions. Treatment includes family treatment and aftercare.

This is a twenty-four (24) hour a day, seven day a week professionally supervised residential recovery program that provides trained staff who work intensively with adults diagnosed with substance use disorders, with or without a co-occurring psychiatric disorder. We have a 76-bed facility and forty beds are currently assigned to this program.
