Long Term Recovery


the new Healing Place constructionTrillium Health Resources plans to bring innovative, peer-based, recovery-oriented services to homeless and underserved individuals in eastern North Carolina.  Although almost 80,000 individuals in eastern North Carolina have an alcohol or other drug addiction, there are currently zero long-term residential facilities for substance use disorders in our region.

The Healing Place of New Hanover County will incorporate principals from The Healing Place that operates in Kentucky. The Healing Place costs less per day than the cost of an emergency room visit or incarceration, at no charge to the individual. National rates of recovery vary from 40-60%i , but graduates from The Healing Place program maintain a recovery rate of 70% one year after completion.

The Healing Place provides underserved adults who live with alcohol and other drug addictions with a program to restore them to a healthy life through the following offerings:

  • Overnight emergency shelter
  • Non-medical withdrawal management
  • Long-term, 12-step based residential peer-run recovery program

Trillium’s responsibility is to connect individuals and families to the help they need when they need it. As part of that responsibility, Trillium is always looking for ways in which we can invest in our communities. The Healing Place is another example of Trillium taking additional steps to help improve the communities in which we operate.

Trillium has partnered with New Hanover County to oversee the development of new The Healing Place site in Wilmington. The facility, with 200 beds (100 for men and 100 for women), will open in January 2023. withdrawal management services will start in March 2023.
