New outpatient opioid treatment facility to open in Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Reflections of Hope LLP is an upcoming outpatient opioid treatment program where people can receive medical and behavioral treatment for opioid addiction.

On Friday, an open house and a meet and greet were held at the new location on Darlington Avenue beside Coastal Finance Company on Market Street.

The clinic is made up of a medical director and trained addiction nurses who will provide one on one counseling for those suffering from addiction, family counseling services, group therapy sessions and community outreach programs.

Nurses will be able to administer methadone and buprenorphine for those suffering from opioid abuse and addiction.

Program Director Christie Jarrell Smith says this new clinic couldn't come at a better time.

"Unfortunately, everyone is devastated by what is going on with this epidemic and just the rate of overdose and addiction going on right now, so I think you can't have too much help when it comes to treating something like this," Smith said.

To pre-enroll for treatment, call 910-742-5299.
