Discover Yourself

Building a better life free from drugs and alcohol or mental health issues can seem impossible if you don’t know where to begin. You might even fear that your situation is broken beyond repair. 

But no matter how bad things may seem, there is hope. Young adults struggling with addiction and mental health challenges can find a new sense of purpose, happiness, and belonging in recovery at Momentum Recovery in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Gender-Specific Addiction & Mental Health Treatment

Drug and alcohol abuse or mental health challenges can cause a young adult to feel like they’ve drifted off course before they ever really found their way in life. Our intimate, gender-segregated addiction and mental health treatment programs help young adults find a brighter future on the horizon — and feel confident they can get there.
Clients are transformed by our unique four-phase approach, which helps them center themselves, discover the joy in life, learn life skills, and experience the value of a healthy, supportive community.

Momentum is an incredible addition to Wilmington’s vibrant recovery community. I’ve seen so many individuals have success through this program and the team provides creative wraparound care. If a family member were struggling with addiction, this would be the first place I would send them.
