Discover Yourself

Building a better life free from drugs and alcohol 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 can find a new sense of purpose, happiness, and belonging in addiction recovery at Momentum Recovery in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Gender-Specific Addiction & Mental Health Treatment

Drug and alcohol abuse 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 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.
