National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month is Underway in Wilmington

By Michelle Bliss

08-31-10 – Wilmington Treatment Center is hosting a celebration today for National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.

Today's event includes a public press conference to discuss the prevalence of addiction in the military. There will also be a ribbon-cutting for the new Charles S. Sharp Clinical Building.

Wilmington Treatment Center's Marketing Director Mandy Anderson-Ille says the new building will separate mental health services from recreational areas.

"In the room that you would maybe do all your counseling in, maybe you told your life story, was also the room where you watched TV in at night. So, there was no real break for the patient to get away from where they processed all their emotions for the day."

General Barry McCaffrey, the former U.S. Director of National Drug Control Policy, will attend the event.
