You can be the solution.

The tragedies of substance abuse and addiction affect people without regard to age, race, religion or socio-economic status, but people without financial resources are often left to struggle because they can't access professional help. That's where Anuvia fits in. With the help of funding partners and donors, Anuvia strives to provide an array of high-quality services to uninsured and low-income individuals.

Be a part of the solution. You might not have been able to help a friend or family member when they were struggling, but you can help someone who is eager to change right now. Click here to donate to Anuvia. Programs that need your help are:

  • treatment services for adolescents
  • prevention programming for youths
  • a sliding-fee scale for people with no financial resources
  • alcohol- and drug-free events for the recovery community

Anuvia promotes wellness in our community by providing compassionate treatment and prevention services of the highest quality to impact the disease of addiction.

About Anuvia

Anuvia Prevention & Recovery Center is a nonprofit serving Charlotte and Mecklenburg County with alcohol and drug education, prevention, assessment and treatment services. The agency is more than 50 years old and has been known as The Chemical Dependency Center, The Randolph Clinic and the Charlotte Council on Alcoholism. Roughly 20,000 people are impacted by Anuvia's services each year, from children and teens to parents and educators to people with court-related problems and people who have an alcohol or drug dependency.

Substance abuse services include a wide array of evidence-based prevention and awareness programs designed for targeted populations, DWI and court services, programs for Spanish-speaking individuals, 20- and 40-hour outpatient treatment programs, intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) for adolescents and adults and a dual-diagnosis treatment program (SACOT). Assessments of drug and alcohol use are provided at multiple locations in the Charlotte area and are used to determine the appropriate level of care for people diagnosed with a substance use disorder.

Anuvia enjoys an active Alumni Association that plans alcohol-free and drug-free activities and events, and the agency is home to a number of 12-step groups, including Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, that meet throughout the week. Anuvia is committed to providing the resources and tools needed for people to avoid alcohol and drug abuse and maintain long-term abstinence and recovery.

Anuvia is accredited by CARF, a member of the National Council on Alcoholism and an approved provider for Mecklenburg County Health & Human Services, Medicaid and most insurance companies. Prevention specialists and treatment counselors at Anuvia are highly trained and credentialed.

The Adolescent Center serves youths 12 to 17 years of age who are interested in or need an alcohol and drug use assessment or treatment. Family services are also provided. Please call (704) 376-7447 to get office hours or find out more information.

I just can\'t thank you and your program enough for hanging in there with Zan and advising him and us on taking charge of his life and ours.  I am such a supporter of your program and especially Rick and Pat.  Just thinking of last Christmas -- whew -- not going there again hopefully.
