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 Cardinal Innovations Healthcare, 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.
