Anuvia is constantly improving its services for the Hispanic/Latino community, by offering assessments, treatment programs and education specially designed to meet the needs of the Latin American population of Charlotte/Mecklenburg.  The Latino staff is fully bilingual and provides all services in Spanish in an effort to remove the language barrier.

Our staff works with other professionals, employers, school personnel, clergy, courts, and law enforcement in offering consultation and direction regarding specific cases.

Clients are expected to attend 12-step meetings as a part of their treatment.  We believe this helps the recovering person build a supportive network during their sobriety.  Anuvia also provides a place for many Charlotte-Mecklenburg 12-step groups in Spanish and English during the week, making them accessible to our clients.

Anuvia counselors are ready to help individuals, families, and employers address substance abuse and   dependency, motivate those affected to seek help, and provide education to all interested parties.
