What We Offer

Ready to take back your life from substance use?

Suboxone Clinic

Suboxone Clinic

We believe that, while medication is not right for every patient, it is a powerful tool for healing from opioid addiction and substance use disorder. If you are sick and tired of depending on opioids to get through the day, our Suboxone clinic is here to help. At our Wrightsville Beach Suboxone clinic, we provide safe and convenient medication-assisted treatment using a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone to help you move forward from opioid addiction. Led under the guidance of our experienced and caring staff, our Suboxone clinic can help you get to a place where you are ready to take the next step in your substance use treatment.
Make the leap: call us for an initial appointment today!!


Sublocade Treatment

Medication along with treatment is a powerful tool aiding in healing from opioid addiction and substance use disorder. Sublocade is the first-ever FDA-approved buprenorphine injection for moderate to severe opioid use disorder. Because Sublocade is part of a controlled drug program administered by the FDA, this novel treatment is only available through qualified healthcare providers and clinics like Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center. If you are tired of taking daily medication for opioid use disorder, make an appointment with us to discuss whether Sublocade might be a good option for you.

Naltrexone Treatment

Naltrexone Treatment

Naltrexone treatment has been proven to help people suffering from either opioid use disorder or alcohol use disorder. It is non-addictive and works by blocking the euphoric sensations associated with substance abuse, therefore reducing cravings. Naltrexone treatment has been a helpful tool in keeping people engaged in recovery programs. The medication is most effective when given under the supervision of expert physicians like at Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center. If you think this could be a viable asset to your recovery, make an appointment with us to start the process.


Individual Therapy

Individual therapy under the guidance of a licensed therapist is an integral part of any treatment plan for substance use and mental health disorders. We believe individual therapy is just as valuable to recovery as medications which is why we offer therapy in addition to (rather than in place of) medication-assisted treatment. Using a combination of proven substance use treatments like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and motivational interviewing, the team at Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center is excited to guide you through the process of exploring your emotional and behavioral health in your recovery. Contact us today to learn more about options for individual therapy.


Group Therapy

Making connections with others is what gives life meaning. Here at Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center, we facilitate connections within the recovery community through our confidential group sessions, giving you the opportunity to connect with others who have similar life experiences without the fear of compromising your privacy. Our treatment team may recommend group therapy sessions in addition to or in place of individual sessions depending on your treatment goals and where you are in your recovery. These sessions will allow you to open up about your experiences with substance use and mental health disorders knowing that our kind and caring staff will never judge you. We’re here to listen. Reach out to learn more about our therapy groups for substance use and/mental health disorders.


Pet Therapy

Did we mention we have a therapy dog onsite? Meet Sawyer Lee, our resident doggie therapist. He is a 3 year-old Chihuahua who is ready to support you through your substance use/mental health treatment with his sloppy kisses and signature grins. We believe that animals are one of the best anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs there is! Make an appointment at our Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center for a chance to meet this sweet, smiling pup in person.

About Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center

Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center was founded by a doctor, therapist, and nurse with decades of experience in substance use and mental health treatment. After watching too many patients be treated like a diagnosis rather than a person, they created Wrightsville Beach Counseling Center, a suboxone clinic and therapy practice as a haven for those affected by substance use/mental health disorders to get the treatment they desperately need.

Our private practice offers safe and effective substance use/mental health treatment without the long waits and red tape of publicly funded clinics. We address the health of our patients as a whole, treating everything from acute opioid withdrawal to signs of medical and dental neglect. Our goal is to provide superior quality of service while helping you or your loved one break free of substance use and mental health issues for good.

We offer both scheduled and walk-in appointments at our conveniently located counseling center and Suboxone clinic. During your first appointment, you will work with our experienced treatment team to develop an individualized plan to improve your physical, mental, and emotional health.
