Residential Substance Use Treatment in Charlotte, NC

Research shows that individuals who continue to seek treatment post-detox are more likely to stay sober longer and have stronger long-term recovery outcomes. At Freedom Detox & Recovery Center, clients who require additional stabilization beyond the initial detoxification period can extend their stay for inpatient care. In addition to detox/withdrawal management services, our facility in Charlotte, NC, is also licensed to provide residential substance use treatment.
