Walter B Jones Alcohol & Drug Abuse
The Walter B. Jones Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment Center opened in June 1969 as a 76-bed, short term, residential treatment center. The center serves 33 counties in the Eastern Region and five counties in the South Central Region.
The Center provides treatment for pregnant and postpartum women and their infants and has an on-site maternal unit. The center has a Family Services Department under the supervision of a certified Marriage and Family Therapist, and all substance abuse counselors are either certified by the NC Substance Abuse Professional Certification Board or are working toward certification.
The Center also offers practicums and internships from undergraduate to post doctoral levels and has recently received students from UNC Chapel Hill, ECU, The University of Miami, The University of Ontario, and Campbell College. Several of the Center's professional staff hold adjunct professorship appointments with ECU and the ECU School of Medicine.
The Walter B. Jones ADATC is the only residential treatment center in North Carolina for deaf/hard of hearing substance abusers. The Center provides treatment to citizens from any of North Carolina's 100 counties.
