RALEIGH, N.C. — The Healing Place of Wake County received the green light to open its detox facility in Raleigh for homeless women with addictions.
The unit received its license from the state Department of Health and Human Services on April 21 and opened officially on April 24.
The detox unit is part of the Healing Place’s women’s facility, which opened earlier this year to provide residential treatment and services for homeless women recovering from alcohol and drug addictions.
The detox center is a non-medical facility that provides a safe place for women to regain their sobriety in a round-the-clock, closely monitored environment.
The Healing Place also operates a detox unit at its men’s facility that has treated more than 3,800 men since its inception five years ago, and six in 10 of those men went on to join the center’s long-term program designed to help them reenter society.
