treatment for adults, young adults, adolescents and families. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) as well as the Advisory Board of Jonnie H. McLeod Institute on Addiction at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
When you get to know the Dilworth Center, you soon realize the secret to the success of their patients is the personal experiences many staff members bring to their work. Charles recounts his own.
“I had a life changing experience when I attended treatment in 1982. I decided shortly thereafter that I wanted to work in a treatment program that offered similar experiences to others. My mission is to provide the best possible recovery opportunities to those seeking treatment for addiction. Of course, licenses and certifications always help. But, what is more important is to understand and to have experienced recovery itself either personally or through the lives of friends and family.”
“We believe the best treatment programs are environments in which recovery is supported and encouraged. It’s important to model recovery before you can teach it. If you visit the Dilworth Center, you will probably find me sharing my experience, strength and hope with a newcomer.”
Asked if there was hope he might offer to someone considering seeking treatment, “Everyone has the capacity to experience recovery and so do you. Don’t give up before the miracle happens.” “I believe that Dilworth Center’s treatment team is the most competent and talented group of people with whom I’ve ever worked. It is my privilege to be a part of it. Our patients and their families could not be in better hands.”
