About Us
Helping Individuals Find a Path to Healthier Living

Our Mission: 

We are dedicated to improving the lives of individuals, who are struggling with addiction and/or mental health, by providing care and support through treatment and assistance of an individual’s desire for long term recovery with the goal of a better quality of life for themselves, their families, and the community as a whole.

Our Founding Vision:

When Launch Pad Wellness was founded, our vision was to create an environment where individuals could find the assistance & solutions needed to successfully embrace recovery and launch forward onto a new path of their own.

 Creating Launch Pad Wellness was initially inspired from the need for Launch Pad Structured Living, recovery housing in Wilmington & Myrtle Beach, members to be able to have clinical care with continuity: IOP Groups, OP Groups, Individual Counseling & Med Management, at one location.   An individual entering recovery had to attend clinical groups at one location, individual counseling at another, and search for a separate med management provider. This was especially hard, while trying to simply navigate life in recovery. As you can imagine! Thus, Launch Pad Wellness was founded for Launch Pad members to receive treatment services and bridge the gap between housing services and clinical care.  Research shows, committing to both, recovery housing and clinical services, is an individual's best chance of success. Launch Pad Wellness has continued to be a space for Launch Pad members, even as we grew to serve others in our community.  Launch Pad Structured Living is now Launch Pad Wellness' sister facility here in the community.  We hold space for every individual seeking substance abuse outpatient treatment here in our community, and are proud to be offering services in person versus virtual. 

Providing Mental Health Services:

While forging our path in addiction recovery services, we were overwhelmed by the apparent increasing need for mental health services within our community. As we were well staffed and equipped, we decidedly opened our doors to foster a healing environment for individuals seeking only mental health services. Launch Pad Wellness offers an array of clinical services to individuals seeking help.

We, Launch Pad Wellness, are committed to providing comprehensive therapeutic services to meet the needs of the individuals we serve in our community. 

DWI Assessments & Counseling Services: 

DWI Assessments and Counseling Services came on board in 2020, when we realized the need for DWI services in our community. We are proud to house DWI Assessments and Counseling in the same location as Launch Pad Wellness as to provide an ease for clients to have all their services in one location. 

Continuity & Continuum of Care:

Our staff operates as a team for every individual walking through our doors. While our clients may meet with one of our counselors/therapist, they are truly provided with the feedback and expertise of all of our counselors. We have a family type atmosphere because we are family. As we grew, we sought out each new hire to truly be the perfect fit to carry on our mission and vision for our clients. As such, all our staff have been employed here for years. We have weekly treatment planning to ensure each client is being provided with the best possible care, utilizing best practice and evidence-based modalities for their individual needs. 

Our goals are to  provide a comfortable, safe, and professional environment for both patients and staff; to foster a high level of patient dignity relating to their primary needs and story, and provide successful treatment utilizing best practice  and evidence based modalities to help patients access their innate healing resources.

We Are Proud to Offer the Following Services to our Community

Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Treatment, Vivitrol Injections, Medication Management, Individual Therapy for Substance Use and Mental Health, & Outpatient Aftercare Groups.  Services are provided by the following licensed professionals: Psychiatrist, FNP-BC, LCAS, LCMHC, LCSW, and CADC.

What to Expect About Our Process: 

Have questions about what to expect as a client at Launch Pad Wellness? 

Here is some basic information to assist in understanding the

intake and treatment process!


Initially, we collect demographic and insurance information. 

It is important for us to verify insurance benefits prior to admission so we can be clear in what your financial responsibility will be based on your insurance benefits. 

This would also be a time we would discuss any copays, self-pay responsibilities, or self-pay rates.  Once we have collected this information and discussed we will schedule an intake appointment with one of our master’s level clinicians. 

This appointment typically takes about an hour and a half and begins with signing releases of information, consents for treatment, and other related policies. 

Next, the client meets with the clinician to complete their bio-psycho-social assessment and then recommendations for the most appropriate level of care are discussed between the client and clinician.  Treatment can then begin immediately. 


We view the client as a whole and work to ensure each client has support in all areas of their lives (this can include referring clients for primary care, nutritional support, dental care, supportive housing, DWI services, or other specialty mental health care). 

Check out our Services Page to see what we have to offer!  

We are proud to be in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, NC State Health Plan (Clear Pricing Project Provider), United Healthcare, Tricare, and NC Medicaid. 

We bill out-of-network for all other insurances. 

We also offer a bundled weekly self-pay rate for IOP and aftercare and can

sometimes work on a sliding scale for self-pay as well. 

Please contact us to discuss further.
