Amara Wellness is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 5801 Executive Center Drive in Charlotte, North Carolina. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Amara Wellness. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Amara Wellness.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Amara Wellness, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged Adult men, Adult women, Seniors or older adults, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at Amara Wellness have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Amara Wellness. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Amara Wellness can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact Amara Wellness by visiting now.

I go to Amara Wellness and I have had great experiences all around. They are professional and they care about your physical and mental well being. The wait list for one-on-one therapeutic services was only about two weeks. Now I recently started to receive Primary Care as well. Same superb professional service! Highly recommend. Shawn, Caitlyn and Dr Trish are all amazing amazing people! Do not miss appointments as you will be discharged! Understandably so as people are in need of these services. I read the other reviews and everyone should know, “No, they will not refill prescriptions there. They can’t as that is through another agency called Med Assist which you must qualify for and Amara has nothing to do with Med Assist of North Carolina. Also, if you take benzo’s they WILL NOT prescribe or re-prescribe these types of addicting drugs. Duh!!!” Dr G (Giwhala) is on staff and I do not know of any previous issues with regards to this psychiatrist/licensure problems, however, I see a Nurse Practitioner for my mental health needs and she has been very caring and professional. She knows her stuff and makes sure that the prescriptions that we jointly decide on for my mental health fo not interfere with my blood pressure or my sugars - wright gain etc. She checks in with me biweekly to make sure I’m not having any side effects. Most Nurse Practitioners have better one-on-one bed side manners anyway. I highly recommend this office to anyone who needs help. They have art therapy and group therapy, too. The front office staff are caring as well. They fax for free and sometimes offer free lunch coupons at a local restaurant. Frustrating when people write reviews and fail to give accurate information.

My daughter has been going there and they have been great. The area is not the best but with the service we have gotten I will not complain. Dr. G has been a blessing! Nurses and staff have always been good to us!
