A Helping Hand of Wilmington: We opened our doors in 2007 and have helped thousands of people in the years since. We are family owned and operated with offices in Wilmington and Leland.

"Successful course! All very polite! I recommend a helping hand of wilmington substance abuse services"

"I enjoy and find SAIOP very helpful. I find that hearing other people's stories that are older make me re-evaluate my life and decisions that I make towards my recovery. I really like the class I am in with Stephanie and she is a very positive person to learn from in her own struggles and in new ways to cope that she teaches."


We want to be your clinical home. That is why we offer a continuum of care for the entire family so that whatever your need might be at any given time in your life, we can be there for you. You may come and go but we will always be here when you need us!
