Helping People Get Well Since 1969

McLeod Center is proud to announce that we received a grant from Addiction Professionals of North Carolina (APNC) to support our observation of National Recovery Month in September 2019. We’ll be recognizing our theme of “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger” on Wednesday, September 18th at our social for the Charlotte area Alcoholics Anonymous community.

AHA Heart Walk

While McLeod Center’s services primarily address substance use disorder, we recognize that many of our patients suffer from hypertension, various stages of heart disease, or a combination of the two. Team McLeod will be walking in support of the many patients, family members, and friends in our community that are affected by heart disease on September 21, 2019. Support our efforts to make Charlotte a healthier place by helping us to reach our fundraising goal at Team McLeod’s Heart Walk page.

Criminal Justice

Criminal Justice

McLeod Center’s Criminal Justice Department offers a wide variety of services including Drug Education School, Cognitive Behavioral Intervention, DWI assessments and 20/40/90 Hour Services, and Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities.

DWI Services

Have you recently been charged or convicted of a DWI in North Carolina? The first step in the license restoration process is to obtain a DWI assessment by an agency fully licensed in North Carolina as a DWI service provider. The assessment helps to determine what level of substance use education or treatment you will be required to complete to restore your driving privileges. The assessment which is typically about 1 ½ hours includes a review of the individual’s substance use history, a clinical interview, review of driving record, and completion of a structured assessment questionnaire.


In the state of North Carolina, everyone that is charged with a DWI is required to have a recommendation of either education or Substance Use Treatment.

  • Residential Treatment: Length of stay is generally 28 days, but can be tailored to satisfy individual client needs that incorporate education on the disease of addiction with individual, group and family counseling. Residential Treatment may be followed by SAIOP, Aftercare, or referral to an outside agency for long-term sober living environment. The cost of the program may be covered by Area funding, self-pay, and some Insurance companies. We are licensed for 36 bed capacity, and currently manage 24 for capacity.
  • Residential DWI: McLeod Center’s Residential DWI Program is a treatment alternative to incarceration for DWI charges. In consideration of substance use history and legal implications of the client’s DWI, the length of stay may be anywhere from 7 to 30 days. While clients are in the Residential DWI Program, they also have the option of completing a DWI Assessment with a state-certified DWI assessor for additional $100 fee.
