Closing Effective January 29, 2021 - We leave you with gratitude and confidence in the vibrancy of the Wilmington Recovery Community. For many, recovery from addiction is a long, personal and often difficult journey.

It takes courage to make the powerful decision to change directions - to step toward a life of recovery and to stay on the path to healthy living. Hand in hand with that courage, you want the competent support of those who truly understand what it takes to begin and sustain the effort. It is critical to partner with a treatment provider that is committed to, and singularly focused on providing you

Operating as usual


To our Eastern NC and Coastal friends! We at Pavillon and at Pavillon By the Sea hope you had a good holiday and we wish you much health and success in the new year ahead.

Unfortunately, 2020 has been an unprecedented, unpredictable year for us and we also have experienced the consequences of a worldwide pandemic. It is with much thought and consideration that we have decided to close Pavillon by the Sea, effective January 29, 2021.

Since 2016, Pavillon by the Sea has touched the lives of 207 patients and their family members. It has touched countless family members through its free community family support groups. We have been a valuable part of the Wilmington recovery community, hosting Y12SR, Caduceus, and AA meetings. We thank you all for the support and trust you have shown us over the past few years. We are saddened to leave, yet we know Wilmington as a vibrant, recovery community and know it will continue as such!

Our detox, residential center in Mill Spring will continue to provide strong, quality treatment and to serve your residential needs as always with treatment you can continue to trust. Please feel free to continue to reach out to us as always if we can be of service in any way.

Thank you again for the support you have shown Pavillon By the Sea.


Wishing you the very best, from our families to yours.


Tonight! Recovery Community Workshop

Emotionally Sober for Life - Ron Chapman
December 21st 7:00 PM EST

All people and families in recovery have to deal with disappointments, frustration and resentments. Too often, however, we don't take the time to understand our role in these negative outcomes. The good news is that much of this is preventable; the even better news is that the personal inventory practices within the twelve steps are a solution. Emotionally Sober for Life will teach us about identifying, exploring and releasing expectations and reaping the benefits of greater emotional sobriety.

Zoom in and join us December 21st at 7:00 PM EST from your phone, tablet or computer.

How I Achieved and Maintain Sobriety - A Pavillon Alumni Blog

It’s been a little over six years since my last drinking binge. My journey to sobriety had started almost two years before that with a trip to detox after my drinking had begun to cause major problems in all aspects of my life. I thought that if I could just get through the physical withdrawal phase, I would be able to manage from there. People told me that since I was older, I might have an easier time of it. Three subsequent stays in rehab proved that was not the case. By the second stay I had surrendered and accepted the fact that I could no longer drink at all. I always did well in the residential setting, perhaps too well, as I found it preferable to life in the real world. I quickly went back to a job I hated, twice. I was fired just prior to my third stay so I had lots of time to focus on my recovery when I emerged.

I went to a meeting almost every day of my first full year of sobriety. I prayed, meditated and read a lot, not just recovery but all kinds of literature. Libraries are a wonderful resource. Those overwhelming cravings which seemed to come out of the blue, but had no doubt been building for weeks, gradually subsided.

I’ve had many wonderful adventures during the intervening years. The Promises surely did come true, although it took longer than I might have hoped. My checkered past adversely affected my employment prospects initially, yet I’ve managed to find near steady work following the year I spent focusing on recovery. It’s awesome to wake up without a hangover. Indeed, my drinking had progressed to the point where the main objective of each day was just to slog through it until I could get my hands on the next one. I’ve regained the trust and respect of my family and friends. I have many new friends thanks to meetings and other acquaintances I’ve made now that I’m no longer an alcoholic recluse.

I still start each day with the Third Step prayer followed by anything more specific I feel the need to pray about. Once I’m up, I’ll take a few minutes to read the passage in the 24 Hours a Day book or The Daily Refection. If time permits, I’ll meditate at some point during the day. If I feel overwhelmed by something during the course of the day, I’ll pray about it and a portion of the burden is reliably lifted. I end the day with gratitudes. They are especially important after a bad day. The hiatus in meetings due to the coronavirus has been a sad thing. I had continued to attend two or three every week up until the virus struck. It’s no doubt an added challenge for those early in recovery. Our church was closed for a long time as well, but I’ve always felt closest to God when I’m out in the woods or some other natural environment. I try to spend time outdoors every day. It works for me. We must each find our own way and I hope you are similarly successful.

Feel bad? That’s ok.

Talking with a coworker today, we were both concerned about a friend we are afraid is not being completely honest about his struggles. This led into a discussion about one of the biggest misconceptions in recovery, the misconception that if we struggle or feel bad that something is wrong with our recovery. I believed this for many years, it kept me from being completely open, it riddled me with guilt, and created a lot of shame about my recovery program. It wasn’t until I realized that recovery allows me to experience life fully, including the struggles, that I was able to let go of all of that. Life is hard sometimes, people struggle, people feel depressed, anxious, lonely, afraid, etc. And that’s O.K.. Recovery gives us tools to work on these things, not through avoiding them, but trudging through them.
