TRIAD's History

TRIAD Addiction Recovery Services was founded in 1976 as Trinity Alcohol and Drug Program by the then-rector of Wilmington’s Trinity Episcopal Church and a recovering alcoholic parishioner.  It was created as a ministry of the church as a center where those struggling with addiction could come for help at a time when few other resources were available in the community.

In 2013 TRIAD filed for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and became an independent nonprofit organization.  It recruited a volunteer Board of Directors which developed a strategic plan to guide the future of the organization.  This included growing the counseling program, developing a network of referral partners in the recovery community, creating a program of educational seminars, and developing a plan for funding the organization.

Over the years TRIAD has provided free counseling for substance abuse and mental health disorders to thousands of addicts and their families, served as a drop-in center for people who just wanted someone to talk to, managed a 24-hour emergency hotline, assisted families in conducting interventions, and hosted thousands of 12-step meetings in the on-site Community Room.

If you need help, know someone who does, or would like to get involved please contact us for information or to set up an appointment.

I was nervous in my first year of recovery. My counselor taught me that I am stronger than I thought I was.  When I had difficulty trusting other people my counselor was the first person I turned to.
Somebody from TRIAD has always been there for me.


I was out of options.  I couldn’t live the way I was any longer and didn’t know what to do.  My counselor helped me put down my walls, sift through years of wreckage, and begin a healthy new life free from alcohol.
