Eleanor Health Expands Virtual Services in North Carolina

January 4, 2021 GMT

WILMINGTON, N.C. & CARY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 4, 2021--

Eleanor Health, the first addiction and mental health provider delivering convenient and comprehensive care through a value-based payment structure, announced the virtual opening of their Wilmington and Cary locations with in-person services to be offered by the end of the month.

The openings come as looming pandemic-induced uncertainty has taken a toll on the region’s mental health, with the state seeing 648 opioid overdose emergency room visits in November 2020 alone, underscoring the need for treatment providers to expand their services and delivery options.

“2020 tested us in unimaginable ways,” said Eleanor Health Co-Founder and CEO, Corbin Petro. “We know people are in tremendous need of personalized support--especially now as the COVID-19 health crisis continues, causing many to be isolated while facing loneliness, triggers, and anxiety. We are thrilled to offer expanded services to the Wilmington and Cary communities, supporting them in caring for their wellbeing in this incredibly stressful environment.”

“We are looking forward to welcoming these communities and offering them services without barriers, meeting them where they are in this challenging time,” said Dr. Nzinga Harrison, Co-Founder and CMO of Eleanor Health. “Now more than ever, people need support that serves the whole person and that is our goal. To serve people in their recovery, right where they are.”

These openings mark Eleanor’s sixth and seventh clinics in North Carolina, leveraging telehealth, technology, and Eleanor’s team of more than 50 members including medical, nursing, therapy, and recovery support. Eleanor Health’s services include Medication Assisted Treatment, therapy and counseling, psychiatric evaluation, recovery resources, and telehealth services.

“It has never been more important for treatment to be flexible that meets people virtually or in-person, grounded in evidence-based principles and customized for the individual,” said Danica Patterson, MHA, FACHE, North Carolina General Manager for Eleanor Health. “We are proud to serve these communities both virtually and in-person to ensure our members have the support, clinical care, and coaching they need to pursue recovery.”
