HopeWay to open mental health treatment center in east Charlotte for teens, young adults

CHARLOTTE — A local mental health treatment center is expanding.

HopeWay will open a new location in east Charlotte to better serve teens and young adults for mental health and eating disorder treatment. The organization has started construction on a 18,716 square-foot space located on Monroe Road.

The facility is expected to open by the end of 2023. HopeWay’s main campus is located on Sharon Road West.

The new facility has been a long time coming for HopeWay.

“HopeWay has received calls about mental health services for adolescents since the day we opened in 2016,” said Dr. Alyson R. Kuroski-Mazzei of Hopeway. “The need for care and programming for adolescents and young adults is severe and immediate. We know our model of care works, and we are excited and confident to expand and bring additional mental health resources to this younger age group.”

There will be programs dedicated to mental health disorders and eating disorders.

More staff will be hired in preparation for the new building. HopeWay is raising $3.5 million for the project. To learn more, click here.
