Quick Response Team

Do you know of anyone who has overdosed?
Have you wanted to help them?

Quick Response Team (QRT) was started in the beginning of 2018 as a partnership between First Responders and other community entities in an effort to reduce the amount of overdoses in the Wilmington area.  In the first year, the team consisting of Peer Support and Licensed Clinicians, met with 148 individuals, 122 of whom successfully entered into treatment. The team provides outreach to at-risk populations and is actively training different members of the community to increase referrals for assistance.

  • We will even come to you!
