HAMPTON—The Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and the Master Center for Addiction Medicine invites the Peninsula business community to a ribbon-cutting ceremony to be held on Wednesday, September 15 at 5pm. The ceremony will be held at the Master Center for Addiction Medicine’s new Hampton office, located at 2208 Executive Drive, Suite E.

The Master Center for Addiction Medicine is a physician-led addiction treatment program with locations throughout Virginia—including Richmond, Gloucester, and Hampton. It is expanding to new locations to serve the needs of Central Virginia and beyond. Master Center For Addiction Medicine is committed to an evidenced-based, organized, system-wide response to the disease of addiction.

Master Center was originally known as Virginia Center for Addiction Medicine when it was co-founded by Dr. James Thompson, one of Richmond’s first board-certified Addiction Medicine physicians to be named a Fellow of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, and Dr. Sherman Master, a renowned pioneer in Addiction Psychiatry and one of the most trusted and respected physicians in the region.

The center offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to every individual it serves by drawing on the expertise of an array of experienced addiction counselors and therapists. Master Center is proud to be the first physician-led practice to hire and fully utilize Peer Recovery Coaches as personal patient helpers, guides, teachers, and care navigators. Their goal is to make addiction treatment accessible, understandable, and affordable.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
