GLOUCESTER – Master Center, an addiction outpatient treatment facility in the Edgehill Shopping Center on Main Street, will hold a ribbon-cutting and networking event Thursday, September 15.

The ceremony, which will take place from 5:30pm to 6:30pm at its new location at 6760 Main St. Suite C, is being held to raise awareness of National Recovery Month. On hand for the networking will be addiction medicine providers, addiction psychiatry providers, therapists, outpatient coordinators, and peer recovery specialists.

The center opened its Gloucester office in January 2021 at 7280 York Ave. and moved just a few blocks to the Edgehill Shopping Center in April. It is open from 8:30am to 5pm Monday through Friday.

The Master Center treats a wide variety of addictions with programs led by physicians. It also has locations in Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, and Hampton. Originally, it was known as Virginia Center for Addiction Medicine, and was founded in 2016.

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
