RALEIGH AND CHARLOTTE (April 1, 2022) — Program participants, staff, volunteers and supporters of Raleigh-based non-profit Healing Transitions will soon experience improvements in their indoor air quality, thanks to an in-kind contribution of patented indoor air cleaning technology from Global Plasma Solutions (GPS).


GPS’s Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBITM) is being installed at Healing Transitions’ two campuses that support individuals in need of addiction recovery services and overnight shelter in the greater Raleigh area.


Healing Transitions offers peer-based, recovery services to homeless, uninsured and underserved individuals with alcoholism and other drug addictions.  Healing Transitions provides support services to more than 270 men and women every day.


“Keeping our programs running safely in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult,” said Chris Budnick, Executive Director at Healing Transitions.  “There have been many days when we’ve had to temporarily close our doors due to the spread of the virus on our campuses. Having a world-class indoor air quality solution like this will go a long way toward helping us keep our staff, participants and volunteers safe and healthy and allow us to better serve our community.”

“Healing Transitions is doing a world of good helping those seeking recovery from addiction to get back on their feet.  Global Plasma Solutions is delighted to assist in a small way by donating our patented indoor air cleaning technology to help program participants, staff, and volunteers,” said Scott Gugenheim, GPS’s Executive Vice President of Sales.

NPBI creates and releases ions into the airstream using a building’s existing HVAC system as the delivery method. When these ions disperse throughout a space, they seek out and form bonds with airborne particles such as dust, dander, smoke and certain pathogens through a process called agglomeration. This creates a snowball effect in which particles begin to cluster together. The larger a cluster of particles becomes, the easier it is for your system to filter it out of the air.

Piedmont Service Group, a Service Logic company, is providing the labor to perform the installation.
