Anonymous

bed side manner were fine, good food but not enough. Great place that helped me immensely.

Wendy

Individual counseling was great.

Anonymous

Not a bad choice for rehab but lacks in a comprehensive on-going plan after IOP. In patient needs to be longer before IOP starts.

TH

Strong, patient/client-centered program, highest ethical standards. CARF accredited. Multiple locations in Raleigh, Durham, Garner & Cary NC

Phillip

Great facility, but needs improved holistic offerings.

MGW

An overall great program.


Areas of Focus
Individualized Treatment

Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
