Established in 2005 by LCSWs Tom Reid and Tim Brooks, Carolina Outreach now operates 10 facilities throughout North Carolina, four of which provide outpatient treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders. Facilities in Clayton, Fayetteville, Smithfield and Wilson offer several levels of service including basic outpatient, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), continuing care and aftercare.
Treatment and Staff
The basic outpatient group meets twice a week for 90 minutes over eight weeks (16 sessions). If more intensive intervention is deemed necessary, clients are placed in IOP where group sessions are held three times a week, each for three hours. Clients may participate in 12 to 36 sessions for a maximum of three months. Once they’re ready, clients move into continuing care and work on relapse prevention in 90-minute groups twice a week for an eight week period. Upon graduating, clients go on to aftercare, which consists of weekly 90-minute group sessions for between two and five months.
Everyone at Carolina Outreach has continuous access to a staff psychiatrist and nurse practitioner in the event of an emergency. Many staff members are dually licensed, with credentials including LMFTs, LCASs and LPCs. The ratio of female-to-male staff is about 3:2.
Carolina Outreach provides outpatient services to clients with varying needs and levels of alcohol and substance abuse with co-occurring disorders, incorporating a 12-step model and motivational interviewing. In addition to its treatment services, however, this facility adheres seriously to its core values which include upholding the dignity of clients and employees, straightforward communication, trust and honoring cultural differences. Carolina Outreach may be a good option for those in the South who don’t want full-time inpatient treatment
