If you or a loved one is struggling with alcohol or substance abuse, please know there is hope for a better tomorrow. Atrium Health behavioral health addiction services offers both outpatient and inpatient programming with immediate openings. The recovery journey is one you will not travel alone. Let us help.

We can help you 24/7

Atrium Health has expert, proven treatment options and programs for those dealing with drug addiction or alcoholism. Inpatient and outpatient programs are based on 12-step recovery and focus on your mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Our caring addiction specialists also offer aftercare. It’s important to understand all your treatment options. Each one will provide education on your disorder and tools to manage symptoms during treatment, recovery and beyond. We accept patients into both our medical detoxification as well as our outpatient programs. 

What is medical detox?

For some individuals with substance use disorders, the first stage of treatment is medical detoxification, also known as medical detox. This is a process during which your body becomes free of alcohol or other drugs so that you can begin recovery from your dependence on them. At Atrium Health, our compassionate medical staff helps ease the side effects of withdrawal with medications and therapy. This is a safe, effective way to withdraw from substances. One thing that medical detox is NOT is simply going “cold turkey” or quitting the addiction without support and intervention to keep you safe, comfortable and medically stable.

What is outpatient treatment?

Getting help for drug addiction or alcohol abuse outside of the hospital – meaning you do not stay overnight – is a viable option for those seeking help on their road to recovery. Atrium Health has lots of treatment options for you outside the hospital. These outpatient programs allow you to gain the tools for a successful recovery while continuing your daily routine.

Outpatient treatment options

Our outpatient treatment programs are for patients who would benefit from education and support some days of the week and the ability to try their new skills at home and work during the remainder of the week. We offer several proven programs that can assist you on your journey to sobriety.

  • Substance use assessments

    Are you concerned that you, a family member, co-worker or friend may have issues with alcohol or drugs? An assessment is the first step in getting help. We offer an individualized and comprehensive assessment of a person's history and current use of alcohol or other drugs. At the end of the assessment, our clinicians will make a recommendation for the level of care that best meets the patient’s needs.

  • Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)

    This program is for patients addicted to opiate prescription medications, such as narcotic pain pills, as well as those addicted to illegal opiates, such as heroin. MAT is for patients who experience withdrawal symptoms when not using opioids and that continue to use opioids despite negative consequences. Medication-assisted treatment may help reduce the craving for opioids. This level of treatment includes supervision from our medical providers, as well as counseling and support.

  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP)

    Intensive outpatient programs provide patients with more freedom, which allows them to maintain a regular commitment to family, work and educational responsibilities. This non-residential treatment can occur at least 3 times a week at the patient’s choice of day or evening. It may serve as a “step-down” from a more intensive level of care or can serve as the patient’s main treatment.

  • Outpatient counseling

    Therapy and counseling can help you identify the root cause of your drug use, repair relationships and learn healthier coping skills. Our outpatient therapy is provided by licensed therapists who specialize in both mental health-related issues and addiction. Outpatient counseling is generally used only in conjunction with one of our other outpatient groups, though it may be appropriate for patients with mild substance use. In this type of therapy, our therapists evaluate and treat each patient on a one-on-one basis.

Aftercare for substance use disorders

Support is still required after the completion of the intensive, active phase of treatment. This program allows you to continue to get help and support along the journey to wellness. You can participate in Aftercare group therapy or meet individually with a therapist as needed.

Atrium Health's goal in aftercare – the time after a patient leaves a treatment program – is to teach patients and their families how to cope with life without the use of substances. During aftercare, with the help of our trained addiction team, you focus on 3 important things:

  1. You learn how to manage symptoms of the disease.
  2. You build a relapse prevention plan
  3. You find community support.

Our aftercare treatment for substance use disorders includes:

  • Education
  • Introduction to additional community resources
  • Access to group meetings, where you get support from others on the same journey
  • Programming for the family in recovery, because substance use disorder is a family issue
