Behavioral Health & Substance Use Treatment in NC
Our Approach

North Carolina Substance Use Programs

Addiction Treatment Services in North Carolina

October Road provides many substance use treatment programs in Asheville, Charlotte, and surrounding areas. During your first appointment, you will meet with a master-level licensed clinician who will perform a Comprehensive Care Assessment. The results of this assessment will help us determine which treatment program is right for you.

Outpatient Program

Outpatient substance use treatment is a valuable tool for individuals who have already completed a higher level of treatment (such as inpatient or intensive outpatient) and want to continue working on their recovery skills. It can also be used as an initial level of treatment, or as a preventative measure for those who feel that they are becoming dependent on drugs and alcohol.

Typically, outpatient programs include group or individual therapy sessions where clients will learn to recognize, confront, and overcome the triggers of their substance use issues.

The education provided through outpatient treatment can help an individual turn to healthier and more appropriate ways of coping.

October Road provides a variety of trauma-informed outpatient substance use treatment services:
