ABOUT CAROLINA BEHAVIORAL CARE

Carolina Behavioral Care (CBC) provides outpatient-based mental health and substance use disorder treatment through North Carolina facilities in Pinehurst, Durham, and Hillsborough. The organization emphasizes physician-led assessments and treatment for individuals who are struggling with chemical dependency as well as co-occurring mental health disorders. Each clinic also offers medically managed outpatient detox, among the just 6.5 percent of North Carolina facilities to do so.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Assessment services at Carolina Behavioral Care include a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and urine testing. The average wait time for an initial appointment is two weeks, according to the facility’s website.

Clients in need of medical support during withdrawal from most chemical addictions, including alcohol, cocaine, benzodiazepines, and opioids, receive in-office daily care that incorporates counseling and medication management. If necessary, clinics offer a buprenorphine maintenance program to help ease the discomfort of opioid withdrawal.

CBC’s primary treatment modality is motivational interviewing (MI), which is designed to be non-confrontational. Treatment staff also practice cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy, and trauma-oriented eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). These modalities are designed to modify irrational thinking and behavioral patterns. The facility’s website also highlights its service to active military members, their families, and veterans.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Two of Carolina Behavioral Care’s doctors are U.S. military veteran, board-certified in psychiatry and neurology. The facility also employs psychologists, psychiatric nurses, master’s-level counselors, physicians assistants, and pharmacists,
