Preferred Care Inc.


In operation since 2011, Preferred Care operates an intensive outpatient (IOP) program for individuals struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders in Raeford, N.C. In addition to offering treatment for chemical dependency, the center runs a food bank, provides HIV case management, and offers psycho-social rehabilitation for adults and children. Similar services are also available through a separate facility located in South Carolina.


Upon admission, each client receives an initial clinical assessment. Based on evaluation findings, Preferred Care’s treatment team works with the client to create an individualized recovery plan. In general, treatment plans utilize the 12-step model and a variety of other modalities that recognize addiction as a disease, not a moral failure. Participants who have been diagnosed with co-occurring mental health disorders are provided with specialized care.

Sessions last three hours and are offered twice a day, Monday through Friday. Lunch is provided, and transportation is available upon request. As part of their treatment, clients are encouraged to attend outside support groups.
