Who We Are

Changing Tides is a treatment center for drug and alcohol addiction located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We provide both the housing aspect of treatment and the clinical services for recovery from addiction all on one site. On-site services provided are individual therapy, group therapy and family therapy as well as some programming and educational therapies. Our substance abuse treatment facility provides a "real world environment" experience that is conducive to recovery from addiction, while receiving services needed to thrive in recovery. Our program provides clients the structure with the freedom to begin or continue their recovery in a healthy way with accountability and therapy. A couple of aspects that make our center so special are the following: *On-Site Clinical Services *Private Rooms Available *On-site Family Program *Pet Friendly

Mission Statement

Our goal at Changing Tides is to provide hope and coping skills for those struggling with the complexities of life. Our desire is to aid individuals in making the CHANGE necessary to restore their lives. Beneath the suffering is the ability for each person to experience serenity. We are committed to helping our clients achieve that experience through individual, group, and family therapy, psychoeducation, peer support, and an emphasis on structure. We hope to help clients establish healthier habits and continued growth in all areas of their lives. Here at Changing Tides we wholeheartedly believe that CHANGE IS POSSIBLE!


At Changing Tides we have private rooms available for clients who prefer to have their own room. We also have family style suites, some afford clients to have their own bedroom and some provide a shared spacious bedroom with one other client. Whether a client is in a family style or private living space, kitchens are included for meal preparations. Each room, unless it is a private bedroom will also include a living room space for clients to sit together and watch TV, read, complete assignments, etc. Changing Tides affords clients privacy and confidentiality in a secluded and peaceful area in order to recover from addiction. Another unique aspect of our program is that we do allow some pets to accompany their owners while at Changing Tides. For more information about specific requirements please contact our admissions department. Please note that we do not allow any violent or aggressive animals.
