Who is eligible for residential treatment at Two Dreams?

Two Dreams is ideal for adult clients (18+ years old) struggling with substance abuse, addictive behavior, and mental disorders. We recommend our residential treatment program to clients who want or need to be out of their home environment in order to focus on changing addictive behaviors and developing a holistically healthy lifestyle.

We are not a detoxification clinic, meaning that we do not manage medical issues related to the withdrawal drugs or alcohol, but we are happy to refer clients out for detox before they officially begin our program. Individuals may be admitted into treatment when there is a qualified diagnosis of need.

Pre-admission assessment screening will be conducted to gauge appropriateness for treatment services and to prepare the staff for the course of treatment.


How many clients are at Two Dreams at any time?

We admit a maximum of 10 primary care clients at a time. By limiting admissions we are able to maintain a high staff to client ratio of 2:1 and provide the individualized attention and support that each client deserves.


What accommodations are available at the residential treatment facility?

Two Dreams is focused on providing a comfortable setting in which clients can fully engage in treatment. Our beach house facility is located on the peaceful shores of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Every client has a private bedroom with either a king or queen sized bed and a non-shared bathroom. Our luxury residence also includes a full-sized kitchen, living room, game room, media/theater room, weight room, a deck with porch swings, and a swimming pool. The house is located a short walk away from the beach where clients can enjoy surfing, swimming, and relaxing in the resort-like atmosphere.

How long does residential treatment take?

Our treatment program is customized to fit each individual's needs, so length of stay is variable. The minimum length of stay is 28 days, and additional 28-day terms are scheduled as necessary. Our experienced staff works with each client throughout their stay to evaluate recovery progress and project timelines for goal completion. The average length of stay in our residential facility is 90 days.

How much does residential treatment cost/What types of insurances do you accept?

The cost varies between clients so it is difficult to give an estimate without gathering more personal information. Insurance coverage varies by company and we are able to give various amounts of aid based on need. Our experienced financial counselor will help you navigate the payment process to determine your coverage and out-of-pocket expenses. We are here to advocate on your behalf to the insurance companies and make the process as stress-free as possible.

Please contact us if you have any questions.


Are laptops and/or cell phones allowed?

Electronics such as iPads's, iPod's, laptops, cameras, DVD's, CD players, etc. are not permitted at Two Dreams. Cell phones are allowed on the premises, but may not be carried around during the day. Therapists may allow certain phone privileges on a case-by-case basis, for example when it is needed to check important voicemail messages or to obtain contact information needed for treatment purposes.


How does Two Dreams protect patient privacy?

Privacy is a top priority at Two Dreams. Clients decide whether or not any information about their treatment and/or progress may be shared with relatives or referring physicians. We never disclose personal confidential information without the client's written, documented consent.

What makes Two Dreams unique?

We believe in individualized drug addiction care here at Two Dreams.

Our comprehensive treatment model sets us apart from other programs in that we consider each individual holistically. In order to ensure that all areas of life are examined, we use a "3-7-3 Model" composed of Three Phases, Seven Dimensions, and Three Outcomes. This all-encompassing plan helps clients gain insight into the pervasive nature of addiction and decreases the likelihood of relapse.
