What kind of services and programs do you offer for heroin users?

  • Coastal Horizons Center provides confidential outpatient treatment, including Opioid Treatment Program services (Methadone and Buprenorphine/Naloxone), Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Treatment, Basic Individual, Group and Family Therapy, and Medication Management. We can provide referrals for Inpatient detoxification and stabilization.  We also provide some limited housing options through our HARRTS and HUD Horizons Housing programs.
  • Horizons Health is available on-site to provide team-based primary care, including health coaching, for all of our outpatient treatment patients.  Free HIV and Hepatitis testing is also available.

Do you provide detox?
We provide Opioid Maintenance Therapy – including Induction, Stabilization and Taper. We do not offer inpatient detoxification at our facility, but we have a strong network of referral sources and can refer and link patients with inpatient detox.

Do I have to stay on site or can I commute from home?
All of our services – except for our HARRTS Residential program  - are provided on an outpatient basis. We do not offer inpatient services. Therefore, all patients commute from home.

For how long?
Outpatient Treatment – including Opioid Treatment Program Services – are offered for as long as treatment is beneficial to the patient.

What will it cost? 

  • Outpatient Treatment fees are based on insurance coverage or, if patients are uninsured, State funding may be available which will allow a “sliding scale” discount on fees.  Fees for SAIOP range from $0 - $1500 for the 13 week course of SAIOP. Fees for OTP (Methadone or Suboxone dispensing) range from $20 - $70 per week.  There is no co-payment for patients with North Carolina Medicaid. Earned and elective take-home doses (not covered by Medicaid or State funding) are $4.00 per day. 
  • Horizons Health (primary care) fees are also based on insurance coverage or, if patients are uninsured, primary care services are usually provided for a minimal $3 co-pay.  HIV and Hepatitis testing are provided at no charge.

Do you take insurance?
We accept North Carolina Medicaid, Medicare, and are in–network with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Carolina. Other insurances may vary based on out of network or exception benefit coverage.
