Changing Tides addiction treatment center is located just 30 feet from the picturesque Kitty Hawk beach, giving residents private access to their own serene stretch of sand. Water lovers get the additional benefit of a large seasonal pool with a deck, where they can relax with their peers. Exercise is an essential part of recovery, and we have a professional basketball hoop installed in the communal yard so you can show off your skills on the court.   We also provide some exercise equipment to our clients who want to ensure they are staying physically fit. Our huge parking lot is the ideal ground for volleyball, basketball and touch football.

Indoors, our unique Peer Community feature provides a platform for residents to socialize with other people in recovery, widening their support network and providing valuable insight.

Staff lives on site, we provide linen and some housekeeping duties are attended to, so residents are free to focus on healing. To unwind after a full day of counseling, psychoeducational classes and experiential therapy, clients can watch TV in their suite. Wi-Fi is available on-site, and our phone service lets families stay up-to-date at every stage of their loved one’s recovery journey. Residents are permitted to keep pets for comfort and companionship. Visit our admissions page to get started or give us a call at 252-715-3905 if you have any questions.
