Introduction and Basic Services

Two Dreams offers luxury substance abuse treatment services in North Carolina, Chicago and New Orleans. The Two Dreams Outer Banks branch offers residential treatment in a beautiful beach house located in Corolla, North Carolina. The Chicago and New Orleans facilities are outpatient only. Two Dreams is a family run organization, founded Andrea Barthwell who is considered a pioneer in the addiction treatment field. All locations provide individualized chemical dependency and mental health treatment in an intimate setting.

Facility and Meals

The residential location accommodates no more than 10 clients at a time in private bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The comfortable and luxurious home is steps from the shoreline. Every bedroom is furnished with either a king or queen sized bed and dressed with high thread count sheets to ensure maximum comfort. Common areas within the residence include a living room, game and media room, large kitchen, pool and deck with lounge chairs.

Three nutritious meals per day are included during treatment at Two Dreams Outer Banks. There is a set menu daily, however clients are able to request changes due to a preference or allergy. Snacks and coffee are available as well.

Treatment Protocol and Team

Two Dreams has a unique treatment approach combining holistic measures with traditional approaches. There are seven dimensions to treatment that includes abstinence, peer support, professional guidance, medication review, nutrition, exercise and the ritual of the 12 steps. This, in addition to regular group and individual therapy, creates a safe and structured environment. Detox is not offered, but clients can receive referrals if necessary.

A typical day in treatment is comprised of an early morning wake up and morning meditation on the beach, followed by several group sessions and an AA or NA meeting in the evening. Therapeutic methods are evidence based and include CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), trauma-informed care, anger management, relapse prevention and learning new coping skills. Additionally, medication management is available for dual diagnosis clients.

Outpatient treatment is offered in the Chicago and New Orleans locations and serves as the aftercare program. The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) picks up where inpatient treatment leaves off in addition to an emphasis on extended addiction education and utilizing a support community and 12-step sponsorship.

The Two Dreams treatment team includes medical staff, along with Master’s-level therapists, case workers, psychiatrists and LPCs.
