Burlington Center

UNC Horizons will meet with each woman to see what level of treatment will work for her. Counselors will also meet with clients in their home or at other agencies.  After admission, a client will receive case management, individual and/or group counseling. If a client needs a residential level of care, she will be referred to our residential programs or other similar residential programs in the State.

Group Treatment at the Burlington Center


The SAIOP (Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient Program) meets daily (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) from 9:30 AM -12:30 PM for a 3 to 4 month period.  SAIOP includes an individual therapy session, daily process group and educational groups. The educational groups focus on:

Addiction Education/Relapse Prevention

Managing Feelings and Stress

Relationship and Family Issues

Learning Sober Leisure Activities

Education on the Effects of Trauma




Relapse Prevention is for graduates of the 3 month SAIOP program and also for women with at least 60 days sobriety. The group meets each Thursday from 9:30AM - 12:30 PM on an ongoing basis. Women who complete this phase identify their own relapse warning sign pattern, develop and practice new recovery management tools, and continue discussion on parenting and relationships.

Women in either SAIOP program also receive Individual Counseling at least every other week.
