Outpatient Treatment Program

Carrboro Center

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.
