Who We Are

Facility Overview

Our Philosophy

Samaritan Colony believes that addiction is a three-fold illness and unless all three areas are treated, a person's life can become unmanageable. These three areas are physical, mental, and spiritual.

We believe that through the commitment to abstinence from alcohol & drugs, the development of responsibility, acceptance of a higher power, and supportive connections in the recovery community, long-term recovery can be yours.

Our Services

Sober Dad-0001

28-Day Residential Treatment

Our program is a 12-Step facilitation program that includes evidence-based, cognitive, behavioral, social, and recreational therapies. We also provide character-building classes where men learn to put structure and responsibility back into their lives.Through individual and group therapy, family counseling, and essential life skills training, you will be able to livea sober life with confidence.

Family Program

Addiction affects everyone, including the family. However, family support and commitment can make a huge impact on the recovery process. We'll give you the resources and counseling to begin the healing process together.

Recovery Housing and Aftercare Planning

Our clinical staff works with you to coordinate a plan for aftercare and housing, if needed. Some men will return home to their families, others will consider going back to school, or will need jobs and recovery supported housing.

Community Outreach

We work with community collaboratives, religious, medical, social service, and criminal justice providers to offer education and to promote recovery in the Sandhills and other areas of North Carolina.
