Program Narrative

Two Dreams is a clinically luxurious, highly individualized and all inclusive program for the treatment of addiction and all challenges associated with dependency. Two Dreams combines evidence based practices, 12-step based programming, holistic care and state of the art treatment protocols in order to assist patients in achieving mental peace, physical well-being, and personal productivity.

Program Description

Two Dreams implements a Three Phase Program based upon Seven Dimensions of Treatment to provide our guests with Three Healthy Outcomes.

The Three Phases

  • Coming In: We believe that our guests cannot successfully do the work of treatment unless they have first established safety and trust with their peers and our treatment professionals. It is crucial in this phase that individuals have time to believe and feel supported by those around them.
  • Looking In: Once they have established safety and trust, they can do the introspective work of treatment, where they can discover new aspects of themselves and learn to honor their thoughts, feelings, and aspirations in order to move forward in the healing process.
  • Looking Out: Finally, we encourage them to look outward and figure out what kind of program they need to support the gains made in treatment in a self-directed way. We believe in giving our guests the tools that they can use anytime, anywhere.



The Seven Dimensions

At Two Dreams our treatment model is based upon these seven different dimensions. These seven aspects are a fundamental part of our holistic approach that we believe fosters a well-rounded and self-sufficient individual.

  • Abstinence
  • Peer Support
  • Professional Guidance
  • Medication Review
  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Ritual (With a Strong Twelve Step Component)

 

Here are a few specific examples of healthy and helpful routines that are incorporated into these Seven Dimensions:

  • Sleep Hygiene Program
  • Nutritious, well-balanced meals
  • Addressing Pain
  • Daily Sun Salutations
  • Daily Journaling
  • Participating in a group schedule

 

The Three Outcomes

We give our guests the necessary tools so that when they come out of treatment they are able to maintain:

  • Mental Peace
  • Physical Well-being
  • Personal Productivity

Message from President/CEO

Dear ASAM Physician:

I am delighted to share with you the news that I have opened Two Dreams Outer Banks, an individualized addiction treatment program rooted in the principles set forth by the American Society of Addition Medicine (ASAM). Two Dreams Outer Banks offers medically managed, clinically intense ASAM Levels I and II care and,when combined with our healthy-living residence, has the ability to provide the equivalent of Level III care to meet patients' unique needs. On a daily basis our medical team applies its experience in internal medicine, addiction psychiatry, and treatment processes to review and optimize each patient's treatment plan and to guide the Doctorate- and Masters-level clinical professionals who provide psychosocial therapies. We have designed our medically directed evaluation, care, and treatment of mental and substance-related disorders to help our patients achieve emotional peace, physical health, and personal productivity. To that end, we incorporate daily physician case reviews, regular physician consultations, a customized nutrition plan to address detoxification and recovery needs including weight gain or loss, personal training and sports coaching, and counseling for personal success. At the core of our model are 35 hours per week of individual and group psychosocial therapies, including MET, mindfulness meditation, art and movement therapy, and psychoeducation. Our medical management and clinical intensity distinguish us in the field of addiction treatment, but so do the following features of the Two Dreams Outer Banks program: We are located on the soothing shoreline of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, only steps away from the beach. We welcome pets when clinically appropriate. Our patients enjoy moderate access to their cell phones and laptops when clinically appropriate We are competitively priced and offer loans and scholarships to patients with financial need We treat individuals with chronic pain and psychiatric illnesses which require medication management We welcome the insights and encourage the ongoing participation of the physicians who refer patients to Two Dreams Outer Banks My colleagues and I would be happy to consult with you to determine whether Two Dreams Outer Banks is the right place for any of your patients, including individuals who have experienced multiple relapses or want to enhance their recovery.

Very truly yours, Andrea G. Barthwell, MD, FASAM Past President of ASAM
