SouthLight is a trusted provider of quality service for substance use and mental health treatment needs in the Triangle. We help individuals gain the tools needed to build a strong foundation for long-term recovery. Every year our work helps transform the lives of more than 8,500 people.
For 50 years SouthLight has offered a safe and supportive treatment environment where individuals in crisis can receive comprehensive care, offered with compassion and respect. We believe in treating the whole individual, not just the illness. We also offer supportive services that enhance the effectiveness of substance use and mental health treatment.
One of our core values is the commitment to meet people where they are no matter where they are on their journey. We offer them the individual care they desperately need, regardless of ability to pay. Our service philosophy is to provide treatment and wrap-around services that address the unique needs of each client, as nothing is one-size-fits-all.
Many clients face the highest barriers to wellness, including untreated mental illness, chemical dependency, and history of incarceration, cognitive and physical disabilities, trauma, and chronic illness. At SouthLight, many of our clients benefit from receiving both substance use and mental health programs.
SouthLight has been an integral part of the fabric of this community, providing mental health and substance use services, educational services in our judicial system, our school system and throughout our community.Mary-Ann Baldwin, Raleigh mayor
