Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The scope of the problem SouthLight Healthcare addresses is vast. Over the last five years, mental health and substance use disorders have worsened in our community. Not only are both mental health and substance use disorders growing areas of concern for our overall population, but each is also increasingly impacting younger people. Persons with mental health and substance use issues are also frequently described as being an overlooked and/or particularly vulnerable population. The effects of substance use and mental health are cumulative, significantly contributing to costly social, physical, mental, and public health problems. Last year the number of clients served by SouthLight that reported homelessness was 16% higher than the state average and the pandemic has created more people in need of food, housing, transportation and other basic needs. Additionally, 54% of the people SouthLight serves are indigent, uninsured or underinsured.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SouthLight Healthcare is uniquely positioned to address substance use and mental health needs and is the go-to agency for many of the most desperate people in our community. Many participants 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, our clients benefit from innovative substance use and mental health programs that combines the best of inpatient and outpatient care. We provide tools that can improve the experience on the road to wellness: medication, counseling (therapy), social support and education.

Studies show recovery programs like SouthLight that involve social support and are helpful for people struggling with regulating their addiction and mental health thrive because of mutual peer support and different behavioral therapies. Additionally, SouthLight continues to work with its many community partners – healthcare, legal system, government agencies and other non-profit agencies – to more collectively impact our community’s response to individuals and families experiencing substance use and mental illness.

One of SouthLight’ Healthcare's core values is our commitment to meet people where they are no matter where they are on their journey. Our dedicated team of top professionals continues to serve on the frontlines of not only the addiction and mental health crisis but on the frontlines of coronavirus. The extent to which we can help people find – regardless of their ability to pay -healthy ways to cope with stress could minimize the likelihood that they turn to alcohol or other drugs. Our wide footprint and broad array of integrated services across multiple co-located satellite points throughout Wake County uniquely position us to meet this need.

By maintaining treatment capacity and service options, Wake County’s indigent and at-risk population will experience improved health, reclaimed lives, stability and renewed purpose in life. Through education efforts, Wake County’s most vulnerable citizens will be more aware of options available to them for treatment and support. We will continue to create and expand strategic partnerships that align with our mission to address whole person care, improve care options and fully address social determinants of health.

For more than 50 years, SouthLight Healthcare has been a trusted provider of quality service for substance use and mental health treatment needs in the Triangle of North Carolina. We operate on the belief that long-term and sustained recovery requires access to not only a full continuum of health services, but also to basic needs such as housing, job training, and transportation, among others. We remain dedicated to providing the best possible care for our clients no matter where they are on their journeys.

SouthLight creates mutually-supportive communities where individuals improve their physical, mental and social well-being and gain skills and resources to sustain their recovery. Our counseling and more specialized psychotherapies seek to change behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and how people see and understand situations. Additionally, our medication assisted treatments for mental and substance use disorders provides significant relief for many people and helps manage symptoms to the point where people can use other strategies to pursue recovery.

For 50 year, SouthLight Healthcare has been a trusted provider of quality service for substance use and mental health treatment needs in the Triangle of North Carolina. 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 9,000 people.

Now more than ever, SouthLight is committed to ensuring people of all ages, from all backgrounds and all walks of life have access to compassionate, high-quality affordable health care. In order to manage the funding restrictions and simultaneously care for all who come to us for help with addiction and mental illness, SouthLight must consistently evaluate its financial systems and internal operations to ensure efficiencies across the board. We are committed to strong, reliable outcomes that, in turn, keep the organization in good standing with state managed care organizations (MCOs).
