Alcohol and Drug Rehab in an Authentic and Classic Beach-Style Motel on the OBX

We believe in “set” and “setting” for a healthy recovery. Mind “set” and location (setting) are crucial to a long term approach to drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Here at Changing Tides, we have specifically chosen our location with care. Changing Tides OBX is a treatment facility converted from a rustic Outer Banks beach motel called “The Buccaneer”. For years, travelers have known the OBX by its classic motels with flat roofs, simple living and close proximity to our legendary beaches. Our facility is very much in the spirit of these well loved motels and we are across the street from the beach in Kitty Hawk, NC. We have witnessed time and again our residents surrendering to the serenity that comes with living simply in a beautiful location. If you surf, fish or just like to swim or walk on the beach, our location puts you at the doorstep a beautiful mother nature in all of its glory.
