Holistic treatment for the mind, body, and spirit.

Healing from addiction requires a whole-person approach that addresses every aspect of a person’s life — from the mental and physical to real-world arenas of work, family, and friends. By harnessing the individual’s desire to change, we empower people to move toward resilience and recovery. We utilize therapeutic treatment models that are evidence-based and have proven efficacy in not just treating substance abuse and mental health disorders, but that also instill life skills and provide the tools to build purpose-driven lives here in Raleigh, NC

Our Philosophy

Clinical Sophistication

We understand that persons seeking treatment rarely present with a narrow, siloed set of symptomatology. Mental health is inherently related to physical, social, and spiritual health. That’s why we have a team of providers skilled in addiction medicine, mental health, and primary care. Aim’s team of physicians, therapists, and coaches prioritize their own personal and professional growth so that we provide the most up-to-date best practices. We combine our individual areas of expertise with robust care coordination to help our patients achieve their wellness goals.

Whole-Person Care

We take a nuanced, patient-centered approach to treating all health conditions: physical, behavioral, emotional, and social. By leveraging an interdisciplinary team and coordinating care, Aim is able to provide evidence-based, integrated care that treats the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.


We believe that everyone wants to live a purpose-driven life full of enjoyment. AIM’s providers work alongside each patient to support flourishing in all aspects of their lives. Our patients may initially seek services to alleviate their symptoms; however, we want to reframe healthcare. AIM’s providers will work with each patient to address all aspects of a patient’s life.

When you come in for your first appointment, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time and bring your insurance card & drivers license. If you have any medical records or psychiatric testing from the previous 12 months, you can bring that too!
AIM accepts cash, check, or credit cards at the time of service. You will also be asked to leave a credit card on file for charges that occur after the visit, including patient responsibility or telehealth follow up appointments.
AIM is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), BCBS My Blue with Duke, UNC Health Alliance, the North Carolina State Health Plan, Cigna / Evernorth, Optum / United, Aetna, and Medicare. All other insurance providers are considered out-of-network. AIM files all insurance claims on patients’ behalf.
Appointments canceled within 24 business hours may be rescheduled with no additional cost, and we will offer the appointment time to someone else. If you cancel the appointment within 24 hours of your appointment or if you miss your appointment, we are unable to offer the appointment to someone else so you will be charged the full amount of the appointment.
AIM offers buprenorphine and Vivitrol for patients who have decided, in collaboration with their medical provider, that MAT is the best course of treatment.
