Opioid Addiction Recovery Program in Morganton In Future Plans
An opioid addiction recovery program in Morganton, North Carolina is being planned to help residents of Burke County find help for opioid use disorders.

The addiction recovery program called HARBOUR, which means Helping Achieve Recovery through Burke Opioid Use Reduction, is being launched in January.
Burke Recovery, the nonprofit starting the program, started in 1966 as the Burke Council on Alcoholism and Chemical Dependency (BCACD) after people wanted to build educational courses about alcohol abuse. The group was known as the Burke County Council on Alcoholism at the time. It would change their name to BCACD in 1987 after beginning the student-assistance program.
By 1989, the student-assistance program had been started in every school in the county, including incorporating the council into a United Way agency.
Along with educational services for youths, Burke Recovery has been providing drug abuse treatment services for adults since 2010.
Burke Recovery offers five different programs: prevention, outpatient addiction treatment, the Flynn Recovery Community, the B.R.I.D.G.E. program and the Recovery Support program.
The Flynn Recovery Community Program is a unique program that only accepts male patients who have been sober for 30 days, have attempted to recover and illustrate how they continue to be committed to recovering from a substance use disorder.
