Intensive Outpatient Program
What is your first experience at Stella Maris? Your intake interview determines this. You may start with the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or enter it after detoxification. Either way, IOP helps you build a strong recovery plan.
We understand the fears and challenges you may face in confronting addiction and keeping a sober lifestyle. IOP supports you as you reenter work, school and family. Operating in our Gallagher Center, IOP gives you up to 8 weeks of intensive counseling and case management and 4 weeks of recovery management to keep moving forward. It includes chemical dependence and mental health services, individual, group, and family counseling, educational forums, training, and mentoring. During this phase, you will attend 12-Step meetings and secure a sponsor, because talking with others on the path to recovery is essential. You will also receive vocational counseling and links to job opportunities.
