Substance Use Disorder Outpatient Program

Program Overview

StarCare’s SUD Outpatient Program provides services to those who struggle with substance use issues and who do not require a more structured environment such as residential services to meet their treatment goals. While in services, clients will attend weekly individual counseling and group counseling sessions. During their time in services, the client will work with a counselor to address identified problem areas by teaching healthy coping skills to strengthen their ability to maintain their sobriety and care for their mental and emotional wellbeing.

Program Goals

  • Program staff will assist the client in identifying and addressing problems, which create challenging situations for maintaining recovery. The program will also emphasize relapse prevention skills for clients to develop a drug free lifestyle in order to improve their overall wellbeing. Through group counseling, client’s will also learn about the relationship between trauma and substance use through the Seeking Safety Workbook.
  • Program staff will also assist clients in developing necessary life skills such as problem-solving skills, maintaining steady employment to become economically self-sufficient, self-care, enhance relationship skills to promote family and social rehabilitation, and increase skills for drug free living. Clients will be provided education on tobacco cessation, overdose prevention and HIV/AIDS and STDs.
