Steppingstones to Recovery offers Intensive Outpatient services for those struggling with substance abuse issues and co-occurring disorders. Steppingstones to Recovery is located at Augusta, Ge...
Alcoholism:The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.Dual Diagnosis:When the person has both a substance abuse problem and a mental health issue such as depression, bipolar disorder, or anxiety, it is called a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. Because there are many combinations of disorders that can occur, the symptoms of dual diagnosis vary widely. A Co-Occurring Disorder is a very broad category; it can range from someone developing mild depression because of binge drinking, to someones symptoms of bipolar disorder becoming more severe when that person abuses heroin during periods of mania. Either mental illness or substance abuse can develop first.Untreated co-occurring disorders can lead to major problems at home and work and in the daily life, so its important to seek help.The best treatment for co-occurring disorders is an integrated approach, where both the substance abuse problem and the mental disorder are treated simultaneously, often lowering costs and creating better outcomes.Substance Abuse:Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Outpatient:Outpatient Programs (OP) are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.Intensive Outpatient:Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). Their intensive outpatient drug rehab programs provide clients guidance from masters level clinicians and addiction specialists and help them get support from others on their own recovery journey. Clients learn a range of valuable recovery skills in intensive outpatient treatment. In their IOP, clients develop the skills and relationships needed to sustain recovery from alcohol and other drug use while keeping up with job, school and family commitments.Aftercare Support:Recovery from addictive diseases is a lifelong process. To give a boost to this reality, Steppingstones offers weekly follow-up sessions for a minimum of 1 year for all who satisfactorily complete the program. Statistics demonstrate that those who complete this recommendation have a high percentage of long-term success in sobriety.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one\'s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient\'s own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.Family Therapy:Steppingstones believes that substance abuse affects the entire family and social unit and knows that the whole system must heal as well in order to maintain balance in recovery. This program is for family members, friends, employeers, and significant others and is offered for no extra charge.Group Therapy:Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.Individual Therapy:In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.Motivational Interviewing:Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.
