Intensive Case Management

Providing structure and acountability
to ensure continued success in recovery.

Once the addiction cycle has been broken and the individual has returned from in-patient treatment, it is essential to implement a plan that provides the greatest probability for long-term recovery.  Recovering individuals are at their greatest risk of relapse during their first year as they acclimate to living life without substances.  Statistically speaking, the odds are against them and relapse often occurs when left to their own devices, without professional guidance and a formal plan of recovery in place.

Our mission is to shepherd our clients through their first year, building the critical foundation necessary to excel in life free from substances. Our Intensive Case Management program provides the vital elements necessary to greatly improve the likelihood of achieving a heightened success rate.

Intensive Case Management aftercare is designed to meet each individual’s needs and provide structure and accountability around the tasks of a successful recovery. Aftercare treatment is coordinated with the client and treatment facility prior to discharge. Our Intensive Case Management program provides:

  • Substance Abuse Counseling
  • Recovery Coaching & Mentoring
  • Collateral Counseling: interaction with psychiatrist, therapist and other engaged professionals
  • Family Support: continuous guidance, coaching and education (maintaining client confidentiality with Partial Disclosure Agreement)
  • Relapse Prevention strategies
  • Assignments
  • Self-help program guidance: initially attend meetings with clients
  • Development of daily and weekly recovery routine
  • Life Coaching (career, relationship, nutrition, conflict resolution and spiritual guidance)


Statistically speaking, the average person who returns from in-patient treatment facilities achieves long-term sobriety (over a year) anywhere between 20-40% of the time. When partnering with an Intensive Case Manager, their likelihood for success escalates dramatically. This is a direct result of our counseling, mentoring, monitoring as well as other ancillary services. We also enhance core family dynamics by alleviating many of the unnecessary responsibilities and fears that family members embrace which often infringe upon a client’s progress. Clients sign a Partial Disclosure Agreement which maintains their confidentiality while effectively keeping close family members appropriately apprised of their progress. We also provide continuous guidance, coaching and education to family members.

Often times, people who suffer from addiction enter recovery with great fervor and enthusiasm. For the first time in a long time they are feeling well mentally, physically and spiritually. As the first year progresses, their “bottom” can appear further back in the rear view mirror, life’s challenges begin to mount, and without the right plan and relationships in place, relapse can enter the picture. The Intensive Case Manager partners with the client to guide them through the most challenging phase of recovery by providing them with an integral foundation necessary for long-term results.

The following outlines typical forms of interaction between the Intensive Case Manager and the client:

  • In-person meetings:
  • One on one counseling sessions
  • Initially coordinate and attend self-help meetings
  • When appropriate, attend events and activities together in an effort to further develop recovery and to act as a resource at triggering events. This can include sporting and other entertainment venues, galas, parties, lectures, etc.
  • Phone sessions
  • Scheduled sessions throughout each week
  • Ad-hoc interaction:
  • Phone, Text, Email, In-person meetings
