Adolescent Substance Abuse Program (CSTAR)
Level I is community based intensive outpatient/day treatment. It is the most structured and intensive service delivery option in the CSTAR Program and has been designed to simulate the therapeutic intensity of inpatient and residential treatment programs. The purpose of Level I is to interrupt the pattern of substance use and to provide treatment and structure in a substance-free setting.
Adolescents in Level I of the program participate in a 60 day intensive day treatment program which encompasses 50 hours per week of activities, including individual and group therapy, education, family education therapy, and case management. The adolescent is challenged physically, intellectually and emotionally. By meeting the challenges, the adolescents steadily develop their self image and a sense of responsibility. The program utilizes an experiential component where physical activities are expressly designed so that they require teamwork and cooperation to develop problem-solving skills, self-esteem and relationship skills. Temporary residential housing with therapeutic parents is available during Level I if required.
Level II is designed to assist the adolescent maintain sobriety while living productively in the community. This intermediate level of care focuses on improving client functioning, satisfaction in family and interpersonal relationships, school, health, work, and money management.
Level II offers at least 10 total treatment/ service hours each week which include individual counseling and/or family therapy, group counseling and group education. Case management services are also available in addition to the 10 expected hours of program participation.
Level III (Long Term Follow-up)
The Supported Recovery Level is the least intensive of services, allowing an individual to receive ongoing supportive services which again, assist the client in sustaining therapeutic gains made in treatment Level I and rehabilitation Level II. Supported recovery services are appropriate for persons who have completed primary treatment, community based rehabilitation or a residential level of services but need continuing services to maintain sobriety and deal with situations which might otherwise lead to relapse.
