Levels Of Care

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: YCSP\'s Intensive Outpatient Program is available through for individuals throughout the community that are in need and suffering from addiction. Homelessness is not a requirement to access treatment. This is a 6-week program utilizing both individual and group counseling. Additionally, these services, like all YCSP programs, are available for people with and without a payor source. There is Free Care available and IOP & DEEP Program Manager, Kate Meredith, LCPC, LADC, CCS, is working on a a 6-month Aftercare service for those that have completed IOP. Inpatient: In the heart of Portland, located on Mellen St, The Serenity House is the longest residential treatment program in Portland. YCSP merged with Serenity House in 2012 and they continue to build upon the reputation of providing accessible and high quality addiction treatment. With YCSP and Serenity becoming one, they have been able to provide services much more efficiently and effectively, which continues to be a guiding principle of YCSP. This old farmhouse is owned by YCSP and provides 2 permanent housing rooms and 12 residential treatment beds, for a total of 14 males. Located in West Newfield, Maine, The Farm provides individual bedrooms with community living space. Residents interested in the residential treatment program must have a substance abuse diagnosis and an interest in continued treatment. The Farm offers a working, therapeutic environment with gardens, animals, and job responsibilities to help clients learn new skills which all work together to enhance the recovery process. The 2 permanent beds will be filled by individuals who have graduated from the residential treatment program, and who are interested in continuing to reside at the Farm while they seek a more permanent housing solution. Like Serenity House, YCSP\'s other residential treatment facility, individuals seeking placement at the Farm will connect with the Farm directly for admission requirements and screenings. Aftercare Support: Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn\'t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Clinical Services

Animal Therapy: Animal therapy (aka pet therapy or animal-assisted therapy) can be very healing, as it allows patients to bond with animals, who give unconditional love. This is particularly useful for those who suffered trauma by the hands of people, who may be able to trust and form closer attachments to animals than humans at certain stages of rehabilitation. 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. Life Skills: Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.


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. Mental Health and Substance Abuse: A combined mental health and substance abuse rehab has the staff and resources available to handle individuals with both mental health and substance abuse issues. It can be challenging to determine where a specific symptom stems from (a mental health issue or an issue related to substance abuse), so mental health and substance abuse professionals are helpful in detangling symptoms and keeping treatment on track. Opioid Addiction: Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.
