Addiction treatment comes in many different forms designed to meet the needs of individuals dealing with the disease of addiction. Some individuals looking for drug rehab or alcohol rehab may need strict oversight, while others require structure but need to return to their home or maintain working. One program that offers flexibility while delivering the necessary counseling and addiction treatment is an intensive outpatient program.

At TruHealing Baltimore, our intensive outpatient program, or IOP, is designed to provide individuals struggling with substance use disorder or addiction with the support necessary to begin taking the steps towards independence. Whether clients are stepping down their treatment or entering IOP as an initial step, our team will create an individualized plan based on individuals’ specific needs during early recovery.

The Therapy Plan in Our Intensive Outpatient Program

Men with notepadsWhen you begin at TruHealing Baltimore’s IOP, you will learn how to use the tools and skills discovered in treatment with the real life situations and stresses you encounter during early recovery. Through individual and group therapy, clients learn how to take what they learn and discuss and practice it in their homes, work, school, and community.

For many individuals, intensive outpatient therapy groups are an ongoing and reliable resource. Group members will encounter the same situations, make the same mistakes, and find the same successes. Watching and helping peers, clients can have meaningful breakthroughs and find fulfillment. Along with group meetings, individuals will meet with our therapists and counselors on an individual basis as well. These sessions will help provide accountability and ensure that clients take substantial, healthy steps towards taking control of their lives.

Counseling and Therapy

During an IOP, individuals have the opportunity to begin taking complete control of their life back from addiction. We will be there to help you take each step, developing positive life skills along the way. At TruHealing Baltimore, we will help you set clear goals and support as you begin regaining independence. Our therapists will work with you to determine the healthiest steps as you begin returning to regular life. We will work with you at every step to ensure you have the support and backing you need during early recovery.

Part of this means getting an individual’s family involved to address issues contributing to addiction and help the family learn how to be supportive in a healthy manner. We believe it is important to involve loved ones in recovery when it is healthy and appropriate. It is part of our philosophy to begin healing the family as well as each individual in our care. These family therapy sessions will help educate all family members on strategies to promote long-term recovery, set healthy boundaries, and fix your unhealthy relationships.

During an individual’s time in our intensive outpatient program, loved ones will also have access to family support groups to help them interact with other families with the same goals. These groups focus on psychological education and healthy coping mechanisms so that families can become a resource for long-term recovery.

Stacy Decker
Director of Operations

I joined the team at TruHealing Hagerstown in 2020. Before starting my current position, I worked as an administrator in outpatient surgical care, and then joined an ambulatory surgery center development company as Regional Director.  I enjoy using my medical background and business knowledge—in conjunction with my personal experiences in recovery—to encourage and support clients seeking treatment.

Abstinence and recovery are an integral part of my life. Being able to help other people who are suffering with a substance use disorder has been a blessing. TruHealing Hagerstown is the only inpatient facility in our community to help people suffering with substance use disorders. It’s incredibly rewarding to give back to my community.

As we continue to grow Amatus Health, the need to stay competitive and differentiate ourselves in unique ways is crucial. Building creative approaches to reach more people will take our company to new heights. This is why I am pleased to announce that we are officially rebranding. Our new national name, TruHealing Addiction & Mental Health Treatment, will eventually replace Amatus Recovery Centers.

You may be asking, “Why are we doing this?” This new name will give us national uniformity and help brand ourselves as a whole, which will be done in phases. You will still see our existing facility names co-branded with TruHealing for the time being.

Healing is what we do. Everyone who comes through our doors is in a moment of profound struggle in their lives. We support them through a life-changing process of healing and recovery, and they leave our facilities changed. This new name is a representation of that process. As mentioned above, it also allows us to have a national brand, which will make us a recognizable name in the addiction and mental health field.

In summation, these changes present an excellent opportunity for our organization to develop our mission, vision, and purpose. I look forward to prosperous growth as we head in a new and positive direction.
