Many of our neighbors need more than a hot meal or emergency rent help. Sometimes talking and being heard inspires hope for a future that otherwise looks unimaginably bleak. Manna Ministries is committed to restoration: helping our neighbors get their lives back on track, re-routing their lives to healthier and happier directions. Our inpatient and outpatient social services reunify families, help the unemployed find work, and move the addicted out of the trap of drugs or alcohol.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Substance abuse always interferes with a person’s ability to function and live normally. Sometimes it can be managed with regular outpatient meetings once or twice a week. Sometimes it is so intrusive in a person’s life that the individual needs to be in a residential rehabilitation program. Other times, however, individuals are able to manage their lives without entering a residential rehabilitation program but they need a greater level of treatment and support than regular outpatient treatment. This individual can truly benefit from our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Our IOP is designed to assist clients who are in need of a higher level of treatment services than that which is normally provided in a standard outpatient program.

In general, the IOP is open to adolescents and adults. Clients in the IOP will be living independently or with support, and will be in need of intensive support and treatment regarding substance abuse.

Clients will be seen for 9 hours per week, at a rate of 3 hours per day for 3 days for group treatment. We anticipate that each IOP client will be seen for individual treatment at least one hour bi-weekly.

The program is designed to last for 12 weeks. At the end of the program the client will be assessed to determine his/her level of progress and further treatment needs. Once this assessment is complete, the client will either graduate or be eligible to repeat the program for additional work. If the client is ready to graduate from IOP, referral(s) will be made as necessary for the client to insure the client’s continued success. Examples of possible referrals would be standard outpatient counseling, AA, NA, or other support groups, to name a few.

Clients will be expected to complete the Session Attendance Log so that we can verify they have received IOP services.

Each client will review his/her treatment progress with an IOP clinician on a monthly basis. This will allow client and staff to adjust treatment goals, objectives, and strategies as needed.

Topics to be addressed during the 12 week IOP include: relapse prevention, emotion regulation, identifying values/purpose/meaning, changing behaviors, communication skills, and others that may be identified as appropriate and necessary.

If you or someone you know would like to register, or get further information, please contact us at 942-6387.


Case Management Services

Our Case Management Program’s goal is to solidify treatment accomplished through our other programs. We expect the program will include Manna Outpatient Counseling Services, the Soup Kitchen, and our Food Pantry participants. Our hope is to establish working relationships with our clients and guests while they are in the various programs to develop a more holistic set of services and support. Community integration is one of the most challenging aspects of treatment. Case Management Services will allow us to continue assisting our clients and guests as they move into more independent living settings. Many of our guests and clients find transitioning back into the community to be scary, overwhelming, and unstructured to the point of causing stress, fear, and even relapse. It is our hope to bridge the gap between structured treatment and life after treatment.

Case Management Services (CMS) through Manna are available to adults over the age of 17 who are covered by MaineCare and reside in the greater Bangor area. We work closely with other agencies and clinicians to plan and implement the action steps needed for clients to achieve their goals.
