NorthStar Transitions offers Case Management services to clients enrolled in Day Treatment, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient Addiction Treatment Programs.
The Case Management aspect of the Program consists of pairing each client with a Case Manager whom they meet with while they are enrolled in outpatient treatment. Together the case manager and the client work on achieving goals and objectives outlined on their treatment plan, as well as the other goals and objectives of the client. The Case Manager will develop a Case Management service plan outlining processes and timeline of objectives. The Case Manager and client meet between 2-4 hours each week to work on the goals and objectives outlined on the service plan.
Typical Case Management goals and objectives include, but are not limited to:
- Resume and cover letter writing
- Job searching
- Meeting with academic advisors
- Processing school transfer documents
- Applying for admissions and/or financial aid
- Establishing ‘in-state’ residency

Case Management is a crucial component of the individualized addiction treatment services provided by NorthStar Transitions. Providing quality Case Management services to clients while they are still in treatment is crucial to their long-term success, not only in sobriety but in life. The ultimate goal of Case Management is to put clients on a clear path to work and/or school while they are still in treatment so that they have a solid foundation for their new life in sobriety upon discharge.
