How do you know if our IOP is right for you? Here are the basics!

Those who have had some prior exposure to treatment and/or recovery. If you have never been to treatment before or have never engaged in a formal recovery practice before, you are probably better served by our colleagues at Wake Forest Baptist’s IOP or Fellowship Hall’s IOP. Those programs are geared towards those who are new to treatment and recovery, while our IOP is geared towards those who know they have addiction, know they need recovery, and want to learn more skills to sustain recovery going forward.

9 hours of group work and 1 hour of individual therapy with the goal of strengthening recovery skills, knowledge and practice. Monitoring for abstinence. Monthly multi-family group.

Full Life Counseling – 983 Mar Don Dr., Winston-Salem, NC 27104

Group on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 6pm-9pm for 12 or more weeks.

Individual sessions scheduled weekly with primary therapist. If struggling, your counselor will recommend having your individual sessions on Tuesdays or Fridays, so you have more days of support.

If you are really, REALLY struggling, the clinical team will recommend adding recovery coaching on the 5th day of the week so that you have even more support. Note that recovery coaching fees are not included in your flat rate IOP fee.

Even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there.

Meet Our IOP Specialists

David Spillman, CADC, Intensive Outpatient Coordinator

One of the most important choices I have made in life was to surrender the fight with addiction and ask for help. With support from my wife, family, friends, and employers, I went to a 28-day treatment center. With renewed hope, reduced guilt and shame, and a defined program of action, my life slowly began to change for the better. My health, marriage, career, finances, spirituality, and joy improved.

James H. Tunstall, CADC, DBTC

I feel passionate about helping you create the life you want. As a person in long-term recovery from addiction, my focus is helping you identify and resolve the blocks that may stand between you and your goals. I understand the challenges you face when coming to terms with your addiction and I am dedicated to helping people like you find a better way to live.

Ginny H. Mills, MAEd, LCMHC-S, LCAS, CCS, Clinical Director

It has been my privilege for 30+ years to walk with individuals and families affected by drug use – their own or that of someone they love. Although I'm credentialed as an "addiction specialist," a better description of me would be "hope specialist." I help frustrated, exhausted, and terrified parents find answers and hope, despite watching their children spiral downward because of drug use. They know that nothing else is working, but they refuse to give up. I work collaboratively with parents while also educating, equipping, and inspiring parents to respond wisely (rather than to react instinctively) to their drug-using son or daughter.

Anna Fleig, MDiv, MA, LCMHC-A, LCAS-A

Have you ever felt like you weren’t being heard? That others don’t really understand what you are going through? Or perhaps they do listen, only to give you unsolicited advice in an attempt to be helpful. As a person who has created change in my own life through the benefit of counseling, I know how important it is for someone to truly listen and help you discover choices that work best for you and your loved ones.

Marlena L. Del Hierro, MDiv, MA, LCMHC-A, LCAS-A

Have you read self-help books in an effort to change things in your life? Or maybe you’ve sought the counsel of people close to you but still struggle with finding a solution. Perhaps you haven’t consulted anyone or anything because you feel embarrassed or think you should be able to do it by yourself? If this sounds familiar, I invite you to work with me. I am a relational counselor and am open, warm, nonjudgmental, and guarantee laughter in sessions.

Charlie Lawson, Client Services Representative / Recovery Coach

At Full Life Counseling, I serve as both the Client Services Representative and as a Recovery Coach. In my first role, I work to match individuals with counselors on our team who will be a good fit for their needs. I also help guide them to resources in the Winston-Salem, NC and the surrounding areas. I handle all scheduling in office and am the person to call if you have any questions about our services, need directions, etc. In my second role, I work with people in shaping and growing their life in recovery.
