Addiction Recovery Begins Here

What sets our counseling program apart from other therapy centers is the consistent adherence to a comprehensive clinical model and curriculum. The clinical model has been developed by the founder, Casey Portner LMHC, CAP, of Counseling of Southwest Florida. He has over 13 years of clinical experience in helping patients successfully overcome substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.

Here at Counseling of Southwest Florida, we believe our clinical model effectively captures the core elements and change concepts necessary to overcome addiction and co-occurring disorders. Our counseling center in Naples teaches these proven concepts and provides experiential learning opportunities for clients to practice and transform them into effective habits. Our client’s ability to practice these newly acquired skills allows them to overcome addiction and achieve wellness and overall health in many areas of their lives.


Our clinical model utilizes evidenced-based therapeutic strategies throughout the healing process, heavily relying on cognitive behavioral therapy specific to substance abuse, anxiety, and depression. Our clinical model is also informed by experiential and action-based elements necessary for recovery and change, with clients participating in activities and experiences outside of therapy, which is a process proven to be necessary and vital for a successful outcome.

Our recovery support specialists will guide the direction of each patient’s clinical plan and gauge the overall progress the patient has made throughout their journey. It is our belief that those who completely give themselves to this counseling process will not only achieve recovery from their addictions, they will experience a mental, emotional, and physical wellness not formerly achieved.
