Addiction Recovery Begins Here

Counseling of Southwest Florida provides substance abuse and mental health treatment programs in Naples, Florida.

Our programs allow our clients to receive a comprehensive and effective treatment experience while continuing to live at home and within their own community. Intensive outpatient treatment is perfect for those who do not have the resources or flexibility to take time away from work, school, or family matters, but still need regular substance abuse and mental health treatment.

In our humble opinion, many treatment centers have shown poor results in effectively treating addiction in recent years. At our Southwest Florida counseling center, we have developed a clinical model that perfectly complements the intensive outpatient treatment and standard outpatient framework. Our clinical model is our answer to this growing issue; we can do better.

Our Treatment Program in Naples, Florida


The treatment of addiction and mental health issues requires the identification of the root. We don’t just alleviate uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms for a short-term solution. Instead, we identify the root causes of your suffering, and treat your mental, emotional, and physical well-being, all of which are the primary targets of a substance use problem.


It is our attention to every detail of the treatment process, from admissions to successful completion, that makes the difference. When you work with our team of substance abuse and mental health counselors, you’re armed with people who are passionate about helping you live a better-quality life.


Our clinical model utilizes evidenced-based practices, proven to overcome the problems they were developed to treat through extensive research. The Counseling of Southwest Florida programs are not a one-size-fits-all solution to treat substance abuse or mental health issues. We understand the depth of such issues and thus conduct extensive assessments to develop individualized programs that will work for you.

The Counseling of Southwest Florida clinical model is only as strong as the hardworking team behind it. That’s why we’re equipped with a team of professional and effective addiction and mental health practitioners to apply our clinical model. At Counseling of Southwest Florida, we have meticulously searched to employ only the best therapists and specialists, whose passion and clinical effectiveness are only equal to the model they employ.

We believe it is this combination that truly sets the Counseling of Southwest Florida programs apart from others.

What Is the Length of Your Program?

One of the most consistent research findings related to effective substance abuse treatment outcomes is the length of treatment. The longer a client can stay in the treatment process, the more likely it is they will achieve lasting change from their substance use problems.

Our complete Counseling of Southwest Florida program model consists of 3 phases, lasting up to 24 weeks. We encourage everyone to commit and engage through all 3 phases, as this will truly give you the best chance at success.

Phase 1: Intensive Outpatient Phase

Phase 1 lasts 8 weeks with 10 hours of group and individual therapy per week. This is where the bulk of our clinical model is delivered. Clients become indoctrinated in the process of discovering the nature of their addiction and are given the skills and strategies to overcome it

Phase 2: Outpatient Phase of Treatment

Phase 2 lasts 4 weeks and consists of 3-4 hours of group and individual therapy per week. In this phase, our clients continue to implement strategies learned in treatment with a decreasing amount of clinical support, encouraging personal responsibility and interdependent recovery.

Phase 3: Aftercare Phase of Treatment

Phase 3 lasts up to 12 weeks and consists of 1 to 2 hours of group and/or individual therapy. This phase is characterized by practice. Clients in phase 3 are practicing recovery and life skills necessary to recover. Phase 3 clients receive weekly therapeutic support and guidance from their counselors in conjunction with the support they are receiving from their natural support system.

Successful Completion of Treatment
