Outpatient Program

Gulf Coast Center provides a comprehensive outpatient program for individuals who are working towards achieving sobriety and a long term recovery. Our counselors provide both individual and group counseling, working with the client to formulate an individualized treatment plan that is reflective of the client’s needs. As clients continue to work through their recovery, issues such as housing, mental health, relationship issues, spirituality and mindfulness are addressed within the outpatient program. Clients are also strongly encouraged to attend outside Self Help meetings to continue to embrace and grow their support system. Clients are provided with the tools throughout the outpatient program to continue to identify a relapse prevention plan, sober supports, and a community network. In order to accommodate clients, we offer outpatient during the morning and evening. If clients are referred to our Intensive Outpatient program, they will be required to attend group three times a week, for a total of nine hours. Clients also may be admitted into our Supportive Outpatient program, which requires them to attend groups twice a week, for a total of six hours. Clients at both the intensive outpatient and supportive outpatient also attend individual counseling and can attend peer recovery support groups.
