Substance Use Services

Substance use services designed with real people in mind.

Deciding to get help with a substance use disorder can be the hardest part of recovery. Gulf Coast Center is ready to help. We provide education and screening, individual, group and peer counseling, skills training, and inpatient and outpatient treatment.

We coordinate patient care activities with other partner community agencies in order to provide well-rounded care. Our goal is to know and understand the needs and preferences of those we serve. Communicating and providing care at the right time with the right partners helps increase safe, proper, and effective care. Services provided are tailored to each person’s needs.

If you, a friend, or a family member needs help with substance use, call 800-643-0967 to learn more about how Gulf Coast Center can help.


The OSAR (Outreach, Screening, Assessment and Referral) program provides screening and referral at no cost for anyone who needs to be screened to determine an appropriate level of care for substance use services. The screening identifies the person’s substance use, mental health and high risk behaviors. The person is referred to various care options, ranging from residential treatment, outpatient, supportive outpatient and peer recovery coaching.

All OSAR counselors are mobile and can provide services in the community. Clients can obtain a “walk in screening” at our three locations or can schedule a screening within a community setting.

To access services, please call  800-643-0967 or 409-944-4365, Monday-Friday, 8-5pm, to schedule a virtual screening.
