Adult Behavioral Health & Substance Abuse Programs
Everyone has their own story. Many times they aren’t the fairy tales we read as children. Disappointment, conflict, illness, divorce and death are all part of our life script, and can be difficult to overcome. At Starting Point, we help adults write stories that guide them through a healing process and onto a healthy path.
Our team of certified addiction counselors and licensed therapists help guide this process through individual and group counseling at our Yulee and Hilliard locations, as well as medication management when necessary.
Individual and Family Therapy
Our counseling programs are designed to meet the needs of those who are experiencing mental, emotional, or behavioral issues. Services are provided by either Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Registered Counselor Interns or Master's Level Certified Addiction Professionals.
This program helps understanding of children’s behavior and teaches discipline techniques for handling conflict and using appropriate discipline.
Learn skills to manage negative emotions through this 8-week program. Adults will take part in group discussion and role-playing.
Co-Occurring Disorder Program
Adults with both substance abuse and a mental health disorder will learn how to recognize and cope with the two conditions.
Substance Abuse and Recovery
Individual and group therapy focuses on substance use disorders and their impact on the individual and their families. Our programs include intervention, outpatient, medication assisted treatment and our women's program.
- Intervention: Our intervention program is designed for adults experiencing a first-time arrest for DUI and other drug offenses. The program includes monthly individual and weekly group counseling.
- Outpatient: This program is designed to assist individuals in achieving abstinence from substances which have been negatively impacting their ability to live their best life. Our focus is on teaching healthy alternatives to coping with stress, addressing co-occurring mental health issues, resolving underlying traumatic experiences which can lead to continued substance use.
- Medication Assisted Treatment for Opiate and/or Alcohol Dependence: Starting Point has a unique clinical program to help people recover from an addiction to opiates and/or alcohol. The program utilizes a medical approach that includes psychiatric care, individual counseling, substance use treatment groups and community support. Individuals in this program will be prescribed either Suboxone or Vivitrol to assist them in their recovery.
- Women’s Substance Abuse Program: This program is designed for women who have an identified substance use or co-occurring disorder. Services include individual, family and group therapy, parenting classes and psychiatric care.
Mental Health Court Program
The Mental Health Court program diverts clients out of the justice system and provides individuals the opportunity to undergo treatment and avoid criminal prosecution. Issues specific to clients involved with the Mental Health Court system are addressed in the Living Well group.
