Adult Services

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 Certified Addiction Professionals.
Women’s Empowerment

This open group helps women find balance and set healthy boundaries in relationships. Here they increase self-esteem and learn to be assertive in healthy ways.

Anger Management

Learn skills to manage negative emotions through this 8-week program. Adults will take part in group discussion and role-playing.

Positive Parenting

Living Well

Issues specific to clients involved with the Mental Health Court system are addressed in this group. Individuals in this program go through treatment outside of the justice system, but with court monitoring. It helps clients transition to community mental health settings for continued care.

Opioid Dependence/Suboxone Program

Starting Point has a unique clinical program to help people recover from an addiction to opiates. It is designed for those with mild to moderate drug addiction which is appropriate for outpatient withdrawal. It also helps people with a history of relapse. The program uses a medical approach that includes detox, counseling, support groups and prescribing of Suboxone therapy.

Substance Abuse and Recovery

Individual and group therapy focuses on substance abuse disorders and the impact on families. It includes a program for adults who have been arrested for DUI and other drug offenses. Detox is available on an outpatient basis.

Mental Health Court Program

The Mental Health Court program diverts clients out of the justice system and reduces costs by more than $15,000 per year per client. This cost-effective approach gives individuals the opportunity to undergo treatment and avoid criminal prosecution.

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.
