Introduction and Overview of a Mental Health Treatment Program

Mental health therapy in Fort Myers can look different depending on what you need to best help you recover. Some of the most common mental health treatment programs are:

Intensive therapy that involves clients staying at a facility 24/7 while receiving around-the-clock care through intensive therapy interventions and occasionally medication management.

Often known as a day hospitalization program. Provides clients with the intensive care and medication management found in hospital settings, while allowing clients to live at home to fulfill life, work, and school obligations.

Outpatient therapy treatment can vary depending on the level of support needed. Outpatient treatment can involve individual or group therapies that can incorporate coping skills, holistic care, and overall life balance.

Family therapy includes the client’s immediate support and family unit in their care. Family therapy can help clients work through dysfunctional family systems and offer ways for all members of the family unit to feel more understood and supported during the recovery journey.

Different levels of care and support are offered at Calusa Recovery, including the mental health therapies listed above, all tailored to your individual needs. Calusa Recovery offers a wide range of mental health programs in South Florida, from Fort Myers outpatient programs to intensive inpatient residential programs, including holistic therapies and adventure-based experiential therapies; everyone can receive the personalized level of unique mental health therapy needed to thrive.

    I’ve been in recovery for over a year now and have met a lot of people along the way. Stuart and Wilbur are genuine about wanting to help someone struggling with alcohol or drugs. Me being one of them. I’ve seen a few sober houses along the way and Calusa recovery is by far the best sober living I’ve come across. They show you how to have fun in recovery and live life sober. The houses they have are awesome and clean! Highly recommend them. It changed my life!

      Calusa Recovery was recommended to us as being a top sober living home. Meeting Stuart, Wilbur, and the impeccable house confirmed this to be true. Stuart and Wilbur are truly invested in all aspects of their clients’ recovery. We value their collaborative approach with clients and family.

        Calusa is a place that treats you like a real person with love and respect. They do outings together to have a great community environment. Calusa pushes you to be a responsible young man but does it in a way of caring and helping you find self love. Highly recommend for any young man wanting to take the next step to better himself and his future.
