Calusa Recovery is the leading men’s drug and alcohol outpatient rehab treatment center in Fort Myers and the surrounding areas throughout Lee County. We believe substance abuse and drug addiction treatment can and should go far beyond the most basic goals of treatment centers to help men overcome drug abuse and prevent relapse.

As part of Calusa’s outpatient drug rehab programs, our passionate founders, licensed therapists, client advocates and local adventure guides form a team dedicated to helping each client become the man he wants to be and create the positive change he wants to see in his life. We work with each client to develop ongoing, personalized drug and alcohol treatment plans to improve every aspect of his life through long-term sobriety and discovering the power within his own body, mind and spirit.

Our intensive outpatient care and other outpatient addiction treatment programs offer individual and group therapies and therapeutic interventions that include coping strategies as well as holistic treatment services to ensure drug and alcohol relapse prevention.

Our Outpatient Therapies for Men Include:

One standout component of Calusa Recovery’s outpatient services is our recovery coaching program.

Recovery coaching pairs outpatient rehab clients with a certified recovery coach: an experienced, specialized mentor who uses tailored methods and a personalized treatment plan to support a client throughout his road to recovery.

Recover coaches can provide an alcohol or drug rehabilitation client with:

  • Personal accountability
  • Resources within the larger community
  • Objective feedback and affirmation of progress made
  • Assistance creating a personal action plan
  • Tips and guidance in creating more beneficial thoughts, beliefs and behaviors
  • Licensed therapists are available around the clock and always accessible through virtual chat

Sometimes, a recovery coach is someone who’s been through alcohol recovery himself, enabling him to better understand and offer insight into the complex emotions and deeply ingrained habits a client may face.

In fact, Calusa Recovery’s founders, Wilbur Smith and Stuart Karp, are coaches themselves and began their careers with their own journeys through recovery. As a result, they advocate for Calusa’s clients throughout the community and understand how important rebuilding a man’s close relationships with family, friends and the wider community can be to lasting recovery.

The therapists and coaches men will meet through Calusa’s General Outpatient Program (GOP) understand that the trials and victories a man has and will encounter throughout his recovery are unique to him. However, we also believe every man can benefit from a supportive, like-minded community and from encouraging others who are going through drug or alcohol rehab at the same time.

Calusa Recovery’s outpatient drug rehab programs and coaches incorporate diverse, well-studied methods into treatment that are designed to not only improve but maximize the quality of a man’s life. Some of the tools our outpatient rehab facility coaches and therapists provide include recovery coaching, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and other holistic treatment methods.

Calusa Recovery’s outpatient rehab programs focus on the whole of a man’s life, with the aim of not only freeing him from his addictions but bettering his relationships, mind, body and spirit. We believe outpatient rehab should elicit personal growth in all areas, leading to ongoing personal development that instills a man’s life with purpose, meaning, and fulfillment — all while making this synonymous with sobriety.

Through neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), coaches and therapists at Calusa Recovery help clients realize the power of their thoughts in creating personal, lasting change. The idea is that fundamental shifts in a person’s thoughts can effectively and quickly lead to intentional, positive changes in his life.

More specifically, NLP helps men in recovery identify the patterns of thought, language and physical behaviors that aren’t serving them to then create new and more beneficial ways of thinking, speaking and behaving that do.

NLP Techniques and Models May Include:

  • Learning to recognize the inner maps or guides an individual may have created to navigate the world but that don’t reflect reality
  • Studying and adapting successful people’s thoughts and behaviors as a model
  • Hypnotherapy
  • Helping those with a substance use disorder understand how their senses and perceptions affect their experience of the world

Ultimately, through NLP, Calusa coaches aim to provide men receiving outpatient treatment with life-changing, empowering techniques that can result in increased confidence, more authentic relating with others and the power to change the habits that no longer serve them.

Along with individual and group therapy sessions, Calusa Recovery’s outpatient drug rehab program includes holistic treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction stem from and affect many unseen parts of our clients’ bodies, minds and spirits, and holistic treatment methods can contribute to an improved sense of overall wellness.

Additionally, because a person’s emotional, mental and physical health are all connected within one body, holistic treatment methods allow for improvement or healing within one area of a man’s life to have a rippling effect into others.

Holistic Treatment Methods

We incorporate a range of holistic treatment methods as a supplemental treatment to drug or alcohol addiction therapies. These holistic treatment program methods may include:

  • Yoga, meditation and breathwork
  • Personal nutrition plans
  • Reiki

Benefits of Holistic Treatment

Holistic treatment methods may have profound effects on clients as part of their overall outpatient care. These treatments may help to lower overall stress on the body and mind, help a man find a renewed sense of purpose or meaning to life through a new or deepened spiritual practice or contribute to his overall physical wellness. Any of these positive changes can, as we hope, bring forth a sense of peace and brighter perspective for any man undergoing substance abuse treatment.
