The Center has been providing counseling services, including substance abuse therapy and anger management education to the Tampa Bay Area since 1973. We have offices in both Hillsborough (Tampa) and Pinellas (Clearwater) County.
We provide both group and individual therapy for clients who seek treatment in a community-based substance abuse outpatient environment. This allows individuals in recovery to maintain their personal and occupational commitment while receiving the treatment they require to recover from alcohol and substance dependence and abuse.
Treatment formats are individually tailored to match each client's unique needs and circumstances. One-on-one counseling, individual and group therapy formats are offered, or may be combined to provide the most effective therapeutic approach to complete recovery.
As described on our treatment philosophies page, our unique approach combines Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Systems-Oriented Family Counseling. One of the main differences with this multi-modality approach is that CRL does not use lables such as "addict" or "alcoholic", rather we look at the person as a whole and how their beliefs have effected ones behaviors, and ultimately, ones overall life functioning.
Our multi-modal approach will allow you to achieve the control and discipline over alcoholism and drug addiction you seek, while achieving additional personal goals in relationships, occupational management, social and recreational functioning, and self-regulation of mood and mental outlook. Our approach offers both additional treatment to 12-step models, or an alternative therapeutic approach for those clients who have not found the 12-step approach in congruence with their lifestyle or philosophy.
