Jacksonville • Miami • Tampa • Orlando • Delray Beach • Ft Lauderdale • Port St. Lucie • South Florida • Gulf Coast • Panhandle
Being such a large market within the realm of addiction and alcoholism recovery services, Florida has become known as one of the most prominent regions nationwide with respect to its broad range and overall quality of addiction counselors and therapists as well as psychologists, psychiatrists and other types of physicians specializing within the scope of addiction and alcoholism treatment services.
Many therapists actually specialize in marriage and family issues (MFT’s) or grief and trauma therapy while also having a broad skill set and background in treating those with chemical dependency issues. Since the process of treating a client with addiction, alcoholism and/or co-occurring mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc) involves addressing the illness on numerous levels within the brain, it is critically important to work with a therapist and/or within a therapy group in which you feel a sense of emotional security enabling you to honestly open up to the treating professional.
Some common forms of therapy processes include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Guided Imagery. Among Florida residents, there is a major distinction between what is considered to be southern and northern Florida. In terms of major cities and regions throughout the State of Florida, and with respect to how the reviews and information on this page are categorized, those regions consist of: Palm Beach County, Delray Beach, Miami, Hollywood, Ft Lauderdale, Tampa Bay, Southern Florida, Northern Florida, Boca Raton, The Gulf Coast Region, Jacksonville, FL and others.
Most therapists, counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists do accept some forms of health insurance. Some of these independent treatment professionals offer, or can refer you to, advanced clinical services such as neurofeedback and neuroplasticity which, in some cases are not covered by insurance and are therefore only offered on a private-pay basis. A few important questions to consider prior to choosing a therapists would be:
- What is their background of experience with people seeking in help in situations such as yours?
- Do they promote 12-step recovery or any other specific type of outside support groups for those with addiction or alcoholism?
- Can they provide any reviews or testimonials from other past clients having gone through situations similar to yours?
- What type of therapies do they offer, such as: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Guided Imagery, etc?

OVERALL EXPERIENCE (1-5): 5
I met Cali when I was in treatment for substance and alcohol abuse. Little did I know that this wasn’t my only problem. Under Cali’s care, I learned about addiction and even more about myself. Her approach with me from day one was forward, non judgmental and most importantly consistent. I credit Cali with not just the foundation on which I have built 22 months of sobriety, but with opening the door to life changing events. I came to her a strung out little girl and stand here today a strong, confident woman due to her guidance. She helped me see who I was and who I was capable of being. My true self. Outside of abusing alcohol and drugs for over 20 years, I had also made poor life altering choices I could not forgive myself for, had put myself in situations I could not forgive others for and was extremely compulsive with the manner I consumed food. I never, ever, believed I could live the care free life I live today. Was not even a possibility. However, following Cali’s guidance, participating in specific excercises and being completely honest in our sessions together, I was able to make huge moves with my life in such a short period of time. And also able to maintain my physical, spiritual and mental health today by continually practicing the lessons I have learned from her. I truly wish I could express in great detail all she has done for me, my life, but I think the fact that I am sitting here on a Monday night, after a long day at work, expressing my gratitude with words (albeit with a few possible typos) speaks for itself. 2 years ago I would have been incoherent, scrubbing an already clean kitchen, crying over what has been done to me and what I have done for others. That was my yesterday and because of Cali Estes, I can enjoy my today and look forward to the possibilities of my tomorrow.
