Coral Bay Recovery’s Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to be flexible, to accommodate the needs of adults who are currently working, plan to obtain employment as part of their recovery journey, or are pursuing their educational goals. The 8- to 10-week program comprises group therapy sessions, as well as weekly individual, one-on-one sessions with each client. Psychiatric evaluations, medication management, case management services, and local sober living/housing are also available.
When clients complete our Intensive Outpatient Program, they have the option to step down to our Outpatient Program (OP), which comprises 1 to 3 group therapy sessions and one individual, private therapy session per week. This phase typically lasts two weeks, based on individualized progress and needs, as clients prepare to discharge from treatment.
At Coral Bay Recovery, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Learn the difference between being in recovery and just being sober.
- Learn a variety of coping skills and tools that will eliminate the need to turn to mood- or mind-altering substances.
- Identify your relapse triggers and risks and develop a comprehensive relapse prevention plan.
When you arrive at Coral Bay, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan with goals and objectives that can help you overcome your addiction to drugs or alcohol, as well as other problems that may be coming between you and your life’s goals.
Coral Bay Recovery’s program offers convenient therapy groups that are designed for busy working adults and students, and take place on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings beginning at 6:00 pm at our office in Lighthouse Point, Florida. (Note: Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are offering both telehealth and on-site groups at this time.) Groups are limited in size, for a more personalized, effective therapeutic experience.
In group therapy, clients can:
- Increase their awareness and begin to understand how addiction impacts all facets of their lives.
- Understand and challenge defense mechanisms, negative thought and behavior patterns, and other ways that addiction maintains itself.
- Explore and identify relapse triggers in order to see a relapse coming well before a drink or drug is picked up, and develop a solid relapse prevention plan to head it off.
- Explore underlying problems that lead to the abuse of substances.
- Create an arsenal of tools and skills to handle life stressors, such as divorce, grief and loss, relationship issues, job loss, and other transitions.
- Explore and learn to cope with co-occurring disorders, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and others.
- Begin to use outside resources, such as 12-step, SMART Recovery, Refuge Recovery, or another similar peer-led group, and develop a sober support network to increase accountability and maintain long-term recovery. Regardless of the program or group chosen, connecting with others in recovery is key to long-term success.
Each client’s individual therapy session takes place once per week, when groups are not scheduled. Sessions are 50 minutes in length and take place by appointment only.
During their weekly individual therapy sessions, clients will have more one-on-one time with their primary therapist, in order to concentrate more deeply on treatment goals or address any personal issues or concerns they don’t feel comfortable sharing in a group setting.

Psychiatric Assessment/Medication Management
Initial Psychiatric Evaluations, follow-up appointments, medication management and other services are provided on an individualized, appointment-only basis by our Board-Certified Physician, Dr. Daphne Dorce. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), which may include the use of Naltrexone, Vivitrol or Suboxone, is also available on an individualized basis.
Random Drug Testing (Breathalyzer and Urinalysis)
This invaluable part of the treatment program not only helps to keep clients safe, but adds a layer of accountability that actually makes many clients feel more reassured and successful. This tool also helps family members and others feel more confident that the clients in our treatment program are safe and “doing the right thing” on a consistent basis. In other words, it provides peace of mind for all concerned, allowing everyone to focus on positive, lasting change.
