Located six miles north of downtown Orlando, Florida in the small, affluent city of Winter Park, Choices Counseling Center is a treatment facility that specializes in the care of clients struggling with alcohol and substance use disorders, eating disorders, surface addictions and co-occurring mental illnesses like depression, anxiety and OCD. In addition, Choices also offers couples, marital and family counseling services. Founded in 1985 by the late Maureen Traynor, an LMHC and family therapist, Choices Counseling believes treating the root causes of the addiction is the best, most effective strategy for a sustainable, long-term recovery. To this end, Choices curates individualized treatment plans that integrate an array of therapeutic methods. The facility primarily offers outpatient individual, group and family therapy. While the 12-step recovery method is utilized, medication management is not a component of the programming.
Treatment and Staff
At Choices, a caring, supportive environment and personal growth are as integral to recovery as therapy. Client commitment is key, and individuals are expected to take responsibility for their treatment. The facility offers completely individualized treatment programming tailored to the specific needs of the client as outlined by an intake assessment. Through this evaluation, the behavioral and physical roots of the addiction are found. Choices utilizes a multi-faceted approach to care that integrates an array of therapeutic methods including individual and group therapy, family therapy, marital therapy, a range of specialty groups, an extended care program, relapse prevention, the 12-step method and psychodrama to gain wisdom through acting out events of the past.
Clients in the extended care program benefit from long-term outpatient treatment comparable to traditional, residential care. The facility provides around-the-clock support and therapy five days a week. The extended care program is ideal for clients that either cannot commit to residential treatment or for those transitioning back into regular life from an inpatient program. Clients are able to receive treatment while remaining at home and continuing to work. In addition to therapy, the community approach provides training for a range of life skills including finances, nutrition, sober living and life scheduling. Also, clients are encouraged to work, attend school or volunteer while in the program.
The Choices Counseling team is comprised of mental health counselors, MFTS, psychotherapists and a mental health counseling intern. The facility does not offer medication management, as there is no physician or psychiatrist on staff.
In addition to the extended care program, Choices offers weekend programming and a five-day intensive.
