Focus One, Inc. is an outpatient treatment facility offering holistic services to those with substance abuse issues and mental health disorders. Established in 1989 by Dr. Patricia Noll, an acupuncture physician, licensed mental health counselor and certified addiction professional, treatment programs are a combination of her experience and credentials. Treatment consists of individual, family and group therapy sessions along with acupuncture, herbal remedies and hypnosis. All services are available at FOI’s treatment facility in Clearwater, Florida.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment at FOI begins with an initial drug and alcohol assessment in order to determine each client’s needs. During this time, an individualized treatment plan is made. If the client is in need of more intensive support such as an inpatient program, referrals can be made to other facilities. There is no psychiatric medication management available on-site.
FOI provides individual and group therapy sessions on a weekly basis. Group therapy is held on Mondays through Thursday with sessions both in the evenings and the afternoons to accommodate work and school schedules. Attendance and frequency of group sessions depend on each client’s needs, though clients have the option to attend all available groups if interested.
Groups are usually co-ed and consist of 15 to 20 people at a time. Topics discussed include relapse prevention, addiction as disease, self-esteem, co-dependency, over-eating, anxiety, spirituality and anger management. As a supplement to group therapy, clients can schedule individual sessions that last an hour to an hour and a half Monday through Friday from 1:30 to 9 pm, excluding group counseling hours. These sessions are used to set goals, monitor progress and offer more intimate support. Family members are welcome to take part in individual sessions as needed.
Participation in a 12-step program is not a mandatory at FOI though AA/NA meetings are recommended. There are no on-site meetings available but staff members can refer clients to local meetings in the community upon request.
Staff members at FOI include LADCs, an acupuncture physician and licensed mental health counselors. Treatment modalities include traditional talk therapy sessions using evidence-based modalities like CBT and DBT.
Clients at FOI have access to acupuncture, herbal remedies and hypnosis. These services are scheduled as needed and are offered on an individual basis. Treatment is also available to court-ordered clients including those with DUIs through the same group sessions available to voluntary clients.
At Focus One, Inc., adults in early recovery are offered a combination of traditional therapeutic and holistic treatment services for mental health and substance abuse disorders. FOI focuses on addressing the person as a whole through therapy, acupuncture, herbal remedies and hypnosis. While clients in need of a more intensive program may find this basic outpatient care lacks the structure they require, those seeking flexible treatment using a variety of modalities should find FOI a good fit.
