Stewart-Marchman-Act Outpatient


Daytona Beach FloridaThe Basics

For over 50 years, Stewart-Marchman-Act has been providing substance abuse treatment for adults and adolescents in the communities surrounding Daytona Beach, Florida. SMA runs three gender-specific residential treatment programs as well as a standard outpatient track at its Palatka, St. Augustine, New Smyrna Beach, Deland and DeBary locations. It also has a detox facility at its Palatka County location, where clients stay an average of five days. Clients participate in traditional therapeutic sessions using evidence-based methods of treatment.

Treatment and Staff

Prospective clients should first call SMA’s Access Center where a representative determines the best treatment track and location for services. Outpatient clients are referred to their local program where they’ll receive an assessment. After the assessment, clinicians create a treatment plan that includes group therapy one to two times each week and individual therapy as-needed—usually once a week. The duration of the outpatient program is twelve weeks.

Group sessions incorporate both CBT and Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET). Groups are led by counselors with Certified Addiction Professional (CAP) credentials. Sessions address co-occurring disorders and clients with dual-diagnosis can access therapy and medication management for their mental health diagnosis through the physicians and psychiatric nurse practitioners in SMA’s behavioral health programs. Groups also use the 12-step framework and clients are required to attend at least two peer-support meetings—such as AA/NA or SMART Recovery—each week.


SMA’s outpatient program encourages family participation in the client’s recovery. Families can attend family group therapy and individual therapy with their loved one as requested by the treatment team.

Clients requiring more intensive treatment may choose to enroll in one of SMA’s comprehensive, gender-specific residential programs. Women Assisting Recovering Mothers (WARM) is long-term program for single women and mothers with children under the age of six. There are also two tracks for men: the short-term Putman Adult Residential Treatment and the long-term DeLand Men’s Residential Treatment Program (DMRT) which is ideal for those with co-occuring disorders. There are also supportive housing programs for youth and a four- to six-month Residential Adolescent Program (RAP).

SMA also provides case-management and court liaison services. Its Family Intensive Treatment Team (FITT) provides in-home treatment to families in which substance abuse is interfering with daily life. SMA also has a number of prevention and early-intervention programs that work in tandem with local drug courts.

  1. Concerned Mom on

    My son has been coming here for over a year. I can’t say it has helped him but they’ve tried. It’s hard to treat severe social anxiety. We have no complaints really. The wait time can be long but it’s really cheap for poor people. Thank you SMA

  2. Very upset mother on

    Very rude to my daughter. Went with my daughter for her depression. Turns out all they do is insult the patient. They tell you how much thru think you weigh. And they bully you about your weight. Very Disrespectful, Hostile, and they are all WEIGHT BULLIES. You have look perfectly thin in order to not get bullied.

  3. Bullied again, Unbelieveable. I person goes for treatment because they are depressed and they get bullied by their weight. All this place cares about is how much you weigh, and if you are not stick thin they are very hard on you. Being 5’6 and a half and weighing 140 does not qualify for being big. So sick and tired of doctors bullying patients. That’s all this place cares about. Pretty soon us patients might end up with do eating disorder. My advice to the doctors and nurses at this place is to STOP BULLYING your patients. This is the 2 nd time in Daytona I have gotten bullied. I see a pattern here. I wouldn’t be surprised if they can keep their staff if they keep treating their patients so poorly.

  4. Rebecca bellante on

    Bullied by steward marchman staff in Daytona. I was previously bullied 2 other times in deland that’s why I stopped going for a year. This time in Daytona, I was bullied about my weight. I am here for my mental illness and for my meds, not to be bullied by staff. I was bullied by the therapist. Five minutes into our conversation starts talking about blood pressure Then…. This is where the conversation flips. She told me I was a Big Girl, she said I was Heavy, and that I am a Heavy Girl, she said that I have a lot of fat on my body, and do I have a low self esteem? It was wrong for her to speak to me like this. And his date she speak to me like this. She was not sorry for talking to me like this. And she never apologized. She had now caused me to have an eating disorder.
