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.
