Transformations By The Gulf Review
Florida’s Transformations By The Gulf is a 12-step based addiction and co-occurring treatment program located in the beach community of St. Pete. Transformations offers several programming options including residential and outpatient treatment options. The outpatient tracks are a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) with optional community housing, and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). During the outpatient program clients can expect an array of evidence-based and holistic therapies within a supportive community.
Treatment and Staff
The PHP with community housing is for clients who are not in need of hospitalization but still seeking extra support during treatment. The housing is gender-specific in single family homes that are within walking distance to the beach. Both the men’s and women’s residences provide a good number of amenities and comforts, however clients are responsible for buying and preparing their own food.
The outpatient program begins with a comprehensive assessment. Consequently, the treatment team presents clients with a customized treatment plan. During the weekly individual therapy clients work with their counselors on their treatment plan and continue setting treatment goals. This program typically lasts between eight and 16 weeks.
The PHP is a full day treatment that runs up to six hours a day, and the IOP is considered a step-down that runs Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 am to 12 pm. The outpatient program offers a small client to staff ratio of three-to-one, along with gender-specific and co-ed group therapy.
Group therapy topics include anger management, coping skills, grief and loss and improving communication strategies. Therapies used during treatment are CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), and EMDR. In addition there are a number of expressive and experiential therapy approaches applied during treatment.
There is an eclectic combination of experts that make up the recovery staff at Transformations. This includes consulting psychiatrists, LCSWs, LMFTs, CACs, ARNPs and LMHCs.
In addition to the standard programming options, Transformations also has several alternative specializations and treatment offerings. This includes a program specifically for pregnant women, boat therapy, light and sound Neurotherapy, personal training, acupuncture, Tai Chi, and nutritional counseling.
The outpatient program at Transformations is structured and includes several different therapies that are both traditional and expressive. Above all, the team here treats clients with respect as they move through the program. Participants do everything under the guidance of caring therapists. As a result, leave the program with a new mindset and intentional focus on their personal recovery journey.
