Areas of Focus
Holistic Therapy

Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

Client & Family Support Groups

Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Individual Therapy

This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

    Gerold Nolan MS, CAP - Director of Outpatient Services

    As a primary therapist, I facilitate group, family and individual therapy sessions and develop and execute treatment plans. I have worked as a mental health professional for over 17 years and draw on my background in Therapuetic Recreation to facilitate our Active IOP and Adventure Therapy groups. I received my Therapeutic Recreation from Southern Connecticut State University, my CAP from the Florida Certification board and will graduate from FAU with an Ed S in Mental Health Counseling this spring. I am also a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern with the state of Florida. My clinical approach is largely based on my own experience with abstinence-based recovery, cognitive behavioral therapy and holistic and integrative therapy models. Originally from Old Lyme, CT, I currently reside in Deerfield Beach, FL and much of my time away from work is dedicated to health and fitness.
