Cypress West Intensive Outpatient program effectively treats substance abuse and mental health disorders through the utilization of a comprehensive clinical model and the best clinicians in South Florida.
Developed by licensed mental health counselor and certified addiction professional Casey Portner, Counseling of Southwest Florida is now offering an IOP program in Naples called Cypress West Intensive Outpatient.
Welcome to Cypress West Intensive Outpatient
Cypress West Intensive Outpatient (IOP) in Naples provides individualized treatment exclusively for those suffering from substance abuse disorders, as well as co-occurring disorders (a substance abuse disorder coupled with a mental health disorder – also known as dual diagnosis).
Cypress West IOP program uses evidence based practices that effectively treat the following addictions and disorders:
Prescription drug addiction
Intensive outpatient programs (IOP's) are usually recommended through clinical or medical assessments. IOPs are designed to accommodate work and family life by allowing the patient to live at home throughout their treatment. This type of program proves beneficial for our clients because they can learn how to make long term recovery a part of their home life from the start of their recovery process, rather than attempting to introduce their new treatment methods after being away at rehab.
Our program treats only 12 clients at a time, which allows us to provide focused and individualized treatment, customized to the needs and dynamics of the group. Members of our program can feel comfortable working in small groups to gain a deeper understanding of the disease of addiction, learn healthy ways to manage and cope with stress, and increase motivation to live a drug-free life. Members of Cypress West IOP benefit from a positive support group of addiction treatment and mental health professionals, as well as their peers.

What Sets Cypress West IOP Apart?
At Cypress West IOP, our addiction treatment professionals believe that understanding your addiction is the first step to overcoming it. We believe that there are excellent solutions and processes available to help someone overcome addiction, but where many treatment providers and community resources fall short is an effective delivery method. Simply treating an addiction without complete explanation and understanding of each aspect involved can delay recovery and increase the chance of relapse.
At Cypress West IOP, knowledge is power. By accurately understanding what is happening to us within an addiction or disorder, we can more effectively identify, accept, and implement recovery solutions that work. Our treatment approach focuses on the biological, psychological, and emotional aspects of addiction and the associated recovery process.
Our model effectively communicates the exact nature of addiction and it's reaching effects to our mind, body, and behavior. Substance abuse chemically alters our brain and body in the following ways:
- Biology & Physiology – Substance abuse and addiction creates a chemical imbalance in our brains and bodies that disrupt the way our brains send, receive, and process information.
- Psychology – The way we think, and what we think about.
- Emotionality – How we feel, to what degree we feel it, and how we act upon those feelings.
Each of these changes initiate and perpetuate addiction, and if not addressed and treated correctly, these changes act as barriers and road blocks on the path to recovery. Once the patient understands how the addiction process is effecting their own mind and body, we begin to introduce recovery solutions.
Our model emphasizes the development of a consistent and trusting therapeutic relationship between all members of our team and the patient. We are committed to providing clarity and transparency in the treatment process through the maintenance of an open and honest dialogue with our patients. By emphasizing sensitivity and awareness to the patients point of view and readiness, we can meet the patient where he or she is at and develop a treatment plan based on his or her unique strengths and barriers in all three areas of focus; physiological, psychological, and emotional.
