Space Coast Recovery offers evidence based practices as well as co-occurring treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and trauma.

Program Goals

The Matrix Model is a cognitive–behavioral curriculum developed by the National Institute of Corrections that concentrates on changing the criminogenic thinking. Matrix is a cognitive–behavioral therapy (CBT) program that includes cognitive restructuring, social skills development, and the development of problem-solving skills.

Program Components

Matrix stresses interpersonal communication skills development and confronts thought patterns that can lead to problematic behaviors.

The program has three components:

  1. cognitive self-change
  2. social skills
  3. problem-solving skills

Lessons on cognitive self-change provide participants with a thorough process for self-reflection concentrated on uncovering antisocial thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and beliefs. Social skills lessons prepare participants to engage in prosocial interactions based on self-understanding and awareness of the impact that their actions may have on others. Finally, problem-solving skills integrate the two other components and provide participants with a step-by-step process to address challenges and stressful situations they may encounter.

Space Coast Recovery utilizes group therapy to develop new life skills, create new core values, embrace an intimacy with sobriety, sharpen communication skills, and adapt to healthy lifestyles.

All clients are required to participate in group therapy as well as individual counseling sessions.

Each client is required to obtain employment. Staff assists clients with resume writing to sharpen their employability skills.


Addiction Awareness Group

  • A general topic group about the dynamics of alcohol/drug use, abuse, addiction, and recovery. Education and discussion techniques are used to promote the client’s level of identification with their status in the regression of the disease of addiction in order to break through the phenomenon of “denial” and begin the recovery process.

Life Skills Management/Accountability Group

  • A group offering valuable life skills management that includes the areas essential for recovery:
  • Decision making
  • Problem-solving
  • Responsibilities
  • Financial discipline
  • Stress management
  • Conflict resolution
  • Healthy grieving

Why am I Here

  • A group of personal reflection, assessment, and sharing of individual progress made by clients during their recovery to date. Clients are expected to share where they come from, where they have progressed to in recovery and their future goals for living a sober lifestyle. Clients are asked to respond to the question, “Why Am I Here today, and what do I hope to gain from this treatment?”

The purpose groups challenge old ways of thinking and supports newer, healthier goals. SCR provides encouragement for clients to embrace their new purpose in recovery. Evidence based practices, such as Thinking for a Change, teach clients how to change~ people, places, and things.

SCR provides a certified HIV educational course to each client. Our HIV specialist will discuss the disease and negative repercussions associated with HIV/AIDS. All clients are given an opportunity to privately discuss any questions or concerns regarding HIV/AIDS. SCR conducts an HIV test on-site upon request. The test is confidential and voluntary.

Relapse Prevention Group

  •  A group focused on discussion and education on the dynamics of long term recovery, various models for instituting changes in positive direction to facilitate a healthy recovery, and the role of understanding and identifying personal triggers, high risk situations that lead to relapse in a program of long term recovery.

Within these groups, SCR conducts role-play situations to practice their ability to fight temptations and exercise appropriate communications skills to avoid opportunities of relapse. Each client is required to develop a relapse prevention plan and is instructed to revise and update every three months.

Parenting Skills Group

  • A group that provides education on the family dynamics of addiction, the problems that arise for both parents and children during the process, and options for repairing the damage during recovery using approved and recognized healthy parenting skills, and various family recovery options available in the community. The group is mandatory for all clients with children under the age of 18 years; however, attendance is open to all clients on a voluntary basis.

Individual Counseling

SCR requires each client to meet with their primary counselor on a bi-weekly basis. Additional individual counseling is available upon request.
