Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Located in Jacksonville, Fla., West Side Counseling Center provides a range of outpatient-based treatment services for adults, adolescents, and families struggling with substance abuse disorders, psychiatric concerns, co-occurring disorders, and major life changes. Along with counseling, the facility also provides specialized programs for adolescents involved in the criminal justice system and other court-ordered treatment services.


Depending on the specific difficulties of the individual, West Side Counseling Center provides both substance abuse assessment and psychological evaluations. The facility also provides court-ordered evaluations that are designed to satisfy court-ordered/probation requirements. Through the assessment, clinicians can identify specific concerns and form a comprehensive treatment plan. Adolescents involved in the criminal justice system may be enrolled into the facility's S.T.O.P. (Service and Treatment for Offender Prevention) Program.

The S.T.O.P. Program is a court diversion program for juveniles who are repeat misdemeanor offenders and/or third degree felony offenders. While the S.T.O.P. Program includes other requirements, such as obtaining employment, attending school, and performing community service, West Side Counseling Center can facilitate the individual, group, and family counseling requirements of the S.T.O.P. Program. The facility may also provide court-ordered counseling services for adults.

In addition to its specialized court-ordered treatments and assessments, West Side Counseling Center treats adults, adolescents, and families struggling with a range of behavioral and/or psychiatric concerns, including addiction, depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), military personnel struggling with post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), bipolar disorders, and personality disorders. According to the facility's website, the facility also provides counseling services to those experiencing grief and loss, work-related issues, and relationship problems.

To treat its clientele, West Side Counseling Center utilizes evidence-based treatment methods, namely cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). Through counseling sessions and these modalities, clinicians strive to identify irrational thinking patterns, improve coping skills, increase mindfulness, promote open communication, and modify any behavioral concerns. The facility also offers eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) sessions, which are designed to lessen an individual's reaction to traumatic past events. The facility does not prescribe medications.

Depending on the needs, circumstance, and preference of the individual, counseling sessions may be held in one-on-one, group, or family/couples settings. In addition to its evidence-based treatment methods, West Side Counseling Center also offers spiritual counseling and Christian-based counseling approaches, which may integrate biblical philosophies and principles into counseling.


West Side Counseling Center's treatment services are provided by a doctorate-level clinical psychologist, licensed mental health counselor, and support staff.
