Community Treatment Center

Community Treatment Center


Located in the coastal city of Cocoa, Fla., Community Treatment Center (CTC) offers a continuum of treatment services for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Operating as a non-profit, CTC aims to keep its programming accessible and affordable. Treatment options include standard outpatient care (OP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and long-term residential care. Clients may also receive clinical evaluations on-site. The facility operates an additional center in Titusville.


Treatment at CTC is grounded in 12-step principles, but it also allows for customization and individuality. Clients receive one-on-one counseling and participate in group therapy, the latter of which is used to learn new life skills, practice communicating with others, and develop new values. Specialized groups focus on addiction education, parenting skills, relapse prevention, and HIV education. Alternative therapies, including art therapy, music therapy, and recreational therapy, are used to encourage self-expression. Additionally, all clients are expected to attend off-site recovery meetings and find a sponsor.

Prior to enrolling in a treatment program, clients must first complete an application and participate in an admissions interview. Those who require intense treatment and a high level of structure may opt for the organization’s residential program. Clients enrolled in residential treatment typically remain on-site between six months and one year.

IOP treatment, which requires a minimum of nine hours of programming each week, can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as a step down aftercare from the residential program. Standard outpatient treatment requirements are less stringent but include a weekly group session, recovery meeting attendance, and individual consultations.


To date, there are no specifics about treatment staff at this facility. One reviewer gave four out of five stars for the staff’s level of experience at the time of this writing.


The center’s residential clients stay in a homelike, coed facility located in a residential neighborhood. The center can house up to 15 adults at a time (additional beds are available at a second facility in Titusville). Meals are also covered by each client’s program fee.

J.G., the sole Google reviewer to date, also provided a rating of five out of five stars and described the meetings held on-site as “awesome.”[2] Reviews submitted at the time of this writing to the facility’s Facebook page, which the center can manage, are also positive. Each of the nine reviewers provided five out of five stars.[3] “This place will change your life. Only when you are truly ready for change,” Shelton, a Facebook user, wrote.


Joanne, the single loved one who submitted a review to at the time of this writing, gave the center’s treatment effectiveness only two out of five stars, noting what she perceived as a lack of structure. “Especially lacking is encouragement of program literature and sponsorship. It seems the residents are left to figure it out for themselves (& most of them don’t even want to),” she wrote.


The residential program requires a $125 deposit and costs $125 a week. Depending on the program and type of session, outpatient consultations and groups typically cost between $20 and $50 a session with clinical evaluations costing $175.

  • It is the only one in our area. I believe that other than the residents outside jobs, onsite chores, and "group" counseling, they lack structure in teaching the 12 step program of recovery. Especially lacking is encouragement of program literature and sponsorship. It seems the residents are left to figure it out for themselves (& most of them don't even want to). Volleyball on Sundays.
