We create an environment where men can feel comfortable being themselves and get support from other men who understand what they’re going through.

Lucida® Treatment Center, a mental health and addiction treatment center in Florida, launches a men’s primary mental health program, in addition to current program offerings that address addiction and co-occurring disorders. In a safe, gender-specific (but not gender-exclusive) setting, clients can openly share difficult feelings with support from other men, while also having supervised opportunities to interact with the opposite gender.

An experienced treatment team made up of a board-certified psychiatrist, master’s and doctoral level therapists, 24/7 nursing staff, and a case manager works with each client to create an individualized treatment plan. Depending on the client’s needs, they may participate in a wide range of evidence-based therapies including:

  •     Trauma-focused therapies such as EMDR
  •     Individual, group and family therapy
  •     Psychoeducation
  •     Expert medication management and psychiatric care
  •     Dialectical behavior therapy skills training
  •     Neurofeedback (Brain Paint)
  •     Psychodrama and other experiential therapies
  •     Self-help support meetings (12-step and alternatives such as SMART Recovery)
  •     Comprehensive continuing care planning
  •     Monthly family program

“Men aren’t always encouraged to talk about their feelings and ask for help,” said Sergio Muriel, M.Ed, CAP, ICADC, executive director at Lucida Treatment Center. “In treatment, we create an environment where men can feel comfortable being themselves and get support from other men who understand what they’re going through. This helps our clients develop the communication and coping tools they need to repair their relationships and create healthier lives.”
