All of our lives are touched in some way by mental illness and substance abuse. Mental illness affects one in four families and one in nine will become substance abusers. Mental illness is often at the root of problems related to alcohol and other drugs.

Since 1968, David Lawrence Center has built its reputation on an unconditional commitment to providing compassionate, highly skilled, innovative mental health and substance abuse services to children, adults and families in need in Southwest Florida.




"I have learned that my illness is something I will have to deal with forever and that I will have to stay on my medications. My therapist has taught me to stay positive and how to cope with my sadness and anger."
