Fifth Street Counseling Center has been working vigorously to find a solution for continuing mental health services and treatment programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to announce a partnership with Zoom that will allow us to communicate with our patients over scheduled video counseling sessions. Zoom is a secure and HIPAA-compliant, telehealth platform that will enable us to continue the standard of care that we hold in such high regard at Fifth Street Counseling Center. We know times are tough, and we’re here to help you in any way that we can. Afterall, to be healthy as a whole, our mental health plays a vital role.
To all of our valued clients and community partners,
First off, we hope that you are all staying safe! We understand that this is a stressful time and I am pleased to let you know that we will be offering Free “Pandemic Anxiety” counseling via live streaming starting later this week. More information on that to come.
Below are some of the most important points that affect your individual treatment plans. Our goal is to combine infection control with being able to continue to offer you behavioral health and drug testing services.
Here are some of the key points in our plan:
Drug testing will continue at the Plantation location (441 & Broward); Monday & Tuesday 9a-6p, Wednesday 9a-8p, Thursday and Friday 9a-4:30p. We will be closed Saturday and Sunday. The Pompano Beach and Miramar offices are closed until further notice.
A condensed schedule of groups (substance use, parenting, IOP, domestic violence and anger management) will be offered. Clients will be notified with a personal phone call. All groups will only be offered via your phone on a HIPPA-compliant live streaming platform that is easy-to-use and does not require you to download an app. The process will require you to call the office, may a payment by phone, or drop off a money order at the Plantation location. Once you have made your payment you will be texted the information to log into your “live” group. Your therapist will be working from home and during the group you will be able to comment and ask questions.

Free “Pandemic Anxiety” Counseling
Beginning on Thursday, we will begin live streaming counseling sessions that will address anxiety that is related to the pandemic with topics such as; Coping Strategies, Substance Use and Stress, Myths vs. Facts, Parenting in a Pandemic, Self-Care, Relaxation Techniques, etc.
We will offer Vivitrol injections on Tuesdays from 4pm-6pm. No changes.
If a client reports that they do not want to participate in a group, or reports symptoms of the Covid-19 virus, their attendance will be considered to be “Excused”; no sanctions.
Appropriateness of this plan
Stakeholders will meet as-needed, throughout this pandemic, to assess the appropriateness of this plan and notify clients, staff and community partners of any changes.
Please stay safe. Stay in contact with us and remain calm. Practice infection control best-practices and we will return to normal operating practices as soon as possible.

Since 1991, Fifth Street Counseling Center’s mission in Broward County is to rebuild lives, restore families and improve communities. This is accomplished by providing quality, individualized and comprehensive treatment for those experiencing a wide range of problems and are in search of solutions, understanding, support and peace of mind. We are committed to excellence in the delivery of care and services to our clients and their families.
We believe in a family-oriented approach during the treatment process. Using specialized treatment methods, Fifth Street Counseling works toward mending and facilitating healthy family relationships.
Our ability to connect with ourselves and those closest to us is critical to our well-being. Fifth Street Counseling works with couples to help them identify, understand, and conquer the root of their disconnections by guiding them through the process of building healthy, meaningful relationships.
Fifth Street Counseling understands the importance of individual attention during treatment. One-on-one counseling sessions provide clients with a safe place to work on psychological or emotional issues that can often be too difficult or sensitive to discuss in a group setting.
Intensive outpatient programs are designed to enhance the support and progress of your child’s treatment. At Fifth Street Counseling, your teen will learn important life skills and practice coping mechanisms that will help them further explore and understand their mental and emotional health.
We are also a certified provider in Broward County of many court-ordered programs in English and Spanish, as well as many adolescent programs.
As a solution-focused therapy practice, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating and sharing. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life
If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan.
We accept Medicaid and other commercial plans.
