Specialization

  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Staff is horrible... I have severe PTSD and I got tossed out for having a bad day. Well when your treated like you are in jail it’s hard to stay positive. They also stole my meds, a new electric shaver and my $100.00 sandals when they bought me all my stuff and I had zero time to check my belongings. Go elsewhere and get the real treatment for you or your loved ones.

      The Bad: Some of the techs that work are not very considerate. True, they have a job to do, but some times they treat the adults that are serious about recovery like children. Also some of the rules don't apply to everybody, especially in PHP. The Good: Overall, the place is amazing. If you're serious about recovery, this place is no joke. Therapists are great. Every morning the place is mopped, they do your laundary, change your sheets, and give you 3 meals a day, which are excellent. There are some awesome techs there too, and the nurses are very caring to you. The neurological department is excellent; the brain mapping and treatment they do makes a HUGE difference. PHP and IOP gives you a little more freedom, but whatever program you're in, you must go to groups. Again, if you are serious, the groups are excellent, and highly recommended. BOTTOM LINE: You get out of Recovery what you put into it. If you are not serious about it, dont bother going. I dove head first into my recovery, and being a relapser, I took it seriously this time. If you focus on yourself and really want to get sober, this is the place to go. People that give this place a bad review are childish, selfish people, who dont understand recovery. Trust me, this place helped me to start getting my life back together. THANK YOU FLORIDA HOUSE AND GOD BLESS YOU GUYS!

      The FHE saved my life. I was losing everything valuable in my life- was close to losing custody of my child and I realized I needed help. I cannot day enough about the Florida House. The staff was amazing. I couldn’t have made it without them. I loved almost every single one of them. (huge shout out she was a god send) The treatment is not easy but if you have your mind made up, you can do it. Very clean facility, food was excellent as well. I thank the Florida House for saving my life and for helping me get my life straightened out. They know what you need in rehabilitation- yes it may seem unfair or hard but in the long run it’s worth it 100%. Thank you again!
