Frequently Asked Questions
What addictions do you treat?
Our primary focus is treating individuals struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. This also involves those suffering from trauma and dual-diagnosis which is an alcohol and drug addiction alongside a psychiatric disorder such as bi-polar disease, depression, PTSD, or anxiety amongst others. We have structured many programs with a client-centered focus to treat individuals suffering from alcohol and drug addiction, as well as, families affected by the disease. For more information on all of our programs call our addiction specialists today.
Do you have doctors/nurses on-site?
Yes. Our highly trained and experienced staff is on-site and always available for clients in need. We are adamant about placing our clients in a medically supervised detox facility before treatment to ensure the safest and best chance at successful addiction recovery. Upon entering our southern Florida treatment facility, clients will be guided through the treatment process by a dedicated clinical staff ready to handle any situation that may arise. Our clinical staff's dedication and compassion helps clients feel comfortable and safe throughout the treatment process.
How long are the programs?
Alcohol and drug addiction affects every individual differently, meaning that each individual progresses through the addiction treatment process at different speeds. Generally speaking, our programs can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days, but it really depends on the individuals clinical progress. We are not apt to releasing clients before they are ready to rejoin society without the use of alcohol or drugs and want to ensure the best chance at successful addiction recovery by implementing strong outpatient and aftercare programs.
All programs at The Recovery Place have the ability to gradually decrease the intensity and level of care, while continually increasing levels of responsibility and self-sufficiency. This treatment approach, coupled with a structured housing environment, fosters both independence and interdependence.
When it comes down to it, length of stay will vary from person to person with the common goal of reaching successful addiction recovery. You don't want to base your recovery process on length of stay, rather on quality of treatment and we are here to guide you through that process efficiently and comfortably. If you have any further questions about the treatment process or length of stay at The Recovery Place don't hesitate to call our addiction specialists.

What if the patient is already on medications?
Each client’s past history and current medication needs are assessed. An individualized treatment plan is then created, based on medical and clinical recommendations.
Can family visit?
Absolutely! Family involvement is encouraged, and considered an important part of the treatment process. Visits are based on clinical progress and approval from the patient’s therapist.
As the client’s treatment plan progresses, an ongoing dialogue with families is integrated into the recovery process. Families are encouraged to share and discuss issues that have affected them over the years. Healing is an important part of recovery for both the patient and family. Family therapy is highly individualized at The Recovery Place.
Education on addictions, dual diagnoses, and other mental health disorders is provided to families and other loved ones. Information is presented not only at The Recovery Place, but also via telephone, live computer chat, and other media methods, for those living at a distance from the treatment center.
What if the person has warrants pending and legal issues?
We assist our clients in finding the appropriate resources to help with any legal issues that may be present during their treatment period. We also work closely with legal aid courts and probation officers to be sure our clients are in compliance with any current court orders or probationary requirements.
What about privacy and confidentiality?
The Recovery Place is in compliance with the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information ("Privacy Rule”) that establishes a set of national standards for the protection of certain health information.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established the Privacy Rule in order to implement the requirement of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (more familiarly known as HIPAA).
The Privacy Rule standards address the use and disclosure of an individual’s health information. A major goal of the Privacy Rule is to assure that an individual’s health information is properly protected, while allowing the flow of health information needed to provide and promote high quality health care. It also assures the protection of the public's health and well being.
Do you take insurance?
Yes. The Recovery Place is a privately owned Florida drug rehab and alcohol treatment facility. We accept both private insurance and self-payment.
When can a person work?
Clients attending The Recovery Place programs are encouraged to increase their level of independence by working. Work is governed by client’s progress and the recommendations of their therapist.
Do you provide sober living (drug-free living) arrangements?
Clients participating in any of our full-day programs return to a beautiful community housing center located just steps from our treatment facility. On-site rehabilitation technicians are available at the housing center 24/7, to assist patients who are more resistant to treatment, or to help with any crises that may occur outside of normal treatment hours. Consistent daily communication occurs between the technical staff and the clinical team, so that the entire day and night periods are seamlessly devoted to the client’s recovery.
Our sober living facility provides beautiful apartments, surrounded by common areas with a barbecue and pool area for socialization. Full advantage is taken of the beautiful Florida weather.
Our community housing encourages clients to participate in local recovery-rich activities (both physical and spiritual), and provides ample opportunity to practice new life skills and gain confidence.
Each sober-living residence is comfortably furnished with contemporary furniture and cable TV. All the comforts of home are provided, so that time can be spent on recovery.
Scheduled supervised trips around the beautiful Fort Lauderdale area are integrated into the treatment programs. Relearning to enjoy the simple pleasures and activities of life is one of the most important keys to rehabilitation success.
What is the difference between the Day/Night Program and the Day Program?
In the Day/Night Program clients go through the addiction treatment process in our rehab facility throughout the day and stay overnight in our client residence.
In the Day Program clients attend treatment sessions in our rehab facility during the day then stay overnight in other living arrangements, such as their personal home.
