  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • 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.
  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

If there was 0 star I will rate it 0 star. My husband was a client there and when he came back home he admitted that he had sexual encounter with a staff member by the name of Cassy. They even traded number and kept on talking to each other. When I called the center to file a report, they never called me back. my husband also told me that he was not the only one having intercourse in that place that other clients and staff were doing it. I work in the medical field and I will never think of getting involved with a patient. The center has no values. All the loved ones should be very careful where there loved one goes.

This place, because of my financial situation with my son, didn't even call me back to let me know that they were shipping him to Deland to another PHP. I just found out because he called me from Amtrak. His case manager and his psychologist told him they called me to let me know. These kids in need of help are like pieces of meat to these facilities. It's a damn shame that they don't care. It's all about the mighty buck!
