Treatment Center Setting

In addition to yoga, volleyball, and various other amenities Orlando Recovery Center offers complimentary 24-hour chauffeur pick-up service within the state of Florida.
Areas of Specialization
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
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.
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.
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.

ABOUT ORLANDO RECOVERY CENTER
Set on lakeside property in Orlando, Fla., Orlando Recovery Center provides a variety of services for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Its offerings include residential care, partial hospitalization (PHP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), standard outpatient treatment (OP), and aftercare services. Medical detox and treatment for co-occurring eating disorders are also available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients undergo a full assessment and evaluation. Individuals experiencing severe withdrawal symptoms are typically referred to the medical detox program, which includes 24-hour monitoring, individual counseling, medication management, and life skills training. The center also incorporates holistic elements into detox, including acupuncture and fitness activities.
Once stabilized, clients may move on to residential or outpatient treatment, the latter of which is offered at PHP, IOP, and OP levels. Orlando Recovery Center’s treatment approach utilizes the 12-Steps and incorporates psychotherapy, process groups, and holistic treatment modalities. Clients may begin at one level of treatment intensity and use less intense offerings to “step down” and gradually re-enter society.
Individuals who complete treatment have access to a comprehensive aftercare program that offers sober living accommodations, ongoing case management, and support groups.
Under the direction of a triple-board certified physician in pain medicine, addiction medicine, and anesthesiology, Orlando Recovery Center employs licensed mental health counselors, certified life coaches, registered nurses, and other admissions and administrative staff.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The center can accommodate up to 93 adults at a time. Clients share simply furnished rooms with one other resident and eat meals that are prepared on-site. The facility includes a fitness room, swimming pool, and a basketball court, in addition to fitness classes such as yoga. Additionally, a free chauffeur service is available 24 hours per day and travels anywhere within the state of Florida.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The two alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com were critical of the facility and reported multiple problems. While Vicki liked her therapist, she described the management of the facility as “poor.” “Staying at that facility was like fighting in the trenches,” she wrote. Similarly, K.F. indicated that the center’s treatment environment was chaotic, characterizing the facility as a “mad house.” K.F. also cited unprofessional conduct among staff and a general disregard for clients’ needs. “They have no understanding about addiction and I felt my problems were insignificant to the nurses,” K.F. wrote.
The facility fared much better with Google users, earning an average rating of 4.2 stars, based on 13 reviews. Brittany expressed gratitude for the treatment she received in her five-star review. “The staff and therapists are pretty amazing and it's a wonderful place to go to if you need help with addiction, alcohol or eating disorders!” she wrote. Pauly noted that “you get what you put in for it,” and added that he’d “never seen the amount of people like the staff and therapists who work there that actually care for the patients.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
C.A., the one loved one polled by Rehabs.com, expressed extreme dissatisfaction for the care their partner received. C.A.’s problems started with the “unorganized” admissions process and carried over into treatment that lacked most of what was promised in the facility’s advertising materials. “For family members of inpatients, the treatment process is totally opaque. Communication, internal and external, is severely deficient,” C.A. added.
The few reviews submitted to Google by loved ones of clients were far more positive. Hunter awarded the facility five stars, noting the “helpful and kind” staff members. Paige submitted a glowing review for the care her son received for heroin addiction. “My husband and I were so impressed by the way Orc helps not just the addiction but the whole person,” she wrote.
WHAT STAFF SAY
Rehabs.com has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s staff, but employee reviews submitted elsewhere are mixed. Sheldon provided a five-star review on Google. “Positive and uplifting work environment, passionate co-workers, and a beautiful facility,” he wrote.
On Facebook, W.F. left a scathing, one-star review that cited unethical billing practices, inadequate care, and understaffing. “They claim that patients are seen daily in the DETOX level of care, they are NOT...They claim that patients are seen daily in the RESIDENTIAL level of care...They are NOT (but you and your insurance are charged for it),” W.F. wrote. The facility, which has the power to vet comments on their Facebook page, responded to the review, encouraging the reviewer to contact the facility directly.
One month of treatment at Orlando Recovery Center is priced at $25,000. The center works with a number private insurance companies, including Aetna, Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and others.
