Located in Hollywood, Fla., 20 miles north of Miami, Memorial Regional Hospital's Behavioral Health Unit provides stabilization services, short-term residential care, and outpatient programs for clients seeking treatment for substance abuse, mental illness, or co-occurring disorders. The facility also provides residential and outpatient-based detox services.


To help clinicians determine an appropriate level of care, patients first undergo an initial biopsychosocial assessment. Patients who medically require stabilization will be referred to the detox program. Memorial Regional is one of the 46 hospitals in Florida that have a detox program. Detox is available in a residential format as well as an outpatient format.

Clients that need structure such as access to medical attention and 24/7 monitoring may be referred to the hospital's residential program. As a hospital-based program, the goal of residential care is to quickly stabilize the client and refer the client to a less-intensive level of care. The average length of stay is less than one week, making it one of Florida’s 113 short-term treatment programs.

Residential treatment for chemical dependency involves a range of evidence-based treatment methods. Utilizing dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approaches, the hospital facilitates regular group and individual counseling sessions to help clients modify destructive thinking and behavioral patterns.

Memorial Regional Hospital also holds educational workshops on improving coping skills, relapse prevention techniques, anger management, and regulating emotions. Family counseling may also be incorporated into programming.

Along with counseling sessions and educational groups, patients with a primary psychiatric condition or a co-occurring condition may receive a pharmacological intervention and ongoing medication management to promote stabilization. Once a client is stable, Memorial Regional Hospital may encourage clients to "step-down" to the facility's outpatient programs. The hospital also offers an aftercare program, which involves weekly sessions for up to one year.

The facility's SHARE Program is an outpatient-based detox program that typically lasts between two and three weeks. Traditional outpatient programs are specialized to treat clients seeking treatment for chemical dependency or a primary psychiatric disorder. Outpatient programs last approximately four weeks and involve relapse prevention classes, group and individual counseling, coping skills workshops, and medication management as indicated.
