Sunspire Health Hyde Park Philosophy
Sunspire Health Hyde Park is a private, residential treatment facility specifically designed to meet the needs of women with substance abuse, co-occurring mental health disorders, body image and food issues, and trauma. Our goal is to provide a homelike setting where women can overcome their addictions and gain a new sense of control over their lives. Our evidence-based medical and behavioral treatment programs teach women to free themselves from the thoughts, actions and self-sabotaging behaviors that bring them to Hyde Park. We teach critical self-care skills to encourage women's independence and continued success once they embark upon their new life in recovery. Hyde Park is focused on encouraging female empowerment and support to build lasting systems of support through the bonds that happen during treatment.
Areas of Specialization
Body Image and Disordered Eating
The vast majority of women who come to Hyde Park are dealing with body image issues and a good portion are also struggling with disordered eating in addition to substance use. Using evidence-based therapies and focusing on nutritional guidance and self-esteem, the clinical team at Hyde Park will address these underlying issues that may contribute to the patient's substance use disorder.
Focus on Healing the Family
Sunspire Health Hyde Park has a well-established family program that includes ongoing family therapy sessions with an assigned Family Therapist for each patient, as well as an intensive family weekend that works to heal the family. Patients and families who go through the family weekend at Hyde Park have greatly benefited from the communication and breakthroughs that happen during the four days, allowing them to form lifelong bonds and repair shattered relationships.
At every Sunspire Health facility patients will receive treatment that is individualized to their unique needs and diverse lifestyles. Ongoing assessments allow the treatment to adapt and evolve as the patient progresses.
During residential treatment patients live onsite in housing with access to care from clinical staff 24/7. Patients have a full schedule of individual and group therapies according to their unique treatment plan, preparing them for life in recovery.
To transition from residential treatment to life in recovery, patients go through a progression of care until reaching IOP. Patients will receive ongoing care at the Palm Desert IOP while living in sober housing to adjust to every day life after treatment.

ABOUT SUNSPIRE HEALTH HYDE PARK
Sunspire Health is a network of addiction treatment facilities with centers in California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, South Carolina, and Texas. The Hyde Park facility is located on a quiet, palm-tree-lined street a block from Hillsborough Bay in Tampa, midway down Florida’s Gulf Coast. The center offers detox plus residential and outpatient treatment for women who are struggling with substance abuse, process disorders, and trauma. The facility offers dual diagnosis treatment.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Sunspire Health facilities view addiction as a chronic disease, and use evidence-based methods supplemented by holistic therapies to help clients achieve abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Specifically, Hyde Park often uses cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Individual, group, and family therapy are used alongside 12-step groups, anger management, relapse prevention counseling, and nutritional guidance.
Holistic options include meditation and mindfulness, yoga, recreation therapy, physical exercise, and community activities.
In addition to a residential program, the center offers a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). The partial hospitalization program (PHP) involves attendance five to seven days per week, for six to eight hours per day, while the intensive outpatient program (IOP) meets three to five times per week for three to four hours per day.
The team includes mental health counselors, certified addiction professionals, and a licensed care social worker. The two individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date rated the staff’s level of training and experience three and five out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Hyde Park accommodates up to 20 women at a time. Pictures published on the facility’s website show an attractive Victorian home with comfy common areas. The six individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date gave the center an average rating of 3.67 stars for its accommodations, and all three of the individuals polled on the center’s cleanliness gave it four or five stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the three alumni reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date, two were positive and one was mixed. One alum rated Hyde Park four and five out of five stars in fifteen different metrics, rating it five stars in counseling options, family participation, and treatment of co-occurring disorders.
All three reviewers spoke very highly of the center’s counselors and therapists. Alum K.A.P. wrote: "Supportive staff and lots of information. The therapists are all excellent," and M.S. added: “They are wonderful and truly invested in their clients and the nutritionist is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile for eating disorder clients”. However, M.S. in contrast wrote: “This company hires techs without the appropriate credentials to deal with this population.”
On Google, one reviewer left a perfect five-star review of Hyde Park, and on Facebook one reviewer rated it four out of five stars. Google reviewer Cynthia, despite leaving treatment early due to illness, wrote: "My family therapist and my regular therapist were wonderful. The groups, well if you go there you'd better be prepared to work, as they are a challenge. I would recommend this facility to everyone."
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Of the three reviews by loved ones submitted to Rehabs.com to date, one was mostly positive, one mixed, and one negative. The single loved one polled on Hyde Park's offerings in a variety of treatment metrics was the mixed reviewer, who rated the center four out of five stars for its overall effectiveness, family program, and counseling options but two stars for its holistic offerings and treatment for co-occurring disorders. Despite the positive ratings, they did criticize activities planned for clients, writing: “they allow clients to go to the store to make purchases I have never heard of a facility that allows clients to go out shopping. I feel this is counter intuitive.”
In other reviews, loved one J.K.W. wrote: “Treatment is only effective if the person receiving it is willing and grateful for the chance to start their recovery. NA and AA is part of our lives,” indicating that treatment was successful for their loved one. But loved one F.S. wrote: “DO NOT SEND YOUR DAUGHTER HERE! They do not care for their patients as their website states, if your daughter has a dual diagnosis - they will ship her to a local hospital- and then state they can't treat her and lie about contacting the hospital!!”
WHAT STAFF SAY
On Indeed, fifteen current and former employees rated Sunspire Health as a whole an average 3.6 out of five stars. In general, employees criticized the stressful environment but felt the work was still rewarding at Sunspire Health. A former behavioral health technician wrote: " Working in the service industry lacks substance for me now. Being able to help clients when they are at such a crucial chapter in their life is rewarding in itself. Unfortunately sometimes you are asked to compromise your values."
Hyde Park accepts insurance and is in-network with Aetna, Cigna, Multiplan, Anthem, PHCS, and Value Options. Financial assistance is also available, in the form of a loan through American Healthcare Lending.
