Our Facility

We want you to feel at home during your stay at the Orlando Recovery Center. We understand how difficult it is to commit to substance abuse treatment, which is why we make your comfort our priority. Our modern designs and amenities provide the best possible environment to help you heal.

Length of Stay

How long rehab takes primarily depends on your insurance company. It is also based on the needs of the individual as well as clinical progress and evaluation. The result of the first evaluation along with progress made during the course of treatment also greatly influence how long the patient stays at Orlando Recovery Center.

Family Program

With the patient’s consent, the family will be involved throughout the rehab process through therapeutic sessions over the phone or face-to-face sessions at the facility.

  • Mood disorders: anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder
  • Four types of personality disorders: borderline, histrionic, narcissistic, and dependent
