Admissions Process

As soon as you call, our staff will gather the necessary information for your personal intake assessment.

We want to plan the best course of action for your treatment. That’s why our intake pre-assessment process is designed to help our team determine your eligibility, most appropriate level of care, and individual needs.

What We'll Ask

Your confidentiality is our top priority. “We’ll ask you about your substance abuse and history, mental health concerns, eating disorder history (if any), your current environment and other medical information. From here, we’ll start on your initial detox planning.”

– Robert Fishman, Vice President of Admissions

Exploring Your Insurance Options

We believe recovery should be available to anyone in need of care. Which is why we work directly with your insurance provider to find the best option for you.

We accept most major health plans to help you pay for your drug or alcohol rehabilitation treatment. You can verify your benefits coverage online, call and one of our representatives can help you, or check with your health insurance carrier for final determination regarding specific covered services. Usually, prescription drugs used in treatment like methadone and suboxone are covered, but not always.

Understanding Your Treatment Options

It starts with understanding – We’ll walk you through the various components of addiction recovery and break down how our treatment programs work within this process.

Admissions FAQs

Drug and alcohol rehabilitation is one of the most effective ways to find treatment and recover from addiction. Still, you may feel apprehensive about attending a rehab program. You’re likely feeling uncertain about how rehab works, what’s included, how long it takes or how much it costs. Learning the answers to your questions can help remove some of that apprehension and better prepare you for this big step in your recovery journey. We’ve provided a list of our most frequently asked questions and their answers.

Questions About Going to Drug and Alcohol Rehab

If you show signs of substance abuse and addiction, rehab can help you correct your behaviors, repair relationships, learn new ways to handle difficult situations, discover strategies for staying sober and lead a healthier, happier life.

The cost of addiction treatment can vary widely depending on the severity of your addiction, the type of facility, the length of your stay and the form of care you receive. Publicly-funded facilities can range from $1,500 to $8,000 or more for treatment, while private facilities can range from $20,000 to $60,000. However, the cost of treatment is always more affordable than the cost of continuing an addiction.

Health insurance is one of the best ways to keep rehab affordable. Drug rehab insurance coverage can pay for some or all of your costs, and it’s included in most insurance plans. However, plans may differ in the types of programs and facilities they cover.

Typically, the entire length of a rehab stay is around 20 to 30 days. However, this can vary widely depending on your specific needs. (Related: What to expect)

You or your family are expected to secure your travel accommodations. If you are traveling by plane, however, one of our drivers can pick you up from the airport.

If you qualify for FMLA, you are allowed to use it for rehab without being punished or retaliated against. However, you can still be fired for substance abuse if your workplace has a strict drug-free policy in place.

Questions About Life at the Orlando Recovery Center

Our drug and alcohol treatment center is located at 6000 Lake Ellenor Drive in Orlando, Florida.

What happens during detox is that a person goes through the withdrawal process as their system naturally clears itself of drugs and alcohol in a safe, medical environment. The person may receive MAT, or medication-assisted treatment, to help relieve uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that can occur.

Yes, our multidisciplinary team of experts is able to provide treatment for co-occurring disorders. Mental health and substance abuse often influence one another, so it’s important to treat both to improve chances of recovery success.

Though it may depend on your treatment program, you are usually able to place phone calls to family members, see them during designated periods and participate in family therapy for addiction.

You will see your doctors on a routine basis for checkups, treatment adjustments and progress monitoring. However, you may see them more or less often, depending on your treatment program. Outside of doctor visits, you have access to nurses, counselors and other facility staff members.

Clients are given times when they can smoke in a designated area. E-cigarettes and other vape products are not allowed, and you must bring cigarettes in their original, unsealed packaging. The cigarettes you bring must last for your entire stay.

Questions About Life After Rehab

The rehab stay is an important step in recovery, but it’s also the shortest part. What follows is a lifelong process of maintenance, learning from mistakes and leaning on support. It won’t always be easy, but this is why Orlando Recovery Center provides alumni services to help you stay on track and correct your course when you stumble.

Each client receives an individualized aftercare treatment plan that helps them stay sober with the help of support and recovery resources. Aftercare can include relapse prevention plans, access to support groups, follow-up appointments, case management and sober living communities.

Alumni programs include aftercare services as well as access to online substance abuse support groups, checkups, exclusive events, on-call support and other resources that are available for clients who complete rehab.

Sober living homes are environments where people can live after completing rehab. The early days of recovery can be difficult, so sober homes help people practice coping skills they learned during rehab in a safe, substance-free environment.

I had a great experience at Orlando Recovery Center. The staff was friendly and understanding, clean and positive atmosphere, decent food and snacks as well! Not everything is perfect, but I don’t regret going at all. I went in for 30 days, and it was worth it. I learned more about myself in a month than I have in the past two-three years. If you’re reading this and wondering if you should go to ORC, go.

Orlando Recovery Center saved my life. As cliche as that may sound it is still the truth. I learned about myself, my addiction and my mental health. I would recommend anyone that is struggling with addiction to go to ORC. What do you have to lose?
