Hundreds of thousands of Floridians struggle with alcohol abuse and addiction each year. Fortunately, there are many treatment options available in the Orlando area.

Alcohol abuse and addiction affect hundreds of thousands of Florida residents each year. From 2017 to 2019, around 4.2% (770,000) of Floridians struggled with an alcohol use disorder. Alcohol use also contributed to over 4,500 car crashes in 2020, with 384 having fatal outcomes.

Addiction treatment options are a necessity in populated areas like Orlando, which has no less than 14 rehab facilities located within the city. However, not all treatment centers provide the same quality of care or range of treatment, so it’s important to find a reputable one that offers you the best chances of long-term recovery. Orlando Recovery Center may be the perfect option for your needs.

Alcohol Treatment at the Orlando Recovery Center

Orlando Recovery Center is part of The Recovery Village, a nationwide organization dedicated to helping those who struggle with alcohol or drug addictions. Our evidence-based approach treats each client as a whole by focusing on addiction’s underlying causes, such as mental health and other personal factors.

We provide a full continuum of care that transitions to less intensive levels as clients progress in their recovery. The standard treatment process typically includes:

  • Medical detoxDoctors ensure that you remain safe and comfortable as your body eliminates alcohol from its system.
  • Inpatient care: You live onsite, working with therapists, counselors, psychiatrists and other professionals to learn how to live without relying on alcohol.
  • Partial hospitalization programs: This drop-down program provides you with continued access to the facility, but you have more independence and fewer hours of treatment.
  • Intensive outpatient programs: The IOP program involves more hours at the facility than outpatient care, but you start to live at home or at a sober living facility.  
  • Outpatient careYou begin transitioning back into your day-to-day life but continue treatment at the facility on a part-time basis.
  • Long-term aftercareYou’ve graduated from your rehab program, but we still provide ongoing support, routine check-ins and many other recovery services.
  • Dual diagnosis treatment: Addiction and mental health often influence one another, so we treat any co-occurring mental health disorders that may be present, such as depression or anxiety.

Throughout rehab, you’ll attend individual and group therapy sessions, participate in peer support groups and attend counseling. These approaches are designed to help you work through the underlying issues of your addiction, find healthier ways to manage them and learn how to cope without alcohol. 

Throughout your stay, you can also enjoy a wide range of amenities and activities during your downtime. Depending on your program, these may include:

  • Swimming pool
  • Fully equipped exercise room
  • Gymnasium
  • Basketball and sand volleyball courts
  • Yoga, art and life-skills therapy options
  • Scenic lakefront views
  • Walking trails

Treatment is provided by a multidisciplinary team of addiction experts, ensuring that clients receive the highest standard of care possible. Orlando Recovery Center is accredited by The Joint Commission and licensed by the Florida Department of Children and Families. Orlando Recovery Center also holds membership with the NAATP, which keeps our staff up to date on current best practices in addiction medicine.

Choosing to Attend Alcohol Treatment in Orlando, Florida

Whether you live in Orlando or elsewhere in the country, there are many reasons why you may want to attend treatment in our beautiful city. Traveling for rehab can allow you to leave stressful situations, triggers and environments behind to start treatment without unnecessary burdens. If you have supportive family members and a healing home environment, however, finding an addiction treatment location near you can be both effective and convenient.

The city of Orlando provides many opportunities for continued post-rehab recovery. Whether it’s through support groups, 12-step meetings, sober living communities or simply the healing sights and sounds of nature, there are countless places to go and options to choose from. 

If you’re ready to take the first step and find an addiction treatment facility, representatives at Orlando Recovery Center are available around the clock to help you get started. If you’re interested in looking at other facilities, the SAMHSA treatment services locator tool can help you learn about treatment centers in the Orlando area or elsewhere. Be sure to read online reviews and testimonials before you choose a rehab location, as they can help inform your decision. 

How Much Does It Cost to Attend Alcohol Rehab in Orlando?

One of the biggest barriers to alcohol treatment that people face is often the cost. Costs vary widely from one center to the next; some programs can run thousands of dollars a day, while others may be completely free. Insurance can help pay for these costs, and most facilities are able to set up payment plans for those without coverage. No matter your budget, though, there are ways to find help.

People may assume less expensive treatment options are probably not as effective, but this is not always the case. Many affordable treatment centers offer counseling, therapy and support groups, and they are staffed by medical professionals to ensure their patients get the best treatment available.

Does Insurance Cover Rehab for Alcohol Addiction?

Alcohol addiction treatment is typically covered by most types of health insurance. However, if you choose a facility that does not accept your insurance, other options are usually available for payment.

Many Americans go without insurance, but there are still ways to get the help you need. Most treatment facilities offer financing options if they are unable to accept your insurance or if your insurance does not pay the total cost. You can also search for free or low-income treatment centers, but these facilities often have waiting lists and may have limited funding.

It’s normal to feel wary about taking on the costs of rehab, but addiction treatment is an investment in your life. Professional rehab programs can equip you with the tools needed to live a life in recovery, and they can help you prevent far-costlier situations like impaired driving or injuries. Often, treatment is also far more affordable than continuing an alcohol addiction.

If you or someone you love is struggling with substance use or a co-occurring mental health disorder, Orlando Recovery Center is here to help. Contact us today to speak with a helpful representative and learn more about treatment programs that can work well for your needs.
