UF Health Shands Psychiatric Hospital consists of a child/adolescent unit, an adult inpatient addiction unit, two adult inpatient psychiatric units and an geriatric psychiatry unit. Inpatient care on our units focuses on providing a safe, highly supervised setting for effective treatment. After an initial patient assessment, a multidisciplinary treatment team of UF Health physicians and clinicians will determine the best level of care and formulate an individualized treatment plan for each patient. The treatment plan identifies problems, interventions and goals designed to facilitate the patient’s return to the community, or to the least restrictive environment possible after discharge. Patients are included in the development of treatment plans. Treatment usually consists of medication, group therapy and case management. Because UF Health Shands Psychiatric Hospital programs often hinge on stabilization, treatment is short-term and highly focused. The goals of inpatient treatment are to stabilize the patient in crisis and address issues that immediately resulted in the need for inpatient care so the patient can function safely and with less distress outside of the hospital.


Detox Services

Drug detoxification, or detox, is the first step in a rehabilitation program. Detox can prevent unpleasant or fatal consequences resulting from sudden cessation of use and can aid the patient in becoming abstinent from drugs. Detox are programs to monitor withdrawing off substances. Detox usually lasts a few days – two weeks.

Residential Treatment

A residential treatment center (RTC), sometimes called a rehab, is a live-in health care facility providing therapy for substance abuse, mental illness, or other behavioral problems. Residential treatment may be considered the “last-ditch” approach to treating abnormal psychology or psychopathology.

Short-Term Residential Treatment

Characteristics of 30 Day Drug and Alcohol Treatment. Short-term drug treatment can last 30 days or 4 weeks and it means that the patient spends continuous drug treatment in an inpatient or residential facility.

Long-Term Residential Treatment

In Patient, or Residential, drug treatment requires that the person receiving treatment for addictions or substance abuse, residing in a facility longer than 4 weeks usually 90 days to a year.

Intensive Outpatient Services

Also known as IOP, it is a primary treatment program recommended in some circumstances by a clinical and medical assessment. IOP may be recommended for those who do not need medically-supervised detox. IOP can also enable people in recovery to continue their recovery therapies following successful detox, on a part-time yet intensive schedule, designed to accommodate work and family life. People do not reside in a facility.


PHP known as partial hospitalization or Day/Night is a level of treatment care where you attend the facility for almost the whole day, but you may return home at night. Some facilities offer housing included in their PHP program. PHP is not the highest level of care, but offers a large amount of therapy and treatment everyday.

Adolescent Treatment

Adolescent programs vary at each facility. The facility has a program  for clients ages 12-17.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Dual Diagnosis patients are those who find themselves battling two very distinct and two very different challenges simultaneously. On one hand there is the challenge of chemical or alcohol dependence, itself a very serious condition, and on the other, a severe mental disorder which, more often than not, is being fed and further complicated by the addiction. Unsurprisingly, these patients respond differently to treatment than those with a single diagnosis, and may be considered high-risk depending on the situation.

Family Inclusive Treatment

Family can be a huge factor in addiction, and family inclusive treatment invites the whole family into the process with phone calls and sometimes bringing them into the facility.

Medically Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.

Behavioral Disorder Treatment

Programs that also treat Anxiety disorders, Disruptive behavioral disorders, Dissociative disorders, Emotional disorders, Pervasive developmental disorders

Eating Disorder Programs

Specializes in treating Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders.

12 Step Recovery

A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism, the Twelve Steps were first published in the 1939 book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism. The method was adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs.
