UF Health Florida Recovery Center (FRC) is the state of Florida’s premiere addiction treatment program located at the University of Florida. Affiliated with the University of Florida Department of Psychiatry, our multi-disciplinary treatments are supported by advanced research from stellar facilities such as University of Florida’s McKnight Brain Institute, where we are uncovering the mechanisms of addiction and developing new treatments.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.

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.
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.
