What Our Patients Have to Say

I've been to several recovery places and they mainly fill open times with throwing more AA groups at you because its easier. At ORC, they add cognitive behavioral therapy as well as dialetical behavioral therby giving more options if AA doesn't work for you. Also, they make sure you benefit from them as the other places people were not going to groups and smoking all day. If your serious about getting better, then this is the place.

The overall experience is positive. The techs and nurses are friendly and helpful for the most part, a few bad eggs though. The facility is modern and very clean. The group therapy sessions are productive and helpful. The doctors listen to your needs and will make you feel comfortable and accommodate your needs. The food is ok, but could use improvement. Kitchen staff were usually rude in my opinion. The management and oversight of operations is the main problem here. The call center and facility Operations are not in sync. They will say pretty much anything to secure your insurance and get you to come. The insurance billing practices are shameful and need to be audited. The management needs to reevaluate how they treat their staff. Overall, I would still recommend this facility for treatment. They need to have a true OUTpatient program for continuing care

My stay at ORC was great... the majority of the staff is AMAZING and they make you feel like your at home. If you’re lucky enough to get Elizabeth as your therapist you are in great hands. All the therapists are great, but Elizabeth was the first therapist that I meshed with ever in my life. The Food isn’t always my favorite, but I can’t complain. Plus they work with you and your dietary restrictions. The beds are very comfy, and the rooms are spotless. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge and also had a lot of fun. I’ll walk out of ORC with my head held high and grateful for my experience. Thank you all who made my journey so special!

What Does the Treatment Process Look Like?

Each client’s treatment plan is tailored to their unique needs. However, treatment usually follows a similar process for all clients. Rehab at Orlando Recovery Center begins with an intake evaluation and ends with aftercare planning, for example.

  • Intake Evaluation

    Each client who arrives for rehab at our facility will first go through a comprehensive evaluation process. Our staff will ask about current and past drug use and evaluate a client’s physical and mental health. The results of this assessment inform personalized treatment plans.

  • Medical Detox

    For clients who are dependent on drugs or alcohol, medical detox is often the first step in a continuum of rehab care. Detox effectively rids the body of drugs, alcohol and other harmful substances so that clients can begin recovery with a fresh foundation.

  • Transition to Further Treatment

    After detox, clients usually enroll in inpatient treatment at Orlando Recovery Center. Once it’s medically appropriate, they can transition to step-down programs including partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient care. During each level of care, mental health counseling is included, and clients can benefit from evidence-based and recreational therapy modalities.

  • Aftercare

    Aftercare plans outline each client’s next steps in recovery once they leave Orlando Recovery Center. Our aftercare plans vary depending on a person’s needs, but usually include maintenance medications (if applicable), follow-up appointments and recommendations for nearby support groups.
