Had a good experience overall. Staff was very helpful and welcoming, including the therapists, nurses and techs. Food was also very good. Only complaint is that it became to crowded with patients and it was evident that they were not staffed for this amount of patients. Other than that my experience was very good.

The treatment I received at ORC was probably the most through that I have ever had and I truly believe it will be my last. It was an unexpected surprise that they treat Eating Disorders as well! This really has been the missing part of my addiction treatment. They also provide a lot of education regarding CODA which has been very beneficial. Unfortunately the facility has been under staffed, and the staff working had been stretched thin. Those caused long medication lines and delays in the schedule for group meetings. Thankfully the behavioral health techs and therapists are ORC's saving grace. They are the reason I stayed for 28 days. I was able to learn much. They inspire self confidence and promote camaraderie amongst the patients. I would still highly recommend ORC addiction treatment.The following staff were exceptional. Therapist: Jasmine, Charity, Nnameka.BHTs: Alicia, Tamecko, Chelsea,Shawn, Aliyah, Pierre, Phil, Bridgette, SierraKitchen staff: Donna, Elizabeth, and Dantel.Dietician: KurryNurses: Cassidy, Quantina, Crystal, Erica

Amazing staff make this place great! Alicia was absolutely incredible during the admission process, she went above and beyond to ensure my needs were met. The therapists are educated and informative. The only negative is that the BHT's and nurses are often understaffed, causing a heavy work load on their part, and long lines for food, meds, etc.

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.
