As The Recovery Village’s flagship center, The Recovery Village Umatilla administers high-quality behavioral health care to individuals living with substance use disorders. To provide clients with the best chances of long-term recovery, the Central Florida center offers comprehensive treatment that involves multiple levels of care, therapeutic methods and recreational opportunities, all administered by an experienced, multidisciplinary treatment team.

Levels of Care

Rehab for drug or alcohol addiction tends to be most effective when clients gradually build skills and gain insight throughout multiple stages of care. To promote long-term recovery, The Recovery Village Umatilla offers medical detox, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient levels of care at our Central Florida facility.

Medical Detox

Medical detox provides people with a safe, clinically monitored space to work through the symptoms of substance withdrawal. Medication-assisted treatment may be administered if deemed clinically safe and appropriate. For people with physical addictions, medical detox is a crucial first step in recovery.

Residential

Also referred to as inpatient rehab, clients in residential treatment live and undergo programming at The Recovery Village Umatilla on a full-time basis. Clients receive around-the-clock supervision and support as they participate in counseling and therapeutic activities.

Partial Hospitalization

As clients develop skills through therapeutic support and personal reflection, they typically step down to partial hospitalization treatment. Clients continue to live on-site and undergo daily clinical care in individual and group settings. During this stage of treatment, many people participate in therapeutic recreational and holistic therapies, as deemed appropriate by a medical professional.

Intensive Outpatient

Clients in the intensive outpatient program typically continue to live and participate in programming at the facility. However, additional flexibility provides the opportunity for clients to practice new coping strategies while still receiving support from treatment professionals.

Outpatient

Offered to non-residents, outpatient treatment can be undergone on its own or as a step-down option in a full continuum of care. Clients in this level of care participate in treatment at The Recovery Village Umatilla on a part-time basis while residing in off-site housing or sober living facilities. The flexibility of outpatient treatment allows clients to practice recovery skills while still receiving professional support.

Treatment Therapies

Once detox is complete, clients participate in therapy to work through the mental aspects of addiction. Clinicians coordinate evidence-based individual, group, family, recreational and holistic therapies that promote the self-reflection, personal growth and healing needed for lasting recovery.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a key component of all treatment plans at The Recovery Village. Over the course of several weekly sessions, clinicians work closely with clients to help them understand their motivations, unpack past experiences and learn the coping skills needed to build a robust support system and manage difficult emotions without substances.

Based on each client’s needs, mental health professionals at The Recovery Village Umatilla may employ any of the following individual therapies:

  • EMDR Therapy: Allows clients to work through past trauma in a supportive setting
  • Motivational Interviewing: Assists clients in exploring and resolving ambivalence to increase motivation

Group Therapy

Recovery doesn’t usually happen alone. For long-term sobriety, social support is crucial. That’s where group therapy comes in. Group therapy provides clients with an opportunity to hear the experiences of others who share in their struggles, discuss their own challenges and stay accountable to recovery goals. Topics discussed in group therapy sessions may include coping strategies, addiction education, emotional trauma, relapse, codependency, and others.

Group therapy settings offered at The Recovery Village may include:

  • SMART Recovery
  • 12-Step programming
  • Experiential groups
  • Skills groups

Many group therapy options for addiction are available for free in communities across the country, so clients can continue to receive support after returning home from formal recovery care.

Family Support & Therapy

For many, one of the strongest sources of social support during recovery comes from family members. Because of this, it’s critical that the relatives of people in recovery do everything they can to understand their loved one’s condition. Through family therapy, family members can learn more about addiction, work through complicated feelings and develop healthy family dynamics that promote mutual understanding and success.

Recreational & Holistic Therapies

Many people use substances to cope with negative feelings, increase positive emotions or deal with boredom. Finding new, healthy alternatives to drug or alcohol use that serve as an outlet for stress and a source of excitement can promote long-term recovery. Through recreational and holistic therapies, clients learn more rewarding ways to deal with challenges and spend free time. These therapies also facilitate positive interactions with peers that don’t involve substances, serving as a model for building healthy social relationships after treatment.

Some of the recreational and holistic activities offered at The Recovery Village in Umatilla may include:

  • Equine Therapy
  • Yoga
  • Canine Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Music Therapy

Medication-Assisted Treatment

An evidence-based treatment method growing in popularity, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combines behavioral therapy and medications to address addiction. MAT is only utilized for individuals with substance use disorders involving physically addictive substances and provided on a case-by-case basis as deemed appropriate by a medical professional. When approved and administered properly, MAT can ease withdrawal symptoms, reduce the pleasurable effects of addictive substances and suppress cravings to promote recovery.

Aftercare & Support

Recovery doesn’t end once treatment at The Recovery Village is complete. For long-term sobriety, clients need continued support and accountability after receiving professional care. To help ease this transition, staff members at the center work closely with clients to arrange continued care in their local communities.

Aftercare from The Recovery Village Umatilla includes:

  • Alumni Program: Periodic contact from an alumni coordinator to check in on client’s progress and ensure they are continuing to meet recovery goals
  • Recovery Groups and Providers: Clinicians connect clients to nearby support groups and local health care providers
  • Sober Living Homes: If desired, clients can ease the transition from treatment by living in Next Step Village sober living homes

Clinical Staff & Leadership Team

Physicians, nurses and clinicians work together to provide coordinated, high-quality care to clients at The Recovery Village. With the combined expertise of a team of mental health and medical professionals, clients can receive comprehensive, individualized care that promotes long-term healing.

Treatment provided by The Recovery Village Umatilla’s clinical staff is directed by a leadership team of experienced medical professionals. With decades of experience in the fields of mental health and addiction, the leadership team ensures that clients receive a high standard of compassionate, professional care.
