Recovery is not a one-step process, but rather a personal transformation that evolves in stages. From the early days of rehab to aftercare and sober housing, the programs at ARS provide a full array of integrated services to meet our clients’ needs:
Together, our facilities offer a network of treatment programs that allow our clients to transition easily from one phase of recovery to the next. Whether the client requires treatment for alcohol abuse, opiate dependency, prescription drug abuse, or an eating disorder, our core mission is to empower and aid our clients on their path to recovery. Our continuum of care includes:
For many of our clients, detoxification is the launching point for recovery. Our medical detox facility, Central Florida Detox, provides progressive treatment in a clinically supervised, structured environment. Clients come to our facility seeking relief from the acute effects of drugs or alcohol. Our physician-prescribed and monitored detox programs make the cleansing process safer and more comfortable. As a leader in medically managed detox, we offer:
In addition to the medical services we provide at Central Florida Detox, we also give clients the support and encouragement they need to get through this difficult stage in recovery. With greater mental clarity and renewed physical energy, our clients are ready to advance to the next stage of treatment at one of our residential facilities.
What sets ARS recovery programs apart from most conventional rehab programs? Our client-centered treatment plans are truly tailored to each client. Treatment planning is a crucial step in the recovery process. At the admission stage, clients undergo thorough, comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation to identify their physical, emotional and psychosocial needs. We use the information gathered in this assessment to develop an approach to treatment that reflects the individual’s medical, psychological, and psychosocial status. To gauge the effectiveness of treatment, we regularly review and re-evaluate the client’s progress.
As part of treatment planning, our multidisciplinary staff identifies the appropriate level of care for the client and decides which therapies will create the best outcomes. Whether the client requires help for alcohol abuse, drug addiction, an eating disorder, or a co-occurring mental illness, we are fully equipped to provide a personalized plan for recovery.
Residential treatment is one of the cornerstones of care in the ARS network of facilities. Our beautifully appointed residential recovery facilities — The Recovery Village and Next Step Village Orlando — create the ideal environment for healing, with luxury accommodations, a full range of therapeutic services, and a dedicated staff. Residential treatment allows medically stable clients to focus their full attention on recovery while living on site at one of our facilities. Removed from the distractions of everyday life, they can immerse themselves in the healing process, taking advantage of our progressive recovery services:
Our residential services include 24-hour care from a team of experts that includes a physician, a psychiatrist, a nutritionist, a dietitian, mental health therapists, nurses, integrative therapists, and health technicians. Residential treatment provides the optimal level of support for clients who can benefit from the structure and stability of round-the-clock monitoring.
Clients who are ready for a lower level of structure and supervision may be appropriate for a partial hospitalization program, or PHP. Participants can continue to live at one of our residential treatment facilities while taking part in intensive individual therapy, group counseling, 12-step preparation, life skills classes, and other recovery services.
One of the primary goals of a PHP is to help clients prepare to rejoin the community through an outpatient program or sober living home. With that goal in mind, we focus on helping clients acquire coping skills for dealing with the stressors, triggers, and life situations they will encounter in the “real” world. These services include:
After completing a PHP, clients are generally ready to advance to outpatient care. If they are prepared to apply their coping skills in a less structured living environment, they may also be ready for sober housing. Our case managers and therapists work together to make this transition as seamless and fluid as possible.
Intensive outpatient treatment, or IOP, allows more flexibility and autonomy for individuals who have finished a residential treatment program. Clients receive recovery services at specified daytime hours while living in transitional sober housing or in private residences. IOP offers many of the services included in residential treatment programs, such as:
Most clients transition to IOP from a more advanced level of care. They have already demonstrated a high level of motivation and accountability, along with the necessary coping strategies to deal with stressors and triggers. IOP programs are appropriate for the treatment of alcohol abuse, drug dependence, eating disorders or co-occurring disorders.
Recovery is a continuous healing process, and rehab is just the beginning of the journey. The work that our clients start in the more intensive levels of treatment continues in the aftercare stage. From the time clients enter treatment, our therapists and case managers begin to plan their discharge to determine which aftercare services they may need. This advanced planning ensures that clients can rely on a network of supportive professionals as they re-enter the community and begin to rebuild their lives.
From alumni events to family support, group meetings, recreational activities, and relapse prevention classes, graduates of ARS programs have a host of aftercare resources at their disposal. These resources, combined with the coping strategies learned in treatment, form the foundation for a solid recovery.
After treatment, making the transition back to the community can be challenging. Sober houses offer a stable living environment where rehab graduates can complete this transition at a safe, gradual pace. Residents of sober living communities must follow specific rules in order to maintain an atmosphere that supports abstinence. These rules include avoiding drugs or alcohol, attending house meetings, completing household chores, sticking to a curfew, participating in recovery activities, and more.
The sober housing program at ARS allows clients to maintain their connection with therapists, case managers, and other staff members while increasing their autonomy in a community setting. Sober housing residents can practice their newly acquired coping skills, share their experiences in sobriety, and build meaningful relationships with other graduates who share their commitment to a substance-free lifestyle.
Addiction treatment is truly a team effort, requiring the contributions of primary care physicians, mental health specialists, and other health professionals in the community. The staff members at our ARS facilities collaborate closely with physicians, psychiatrists, counselors, and other experts to provide the highest level of care. With this goal in mind, we work with referring professionals in the following ways:
Referring physicians play an important role in the development of treatment plans and the selection of appropriate programs. From the intake stage through treatment and discharge, we keep our colleagues informed and solicit their professional input. Because we realize that health professionals have busy schedules, we can tailor our updates and progress reports to your needs.
Not everyone starts the journey of recovery in the same place. Some of our clients begin with the most intensive levels of residential care, while others are physically and emotionally stable enough to enter at a lower level of rehab. At ARS, we initiate recovery with a thorough, careful evaluation that allows us to create the most appropriate plan for each of our clients. Treatment programs are provided at our Florida facilities:
An individualized treatment program gives the client the very best chance at reaching their recovery goals. The experts on our multidisciplinary team have the education and experience to treat the most complex conditions, including multiple drug dependencies, repeated relapse, and co-occurring disorders.
