Patients who require hospitalization for detox or inpatient treatment for drug and alcohol problems may be admitted to UF Health Shands Psychiatric Hospital where the Florida Recovery Center has 20 licensed hospital beds for substance abuse patients at 4101 N.W. 89th Boulevard in Gainesville, Florida. Counselors will work with you to determine what types of services are best for the individual patient.
If you plan to be admitted for detox upon arrival, go to the front desk and let the receptionist know that you have an appointment with the Intake Department. You will speak with an intake counselor who will do an initial interview and complete the necessary paperwork for your admission. You will be admitted to an inpatient unit with licensed hospital beds that includes patients who are currently in treatment for some type of substance use disorder.
Although there are private rooms on our unit, admission to those rooms is dependent upon availability. Our goal is your safety and the safety of all of our patients and staff, therefore the rules during your stay will be the same as for the program patients.
If you are not being admitted to the hospital, but are coming directly into our Partial Hospitalization Program for alcohol rehab or drug rehab, you will go directly to the Florida Recovery Center at 4001 S.W. 13th Street in Gainesville. You will go to the front desk and let staff know you are there for admission into the PHP.
Financial counselors are also available to evaluate your insurance benefits and assist with making financial arrangements.
