Planning Your Continuum of Care Starts Today
At The Florida House Experience, we understand that recovering from a substance abuse disorder is not a process that happens overnight, and that long-term solutions must be in place to prevent relapse. While in our inpatient rehabilitation program, it is important to start thinking about and planning your long-term recovery plan. A continuum of care helps to ensure that you will keep getting care, rather than abruptly ending after 28 days.
At The Florida House Experience, having a continuum of care means having a comprehensive treatment plan that serves your best interest, both during and after your stay with us. While participating in our aftercare program, you will work with a team of doctors, psychiatrists, and therapists who are familiar with your history and have been by your side throughout treatment. With our aftercare program, patients are able to establish important goals of recovery and incorporate those goals into their lives through a guided process that will give them the highest chance of treatment success and get them on the right path towards a happy and healthy future!
Post-Inpatient Services & Outpatient Services
Patients seeking a continuum of care after stepping down from our full-time residential program and individuals seeking outpatient services are given the options to participate in programs such as:
- Partial Hospitalization (PHP)
- Outpatient (OP) or Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
- Individual Therapy
- Group Therapy Sessions
- Specialty Group Therapy Sessions
- Family Therapy
- Neuro-Rehabilitative Services
- Case Management & Discharge Services

- Yoga & Fitness Center

Patients enrolled in outpatient services may have day or night time obligations like work, school, or family that keep them from the option of doing a traditional residential program. Our out-patient services allow for flexible scheduling and can range from one therapy session per week or twenty-eight hours per week.
The goal of out-patient rehab for those who have successfully graduated from inpatient treatment is to allow them to slowly taper down their level of care while simultaneously reintegrating their work, school, and home lives.
Continuum of Care & Outpatient Services Provided
Patients seeking a continuum of care after stepping down from our full-time residential program and individuals seeking outpatient programs only are encouraged to utilize the following services:
All patients – residential and outpatient – are able to utilize our medical services, such as receiving medical evaluations, prescription assistance and refills, and visiting our general health clinic. When necessary, we may also refer our patients to doctors in their home towns or outside of our immediate network of doctors. We work tirelessly to ensure that the medical care and treatment for our patients is as smooth as possible so that they can continue on their path to recovery with little to no complications.
Patients have access to guidance from our staff of psychologists, which may include psychiatric assessments and prescription assistance. Just as with medical treatment, we make sure that a plan is in place for our patients to continue receiving care for their mood disorders to ensure that recovery and sobriety are never compromised.
Patients are able to participate in both small-group and individual therapy sessions with their specific therapist, depending on the level of their outpatient or step-down treatment. Clinical Therapy has been proven to be very effective for those on the road to sobriety because having a familiar face and person to speak to about issues as they arise can be comforting.
Our team of Neuroscientists and Psychologists evaluate and locate where addiction has affected your brain. From there, our Neuro-Rehabilitation team will create a specific treatment tailored to your needs in order to target and treat these brain areas. This treatment is available in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
A vital part of the recovery process is involving family because addiction does not solely affect the person who is suffering, it also affects every person that loves that individual. During treatment, you and your family will be able to dive deeper into the root cause of your addiction and learn to address any other factors that may have contributed to the cycle of addiction in your life. Families are encouraged to participate in our weekly family program which includes a personal family therapist that works with family members once per week. This begins in the inpatient setting and continues through the outpatient setting.
We assist those utilizing our aftercare programs in handling real-world difficulties they may encounter, such as maintaining a sober-living environment, job placement assistance, resume building, and access to our Alumni center and computer lab. We like to give our patients all of the tools they will need in order to maintain success during their recovery, so our alumni center offers a 24/7 support network, allowing for continuous contact to be kept between peers.
Our outpatient and aftercare programs are flexible and allow every person to get the continued care they need. No matter what work, school, or life responsibilities exist, it is possible to find a way to keep getting treatment and ensure your long-term health and sobriety. These programs are offered during the day and night, and include roughly 8-20 members to provide individualized support. They are generally 4-12 weeks long and completion of the program depends upon the amount of progress made.
