This is a terrible treatment center no medical support I would not send my dog there


As a physician, i do not agree with the process by UF Frc. It is NOT an individual health care improvement process as directed by Director M,D. The program has many high quality benefits so, select th...


FRC is absolutely awful. My therapist spent my entire stay pushing his religious views onto me, and then putting me down for not accepting it. I was consistently singled out and ridiculed by the group...

Environment was a strength of the facility but the cost was a downfall.

Had a great 12-step program, but lacked faith-based programs or the ability to deal well with co-occurring disorders.


We sent our son there for detox and residential treatment, but communication with staff, except intake, was almost impossible during detox. Neither treating doctor nor director ever returned our call...


I have been continuously impressed by the level of care offered here. One of the things that sets them apart from other rehab facilities is that they have a complete clinical staff led by medical doct...


I felt this was a corrupt facility. When I wanted to leave a week early, they threw a fit. Would not help me catch flight. Please rethink this place.


FRC gave me the tools and experience to navigate the challenges of living life on life's terms after I went back to the real world. Although I relapsed, it was only a blip, and since then, things have...




Without question, the best facility in the nation. I was in terrible shape upon arrival. The staff were caring, professional and talented.


I feel the whole thing is a racket.

Areas of Focus
Intensive Out Patient (IOP)

Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
