Our Levels of Care

At Recovery First, we provide a complete continuum of care across our treatment locations. Regardless of what program you start in, you’ll be getting many of the same therapies, treatments, and group sessions throughout your treatment. This makes the transitions between levels far easier and helps you focus more on your individual recovery.

At Recovery First, we provide a complete continuum of care across our treatment locations.

We offer care in several facilities, and you may switch facilities depending on your needs.

Our two locations in Hollywood offers the following levels of care:

  • Medical detox
  • Intensive rehabilitation
  • Residential treatment
  • Intensive outpatient treatment

Our Ft. Lauderdale location is focused on outpatient care, offering:

  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
  • Sober living

For patients who have never been to rehab before or who are currently using, we often recommend starting with medical detox. Once your physical dependence to substances has been addressed, you will feel well enough to fully participate in other levels of care. However, not everyone’s path is the same. We will perform an initial evaluation and assessment to determine the right first step for you.

Our clinicians will perform a thorough physical exam, medical history, and other tests to determine your current level of health, both on a physical and mental level. This information will help us know exactly where you belong in our program.


Medical Detox

Medical detox is where you can withdraw safely from drugs and/or alcohol. In many cases, it is incredibly uncomfortable and/or unsafe to do this alone. In detox at our Hollywood facility, you’ll have 24/7 care to ensure you don’t have to suffer needlessly and that your symptoms are addressed as they arise.

Nurses will perform rounds every 15 minutes to make sure you’re comfortable and to distribute medications as necessary. You can also rest assured that you’ll be safe during withdrawal, as we use EarlySense beds to monitor your vital signs. This technology can sense if you’re restless at night or if there’s a change in your respiration rate or blood pressure and send an alert to the nurses’ station.

Typically, detox lasts for 5 to 10 days and includes 3 prepared meals each day.

Intensive Rehabilitation

For those whose medical needs dictate intensive supervision after detox, we offer intensive rehabilitation, where you’ll receive treatment for your substance use disorder while also receiving the medical care you need from our qualified and caring medical staff.

Residential Treatment

Our residential treatment facility is a 28-bed complex where you’ll live with 3 to 5 other people at a time. Each apartment has 2 or 3 bedrooms, and each bedroom will house 2 people. By the time you move into residential treatment, you should be feeling much better physically, no longer influenced by drugs or alcohol or suffering from withdrawal symptoms.

You will spend the majority of your day in structured therapeutic sessions such as process group therapy, yoga or meditation, 12-step meetings, or various wellness classes. Most people spend an average of 15 to 30 days in residential treatment, though we recommend longer stays, as they tend to result in better outcomes.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our intensive outpatient program is held 3 evenings a week – Monday, Wednesday, and Friday – from 6 to 9 p.m. In our IOP, you’ll discuss the process of addiction with many of the same individuals who were with you in other levels of treatment. The program helps you continue to explore and process what you learned in residential treatment and applying your newfound skills to life in the outside world, as you’ll no longer be living onsite at Recovery First.

Veterans/First Responders Program

Veterans and first responders experience traumatic events that may lead to addiction as substances are used to cope with grief, loss, trauma, and stress. Our program, which offers 10 beds, caters to the unique needs of these populations.

Ft. Lauderdale

We are pleased to offer the following levels of care at Ft. Lauderdale:

  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP)

Partial Hospitalization Program

The most intensive form of treatment we offer at Ft. Lauderdale is our partial hospitalization program. PHP takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for 5-7 days each week, depending on how much treatment you require. The 5- to 6-hour clinical program involves a number of group and individual therapy sessions, mindfulness training, spirituality groups, relapse prevention strategies, and much more to help you cope with your struggles. You may reside at our sober living facility across the street while attending therapy here.

Intensive Outpatient Program

After attending our PHP, you may choose to step down to our IOP. Again, you may reside at our sober living facility while attending this program. This program takes place 5 to 6 days a week, usually from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., depending on your needs. You’ll attend many of the same groups and sessions as your PHP counterparts, including process group therapy, mindfulness sessions, and various other recovery groups.

While traditionally our IOP has been solely available to residents of our sober living facility, beginning mid-April 2019, Recovery First will be offering a community IOP at its Ft. Lauderdale location.

Aftercare Planning

When it comes time to discharge you from our programs, we take care to ensure you have a plan in place. Your case manager will work closely with you to find support in your community and facilitate your reintroduction to social, professional, and family life.

If you live in the Hollywood area, we’ll invite you to join our Saturday morning aftercare sessions from 9 to 11 a.m. These free group meetings let you talk about how you’re faring in the real world and any challenges you might be facing.

You’re also welcome to join our free aftercare group every Saturday from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at our Hollywood facility. If that’s too far, consider our alumni group, which meets every Thursday at 6:45 p.m. at Ft. Lauderdale. These meetings are a little more lighthearted and include dinner with your peers.

If you are moving out of our sober living facility, we can help you another accommodation or connect you to groups in the community who can.
