Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders TreatmentFacilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services to ensure lasting recovery. At the Orlando Recovery Center, we also specialize in eating disorder treatment and have two onsite dieticians that can aid in treatment.
Residential TreatmentResidential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
