Wesley Chapel FloridaAcadia: North Tampa Behavioral Health Review

North Tampa Behavioral Health opened in 2013 to provide psychiatric and substance abuse treatment to residents of central Florida. Located in the town of Wesley Chapel, North Tampa Behavioral Health is situated just 25 miles north of downtown Tampa. It provides substance abuse clients with a short-term inpatient detox (usually three to five days) and outpatient treatment at the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) levels of care.

North Tampa Behavioral Health is a member of the Acadia provider network, which operates an international group of outpatient and residential treatment facilities throughout the US and United Kingdom.

Treatment and Staff

Most clients enter treatment at the PHP level and step down to the IOP. Those requiring detox may stay at the facility for three to five days prior to entering the PHP.

PHP clients attend group therapy from 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday. They also have individual therapy at least once a week. Most clients complete their PHP treatment plan in two to four weeks.

IOP clients have the choice of enrolling in either a daytime or evening treatment track. The daytime IOP meets for group therapy Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 am to 12 pm. The evening IOP meets for groups Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Individual therapy is scheduled as-needed. Most clients complete their IOP treatment plan in two to four weeks, with an average stay in both programs a combined six weeks total.

The foundation of therapy at North Tampa Behavioral Health is CBT, which the treatment team uses to teach clients how to interrupt the negative thought patterns leading to addiction. Groups also use DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). The treatment team includes physicians, psychiatric nurse practitioners and Master’s-level therapists such as MSWs and MFTs. North Tampa Behavioral Health is fully equipped to provide comprehensive dual diagnosis support, including medication management and therapy for severe mental illness.

While 12-step meetings are not a requirement of outpatient treatment, the staff strongly encourages them (or other peer support meeting such as SMART Recovery) and furnishes clients with a list of local meetings.

Unlike many outpatient programs, North Tampa Behavioral Health includes experiential and recreational therapy in outpatient treatment. Clients participate in art therapy and meditation classes and are often transported to a nearby gym for games and exercise education.


North Tampa Behavioral Health suggests that clients bring their loved ones in for family therapy at least once every two weeks during treatment. Clinicians are committed to helping clients create effective aftercare plans and work with them to locate therapists for on-going counseling and create a schedule for peer support meetings. Transportation services are available for clients who live within 20 miles of the facility.

In Summary

North Tampa Behavioral Health is a new addition to central Florida’s recovery community. With its short-term detox and two tracks of intensive outpatient therapy, North Tampa Behavioral Health is a solid option for those in need of focused, concentrated outpatient intervention that enables them to keep up with their responsibilities at home and at work.

  1. This place is a nightmare! My father was kept for 6 days. He was never given a change of clothes(even though we brought them in) until the night before he left. We had absolutely no communication with a Dr, or case worker except first night to get permission to see him, and last day when we rec’d a call he was discharged. I left numerous messages everyday , but NO ONE CALLS BACK!!! You cant even call your loved one except for 2 time periods a day, and most of the time the calls don’t get answered. My father was attacked by his roommate and they didn’t even tell me. I confronted them and asked what happened and they said the person had done this before and my dad was moved out of his room. IF they did this before WTH was he doing in my father’s room. He was attacked again in the commons area on another day. There reply sorry this happens in this type of place…BULL CRAP!! I could write a page long paragraph of why you shouldn’t go here. My next step is to contact State of Florida, and AHCA(Agency for Healthcare Administration)

  2. I had the same experience last night. Received a phone call from a friend that informed me the ex was in this place. I called and the receptionist said she was there and transferred me to the “wing” she was located and the idiot who answered the phone couldn’t even tell me if she was there or not. He works there but has no idea who he is watching???? Wouldn’t recommend this place to a corpse.

  3. I have never dealt with a rehab facility that was so disorganized, and unknowledgable. We marchman acted my brother, who is grown, but has numerous challenges. We have power of attorney and guardianship. He had been using drugs and putting himself and others in danger. We called to follow up after he arrived and called daily to coordinate therapies and programs, as well as provide his medications. He had been there a week, we called every number we were provided, gave his info and pin, and didn’t get a return call ever! No one could answer our questions, and it was not because of confidentiality. It was from lack of knowledge, ignorance and indifference. Everyone here passes the buck, and is only interested in keeping someone there for payment. Counceling, what they call it is almost non existent and scarce. They allowed visits, and allowed the same people contact that brought him drugs and alcohol, to see him and have contact while in this “intensive treatment”. I have tried to contact people to get results from here, and they don’t respond. I’m now going down to the judge that signed my order to explain and see if the courts can help. This is unacceptable.
