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.
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.
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.
