The Basics

The Recovery Village is a substance abuse treatment facility in Umatilla, a small town not too far from the city of Orlando, Florida and the Ocala National Forest. Founded in 2012, it is a member of the larger Recovery Village group, which has locations all over the country, and operates residential, outpatient and detox services for adult men and women.

Facility and Meals

The Recovery Village’s residential program operates in a converted children’s hospital. The 60-bed facility consists of all double and triple gender-specific rooms. Most bedrooms have two big beds with fresh linens and pillows, bedside lamps, large windows and ceiling fans. The rooms also have a private bathroom that the clients share with their roommate.

There are a variety of recreation rooms with large flat screen TVs. The therapy rooms are located just a short walk from the living quarters. The Recovery Village’s grounds also have a gym, pool, small ponds, meditation spaces, basketball hoop and a pool. The gym is equipped with treadmills, press-up benches and stationary bikes.

The on-site chef prepares and serves three healthy meals a day. Clients dine together as a group and the food is served buffet-style. Snacks and juices are available throughout the day. The Recovery Village allows sugar, but caffeine is strictly prohibited

Residential treatment clients and those in detox are not allowed to have either cell phones or laptops. Clients may, however, go into town or go sightseeing outside the facility under strict supervision.

Treatment Protocol and Team

The Recovery Village offers a medical detox program. During detox, clients have around-the-clock support. The detox period typically runs for 10 days but can last as long as the clients need.

The residential program is 30 to 90 days and consists of both group and individual therapy. Clients attend individual therapy three times a day and meet with a psychiatrist once a week for a psych evaluation. Counselors use a variety of evidence- based treatment techniques including CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Sessions cover family dynamics, relapse prevention and psycho-educational lectures on the nature of addiction.

The Recovery Village requires clients to attend daily AA or NA meetings. Counselors introduce the 12 steps in group therapy but it’s up to clients whether or not they wish to begin working them. Dual diagnosis support is offered, including medication management.

The organization operates a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) both as a step-down form the residential program as well as a standalone treatment option. Like the residential program, the PHP consists of both group and individual therapy. The PHP’s length and intensity is based on the needs of the client.

Recovery Village also operates an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that consists of both group and individual therapy. Clients have the option to set their schedule in the IOP.

The organization also offers family therapy that includes both individual counseling with the family members, as well as weekend events for family and friends of clients that include group meetings, lectures and longer sessions with the client’s primary therapist.

When clients complete one of Recovery Village’s treatment programs, they have the option of continuing care through the organization’s aftercare support. Aftercare consists of relapse prevention planning, assistance finding proper sober living and occasional individual counseling sessions.

The staff at the facility consists of a LCSW, a medical doctor, a psychiatrist and a team of nurses.

Bonus Amenities

Also offered are yoga, equine therapy, martial arts, and massages. Clients can participate in off-site recreational activities on Saturdays including bowling and going to the movies.
