The Behavioral Health Hospital in Orlando, FL, for Every Age Group
Central Florida Behavioral Hospital is here to be a beacon of help and hope for children, adolescents, and adults suffering from mental health and substance abuse disorders. The services at our behavioral health hospital in Orlando, FL, help patients gain the skills they need to walk the path to recovery. We use specialized treatments and supportive services to provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient programs. All of them feature evidence-based therapies that meet the individual needs of our patients.
The Affective Disorder Program at Central Florida Behavioral Hospital offers a unique program designed for adults with a primary affective disorder such as depression, bipolar and/or anxiety disorders.
The Persistent Mental Health Program is designed to provide treatment to individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and bipolar disorder. These patients often experience complex symptoms that require ongoing treatment and management.
The Dual Diagnosis Program is an inpatient treatment program for adults ages 18 and older who suffer from a co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorder. Our program is deeply embedded in Alcoholics Anonymous’ 12-step recovery program and includes weekly meetings on-site.
A unique inpatient program designed specifically for mature adults who suffer from mental health or dual diagnosis disorders. This setting is designed as a place where patients can thrive in an intimate, age specific and non-confrontational peer group.
Treatment occurs in a highly structured environment which provides an opportunity for children ages 5-13 to learn and practice behavioral skills to manage a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and family problems.
Treatment occurs in a highly structured environment which provides an opportunity for teens ages 14-17 to learn and practice behavioral skills to manage a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and family problems.
Electroconvulsive therapy is a treatment option for adults 18 years and older with severe behavioral health issues who have either not responded to medications or whose symptoms are too severe to permit medication trials.
PHP can be an effective solution for patients in need of an intensive, structured, daily therapeutic environment who do not require 24-hour care. It can help individuals transition from inpatient care or it can provide the support and structure needed to prevent an inpatient stay.
The outpatient services we offer allow patients to continue working and going to school, so they can mend their lives without disrupting them. We’ve designed it to include a schedule that’s both part-time and intensive. Anyone who isn’t sure whether inpatient or outpatient therapy is right for them need only ask our highly qualified staff; we’re always happy to help.
