FAQ for Rehab

At The Family Place, we are focused on creating an environment where our clients can feel safe, supported, and comfortable during treatment. Individuals who have never participated in a residential treatment facility often have questions about what to expect and how to prepare for recovery and rehabilitation. The Family Place is committed to create a supportive community. If you have any questions not answered in our FAQ, call our office to speak with an intake specialist. 

What Items Should I Bring With Me? 

Treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) can be emotionally and physically demanding. Comfortable clothes and personal items with sentimental value, such as pictures of loved ones, can help ease some emotional discomfort. Other things you should bring include: 

  • Any necessary (pre-approved) prescription medication
  • Toiletries 
  • Clothes for sleeping and outdoor and indoor clothes
  • Shoes that you can use for walking in nature
  • Recreational items like books and music 

We ask that clients avoid bringing the following items: 

  • Alcohol or drugs 
  • Weapons including knives and bladed items
  • Clothing or personal items that display messages or images that might be upsetting to other clients 

If you are uncertain about whether you should bring a specific item, call our office to get clarification. When necessary, we may confiscate items that break our policies, and in those instances, we will return the items when you leave the facility.

Does The Family Place Accept Pregnant Women for Treatment?

The Family Place is one of the few facilities that treat pregnant women for substance misuse and co-occurring disorders. Women in crisis can come to us for support and a family-like atmosphere that focuses on healing and personal growth. We offer educational programs and skill development related to motherhood and pregnancy. To learn more, visit our Pregnant Program page.

Can I Attend Appointments With My OB-GYN During Treatment?

Pregnant women local to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, can continue seeing their OB-GYN during treatment to ensure their baby’s safety and health. We make sure that all pregnant women who come to our facility have access to high-quality medical care. Our clinical team will work with you and your doctor to determine the best approach for your situation. Treatment for pregnant women usually involves transitioning from dangerous substances to prescription drugs using medication-assisted treatment (MAT). We provide mothers with the resources they need to follow the medical suggestions of their OB-GYN during treatment. 

Can I Bring My Child With Me?

The Family Place values family involvement in the recovery process, and we do everything possible to ensure you can maintain a close connection with your family during the treatment process. However, children cannot stay at the facility. You may be able to visit with them in person, on the phone, or online. Call our office to get more information on our visiting policies for children. 

How Long Do Programs Typically Last? 

Most individuals who participate in programs at The Family Place are here for approximately 30 days. However, we tailor treatment plans to meet the needs of the individual. You may have a longer or shorter stay depending on the severity of your symptoms and any complications or co-occurring conditions. We offer multiple levels of care, which means you may transition out of one level of care and into another while remaining at our facility. 

What Information Will I Need to Provide? 

The initial assessment process involves speaking with a qualified intake specialist. To get the most out of our programs, you will need to provide us with all relevant information about your current and past mental and physical health. You will want to have the following information available during the discussion with our intake specialist: 

  • Any official mental health or medical diagnosis 
  • A list of any medications you are taking and their dose 
  • Family and personal history of mental health and substance use disorders (SUDs)
  • Contact information for your doctor, therapist, case manager, or anyone else relevant to your recovery 
  • Your recovery goals 
  • Any active symptoms 

Can My Family Visit? 

We encourage families to participate in the recovery process. In later stages of treatment, family therapy can bring further healing and repair relationship issues caused by the damaging influence of addiction. However, because we value the safety and privacy of each client, physical visits to the facility might be limited. 

What Is the Relapse Policy? 

The Family Place prohibits clients from bringing any form of drug, alcohol, or medication on the premises unless prescribed by a medical professional. We understand that relapse is a part of the recovery process for many people, and we consider each on a case-by-case basis. However, we need to evaluate the safety of all our clients, and anyone who relapses on-site must leave the program. We may refer individuals who struggle with chronic relapses to more appropriate treatment programs. 

 

What if I Have Co-Occurring Chronic Conditions? 

Co-occurring conditions often accompany substance use disorder. In some cases, they may be chronic and require additional therapy or medication treatment. If you have a co-occurring disorder, our clinicians will collaborate with you to create a personalized care plan that ensures the best possible outcome. Some of the co-occurring conditions we treat include: 

  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Borderline personality disorder (BPD)
