Mental Health and Addiction Treatment for Professionals

Young Adult Program


Dual Diagnosis Treatment

National Best Practice Provider

BoardPrep Recovery Center in Tampa, Florida meets the highest standards in the field. Our rehab aligns with national best-practice guidelines, prescribed by leading researchers. At BoardPrep, an addiction psychiatrist leads a team of experts, offering all levels of care, tailoring the treatment to individual needs.

Rehab includes treatment for other mental health problems.  For instance, depression, anxiety and trauma often play a big role in substance use disorders. Therefore, BoardPrep’s addiction psychiatrists see patients at least weekly for the first month of inpatient treatment. Additionally, the clinical psychologist completes objective testing, usually within the first two weeks of inpatient addiction treatment. Also, addiction treatment addresses family and environmental risk issues. A licensed and experienced therapist performs weekly webinars with the families and schedules family sessions as needed.

Therapists deliver one to one therapy sessions at least weekly but sometimes more often depending on individual needs. However, some people benefit from several individual sessions a week. Group therapies include cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational techniques, experiential work and recovery support.
