If you require inpatient rehab for yourself or someone you love, turn to the compassionate addiction experts at BoardPrep Tampa in Florida. We are an accredited drug and alcohol rehabilitation center offering highly effective and affordable addiction treatment to clients currently living anywhere in the country.

Our personalized recovery program offers a multidimensional approach to substance abuse and addiction. Our interdisciplinary team of licensed, certified, and highly experienced abuse and addiction specialists evaluates each client and designs a customized, comprehensive plan for treatment and recovery. We also specialize in tailoring treatment with best-practice elements that result in professional documentation that allows health care professionals or others who work in positions of trust to safely return to work.

Inpatient Rehab Tampa FLSome of the benefits our clients discover when they turn to us for inpatient rehab services in Tampa include:

  • Our person-in-environment philosophy, which allows us to understand how a client’s environment affects his or her behavior, and to devise effective strategies to make the necessary changes that will support his or her recovery
  • A minimum of 21 clinical service hours delivered by licensed and board-certified experts per week
  • An in-community recovery immersion system with weekly, supervised, “sober fun” activities
  • Twelve-step facilitation versus referral to AA
  • BoardPrep strives to adhere to the NIDA best-practice recommendation of approximately 90 days of primary treatment for diagnosed substance use disorders when inpatient is recommended.


When inpatient treatment is recommended, as the starting point, it is because the assessment has highlighted specific clinical needs.

  • Medical/psychiatric safety
  • Therapeutic intensity
  • Comprehensive support

The assessment also helps predict an optimal estimated length of stay. Although length of stay is always individualized to the person, an estimated length of stay is needed for planning purposes for the individual, the family, employer and provider.

The Collaborative Treatment Process

The first 3 phases of BoardPrep’s 5-phase system are the foundation for continued recovery in a less structured setting. Based on ongoing ASAM dimensional assessment, many clients are recommended to return home and continue their recovery in an outpatient or intensive outpatient setting.

When clients transition from B-phase to C-phase, a comprehensive clinical review is undertaken by the interdisciplinary treatment team. Clients are endorsed for transition to outpatient or intensive outpatient at 6 weeks (upon completion of C-phase) based on the following criteria:

  • Behavioral stability and compliance with treatment plan
  • Medication compliance, including Vivitrol when recommended
  • Positive response to treatment
  • Completion of individualized assignment packet
  • Endorsement of professional monitoring program (med pros)
  • “Pre-admission” to OP or IOP completed prior to transition

After inpatient rehab, we employ cutting-edge monitoring tools and recovery support practices to allow for the highest potential for long-term success. Tools like Soberlink (a portable breathalyzer), and Affinity eHealth (which requires the client to log in every day for randomized testing), help ensure ongoing accountability and a return to a healthy, addiction-free life.
