South Seminole Hospital

The UF & Shands Florida Recovery Center at Orlando Health 855.265.4372 | 407.260.PAIN (7246)

The UF & Shands Florida Recovery Center at Orlando Health bridges the gap in outpatient services for people suffering with an addiction who are receiving fragmented inpatient and outpatient services, or those who are leaving the Central Florida area to seek addiction treatment elsewhere. UF & Shands Florida Recovery Center at Orlando Health will serve as a destination for the evaluation and treatment of people facing alcohol and drug addiction. Because the Florida Recovery Center is affiliated with the University of Florida and UF's McKnight Brain Institute, patients have the benefit of a bench-to-bedside approach to addiction science, receiving treatment based on the latest addiction medicine research.

Timothy Huckaby, MD will evaluate patients, consult with physicians and healthcare professionals at South Seminole Hospital and others in the Central Florida community, and oversee an intensive outpatient program (IOP), a three- to six-week program that integrates patients back into their communities, families and work lives.

Dr. Huckaby and his clinical team will examine some of the behaviors that caused the patient to have difficulty in the past and change those behaviors to establish and maintain a sober support system. The FRC team will provide family, couples and group counseling as well. The goal of the program is to help those in recovery effectively manage the social, spiritual, physical and emotional aspects of life to maintain a lifestyle of recovery.
