Long-Term Mental Health Facility in Florida: Why Choose Us?

Mental health disorders are complex, and there are no one-size-fits-all treatments. We personalize care to meet your needs. Our intensive programs give you the time, tools and clinical support you need for long-term recovery.

At La Amistad, you’ll find:

  • Evidence-based therapies: We draw on a range of treatments to help you heal. Treatments include trauma-informed therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and various wellness services, including art, equine and horticulture therapy. We focus on your wellness and personal growth.
  • Skilled providers: The experienced staff at La Amistad is by your side throughout treatment. We have board-certified psychiatrists, licensed therapists, an addiction medicine specialist and a nursing staff available at all times. You establish long-term relationships with your providers built on mutual trust, respect and honesty.
  • Care for co-occurring conditions: Mental health disorders and substance use disorders often occur together. We treat these co-occurring disorders by exploring how past trauma or other psychological issues fuel addiction. Our in-depth approach is highly effective. Many people who relapse after other treatment programs find success at La Amistad.
  • National accreditation: We are fully accredited by the Joint Commission®. Their Gold Seal of Approval® means we meet or exceed the strictest guidelines for patient care. La Amistad voluntarily undergoes regular reviews by the Joint Commission to ensure the quality and consistency of our services.

Our Levels of Care

At La Amistad, we meet you where you’re at in your recovery journey. We offer several levels of care, and our clinicians recommend the most appropriate program for your needs:

  • Residential program: During residential rehabilitation, you live at our treatment center for several weeks or months for intensive therapy. If you’ve just finished short-term inpatient stabilization, you can step down to our residential program.
  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP): In our adult partial hospitalization program, you no longer stay overnight but take part in structured outpatient therapy on our campus for seven to eight hours each day, five days a week.
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP): You have several hours of outpatient therapy each week as you become more independent and transition back into your community. We offer in-person and virtual adult IOP for people in our mental health program. Our substance abuse IOP program is in-person only.

Our Programs for Adults

Our mental health and substance abuse programs for adults are voluntary. We encourage and expect our patients to want treatment and to play an active role in their care. Our goal is to uncover the root cause of the disorder you have and give you the tools you need to heal.
