Where Can You Find Addiction Treatment in Brandon, FL

Situated in Florida’s Hillsborough County, Brandon, FL, is a Tampa suburb with a population of approximately 114,626 people.2 Like those in myriad other U.S. cities, some residents of Brandon and nearby areas struggle with substance misuse issues. In fact, the Florida Department of Health reports rising drug overdose deaths in Hillsborough County. While overdose deaths spiked from 18.5 per 100,000 people to 32.1 in 2020, by 2022, that number had climbed to 34.9.3

Not surprisingly, then, the state houses more than 550 alcohol and drug treatment centers, 98 of which are positioned within 50 miles of Brandon.1 Among these facilities, two leading evidence-based treatment centers stand out:

  • River Oaks Treatment Center: Located in neighboring Riverview, FL, River Oaks Treatment Center is just a 20-minute drive from downtown Brandon. The facility offers multiple levels of care, including medically managed detox, inpatient rehab, partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), telehealth, and more. Plus, River Oaks Treatment Center offers programs for special populations, such as members of the LGBTQ+ community, Veterans, those with co-occurring disorders, and more.
  • Recovery First Treatment Center: Positioned roughly 4 hours from Brandon and just north of the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area, Recovery First Treatment Center combines evidence-based therapeutics with world-class treatment programs similar to those of River Oaks.

Clearly, then, Brandon and the sounding areas offer a host of treatment options, providing you or someone you love with customized care, right in your backyard.

How Much Does It Cost to Go to Rehab in Brandon, FL?

Since treatment plans are customized to meet the unique needs of each individual, it’s difficult to predict exactly what someone would pay for treatment in Brandon. That said, costs are often dependent on several factors such as:

  • Level of care: Inpatient treatment typically includes 24/7 care as well as food, housing, staff, etc. Thus, inpatient care is typically more expensive than outpatient treatment. However, there are different levels of outpatient care and therefore different costs associated with each.
  • Location: It costs more to keep the lights on, buy food, and pay for resources in some areas than others. So the location of the facility and the cost of living in that area is also a consideration.
  • Facility amenities: Treatment facilities offer various services and amenities, all of which can affect cost. For instance, you may choose to pay more for a private room, and facilities may offer pools, gyms, equestrian centers, and more, all of which can impact facility pricing.
  • Duration of treatment: Just as with most services, the longer the service lasts the more it will typically cost.
  • Payment type: Cost variations are also related to how you  pay for the care, with typical payment options including health insurance, self pay, financing, sliding-fee scales, etc.

For those with insurance, the best way to get a handle on your out-of-pocket expenses is to verify your benefits with your insurance company. Or better yet, contact American Addiction Centers, which owns the two aforementioned facilities, to do the legwork for you. Available for a confidential conversation 24/7 at , AAC’s admissions navigators can not only verify benefits for use at one of AAC’s many facilities nationwide, but they can also discuss treatment options, answer your questions, and more.

Keep in mind, there are other ways to pay for treatment (as described below) for those that don’t have insurance. An inability to pay doesn’t have to be a barrier to treatment.

Does Insurance Pay for Rehab in Brandon, FL?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that almost all insurance policies offer some type of coverage for substance use disorder treatment.4 This applies to employer-sponsored group health plans and ones you might purchase off the Health Insurance Marketplace.

In addition, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) prevents large group health plans from imposing unreasonable benefit limits for mental health and substance use disorder services. Put simply, they cannot purposely make this treatment more expensive to keep policyholders from getting it.5

Each policy, however, offers a different level of coverage. Additionally, deductibles, co-pays, and more mean you may pay for a portion of   treatment costs. Insurance providers may also require you to choose an in-network treatment center, which contracts with the insurance carrier to provide potentially lower costs to members. So again, pricing varies.

Given the myriad insurance coverage options available, treatment centers often accept payment from a host of providers. For example, River Oaks Treatment Center accepts multiple types of insurance and is in-network with providers including:

In addition to the aforementioned private insurance options, many facilities near Brandon, FL, take public insurance payments as well. The following options are accepted at the respective number of facilities within 50 miles of Brandon:1

  • Medicaid: 49.
  • Federal military insurance (Tricare): 38.
  • Medicare: 27.
  • Federal or government funding for treatment: 39.
  • State-financed insurance other than Medicaid: 35.
  • Indian Health Service/Tribal/Urban (ITU) funds: 14.

Types of Addiction Treatment in Brandon, FL

Addiction professionals and healthcare providers typically work with patients to determine the appropriate level of care to meet their needs. These levels of care include:6

  • Detox: As its name implies medically assisted detox is a form of treatment that supports patients as they withdraw from substances. Often the first step in a patient’s continuum of care, detox is offered in inpatient and outpatient settings.
  • Inpatient treatment: With inpatient care, patients live in the facility where they receive 24/7 care and supervision. Various therapeutic interventions are employed during inpatient treatment, such as forms of talk therapies, one-on-one and group counseling, pharmacotherapy, and more—all of which aim to foster patient coping skills and promote long-term recovery.
  • Outpatient treatment: For some people with substance use issues, outpatient care is the first stop (following detox) on their treatment journey. For others, it follows more intensive inpatient care. Outpatient care offers many of the same therapies as inpatient treatment, but services are lower in intensity.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs): IOPs are a type of outpatient treatment that’s generally less intense than inpatient care but more rigorous traditional outpatient care.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs): Also known as day treatment programs, PHPs allow patients to live at home while attending intense treatment. As a sort of halfway point between outpatient and inpatient programs, PHPs require patients to participate in multiple days of treatment each week for several hours each day.
  • Aftercare and sober living. Some form of aftercare treatment is recommended for most people who have gone through inpatient and/or outpatient programs. Aftercare can include ongoing therapy, sober living, 12-Step programs, etc.

The Brandon, FL, area offers myriad treatment options within a 50-mile radius. They include:1

  • Detox: 23.
  • Outpatient detox: 9.
  • Hospital inpatient detox: 4.
  • Residential/inpatient treatment: 26.
  • Outpatient: 80.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs): 31.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs): 15.
  • Telehealth: 76.

Many facilities offer a mix of treatment types. For instance, inpatient treatment programs may also offer outpatient services and may either provide detox or have affiliations with detox facilities.

How to Pay for Rehabs in Brandon, FL

In addition to the aforementioned public and private health insurance options, some Florida rehabs accept other forms of payment such as:

  • Financing and sliding-fee scales: Rehabs will sometimes offer an ongoing payment plan that allows you to pay a certain amount monthly until the balance is paid off. Others may employ a sliding-fee scale to adjust the cost of treatment based on what you can afford.
  • Low cost/free rehabs: Some states offer low-cost or free treatment for those who qualify.
  • Local, state, or federal funding: Organizations such as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provide grants and scholarships to cover the cost of addiction care for those who qualify. Additional state-funded treatment options may also be available.
  • Special population funding options: You may qualify for special funding if you are a member of a unique population such as pregnant women, Veterans, tribal members, and more.

To provide some perspective on the availability of alternative funding, consider that more than 70 Florida treatment centers offer sliding-fee scales and/or payment assistance, and 6 of these facilities can be found within 50 miles of Brandon.1

What Addictions Are Treated at Brandon Rehabs?

Many Brandon, FL, treatment centers can treat disorders related to a variety of substances, such as alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine, opioids, prescription drugs, and more. That said, some facilities specialize in treatment for specific substances. For example, of the 98 facilities near Brandon, 28 indicate that they don’t handle alcohol use disorders, and 6 don’t treat opioid use disorders.1

In addition, facilities may or may not be equipped to handle co-occurring disorders, which is when a mental health disorder (e.g., depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.) occurs alongside a substance use disorder.7 Most American Addiction Centers treatment facilities, including those in Florida, treat co-occurring disorders using an integrated approach of therapeutic and medicinal therapies.

How to Find Rehab Centers in Brandon, FL

If you’re struggling with substance misuse, rehab is vital to your health and your future. So it’s important to ensure the facility you choose can meet your unique needs.

When searching for a suitable treatment facility, start by deciding what you want from rehab. That is, what problems do you want to solve? What behaviors do you hope to work on? What are some of your most prominent triggers? Make a list of the things you wish to accomplish so you have a good understanding of your own needs and can then ask facilities how they can assist you in accomplishing your goals.

Once you have a list of potential facilities, review each treatment center’s website, read online reviews, and prepare a list of questions to ask each one to help you create an apples-to-apples comparison. Some questions you might want to ask include:

  • What kinds of treatments do you offer?

  • What licenses and accreditations do the facility and staff hold?
