With this in mind, The Blackberry Center offers a comprehensive treatment program in a tranquil, nurturing, retreat-like environment. Our dedicated staff tailors each patient’s treatment to meet their specific needs to promote long-term recovery.

The Dual Diagnosis Difference

At The Blackberry Center, our clinical care staff administer compassionate, respectful care to adults with co-occurring substance use disorders and mental health issues. Oftentimes, individuals addicted to drugs and alcohol are more likely to develop mental illnesses, and vise versa.

Left untreated, these conditions worsen each other and drastically lower your quality of life. That’s where our team of doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, and other clinical care can help.

With our proven, evidence-based treatment modalities, our team helps patients in the central Florida area make full recoveries. By treating these issues simultaneously and addressing their dangerous connection, we solve issues at the root. We will work with you at every step of the recovery process: from evaluation and stabilization to discharge and aftercare planning.
