Q: Do I have to live in the Tampa Bay area?

A: No, you do not have to live in the Tampa Bay area to come to True Path Recovery. Our residential treatment facility welcomes people from all over Florida and the United States. In fact, many people travel to our facilities because of our unique location, with close proximity to the beach.

Q: What's involved in your drug and alcohol treatment programs?

A: Our drug and alcohol treatment programs are specifically designed for each individual's needs. We do not believe in fitting our clients to a program, rather we fit customized plans to our clients. Generally speaking, all of our treatment programs encompass group therapy sessions, family therapy, art therapy groups, individual counseling, exercise, meditation, yoga, massages, and group recreational outings.

Q: How long does treatment program last?

A: The length of stay varies from person to person. Our minimum stay is 28 days, but we feel most drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities do their clients a disservice by putting a cap on the length of stay. At True Path Recovery, we allow you to recover at your own pace.

Q: Do I have to leave my job to enter your program? What about my family?

A: You do not have to leave your job or your family to enter our program. In fact, True Path Recovery offers an Professional Treatment Program specifically designed for working professionals.

A: Yes, although the majority of our clients attend group therapy sessions during the daytime and have evenings free to themselves.

Q: What happens if I experience withdrawal? Do you offer medical detox treatment?

A: Withdrawal is a common side effect of ceasing alcohol and drug use, and often times, it makes sobriety very difficult. While we do not provide medication at our facility, we offer and extensive referral network that includes medical detox professionals.

A: Upon completion of treatment, we will work with you to determine the next step. Whether it's going back home or living in a long-term residential housing facility, we will continue to provide you with the guidance and resources, including assistance finding a job, so you can confidently set foot back into society.

Q: What if I relapse?

A: Sometimes it takes a few tries before actualizing a long-term goal. At True Path Recovery, we will continue to work with you and support you, should you return after a relapse. Many people are embarrassed and even ashamed when this happens, but rest assured, we pass no judgment on our clients. We are whole-heartedly committed to helping you see your journey of recovery through.

Q: I have a family member or loved one who has just completed the program. How can I help him or her re-acclimate to previous surroundings and maintain sobriety?

A: Often times family and friends provide the necessary leverage for those suffering from addiction to seek treatment. Once your loved one enrolled in our program, it's important that you remain supportive. We offer family counseling sessions to foster better understanding of the problem and provide strategies so that your loved on can thrive. Once your loved one has finished treatment, they'll need your continued support, but these sessions can help prepare you for life after treatment.

Q: I have a loved one who refuses to get help. What can I do?

The voice of many is stronger than one, and the leverage of several loved ones in the form of an intervention is often what is needed. We offer Intervention Services in Tampa Bay which include coaching, facilitating, and providing transportation from the intervention to our facility.


If you fear that your loved one is in sudden danger of hurting him or herself, or other people, call 9-1-1. A person under the influence of powerful, mind-altering drugs such as methamphetamines can be dangerous. For the safety of both you and your loved one, sometimes law enforcement may need to get involved.
