Tampa’s Top Inpatient Mental Health & Drug Addiction Treatment Program

Many people who are struggling with complex mental disorders or drug addiction may be referred by their general physician to an inpatient treatment program to allow for stabilization and care. However, a referral is not required to come for a no-cost assessment at North Tampa Behavioral Health.

Inpatient Treatment Overview

An inpatient treatment program will let those who need 24 hour care and support begin upon a path of healing for their struggles in a safe, controlled environment, away from the stressors of everyday life. Having the ability to focus solely upon recovery away from the outside environment is an ideal way for many people to begin their voyage of self-discovery. Our staff, composed of doctors, nurses, psychiatrists, therapists, and support staff will be behind you every step of the way.

When you come to our leading mental health and drug addiction treatment program just north of Tampa for help, you’ll first undergo a series of assessments to allow us to create a treatment plan that meets all of your needs – mind, body, and spirit.

Bonding with others facing related struggles will afford you all the opportunity to support each other during your journey.
