Overview of Manatee Glens
Manatee Glens, located in the city of Bradenton, south of Tampa is a behavioral health center for individuals suffering from addiction, substance abuse, and mental health disorders. The facility became a part of the Centerstone Behavioral Hospital and Addiction Center in 2015 and expanded its reach to thousands to people in Florida. The facility focuses on the health and wellness of its clients and believes that although there are multiple paths to recovery, each patient has their own individual path. For this reason, treatment plans are tailored to suit the wants, goals, and needs of a client. The facility provides a support system for adults struggling with addiction which helps them bounce back from relapse and achieve set goals. The facility also has programs for teens, less intensive than the adult services, which seeks to help substance-addicted, struggling youth achieve long-lasting recovery. The hospital offers emergency mental health services and has special programs for persons suffering from trauma, suicidal thoughts, and co-occurring mental disorders. Patients are offered Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) which may include drugs like anti-depressants and mood stabilizers to guide them into a comfortable detoxification process. Residential, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs are also made available for patients.
