NAPLES, Fla. - Although none of the treatment facilities could legally comment as to whether Radel would be staying with them, he does have several options in the Naples area, including the David Lawrence Center.
The David Lawrence Crossroads Campus specializes in short term residential care.
That means for two to five weeks, patients are put through an intense program related to their addiction.
"Over five hours of therapy services a day, peer support groups," said Clinical Supervisor Nancy Dauphinais.
In Representative Radel's case, an addiction to alcohol, and other harder drugs, benefit from inpatient treatment.
"First goal is to establish abstinence so for some people, they need to be in a structured environment," said Dauphinais.
If the US Representative chose David Lawrence, he would have access to a private room, if he wished.
And be allowed to use a computer to do his job as a US Representative, unless it hindered recovery.
"To relearn life skills that help them to cope with life and relationships and jobs and stress and to heal physically, emotionally," said Dauphinais.
The Hazleden Center, according to its website, offers more privacy, sometimes seperating the men and women.
And the Willough at Naples specializes in mental health issues that can cause substance abuse.
Either way, one professional says Radel has a long road to recovery.
"A person does need to maintain vigilance for the rest of their lives when they suffer from a substance use disorder."
When asked whether the Rep would get special treatment, the staff said every patient is treated the same.
