Alex’s Journey Towards Recovery
“I Kept Telling Myself this Won’t Work”The experience I’ve received here at The River Source has been nothing short of a miracle. Living my life through self-will was a living hell. I was using and drinking for 12 years and where it led me to was being homeless, on the run and all bridges burnt to the ground. I thought I was hopeless and there was no way out of this living hell. I asked the last person I had left for help, for I was in fear of death, and it was given. I was taken to The River Source and I admit I was scared. I kept telling myself this won’t work, I won’t be accepted and I won’t understand any of the suggestions given here. The longer I stayed here the sooner I realized this was not the case. The last 60 days here has been more liberating, encouraging, and helpful then I’ve ever had in the last 12 years of pain and misery. 26 years old and now I can start growing up as I grow with this program living my life one day at a time with God and the suggestions so freely given to me. To the newcomer, I know your scared and that you feel there is no light at the end of your tunnel. I’ve been where you’re at, felt what you’ve felt, seen and done what you’ve done. And I can tell you with the utmost sincerity that there is a solution, just take that first step. Give yourself a chance to live!
“My 13th Relapse Brought Me to The River Source”My 13th relapse brought me to The River Source. At The River Source my experience was unlike any other facility I have ever been to. I was greeted with open arms. Everyone including the staff and the clients are all awesome. With what they offered to me when I got there, I have now got to pass it on to the new clients because I was once there and I know exactly what they are going through. I have and will continue to recommend The River Source to anyone because it has given me my life back. My father has gotten his son back, and my brother and my sister their brother back, someone that they can rely on and look up to.
“I Came Here Feeling Lost & Now I Have A New Direction in Life”I can’t thank Riversource enough for all they’ve given me. Entering a facility like this is a scary experience but the staff, nurses, techs, cooks, and patients here never failed in making me feel comfortable and welcome. They’ve opened my eyes to so much about my life and myself. I was very wary of their holistic approach but now I’m so thankful I gave it a try. They offer yoga, vitamins, IV bags, acupuncture, sauna, and have a medical team that comes in a few times a week with free services as well. You leave here feeling like an entirely new person inside and out. It was strange coming into an all woman facility but I’ve made some of the best friendships in my life and learned how to be a friend as well.
I’m working on mending my family, financial, and legal situations and I know none of that would of been possible if The Riversource didn’t give me a foundation. Almost all the staff are in recovery and they know exactly where you’re coming from. Never did I feel misunderstood, judged, or out of place and I’ve felt that way my entire life. I highly recommend this place. I’ve been to treatment before and have never found a place quite like the Riversource. They completely focus on the solution and do everything in their power to help you succeed. The rest is up to you. I came in here feeling completely lost and now I feel like I have a new direction in life, and I know this is only the beginning. If you’re looking at this place, give yourself a chance and just come.
“I Was Not Sure I Would Gain Anything from the Experience”I came to The River Source after having multiple trials in recovery. I was not sure I would gain anything from the experience before I arrived because I “Knew Too Much”, they quickly changed my thoughts after engaging in their program. The 12 step approach is one I have never seen before. They use a 1st step model that truly made a deep impact on me. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone who has been in recovery in the past as well as those who are attempting for their first time.
I feel the staff is well trained and goes above and beyond to meet all client NEEDS as opposed to what we think we need in early recovery. I now feel that I have the tools I was lacking in the past and I am ready to begin my new adventure into the world!
“I Was Beyond Broken”I have been to multiple facilities over the years and can honestly say The River Source is by far the most understanding and helpful when it came to my addiction. They welcome you to a comfortable environment, amazing staff and give you an amazing start to the rest of your life – if your willing to follow direction and take advice. I was beyond broken when I first came to The River Source and they made me realize there is a piece to life I have been missing for years and that is sobriety. Something I’ve wanted for so long but never truly knew what it meant until I came here. If you’re just as broken as I was and want to get started with the rest of your life, The River Source is where you want to be…but remember it only works if you work it.
“I Had Accepted that I Could Never Get Sober”I cant thank The Riversource enough for their help in my recovery. I originally put off and delayed my arrival there, not wanting to come, but finally came. My first few days, I wanted to leave and missed my family and home. I didn’t think I had that bad of a problem with my using. I hated certain aspects of my addiction, but I had accepted that I could never get sober. I had tried on my own many times, but couldn’t make it longer than a week. I also thought that since I was prescribed some medications, that it was “ok” to take them. Though that led me to abusing them when I didn’t have my drug of choice. Riversource staff helped save my life. I realized how unhappy I really was, and how my life definitely was completely unmanageable, & I know it was only going to get worse if I continued that path of using.
Working the 12 steps with the help of Riversource, combined with the best counselor I’ve ever had, Yoga daily, IV vitamins, Aminos, group therapy (which I thought I would dislike, but ended up loving!), and a team of staff who truly, and genuinely care for my well being and success, has completely changed me! The staff feels like family, and I have grown to love them a lot, & I look forward to coming back for visits & meetings. I am 100% sure that I could not have found a better treatment center. I am also thankful for their holistic approach to handling my health needs. I have learned that I can live a life drug free! I highly recommend The Riversource!
“Making the Choice to go to Inpatient Rehab is Scary”This place saved my life. The RiverSource will teach you understanding of yourself and your addiction in a loving and healing environment. The perception of rehabs are very negative in nature (and I thought the same thing before having come here) but after leaving, I couldn’t believe what a place of healing, restoration, peace, safety and love that the RiverSource provides. I read in other reviews before I chose the RiverSource that people had met lifelong friends here and I didn’t believe that would be possible. Now I can say the same thing, I have met lifelong friends here. Making the choice to go to inpatient rehab is scary (because none of us have entered rehab on a winning streak!) but do yourself the greatest gift you can and do it.
“I Never Thought This Painful Cycle Would End”I’ve tried for over 5 years to get clean. In and out of rehab then back using again. That was my story. I never thought this painful cycle would end. I remember walking into River Source. Standing there wondering how this time would be any different? Was this all even worth it? It definitely was. They helped me dig deep into my addiction. They helped address my depression. They helped reconnect me with my family. I gained so many wonderful friendships while I was there. I’m happier today. I’m more confident in my ability to stay clean today. I have the tools to stay clean today. Thank you RiverSource for everything you’ve done for me. You have TRULY saved my life.
Client Experience: Inpatient. PHP. IOPExcellent transition from their Arizona City facility. Truly thankful for their the 30 day inpatient program and excellent PHP and IOP continuation. Fantastic curriculum with genuine, caring staff. Really happy the whole process was seamless and very beneficial. I am so thankful they got me clean, and because of all the tools they gave me I am still clean today.
Client Experience: Men’s Inpatient TreatmentMy experience was amazing here at The River Source in Arizona City. When I first got here in the middle of nowhere I thought what am I getting myself into? And I didn’t know if I would be up for the challenge, but right away I was welcomed with open arms with no judgment at all and all the rest of my peers in the program were very supportive of my situations and when I needed to talk to someone I always had someone to go to. The program was very smooth and there wasn’t one day that I didn’t learn something about myself and my disease. The staff here are great and really care about our recovery and that makes all the difference in the world. I recommend this place very strongly to anybody who is seeking to find recovery!
Client Experience: Men’s Inpatient TreatmentThe program and staff are spot on and really teach the tools and knowledge needed for recovery. Structure and discipline are key tools for sobriety which The River Source teaches daily. The fellowship of men at the inpatient facility is unlike any I’ve seen or heard of before. I’ve made many sober friends and had more fun then I ever thought I would. I would recommend this facility to anyone who really wants to get and stay sober. I plan on coming back for meetings in the future to show that this program really works.
Client Experience: Women’s Inpatient TreatmentI would definitely recommend The River Source for an inpatient program. The staff was fantastic and really took the time to listen to you and help you through problems. The yoga and meditation session were helpful, as well as the acupuncture and IV therapy. The time I had with the counselor was well used and they provided me with useful ways of dealing with my stress and trauma surrounding my addiction.
Client Experience: Women’s Inpatient TreatmentAfter a long battle with addiction, I checked into the river source for a 30 day stay. I’m so glad that I did!! The facility is really great and the main house has such a home-y feeling to it, it made the stay a little more comfortable. The staff at river source is top notch, from admin to BHTs and even the cooks are great. I really felt like this place became my home. I’m so glad that I found the River source and decided to begin my journey in recovery there.
Client Experience: Women’s Inpatient Pregnancy TrackHands down, the best recovery experience I could have asked for. The River Source is quality treatment. This place saved my life – every employee here helped in some way(s) to get me back to health and in good spirits. I spent over 60 days here, came in pregnant, “irritable, restless and discontented,” to put nicely. I never thought I’d be where I am today. Just about a week ago, I gave birth to my son whom I named River 🙂 Niles and Sgt. I owe you a lifetime of thanks – everyone there actually. Thank you for going WAY over and beyond what any treatment facility could ever have been expected to provide. This program works. If you’re shopping around, stop – if this place is out of network- go anyway. I wish I could have come here from the get go. I would have saved… well that’s another story. Money for sure though.
Client Experience: Intensive Outpatient (IOP) TreatmentThe River Source’s day treatment and IOP step down programs from residential treatment have been very helpful and beneficial in my recovery. Instead of going straight home and going to just meetings alone, I completed day treatment and IOP. It has helped with the transition of being in a residential setting. What has helped me the most being in IOP was the accountability with being drug tested twice a week as well as the emphasis and encouragement of taking action by working the 12 step program. The education and understanding of the disease of addiction shed some light on my past experiences in active addiction.
Through completing the program, I have reconnected on a spiritual level with my Higher Power, whom I choose to call God and have created a sober network of friends. I feel like I have another family here at The River Source and will always consider this place home. I would highly recommend this place to those seeking treatment for their addiction. I have been to 5 other treatment IOP programs, but The River Source has been one of the best programs. The structure, accountability, and emphasis on the 12 step program is what helped the most. Staff and therapists are very helpful. Their experience with their own disease and them being in recovery also gave me hope and made me feel comfortable that I was able to relate therapeutically in groups with someone who has been through what I’ve been through!
Client Experience: Telehealth IOPAs someone who thought their time in treatment was going to come to an abrupt halt due to the breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic, I can’t say enough about how grateful I am for The River Source and how they responded (and responded quickly) to provide myself and others who were in treatment an opportunity to continue their IOP program from home. I would say the “virtual” experience was definitely unique doing therapy, groups, and 12 step work online, but after getting acclimated to the new set-up, I feel like we never skipped a beat. It gave me exactly what I needed coming out of a 30-day stint in their residential program. Thank you River Source for finding a way to continue providing me with the support and guidance I needed to stay sober. You all have changed my life in ways I never thought were possible!
“There is a Feeling of Belonging and Brotherhood”When I showed up at The River Source I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had done no research. When I walked through the door the first thing I took note of is how clean the facility is. The staff treated me very nicely throughout the whole stay. It means a lot to have a staff of understanding people who have been through recovery and can relate. They are all very patient and caring. The most important part of my stay was the ideal environment that they create for the patients. There is a feeling of belonging and brotherhood from the minute you walk in the door. I have never had a similar experience anywhere in the world. People I did not know immediately came up and let me know who they were and if I needed anything to just ask anyone. From cigarettes, to someone to talk to, to someone to pray and cry with, there was no end to kindness we all shared. I am thankful for being guided here and I would recommend The River Source to anyone serious about their recovery.
“The Staff is What Makes This Place Special”The staff here is really what makes this place so special. They are all very passionate about what they do and the love they show us as fellow travelers in recovery is something I felt, in my heart, every single day.
The intensity of the program is another very important aspect I came to love. My original thought was that it would be an “easy” route to recovery and I found it was not easy – but very much worthwhile. I would highly recommend this as a place to start your recovery journey. I am thankful I found this place and that I entered treatment here.
“Well-Managed. Clean. and Comfortable”My experience here at The River Source Treatment Facility was very good. All staff members are here to help with my sobriety and my well-being. The facility is well managed, always kept clean, and is an easy program to follow. The rooms are nice, the food is good, I was very comfortable with my stay and highly recommend to anyone who needs help with addiction.
“They Will Amaze You Daily”Throughout this entire growth process, I have met a lot of different people. They will amaze you daily, and treat you so special and individual, day in and day out, to ensure you grow. Each and every member of their staff are outstanding and seem really happy at River Source. I truly appreciate the fond memories and experiences they built for me and I often recall them for my continued success. My best take-away was them helping me learn to enjoy every moment and just focus on keeping my side of the street clean while dealing with others. This outfit will not let you down should you honestly engage them and do the work you know you need and want to do. You’ll see that you really are worth it and they will show you why and how!
“They Made Me Feel at Home”I highly recommend The River Source rehab. This was my first time in in-house treatment and the staff and clients here at River Source made me feel at home. Everyone here helped me through the program and to have a better understanding how to deal with my addiction which gave me the tools to face my addiction in the real world. Also the cafeteria staff worked really hard to prepare good and nutritious food. Thank you River Source staff for giving me a new beginning and the tools to use for the rest of my life. GOD Bless The River Source
“Love the Holistic Approach”I would recommend the River Source 100%!!!!!! The staff were very knowledgeable and my peers were amazing. I had never participated in yoga or meditation before I came in here but now I am most definitely going to find outside classes because of my awesome experience with it. Love the holistic approach and the IV therapy is awesome.
“I Needed Help to Save My Life & Learn Why I Kept Having Relapses”So, what brought me into this place was Alcoholism. I needed help to save my life and learn how to be sober, find who I am, and learn about why I kept having relapses. Nothing seemed to work no matter where I went or how I tried. Then I was ever so lucky to walk into this place. I learned that it was a 12 step AA facility and that was truly a god send. This place has helped me more than I thought coming in. I would recommend this to anyone and all. Even just to try, you’ll come for detox and end up changing your mind for longer. This place saved my life.
“I’ve Never Felt This Great EmotionallyMy personal experience through The River source never being in treatment prior to this, it has been more than I thought it would be. Everyone, Staff and Patients were so welcoming and spoke with me right away and did everything they could to make me feel comfortable in an awkward situation for myself. The Holistic and Spiritual side of treatment here was a large part of coming here and so grateful that I did. I’ve never felt this great inside and outside of my body, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I would definitely recommend this treatment facility to anyone who is seeking help in their recovery.
Client: “It Really Brings Families Back Together”My experience here at The River Source is really amazing. It’s so different to experience a new way of life and how to handle it and realize that you can come close to yourself and recovery. The River Source helped me become who I am today and how to be myself and not worry about anyone else and how to deal with my problems in many situations and how to express my emotions. My life now is so amazing and I feel free to be myself and not care what people think about me and the way to handle myself and I can actually smile and be happy for once. I have never been this happy in a long time. It’s good to know that my family gets me back and realize that I’m not a bad person getting better, I’m a sick person getting well. I would very much so recommend The River Source because it’s an amazing place here and it really brings families back together. For anyone who comes in, it’s a miracle to have this place.
Client: A Wife & Mother’s PerspectiveI came to The River Source because I was addicted to crystal meth. My family life had crumbled around me. My husband confronted me the night before I came into treatment. I felt no other option for myself than to admit defeat and ask for help. I came to The River Source because my husband and I both realized I needed an inpatient treatment center to start recovery. While at The River Source I learned how to live life on life’s terms. I realized the importance of being honest with others and most importantly myself. While being here I developed the willingness to change. I learned the coping skills I needed to never have to use drugs again. I am now able to utilize the help I received here at The River Source into my life, as a wife and mother. I highly recommend The River Source Treatment Center to anyone suffering from drug and alcohol addiction.
Client: A Father & Husband’s PerspectiveFrom my experience, when you’re living in the height of your addiction it becomes really normal (almost like a routine) to sweep all your stress under the rug with alcohol. And it took me quite some time to realize that my drinking was not only a big part of the reason for a lot of this stress, it was also causing a ripple effect of other problems that made my life unmanageable. This was the recurring cycle I lived in for so many years. Today my life is different. I’ve learned how to manage stress in ways that don’t result in me picking up a drink. I’ve learned how to be more open and honest with my family. I’ve learned how to be happy with myself so I can make those around me happy.
I know the jury is still out and there’s still a lot of work to do, but I’m just happy and grateful that I have almost 6 months of sobriety today. My life is better than it’s been a very long time and the truth is that none of this would be possible without The River Source and all of the staff there who supported me throughout this process. You all have helped me build a strong foundation where I can continue focusing on my sobriety while working on being a better husband to my wife and a better father to my 3 beautiful girls, and that means everything to me. I am truly grateful. Thank you River Source!
Family: My Wife’s Experience at The River SourceMy wife went to River Source residential and is currently completing their PHP program and will continue with the IOP program as well. Her experience at residential was a life changing and saving experience. This is not only a 12 step program however a spiritual awakening and a program that educates on how to rewire the addict brain. It was a time for my wife to focus on herself and she did just that. I would recommend anyone whom is willing to be open and honest with themselves to give River Source a shot! Thank you to all the staff whom made her stay there comfortable and positive.
Family: My Husband’s Experience at The River SourcePrior to my husband entering rehab, our marriage was crumbling, our two kids were suffering, and I resented him for choosing alcohol over us. Nearly 4 months later, I look back now and realize how uninformed I really was about this disease. The River Source has gone above and beyond for my family and I personally wanted to say thank you. Thank you for bringing back the man that I’ve loved for 18 years. Thank you for making us whole again.
Family: My Son’s Experience at The River SourceLast November I checked my son into the 30 day program. The staff made me feel at ease leaving him there. They called me daily with updates & left me a number to call if I had questions. Great meetings for family members to attend to help understand addiction. When he came home 30 days later I was amazed at the man he truly is! He has been sober just shy of 8 months & is still attending meetings several times a week. He also has gone back to The River Source to visit & offer encouragement. Truly amazing place! Thank you River Source for helping Chuck!
Family: My Son’s Experience at The River SourceMy son attended The River Source for 45 days for heroin addiction. We were very pleased with his treatment there from beginning to end. The admission people were very helpful and answered all our insurance information and other questions in a timely manner. Our son said the staff really cared about his recovery and did not treat this as just a job. The holistic treatment was amazing, he not only gained back the weight he lost because of his addiction but he looked healthier than he had in years; he also said the supplements really helped him with the withdrawals. We enjoyed the family barbeque and also learned a lot about ourselves and our son’s addiction with the seminars that was provided. We received weekly calls from his counselor and life coach to inform us of his progress and a well thought out aftercare plan was made up for him before his departure. All of these things made it much easier to “let go” and let his recovery take place. I am happy to report that our son is doing well living in a sober living environment and is going on 70 day’s clean and sober. The River Source was an answered prayer for our family, we would highly recommend it.
Family: My Daughter’s Experience at The River SourceAfter 30 days of treatment at The River Source, we are excited to have our daughter back home and healthy. This being our first experience, my husband and I tried to do as much research as we could, we called about 8 different places and it just so happens that we went with the first place we reached out to. We really appreciated how the staff really took their time explaining things to us and educating us. They never came off pushy and even encouraged us to do our due diligence and call some other treatment centers. We ultimately felt most comfortable with The River Source and I am so glad that we made the right decision. We were always kept in the loop with how she was doing and they were always willing to give us updates when we reached out. I was also very pleased with the plan that her counselor created to help make sure she stays on the right track after treatment. I feel confident that my daughter can stay clean and refocus her life on the positive things that she’s so passionate about. We are so thankful for The River Source and everything they’ve done for our family. Such a wonderful place ran by wonderful people!
