I came to River Source because I was deeply addicted to methadone, opiates, and Xanax. My sister died last year due to an opiate overdose. I choose River Source after going online to check out treatment centers. I put in “Rehab AZ” and River Source was the 1st rehab listed. I clicked on the web site, looked at the pictures, called, and spoke to Liz. I asked her if River Source did methadone detox, how much the cost was, and if there was an available spot as of June 15th-16th. I was originally only going to stay 30 days but at 2 weeks I realized that 30 days was not going to be long enough, so I extended my stay to 45 days, then after talking to Sharmyn I was honest with myself and I realized I needed 60 days. My life has improved immensely since arriving at River Source. After going through detox, I came to believe that drugs were not the problem, that I was the problem. This program has given me tools and a quality of life that I haven’t had in 17 years. I know if I continue on this path my life will continue to get better. I have seen amazing progress in myself and others in treatment. The outside meetings that River Source has us attend are extremely helpful. I would recommend River Source to anyone who wants to get clean and sober. I want to say “thank you” to all the staff here at River Source. Everyone handles themselves very professionally and calmly under happy and stressful situations. The words of encouragement are priceless.
