I contacted The River Source around 2:30 am on a Saturday night because I couldn’t stop using pain medication and I was suicidal. Immediately the staff responded. They swiftly assisted me with my insurance to admit me into the facility. During my stay, every staff member from the housekeeper to the program director were a supportive part of my recovery. The no nonsense 12 step based program gave me the tools I needed to transition into a healthy, sober existence. The medical staff addressed my anxiety disorder in order to cope with overwhelming anxiety. Evan, my counselor showed me ways to deal with stress in recovery. The women staying at the facility showered me with love and support. I made amazing friends, and got to see and experience miracles every day.
