The 12 step with holistic approach is the reason my family and I choose the River Source. I enjoyed the “hands on” approach to treating the “real” cause of my substance abuse instead of just the withdrawals. My life from here is going to be an ongoing treatment of my substance abuse. The whole staff was very good about dealing with my “character defects” and not drawing the attention I wanted to myself, and even though this is a group program, it really seemed like the staff “removed” my audience to other groups to allow me to pay attention in groups. Since this is my only inpatient treatment program I only can judge by what I have heard about other programs and I would differently recommend this program to anyone who wants to get sober. I really like the “take it seriously or we will toss you.” It made me take treatment seriously.
