I came to The River Source after 11 years of alcohol and drug abuse. I finally came to the point where I realized my life was going nowhere fast and I needed to go to a place where I could learn to live my life drug and alcohol free. I saw too many very close people meet their demise. The River Source was my choice because of their philosophy on how to treat drug and alcohol addiction. I had been to other places where all they do is drug me up without worrying about restoring me to better health. I was also drawn to this place by their strong reliance on the 12 steps, something I have found to be a lifelong tool for keeping me sober. Being based on naturopathic medicine was also a big draw for me. My experience here has been nothing short of fantastic. The staff here are incredible, and made me feel completely welcome, something that is difficult to do for someone that really never felt at ease anywhere, like myself. I enjoyed every aspect of the program as I learned that every part had its specific purpose. I was helped here by gaining a solid foundation to continue my sobriety when I leave and go back out into the real world. My life is now full of hope and purpose, something I have strived to get for many years, without success. I would recommend The River Source as a first choice for anyone that is struggling with chemical dependence. They offer the best programming I have seen as long as the client is willing to grasp on to it with no reserve. All I can add is that I thank The River Source and especially its staff for everything. I cannot imagine where I would be today without the help I have been given. I will be forever grateful.
