I came to The River Source out of desperation. I have struggled with addiction since I was 14 years old. My illness has progressed every year and has taken a physical, mental and emotional toll on my life. It has affected my life in every way imaginable. I chose The River source because I was looking for a rehab facility that would provide 1) a quality detox, 2) holistic approach and 3) emphasis on the 12 step approach. The 12 step program is the only solution that has helped hundreds of thousands of addicts like us. I knew in my gut that The River Source was the right place for me. During my 60 day stay at The River Source I have dramatically grown physically, mentally, emotionally and most importantly spiritually. I have a relationship with God for the first time in my life. Every day it progresses. With the spiritual awakening I have experienced, I have been able to identify major character defects (selfishness, dishonesty, isolation, complacency etc.) that have led me down a road of low self-esteem. This then led to drug abuse. My life now is so much better than 60 days ago. No longer am I imprisoned by drugs and alcohol. Don’t get me wrong, not every day of sobriety is pink rainbows and unicorns. Life is life and it will always be a rollercoaster. The River Source has given me the tools to deal with the twists and turns without using. I would absolutely recommend The River Source to anyone suffering from addiction. The staff is incredible. The structure is exactly what I needed. The fellowship of like-minded addicts struggling with the hurdles of life has impacted my life beyond belief.
