Recovery Institute of America Philosophy
Recovery Institute of America is committed to helping every person who walks through our doors find freedom from their addictions and begin the path to happiness.
Areas of Specialization
Animal therapy (also called animal-assisted therapy and pet therapy) supports recovery and emotional wellbeing by helping people develop relationships with animals. Animal therapy can be a one-time or ongoing experience.
Recovery Institute of America provides a comprehensive range of group therapy opportunities with themes including psycho-education, process groups, experiential therapy, and more. Residents learn core concepts in addiction and engage in hands-on, evidence-based interventions.
This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained drug and alcohol counselor and psychologist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family, and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
At Recovery Institute of America, health and nutrition are emphasized as cornerstones in a safe and lasting recovery. In-house nutritionists and chefs work with clients to develop healthy eating habits and learn positive ways to cope with stress.
24 Hour Clinical Care
24-hour clinical care and a safe, secure, gender-specific environment create ultimate safety. At Recovery Institute of America, we pay special attention to client’s needs and aim to make detoxification and treatment a rejuvenating experience.
The impact of addiction is felt more within the romantic relationship than perhaps any other, particularly when both members of the couple are battling drugs and alcohol. If not properly addressed and managed, addiction will quickly erode any trust and intimacy that has been built up in the union, whether it’s a married couple of 40 years or a boyfriend and girlfriend in a less matured relationship. Our expert staff provide the best couple's therapy and treatment program.
Strong After-Care Support
Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Client & Family Support Groups
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Medically Assisted Detox
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

I am so happy that I came to Recovery Institute of America. I had tried a few other treatment centers in the past for my alcohol problem, but they didn’t really work. I came to Recovery Institute of America and my whole life is turned around! I never thought I would actually be able to beat my addiction, but with Recovery Institute of America’s help, I am a completely new person! If anyone is trying to get sober or thinks they can’t beat their addiction, please contact Recovery Institute of America and they will change your life!- Ben P.
I am not the type of person to typically write a testimonial, but I had to thank Recovery Institute of America for helping me figure out who I am again. My wife and I had been struggling with a gnarly drug and alcohol addiction and could not find any treatment centers that accepted couples, until we found Recovery Institute of America. The staff was absolutely amazing and helped my wife and I work through our addiction together. We had regular therapy sessions together and were still given the one-on-one sessions that we needed. I never thought that I could get sober, let alone me and my wife, but Recovery Institute of America gave us our life and family back. There are always a lot of staff on hand, so that each client was able to get the help and attention they deserved! I loved the holistic option they had available and can’t thank Recovery Institute of America enough for what they did for my family. If you are a couple and need help with any type of addiction, I would HIGHLY recommend that you get in touch with Recovery Institute of America.- Sara J. and Jimmy G.
If you are looking for a treatment center that continues to show you amazing support once you leave, you need to check out Recovery Institute of America.

Before coming to Recovery Institute of America, I had lost everyone that was close to me. My family and friends couldn’t stand to be around me and I felt completely alone. Trying to get sober was one of the hardest things I have ever tried to do and I was at the point where I just wanted to give up. A friend recommended that I reach out to Recovery Institute of America, so I gave them a call and went to their treatment center. The staff and program at Recovery Institute of America was absolutely amazing! I was able to work through my own issues and build my relationships back together with my family and friends. Recovery Institute of America saved me and I will be letting any of my friends that have addiction problems know that they NEED to reach out to Recovery Institute of America!- Nick C.
I didn’t know what to expect coming into treatment. My life had slowly been going downhill and I thought I could never quit using drugs. I chose to go to Recovery Institute of America and it was the single best decision of my life. I went from broken and hopeless, to getting my life and family back. I can’t say enough good things about Recovery Institute of America and the program they run. I will definitely be referring anyone I know who is struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction to Recovery Institute of America!- Alex C.
I had an amazing experience with Recovery Institute of America. I was coming down real bad when I first got there, but I was so happy that they offered a medically assisted detox. It helped a ton in giving me motivation to get through the first few weeks. I also loved that Recovery Institute of America offered family support groups. When I was deep in my addiction, I had completely ruined the trust of my family. Slowly with each new family session, I was finally able to repair my relationship with family and have their support as I start my journey in sobriety. Thanks Recovery Institute of America!- Ben S.
I tried so hard to find a good drug rehab that took couples and was am so grateful I stumbled upon Recovery Institute of America. My spouse and I had tried to get sober together a bunch of times in the past, but with the help of Recovery Institute of America's program, we both are proud to say that we are clean and sober today! I wish I would have found Recovery Institute of America much sooner!- Allie M.
Great food, great program, great people, great staff! Highly recommend!- Nathan H.
I was one of those people that was content with my alcohol problems and thought that I would never be able to fully control my addiction. I was referred to Recovery Institute of America by a friend and can honestly say that going to the treatment center at Recovery Institute of America was the best decision I ever made! I was given a completely individualized recovery plan and able to meet one-on-one with both a drug and alcohol counselor, as well as a psychologist regularly. I suffer from dual diagnosis and have been to treatment centers in the past that never addressed my dual diagnosis situation. Recovery Institute of America was able to help me with my dual diagnosis, as well as give me the one-on-one attention that I needed. The variety in the different kinds of group sessions is absolutely incredible as well. If you have a drug or alcohol addiction, then Recovery Institute of America is the place you need to go to! They are by far the best treatment center I have ever been to or heard about and I can’t thank them enough for giving me a new outlook on life!- Jake S.
