About The River Source

Philisophy

Our philosophy is one of holistic healing. Our addiction treatment center focuses on strengthening the mind, body, spirit and the emotional well being of an individual. We believe the disease of chemical dependency centers in the mind, therefore “our thinking” must be changed for successful recovery to take place. Although the body may be damaged by substance abuse, we know it can be healed through a combination of medical & naturopathic detox, nutritional therapy and an individualized exercise program. Meditation and yoga help reconnect the mind and body, as well as increase the feeling of emotional wellness. Working a 12-step program leads to a spiritual awakening that delivers fellowship. Through our holistic drug and alcohol dependency program, our clients gain physical, mental, and emotional tools to live a purposeful and fulfilling life in recovery. We at The River Source provide our patients with a world-renowned holistic approach to mind, body, and spirit wellness. We know that getting help for yourself or a loved one can be costly, and that is why our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment, along with a quality program, which addresses the needs of the whole person at an affordable cost.

Specialization

Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Detox

Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

ABOUT THE RIVER SOURCE - ARIZONA CITY

Located 30 minutes outside Arizona City, Ariz., The River Source is one of the 78 (22.9 percent) of Arizona treatment facilities that provide residential treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse. The center is also one of the 201 (58.9 percent) Arizona treatment facilities offering treatment for individuals with co-occurring mental health disorders.

The program specializes in naturopathic and medical care, beginning with detoxification services. There is also a strong emphasis on 12-step processes. A specialized women's track and a Christian-based track are both available. Intensive outpatient programming is offered at the River Source's facility in Mesa.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to The River Source's website, residential treatment plans at The River Source in Arizona City vary in length from 30 to 90 days. Admission begins with a pre-assessment by phone, and clients can be accepted and transported to the facility within 24 hours. Upon arrival, residents undergo a one-hour intake process before beginning a five-to-ten-day detox program.

Detox services focus on physical comfort during withdrawal from drugs or alcohol. Medication-assisted therapy, such as Suboxone, is available for individuals addicted to opiates. Most residents in detox also receive acupuncture, dry sauna treatment, and nutritional IV infusions, along with individual and group counseling.

Holistic healing is a key aspect of all stages of treatment at the River Source. Yoga, massage therapy, acupuncture, sauna, vitamin shots, and nutritional IVs continue beyond the detox period.

Clients who have received a dual diagnosis of addiction and a mood, anxiety, or personality disorder receive integrated therapy. All clients are expected to participate in a 12-step process, with an emphasis on the first three steps. Family counseling can also be arranged, either on-site or by phone. Counseling sessions typically involve cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Following residential treatment, clients can continue to receive care by transitioning to the intensive outpatient or day program in Mesa. There, they will have ongoing access to naturopathic treatment and process groups. Aftercare provisions include online therapy sessions, employment support services, alumni connections, and sobriety screenings.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The River Source’s staff is comprised of naturopathic medical doctors and registered nurses, as well as master's-level therapists, licensed substance abuse counselors, and life coaches. The center is also one of the 73 (21.4 percent) of Arizona facilities accredited by The Joint Commission.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

Men and women reside in separate living quarters in one main building at the Arizona City facility. Bedrooms are semi-private, and there are communal dining halls, spacious lounges, indoor and outdoor yoga areas, and exercise equipment on facility grounds. The facility's website describes the setting as home-like. Cell phones, laptops, and smoking are permitted, although restrictions apply, and visitation is welcome on weekends after the first week in residence.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

The more than 225 alumni polled by Rehabs.com to date gave mostly positive feedback, and most indicated they would recommend The River Source. Over 90 percent awarded four or five out of five stars for the effectiveness of treatment, or provided solidly favorable comments without numerical ratings. A vast majority complimented the staff, most frequently for their empathetic, supportive approach. Several noted the value of staff members being in recovery themselves.

Written comments also frequently reflected the facility's emphasis on 12-step practices. Multiple alumni did note a need for more variety in treatment modalities. Suggestions offered included more group counseling and more physical activity besides yoga.

The rehab center's holistic nature received explicit and favorable comments from about 10 percent of alumni reviewers, who referenced yoga and connection with God in particular. Even more reviewers cited their experience of fellowship and connections with peers as a highlight. Opinions of The River Source aftercare services were split, however. Of those that referenced aftercare, about one in four were critical. Other complaints, from fewer than five percent of alumni, centered on too many clients in the program and unhelpful treatment.

To date, the 128 individuals who left Google reviews also gave positive feedback, offering an average of 4.7 out of five stars. "They also praised the staff, and some described the treatment as life saving. "Definitely helped save my life. So grateful for this treatment center and the people who worked there when I was there," one alum wrote in a representative review. [1]

    I attended 30 day residential program. Traveled out of state and did extensive research on this facility. I was very disappointed in the staff and care i received. For the money spent and the picture painted on the website I went in with high expectations and feeling comfortable with the choice but by the end of my stay I can say expectations were set too high and I was sadly very disappointed. I do not recommend this place. The amenities were at par but that is not what i was truly looking for in this recovery process. They are lacking in multiple areas and very disorganized. It was truly hard focusing on healing when the distractions at the facility were constantly the issue. Needless to say....i felt let down and disappointed. The website is extremely misleading as well.

I thank the staff entirely along with all of my piers who have helped me thru all of these days of getting treatment, and suggest anyone who needs help with a drug problem is referred here to River source. I thank everybody so much for all of the help that I have gotten from all of you.

    I highly recommend the 30 to 90 day stay at the River Source. It has been a life changing experience for me. I did a detox at the River Source a year ago and stayed in my room and isolated. I thought I just needed my health and I could get back to normal. Ignoring medical advice to stay longer. Boy was I wrong. A year later I was back and worse. The difference this time is I stopped doing what I wanted and listened and was willing to do anything to save my life. And that's what River Source did for me.

    I am forever grateful for the River Source and their program. I was completely against the idea of the 12 steps before attending their in patient program. In hindsight I am so glad that they pushed me to get steps 1, 2 and 3 done in my stay. After finishing the required step work for the program I found that I was willing and ready to continue the steps with my sponsor. The staff is supportive and empathetic, the groups are productive and free from judgment. If you are seeking treatment for yourself or a loved one I would highly recommend this facility.

    First off I have been to several treatment centers due to my addiction and I must say that this is the best program that I have been too. When I came here I was hopeless and thought I would never regain hope again to get my addiction under control. Well that all changed as I went through my treatment. I have been given a spiritual tool kit to use in my recovery that Riversource has taught me. I also have found hope and motivation to better my life. After my 90 days here I continued on to sober living and I.O.P. I highly recommend this facility to anyone who is struggling with an addiction. I thank God everyday for the fact that he led me to Riversource to seek help for my addiction.

    This place was a god send, I know it is a hard program to get into so for in a drunk moment of desperation not only did I get in but my brother as well and the admitted us both. Soon to find out that, that doesn't always happen and we are one of the first to come through as brothers and successfully go through the program without being detrimental to others or to each other. All I know is how extremely lucky we are to have had this experience and that with the tools gained here we can push through this fatal disease together without leaning on each other as being dependent on one an other. we both took our own program were in different groups and have come out better stronger individuals. God truly is the biggest one to thank for allowing this all to happen. I would encourage anyone who is going through addiction issues to seek this place. It truly has a different feel and atmosphere then any other place, walking in the doors you can instantly feel the connection this brotherhood had to offer and how everyone is there to help you in your personal recover as well you can help others.

    My experience at River Source is definitely one for the books! The staff was knowledgeable , friendly, and a huge part in my recovery. I enjoyed the fact that 90% off the staff are recovering users themselves,the story or issues I was dealing with they were able to relate to. This is my first experience at an residential faculty, I would recommend this place to all individual that are honestly looking for help in recovery. leaving this place in about 54hrs is a healthy fear but with the tools and the support system I've built here I feel ready to keep the napping monster napping. I will miss the people that have help me grow in my recovery and the stories they have shared. I have opened up to the group of men here, I've shared personal stories that I never thought id talk about to an other person. I have found my higher power and talk with him every day and night. I will use the power of God's love and share it with others. I'm excited to start my new chapter in my life. this chapter will be a sober one with a life time of sobriety.

    I decided I needed help with my alcoholism but had absolutely no knowledge of how the twelve steps actually work. I was familiar with River Source as I did a 5 day detox in 2015 and I couldn't find a treatment center in Florida that would accept me imidiately. When I got to river source I was ready to put %100 percent of myself into the program but I didn't really know what that meant. After I completed my first step I realized so much more about myself and realized that I had a more serious problem than I had recognized. It was the most crucial point of my recovery as I found I had all these things I needed to work on. I gave myself to the program, I found and cultivated my relationship with my Higher Power, and I learned patience and knowledge with each step I completed as well as encouragement and influence to continue improving my recovery. I got through all twelve steps and I have a better understanding of myself and I will keep working the steps and become a sponsor Immediately to continue my recovery and to give back and help others who were in my shoes. I sincerely thank River Source, all the staff, and my peers for being a huge part of my recovery and I would absolutely recommend The River Source to those who are in need of recovery. Thank you River Source.

    The River Source was a great blessing and resource for my recovery. The staff is a bit overworked, yet they really care about you, your struggle, and your recovery. The food is better than most places and they try to accommodate for any/all dietary restrictions. The best part is the friendships and brotherhood that is formed between all the clients. You know you are truly accepted, loved, and cared about. I would recommend The River Source to anyone I know that is seeking help with this disease.

    The river source is a great place for people who feel that they have hit rock bottom, like myself. When I came through these door I felt like I knew it all. I was shown I didn't, but working my recovery here and putting in as much work as I was willing to do. I got so much out from here. So I highly recommend this treatment facility, not just because this is my first one I ever been too but that here I really felt like I got the help I needed to be successful in my recovery.

    The fellowship at the River Source was beneficial as it brought me out of myself. I enjoyed my individual counseling session with Jamar every week. The structure of the program helped me learn accountability and responsibility. I would recommend anyone seeking help for their addiction to give River Source a try.

    My experience at the River Source was excellent. I feel more stable and that I have learned more about myself in 30 days than other treatments in the past. they pout a strong focus on step work and 122 step meetings which is where the recovery process happens. I would high;y recommend River Source if you are looking to recover from addiction, and start a new way of living.

    I was an alcoholic for more than 2 years. I wasted my college years on the wrong side of the fence and found myself in one of the most challenging situations sometime back when I was out of money, without a college degree and had no way to pay my bills or even for my addiction! I was signed up for the River Source’s rehabilitation programme and realized where I had been going wrong. It is not the habit that is to blame, but the mindset. Thank you, River Source.
