About us


The River is the space of an idea, the idea of Creative Recovery.

At a fundamental level it exists as a set of founding inspirations, while on a day-to-day level it lives as the commitment of the people doing the work of elevating people’s lives.

Though we aspire to be the best, we prefer to measure ourselves by the reality of what we are able to provide on any given day. Creative Recovery requires us to stand for an openness and resolute honesty, one that has us strive to embrace being human and experiencing suffering as an integral part of our lives.


In rising to this idea we value our people’s efforts first, and our ideas second. Creative Recovery is a daily reality rather than an eloquently penned idea. In the end ideas develop and truth moves on.

Truth always moves on.
