How Do I know If I Need A Residential Treatment Program?

It is widely recognized that alcoholism or addiction to alcohol is a chronic and progressive disease that often begins with social drinking or binge drinking. 

Hallmarks of the disease include an inability to consistently abstain from drinking, impaired motor and/or behavioral control, blackouts, and the inability to maintain stable personal relationships or employment. 

Cravings for alcohol are often accompanied by a diminished recognition of the effect that your behavior has on others and recurring cycles of relapse and remission along with an inability to control the amount of alcohol consumed once you begin. To find out more please take a few minutes to do our free online assessment, or contact one of our caring professionals to review your unique situation and habits. 

Safe & Secure Medically Supervised Alcohol Detox

At The River, we employ a team of Western-trained and licensed substance counselors with decades of experience treating people who are suffering from alcoholism. Alcohol dependence has both physical and mental aspects to the disease and withdrawal from alcohol can be life threatening. Because of this, we offer medically supervised detoxification as a crucial first step in the recovery process. It is not mandatory and you will be assessed by our onsite medical team to determine if this service is required. We have a full-time staff on the premises 24 hours a day so that there is always someone available at any time of the day or night.

Our in-house alcohol detox includes the following:

You will also benefit from a personalized treatment plan that includes our signature Creative Recovery practices such as diet and nutrition, personal training, yoga, cooking classes, art and culturally rich odyssey excursions where you can do things like go, zip-lining, rock climbing, or visit the local markets.
