The River Source

The River Source Arizona City Arizona

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.

ABOUT THE RIVER SOURCE – ARIZONA CITY

Located 30 minutes outside Arizona City, Ariz., The River Source provides residential treatment for adult men and women struggling with substance use, including those 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 faith-based track are both available. Intensive outpatient programming is offered at The River Source facility in Mesa.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

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 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.

Those 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.

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 screening.

  • 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.

  • When I first got here to River source I had no hope or faith in my recovery. I had a good attitude in getting help but didn't think I would make this far. After my first 30 days here I knew I was able and needed to stay at least another two weeks to another thirty days. 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.
