Rainbow’s End Recovery believes in treating clients for their addictions — not punishing them. The alcohol and drug rehab understands how hard it is to be uprooted from daily life and offers a comfortable, home-like environment for addiction treatment. The non-institutional, residential setting helps clients relax and feel at ease so they can truly participate in their recovery experience. Individualized treatment plans, holistic care and a host of experiential activities give clients personalized and effective care designed to facilitate life-long sobriety.
ABOUT RAINBOW’S END RECOVERY CENTER
Located in the mountains of central Idaho on the banks of the Salmon River, Rainbow’s End Recovery Center (RERC) offers residential treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The program includes individualized treatment that addresses the mind, body, and spirit, and draws on the 12-Steps, among other approaches to recovery. Treatment is offered in 30-, 60-, or 90-day packages.
Residents participate in bookwork and seminars as well as individual and group counseling, animal-assisted therapy, and fly fishing in the Salmon River, at least twice a week. Clients also meet with a psychiatrist weekly, or more if needed. For clients who require it, there are seminars on life skills such as budgeting, bill paying, résumé writing, and housework. Any extra medical requirements are arranged through local practitioners.
The center provides educational curriculum and counseling for families, and invites them to visit with their loved one monthly.
All clients leave with an aftercare program that might include further meetings with mental health professionals or sober support. The facility’s website also indicates that successful graduates are entitled to a three-day, two-night refresher stay at no extra cost.
RERC’s website indicates that clients have access to a psychiatrist, though it’s not clear whether this individual is employed. In addition, the facility’s website boasts “qualified therapists.” All three of the individuals polled at the time of this writing on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it a perfect five-star rating.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Up to 15 clients sleep in semi-private rooms in gender-separate residences. The décor style at Rainbow’s End is rustic and cabin-like. Meals devised by a dietitian are served using local, organic produce.
Rainbow’s End is proud of its outdoor pursuits, particularly fly fishing, as mentioned above, but also hiking in the nearby mountain range, rafting, picnicking, and gardening. There’s also exercise equipment on-site, and residents have access to yoga and Pilates classes. For an extra fee, clients can receive massage or hot rock therapy.
The four individuals polled on the facility’s accommodations all gave five out of five stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
All four of the alumni reviews received to date were positive, with the three alumni polled on RERC’s performance giving it five-star ratings for the overall quality of its individual and group counseling as well as its holistic and leisure offerings.
Recurring praise was awarded to the peaceful setting and the staff. “The location is amazing, the food is five star quality, the rooms are wonderful,” Shannon wrote. “Very peaceful and the staff is like family,” Terresa wrote. “Constant support and true love and care are what make this place above the rest,” Sarah wrote, adding, “My experience was amazing and the one on one tailoring to my individual needs was phenomenal.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Of the two reviews received to date, one was positive and one was negative. A.E.M. gave four and five stars for staff support and family involvement, respectively. “Helped my family member out,” A.E.M. wrote, but K.J. told Best-rehabs.com: “I rate this recovery center a negative 100. As my family member came home $31,000 later, and had only traded one addiction for another.”
WHAT STAFF SAY
Both staff members polled by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing noted that they would recommend RERC to their family and friends. But while reviewer C.M. gave the facility four stars in most evaluated treatment metrics, including the honesty of its marketing/PR, its willingness to put clients’ interests first, and its staff’s experience and treatment credentials, the other reviewer gave it one, two, and two stars respectively in these categories. C.M. described the facility as a “good place to recover,” but did not give further details.
The facility’s website indicates that insurance is accepted, and some financial assistance is available. All three reviewers asked whether they felt treatment was worth the cost replied positively.
