Residential Treatment

Riverside Recovery’s residential program is located at our campus in Tampa overlooking the beautiful Hillsborough River. This setting is the ideal location for our clients to focus on their healing process and begin their personal journey to long term recovery. Every aspect of our facility was thoughtful, intentional and designed to create an atmosphere that promotes peace and well being.

Our residential program provides an intense, highly structured and therapeutically supportive experience designed to educate each client on their addiction and treat the underlying factors that exacerbate their disease. Riverside Recovery utilizes the most effective, evidenced based modalities combined with experiential therapies to create a rich program designed to help each patient gain insight into their addiction and begin learning the tools needed to create real change in their lives. Our multidisciplinary approach addresses the needs of the whole person—mind, body and spirit, and provides strong resources to address addiction and co-occurring disorders.

Specialty Programs

We know that every story is different and every client will have unique needs. As such, each treatment plan will vary and will be individually tailored to address the specific factors that contribute to our clients’ substance use and co-occurring disorders. Additionally, we also have specialty groups for patients that have come to treatment with past trauma or hold positions in sensitive career fields.

Trauma Program

Patients identified with unresolved trauma or painful past experiences will be referred to our specialized trauma program. This program will utilize EMDR, psychodrama, experiential therapies and other trauma specific interventions to address these issues so patients can begin the healing process and begin learning healthy coping skills.

Impaired Professionals Program

This program is specifically designed to treat the unique needs of professionals in the health care, legal, business, and entertainment fields. Specialized groups will address how addiction and recovery affects individuals in highly sensitive careers. Group is appropriate for healthcare professionals (dentists, doctors, nurses, mental health), lawyers, pilots, public service professionals (paramedics, firefighters, police officers), and public figures (singers, actors, senators, celebrities, etc).

Executive Program

We understand that the responsibilities of a business owner or executive can be a barrier to enter into treatment and receive the help needed to recover from drug or alcohol abuse. This specialized program can accommodate executives and will teach skills to promote healthy work life balance.

Family Program

Riverside Recovery recognizes that addiction is a family disease and the effects of substance abuse reach beyond the patient. In addition to weekly individual therapy sessions, each client will also receive a family therapy session with their loved one(s). Riverside will provide a multi-family workshop each month. This program aims to educate families of the patterns of distrust, identify broken attachments, and enhance effective communication.
