Our Story

Riverside Recovery of Tampa

For us, recovery is personal. 75% of our staff are in recovery and have first-hand experience going through the recovery process themselves. We understand what it feels like to have addiction define us and know what it takes to make a positive change.

The idea for Riverside Recovery was born in 2015 when our cofounders were having a conversation about what the perfect treatment center would look like. Having been to numerous treatment centers while on their own personal journey to sobriety, they knew exactly what they did and did not want in a treatment center. Their goal was to create a diverse treatment center that offered an elevated experience while treating their clients with compassion and empathy.

Riverside Recovery of Tampa offers the full continuum of care- medical detox, residential, day/night treatment, intensive outpatient, and outpatient therapy. Our facility is centrally located on the Hillsborough river (near downtown Tampa) and is easily accessible from Tampa International Airport. We utilize the most effective, evidence-based treatment combined with experiential therapies to create programs designed to help our clients gain insight into their addiction and create real change in their lives. Our aim is to provide a serene, soothing environment for our clients so that they can begin the healing process peacefully. Every aspect of the building, from the view of the river to the specific lighting to the art that hangs on the walls was carefully chosen to encourage recovery and create the best possible environment for our clients.

We recognize that every person is different so our treatment plans are based on the individuals themselves. These individualized treatment plans allow us to provide the right care for each client. We take a holistic approach combined with evidence-based therapies to address the needs of the mind, body, and. We are here to help our clients understand how their thoughts connect with their feelings, mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal relationship skills, and distress tolerance.

We know that recovery is a journey and each person’s path will be unique. Our treatment programs are rooted in the 12 step principles; however, each client will be empowered to choose a recovery program that best fits their lifestyle. At Riverside Recovery, our clients have the option to choose from AA, NA, SMART Recovery, Dharma Recovery, or Celebrate Recovery.

We know what it’s like to start your life over and we’re here to help you through each step of the way. “Your new life starts here” is not just our slogan, we live and see it every day.
