Our Story

Riverside Recovery of Tampa

Recovery for us is personal. Seventy-five percent of our staff has gone through the recovery process and experienced firsthand what it feels like to have your addiction define you.

The idea of Riverside Recovery started in 2015 by our two founders simply talking about what a perfect treatment center would look like. After learning about the voids in the industry, they put their plan into action in order to create a diverse rehab facility, that treated their patients with compassion and empathy.
Our facility allows us to offer the full continuum of care from medical detox, residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient. Riverside Recovery of Tampa is located on the Hillsborough river near downtown Tampa and is easily accessible from Tampa International Airport. We utilize everything from evidence based technology to mindful meditation, and aim to provide a serene, soothing environment for our clients. Every aspect of the building, from its views of the river to the specific lighting and floors, was made to encourage recovery and create the best possible environment for our clients.
We recognize that every person is different, and our treatment plans are based on the individual themselves. This enables us to provide individualized care for each of our patients. Rather than allow our clients to be pigeon-holed by one specific type of program, we address the needs of your mind, body, and spirit using many different evidence-based therapies. Our therapists utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help clients understand how thoughts connect with feelings, mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal relationship skills, and distress tolerance.
We know what it’s like to start your life over. “Your new life starts here” is not just our slogan, we live and see it every day. The best day of your life is the one in which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses, no one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. That is the day your life really begins.
