Residential treatment is one of the most time-tested and reliable methods of addiction recovery treatment. The full-time care, supportive structure and safe environment provided by residential programs ensure that recovery clients get the attention they need within a distraction-free space focused entirely on their healing. Time and again, these programs change lives for the better — at Riverside Recovery, we witness first-hand the successes of our residential clients every day. We invite you to learn more about our modern approach to residential treatment, and to find out how we can give you or your loved one a chance to start fresh after struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Is Residential Treatment Right for Me?

Residential treatment is highly customizable and applicable to people at all stages of recovery. Whether you are dealing with an active addiction and currently abusing drugs or alcohol regularly, or whether you have had problems with substance abuse in the past and feel close to relapse, residential treatment can be an option. The only requirement for residential care is that you fully commit to full-time, round-the-clock recovery treatment for a certain amount of time — usually 30, 60 or 90 days, but with some flexibility or alternatives depending on the treatment center.

To find out if residential treatment is your best option, reach out to Riverside Recovery. Upon admission to our program, you will be evaluated by our staff and paired with the appropriate level of care for where you are in your recovery. We offer a range of levels of care from inpatient detox to an intensive outpatient program and will be sure to recommend the treatment that will benefit you most. 

Residential Treatment with Riverside Recovery

Riverside Recovery’s residential program is located at our campus in Tampa overlooking the beautiful Hillsborough River.

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 therapeutic modalities along with engaging experiential therapies. With these methods, we’ve created a rich program designed to help each patient gain insight into their addiction and begin discovering the tools needed to create real change in their lives.

Additionally, we have specialty groups for patients that have come to treatment with past trauma or hold positions in sensitive career fields.

VALOR Program

Trauma is a major trigger for substance abuse, as individuals who live through traumatic experiences frequently turn to drugs or alcohol as a means of dealing with their pain. One of the most common sources of trauma is war and violence, which can leave veteran soldiers dealing with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is frequently associated with substance abuse. At Riverside Recovery, we strive to provide the kind of support that veterans need to heal from both PTSD and addiction. Our VALOR program focuses on this sector of our clientele and is uniquely suited to the needs of military service men and women. We offer treatment for co-occurring PTSD and addiction with experienced professionals, including a veteran clinician.

Impaired Professionals Program

Certain career paths come with unique stressors or high-powered lifestyles that frequently lead to drug and alcohol abuse. Our impaired professionals 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 affect 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.). 

Family Program

Riverside Recovery recognizes that addiction is a family disease and the effects of substance abuse reach beyond the patient. Research has also shown that engaging family members in the recovery process improves client outcomes through more targeted support and greater understanding. For these reasons, in addition to regular individualized care, each client is also eligible to participate in our Family Program at any level of care. This program consists of two weekly sessions that include family counseling and group meetings, as well as monthly multi-family workshops. Family sessions take place on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings to account for loved ones’ daily schedules. This program aims to educate families about the patterns of distrust, identify broken attachments and enhance effective communication.
