Over the years, unions and addiction recovery centers have had a problematic history. Many recovery centers promised a level of quality they did not deliver, and union members who entered treatment frequently had no choice to go elsewhere. They arrived at their organization’s partner center to find poorly maintained facilities, outdated techniques or inadequate coordination with their union. The resulting negative reputation of treatment centers spread distrust among unions and union members, and the lack of appropriate services may have stopped many union members from getting the help they needed.
Riverside Recovery is changing this landscape. We deeply value our Florida local unions, their members and their families — we know how essential the union demographic is to Tampa, to Florida and to the nation. We provide our signature top-tier, comfortable and modern addiction treatment for the men and women who the Florida community through their professions. We understand the nuances of delivering care according to every union’s requirements, and we are dedicated to partnering with each organization to meet their needs. Above all, we want to help Florida working families get the help they need to heal from addiction, restore their livelihoods and find lasting recovery.
When it comes to providing addiction treatment for union members, we are acutely aware of our role in keeping our patients’ lives on track. Union members’ careers and working families’ livelihoods depend on our ability to provide high-quality care that meets each union’s requirements for returning to work. We are highly attuned to this and ensure that the care we provide for union members is thorough, individualized and fully coordinated.
Our entire staff — from administrative leadership through our medical and clinical teams — has been trained on union procedures, best practices for providing care for union professionals and referrals from union providers. We emphasize clear communication both internally and externally, to make sure that the care we provide is optimized to get every client healthy and back to work as soon as possible.
Some of the ways in which we create a seamless, worry-free treatment experience for union members include:
Riverside Recovery provides luxury accommodations and exceptional amenities in a beautiful waterfront setting along Tampa’s Hillsborough River.

Our treatment programs encompass a range of levels of care, therapeutic modalities and other services:
From the outside looking in, treatment centers can all start to look the same — especially when you are comparing several options and hoping to find the right center for your needs. Most treatment centers promise similar things: healing, efficacy, expert providers, modern therapies, personalized care and comfort. It can feel impossible to know if any given center will actually deliver on these claims. Riverside Recovery can remove this uncertainty: we work with several of our area’s largest unions who have already vetted our services and report consistently positive results from our programs.
Riverside Recovery is proud to partner with three very large unions:
