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 They arrived at their organization’s partner center to find poorly maintained facilities, outdated techniques or inadequate coordination with their union.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.

Current Union Partners

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:

  • Teamster Center Services
  • The Allied Trade Assistance Program (ATAP)
  • The United Automobile Workers (UAW)

Between these organizations, Riverside Recovery services may be available to over a million members in the East, South and Midwest regions from Michigan to Florida and along the East Coast. Whether you are a union representative interested in talking to us about a partnership or a union member curious about our services, we encourage you to reach out to us with any questions or inquiries.
