This place is honestly a joke, I just left there. I had a family emergency while I was there and the CEO would not let me go. It took him another week for him to even give me a 3 day pass. Upon my ret...

This place is what I imagine a juvenile hall to feel like. A prison, where you are treed like you are 12 yrs old. Run, run far away! The website is full of lies, and the people that handle your intake...


Don\'t go here! They took me off my medical detox 4 days after it started... Please do research on River Oaks and send your loved one else where.


I didnt find river oaks helpful at all. The workbooks didnt come in until i was half way through my 30 days. The case loads for the therapist are way over loaded. I had to tell the nurses what pills i...

Really supportive staff and comfortable community.


Yes this facility is new. Yes they have some kinks to work out, but this is a top notch treatment center. The case managers are overloaded with clients. I know of one who works 12 to 16 hrs days 6 day...


An overall great facility


This is a new facility. They have not worked out the kinks. There is not enough staff. The addicts run the facility. The case managers are awful.

Areas of Focus
Residential Treatment

Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Family Program

Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
