Set in the countryside, surrounded by nature, and close to the James River in Alberta, our Riverside Recovery Centre provides the perfect privacy, peace and security our clients need to focus fully on their recovery journey.

We understand that each client’s needs are unique and require a personalized approach to treatment. With 24/7 support from our professional, dedicated and experienced medical and therapeutic teams, each client can work through their individual, tailored plan – to develop life skills, learn healthy routines, and build a new daily structure for lasting recovery.

Using a combination of evidence-based therapies and holistic treatments, our programs are designed to provide the highest quality of care, and we are committed to making sure every client receives the help and support they need as they learn to live life in recovery.

Each personalized treatment plan requires a minimum 30-day admission. We also offer 45-, 60-, and 90-day stays if extended residential care is necessary.

Treatments at Riverside Recovery

Personalized Treatment Plans

Every person who arrives at our Riverside Recovery centre, comes with their own set of specific challenges. Everyone’s story is unique and everyone’s needs are different. This is why we tailor our treatment plans to meet each client’s individual needs.

At Riverside, our personalized treatment plans include a combination of evidence-based therapies and holistic practices – all with 24/7 guidance and support from our dedicated and experienced medical and therapeutic teams – to guarantee a successful and lasting recovery. 

The programs typically include a structured schedule for six days a week – combining psychoeducational and process group therapy, one-on-one counselling sessions, small group therapy, family therapy, and mindfulness.

Aftercare and Support

At Riverside, we know that good aftercare and support play a significant role in long-term recovery success. We provide 12 months of aftercare services with all our treatment plans, based on each client’s specific needs and challenges.

We understand that completing residential addiction treatment is just the start of each client’s recovery journey. Staying sober during the first 6–12 months after this treatment can be difficult and we are here to support you every step of the way. 

Our expert team will guide, motivate and support you as you transition back to daily life, making sure you have all the tools you need to sustain your recovery. Your personalized aftercare plan will help you stay on track with your long-term recovery and include additional, follow-up treatments as needed.

We also provide a referral service for a range of services and professionals in your area to ensure you have the highest level of support for the full duration of your recovery journey.

Facilities

Riverside Recovery Centre is a residential detox and rehab facility set in 27 acres of beautiful countryside, offering a private, secure and serene location in which our clients can focus fully on their recovery journey.

The facility provides the highest quality of care in a safe, nurturing environment where you can follow your personalized treatment plan, with 24/7 support from our experienced and compassionate team.

In addition to the spectacular views, walking trails, river, and wooded areas, guests at Riverside can enjoy the use of a baseball diamond, soccer field, volleyball court, mini golf course, auditorium, campground, tuck shop, heated shower house and auditorium.

On the eastern corner there is a small riding arena with barn and box stalls for horses, while on the west side there is a pond with a boathouse containing 18 canoes and paddleboats for recreational use.

The main building has numerous meeting rooms, a large dining area and a gathering place, as well as two levels of dorm-type rooms with three bunk beds per room. There are also numerous shared bathrooms on each floor. Within the grounds of the property, there are also individual cabins, some old and rustic, others more modern.

As long-term health and healing must include good nutrition – and education about healthy eating – we also have local chefs and nutritionists to prepare special meal plans designed to work in unison with the recovery needs of each of our clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Riverside Recovery is a residential facility, offering inpatient rehab and primary care, with 24-hour medical and therapeutic supervision and support.

Our carefully scheduled, personalized programs enable you to completely focus on getting sober and well without the usual everyday distractions. They offer a perfect balance of therapeutic techniques and treatment approaches to ensure deep transformational healing and successful long-term recovery – and require a minimum 30-day stay.

The main benefit of choosing a residential treatment program is the level of care and supervision you receive. Medical and therapeutic supervision and support is available 24/7, creating a safe environment for you to step away from the distractions of everyday life and focus fully on your recovery.

The structured schedule and intensive therapy significantly reduce the risk of relapse or swapping one addiction for another.

In addition, benefits include a supportive group environment with those facing similar challenges, a chance to hit the reset button on life and relearn and reform old patterns of thought and behaviour, and the opportunity to work through complex issues and try new things in a safe, nurturing environment.

Each personalized treatment plan at Riverside Recovery requires a minimum 30-day admission.

We also offer 45-, 60-, and 90-day stays if extended residential care is necessary.

We have the capacity for just 16 clients at a time.

This exclusive approach means we are able to offer additional benefits to those in need, including a higher level of personal, individualized care and 24/7 professional supervision and support.

At Riverside Recovery we evaluate, diagnose and treat addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders

We know that co-occurring mental health issues must be simultaneously addressed while addiction is being treated, to guarantee long-lasting recovery and decrease the risk of relapse.

Our cutting-edge, tailored treatments offer one of the only non-12-step approaches to recovery and include a combination of evidence-based therapies and holistic practices.

Therapies include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Family Therapy, Group Therapy, Yoga and Meditation.

Medical detox – under medical supervision and guidance – is often the first step in any addiction treatment program.

Each person experiences drug and alcohol withdrawal differently, and the symptoms and side effects of withdrawal can vary from mild to severe.

Typically, the entire detox process will take 3, 5, or 7 days depending on a number of factors, including the individual, the substances that were used, and the presence of any underlying co-occurring mental health conditions.

Detoxing and going ‘cold turkey’ without supervision under professional guidance is not recommended. It can be dangerous and even life threatening and can cause severe mental and physical symptoms and side effects.

At Riverside Recovery, we understand that when addiction treatment is completed with us, this is just the beginning of the recovery journey. Staying sober during the first 6–12 months after residential treatment can be challenging and we are here to support our clients every step of the way. 

Our expert team will guide, motivate and support you as you transition back to everyday life, and ensure you have all the tools necessary to sustain your recovery.

Your personalized aftercare plan will help you stay on track with your recovery and include follow-up therapy sessions as needed.
