Philosophy

Servicing the greater Tampa area, River Oaks fully understands that each of our patients is an individual with individual needs. This is why we offer personalized treatment programs as well as a continuum of care with several different levels of treatment including medical detox, inpatient rehab, residential treatment, and more. You can move through different levels of care as you progress in your recovery without having to leave River Oaks. We focus on offering you a customized care plan that ensures your needs are met and you have the best possible shot at long-term recovery. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, substance use disorders are primarily treated with counseling and behavioral therapies. Therapies are extremely effective for treating addiction. We understand that different people respond better to different types of therapies based on a number of variables, such as time spent in treatment, presence of co-occurring disorders, and the types of drugs abused. As such, we offer a full spectrum of therapies that allow our clients the privilege to receive the best care possible for their needs as well as the opportunity to refocus their lives in the way that is most effective for them. Our facility offers a number of features and amenities that range from massage therapy to art and music therapy—all of which have been found to be effective for individuals recovering from addiction and trauma. In addition, we offer private and semi-private rooms, full beds with pillow-top mattresses, and other perks to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We want to give you all the necessary tools to allow you to relax and focus first and foremost on your recovery. We know just how important it is to remain connected to support when you leave rehab. River Oaks will not leave you searching for support after your treatment is over. Our staff is dedicated to helping you build an appropriate aftercare program before you leave our facility and providing you with the support you will need during your next several months and years in recovery. Your aftercare planning begins the moment you enter treatment. When you leave, you’ll do so with a plan in hand.

Overall, i had a great experience here at River Oaks. The staff is great and so are the clients. We worked together during my recovery and I honestly could not have done it with the help from all the clinical professionals and the supervisors as well as my therapist. When i first got here, i swore up and down i was here for the wrong reasons and there was nothing anybody could do to help me but after staying the full amount of time recommended 30+ days, I can say, I am a totally different person and thankful for all the change within me.

My stay at River Oaks has been an incredible experience all around from the staff, therapists and other clients. The food was great and was offered a variety along with the option of purchasing extra snack items from the candy shop. I also enjoyed the extra groups and activities such as Celebrate Recovery, Church, karaoke, and AA throughout the week. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for quality care and a fresh start to recovery!

Been here twice for life circumstances and wouldn’t go anywhere else for treatment. My one-on-one therapist is the best person to ever come into my life. I would not be the person I am today without her coming to my aid. Rehabs not always fun, but this place will at least allow you to relax and get your self together. Please seek treatment here, you will not regret it, but it only works if you work it!

This was my first rehab. They treat their clients as if they are prisoners not people trying to get treatment. My therapist was excellent and so were some of the nurses and the woman who runs the gym. I stayed at the facility for 40 days and in that 40 days I saw many people relapse right at the facility and nothing was done about the situation as River Oaks was only worried about the ole mighty dollar. When you see certain female psychiatrist she sees you for less themaybe 5 minutes if that. This is something I believe the insurance companies need to to look into.when I was at the facility I was taking medications up until the day I left but when I went to do my discharge I was no longer going to be taking certain medication just cut off the same day I was leaving not slowly taken off of them because a doctor felt I didn’t need them.i would stay away from this place.

My experience at River Oaks was very positive one as I was in treatment there in 2017. The facility itself is very clean, with a full gym, and a very helpful staff. My therapist was a blessing as she was super helpful in helping me find the course of action for me to build a lasting recovery. Further the groups that a run during the week were very education and helpful that helped me to understand the disease of addiction to my core. I’d recommend this facility to anyone suffering from addiction.

This facility is overrun with repeat offenders. Most are on their 3rd-5th visit to this facility. There are groups who meet here for the summer vacations. Insurance is the means to their Florida vacation. For most in the seminars I attended, the lifestyle her is better than their lifestyle at home. There is very little accountability and it interferes terribly with those who are truly seeking treatment for their addition. I am sorely dissapointed with my care here and will not recommend this facility to anyone in need.

I am currently a patient here. I cannot get any information on my billing and my care plan. I have asked everyday for the past 5 days and have been told someone would get back with me tomorrow. I met with my therapist for 15 minutes to answer her questions and don’t have another meeting until the 16th. I am a cash paying customer so I am irrelevant. The insurance patients get all the attention. My medication has not been dispensed properly nor documented right in my charts. This is not why they promised in their ad or phone call. Find a different facility.

River Oaks changed my life, and very likely saved my life. Of course I didn’t like it at first because I was detoxing and wasn’t my true self. I didn’t like change. I had to learn to be open minded and by doing so I was able to grow so much.

This place is a JOKE. I was there 2 years ago. While I did make some lifelong friends, I didn't stay sober after being there. I ended up relapsing and going to a better rehab called Oxford Center in Etta,Mississippi (which I HIGHLY recommend) . Anyways, my experience at river oaks is not different than the people I was there with. The entire staff, are horrendously insensitive and have no real clue what living with addiction is like. How can you tell me how to stay sober if you've never experienced it either by dealing with it yourself or watching a loved one go through it. One nurse in particular I will never forget, on one occasion, the night of the NBA finals where the heat won, she gave out our meds differently than normal...she had them all lined up in cups with our names on them, which was very unusual. I'm not sure what I actually took that night but I was completely messed up, my roommate was so messed up that I literally had to carry her across the campus into our room, and she tried to give the woman across the hall, who was there for alcoholism only, medicine for a woman with the same name going through heroin withdrawals, and when the woman tried to say she was not a person who needed 3 whole suboxone strips and that the name on the cup was someone different, the nurse tried arguing with her! On a separate occasion, she was handing out meds and I had forgotten my water bottle in my room. So I went and grabbed it and as I was walking back towards the counter, thinking in was just going to have to wait for people to go in front of me, she YELLS out "HEY MOOSE, YOU COMING FOR THESE PILLS?!" Mind you, I am overweight and have dealt with bullying for all of my life, I wasnt expecting to be called out of my name while trying to receive help for a very serious issue. When I made a big deal about this situation, for fear that she might do that to someone who was more sensitive than me, the higher up person I talked to completely brushed it off like it never happened, and said that "where the nurse is from calling someone moose is like calling someone sweetheart"...like seriously man...come on. The classes they make you attend have no real impact on you. And it never seemed like anyone ever cared if I stayed sober when I left there. All they care about is getting your money. It's sad. PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONES TO THIS FACILITY!!! All you really need to do is a quick Google search and you'll find where the local news channel investigated them for over 200 911 calls in a few months and you'll see where they let someone who needed to be in the hospital run out into the middle of the road and got hit by a car and died and then another guy run away from the facility and got shot trying to break into someone's home.

My husband was targeted by a male nurse, and made his intake, and the next two following days a living Hell. This nurse, knowing my husband was going through withdrawals that are life-threatening, decided he’d use my husband as a punching bag by criticizing his addiction, and neglecting his care, which made my husband fall into a seizure, and he did nothing, but watch my husband nearly dead on the floor. There is video proof, and I am going to get it to show everyone this facility IS NOT what it says it is; professional, empathetic, honest, treat people with dignity, and respect, and most of all, sensitive to anyone’s struggles with any type of addiction. This nurse needs to be removed from his post and retrained so he can understand another person’s struggles with addiction.

I was at river oaks for 45 days and it was the most serene place. It was exactly what I needed.. the doctors were brilliant and the facilities were like a five star hotel. I was treated like a patient and a guest. The food was so healthy and the staff treated me with nothing but respect. I remember the program director helped me with some delicate family issues and I am forever grateful for him..

All you ever here is insurance controls everything... They lie to your insurance to keep you there longer..If you have bad insurance you get moved to IOP and get more privileges... This arm band thing is a joke...People get moved up to yellow band after 5 days because of bad insurance.... I had good insurance and 30 days no yellow band... Y'all promote smoking because it's the only thing you can do to stay sane... You beat on our doors at 6 to get up only to have the TV turned off at 7 and no classes till 830...WTF and you close the gym at 4 30 when lights are not turned off til 10...WTF... Smoke or sit in your room and stare at the wall... Very dissapointed in this half ass run place... I could've rehabed on my own better than this insurance fraud establishment...

This was my first rehab treatment and I would recommend River Oaks to any addict struggling with addiction and/or mental disorders. The staff are very caring and compassionate. The facility is beautiful and they do a great job of making it feel like home. The greatest strength was the psycho educational class. Treated us as equals and spoke truth, hope, and life. It's not necessarily the facility, but the initial phone call to the addiction hotline gave some misleading info, and I heard that from multiple clients.

Hello I am a former client of the river oaks facility, and a recovering addict. This facility was one of my worst experiences ever. I am a very compitant person that figured out after a few days it was all about the money. I just received my bill and realized I was right. Don’t get me wrong there are some very nice people there that really care. Most of them are just staff members or bht (behavioral health technicians). Believe me they work way harder than most of the so called professional psychiatrist, doctors, and case managers. I was given Adavan the first day and felt very funny. They said it would help me relax. I don’t take those pills cause I was prescribed them before and missed a month of my life. Thanks! When I realized the place just wasn’t the type of help I was in need of. I stayed from November 8 thru November 13 saw my case manager once, saw a doctor 3 times, and never saw a psychiatrist. 3 out of the 4 times I was asked the same pile of questions and charged over $500 for the 15 min session of how are you feeling. The schedules say you have to attend the classes that are over crowded in most class rooms, and god forbid a male walk to the horse stables cause it’s where the females stay and that really sucks when your in a strange place and that’s the only thing that feels natural to an old southern boy. To get the APPROVAL to leave to go to an out patient facility I had to sit down in front of my case manager door to wait on my psychiatrist who I had never spoken to until I was about to get in the Uber to leave to say it was a bad idea. Come on dude you didn’t even know me and was doing therapy for people who arrived after me. My case manager wouldn’t do anything but walk around where I was sitting “in the floor” until I threatened to file a complaint and even then another case worker was kind enough to actually listen to what I wanted to do about my situation and helped me get things sorted so I could leave. There are a few people at the facility that care. The 5 days of nothing cost me a little over $25,000. I would only recommend this facility to people I don’t like, but feel free to make you own choice. And yes all this is true I wrote down everything in the 200 page composition book they give you on arrival. It’s the only thing that was worth keeping so I could inform people on my experience with this experience. There are far better options than the river oaks facility in Florida!

I am a middle aged, successful business person who escaped this facility this week..August 2017. I paid in cash...$26,000...if that gives a idea of my background and of expectations my family and I expected from this facility....It over sells, manipulates, and offends it's clients/patients. If you truly want guality quality health care DO NOT go there...I have never been arrested before or been to rehab before but my experience there was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life.....please read the other negative reviews for this facility...they are completely True...I am concerned for the current clients/patients there and will remain sober with a goal and highly driven purpose to shut down and bring to justice such facilities run by American Addiction Centers....Thanks,Your friend in recovery and sobriety.

As of July 27, 2017 I have had a year of sobriety which I attribute in great part to my stay at River Oaks and my local counselors. It took me 5 days at the Oaks to get my mind around my issues. The staff and classes were excellent. It is always better to learn from someone who has been there. No problem or issue you might have is something new to the staff. I enjoyed speaking with sufferers from all walks of life and circumstance. The MD who admitted me didn't sugar coat my situation and those of the clients. No funny business from anyone. The facility was nicer then I deserved or expected and I thought the food was excellent as well as the staff that served it. Make sure you go with the right frame of mind to better yourself and when you leave take it one day at a time!!!! Thank you Oaks for my second chance!!!!

Never have I been so mislead!!! Had to leave the very next day as they told me I was covered by FLMA from work. WAS NOT! Then had to pay my flight home so I could be at work on Monday which cost me $566 to get home. Then not even being there for 24 hrs they sent me a bill of over $6000 for room, and medical care. I only got meds once!!!! Then they took my meds and destroyed them. When I said I was leaving they made me feel like I was a terrible person just trying to save my job. What a joke of a place. And they think Im going to pay them a dime!!!

Call centre told numerous lies to get me there. They will not pay for your flight. There is no swimming pool and the food is bad.. This place is major BS. People were smuggling and using street drugs daily.. would not recommend at all.

They did not have the programs promised. The full time psychiatrist was a part time nurse practitioner who spent her time managing her outside business. They would not provide medical records until threatened. When they did, psychological evaluation was blank as was the treatment program. My daughter was harmed and left after 2 weeks. Pursuing full refund and possible legal action. They are dishonest and prey on the poor and uneducated. After my daughter left, we received facebook message from patient who told us how our daughter was mistreated and she was willing to testify on her behalf. Stay away. Far away.

Thank you River Oaks. Clean, very helpful friendly staff. I thank you for giving me the tools needed for a sober life. I would highly recommend this facility. Only complaint is one of the nurses very grumpy and discharged me with incorrect and missing medication. Said she would contact Dr and call in prescription. Now a week later not a word

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin seo plugin http://www.SEORankingLinks.xyz/

Very unorganized. The first three days there I couldn\'t find out hardly any info from staff. After talking with other clients I found out this was the norm rather than the exception. The case managers seemed more worried about getting paperwork done for discharge rather than caring about what happened after discharge. The therapist were nice but didn\'t get to spend hardly any one on one time. They were dealing with mildew/mold at the time so I can\'t say many nice things about the facility other than there is an endangered hawk who may try to attack you as you walk the 12 step trail.... Overall I was very disappointed.

Therapists were caring. Most nurses were good,for the most part. The facility is too crowded for the number of staff. No outings except for one outside AA meeting a week. Recreation is much more geared to younger population. Sales people on phone totally lie. I was strip searched without even being allowed to keep underwear on. I have been to treatment before 3 times and detoxes and was never subjected to this. They don\'t kick,anyone out, even people who,have sex at the facility are not discharged. They need to stop lying to get people there. Positives,were nurses and therapists. Afternoon groups were garbage fill time. I would not recommend at this time. They need more staff for the 120 plus number of clients. I won\'t go back.

On my daughter arriving in Florida, I was NEVER given a call that she arrived safe. After calling over 7 times and finally reporting the unresponsiveness of the facility did they bother to call family to discuss treatment. They have NO REAL MEDICAL training to deal with REAL pain. Their method is to give Suboxin to detox...Period. Save yourself a trip, unless your looking for a warmer climate.

This place is a joke. I could get more alcohol or drugs on campus if I wanted it. I feel sorry for the 7 eleven down the street that I am sure is suffering from a bunch of theft. A person went ama and wasn\'t noticed missing until someone let the staff know. The employees and therapist s are awesome. The place is way understaffed. If I ever need help again. I will not consider AAC again. I have emotional scars from this place. These comments are not fraudulent because along with me multiple people witnessed this. Oh and on top of that Hippa laws are constantly broken.

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 return everyone told me they didn\'t think I was going to return. The food is terrible, some of the staff is good but some are just plain rude. My therapist that I had was very rude to me.

I WOULD FULLY RECOMMEND RIVER OAKS AS A GREAT PLACE TO START YOUR ROAD TO SOBRIETY. UPON ENTERING RIVER OAKS I WAS GREETED BY MULTIPLE EMPLOYEES AND MADE TO FEEL AT HOME . IVE BEEN SOBER NOW FOR 4 MONTHS AND HAVE R.O TO THANK FOR PREPARING ME TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL SITUATIONS ONCE GETTING BACK OUT INTO THE REAL WORLD. AS FAR AS FACILITY GOES, THE BEDS ARE SUPER COMFORTABLE, YOUR LAUNDRY GETS DONE ONCE A WEEK(BRING TWO WEEKS WORTH OF CLOTHES) ITS FLORIDA AND ITS HOT.... YOUR GIVEN 3 HOT MEALS A DAY AND A SNACK AT NIGHT TIME, ALONG WITH A THERAPIST AND A CASE MANAGER WHO HELP TAKE CARE OF YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS.

I FOUND RIVER OAKS TO BE EXTREMELY HELPFUL IN MY ROAD TO RECOVERY. AS A FIRST TIMER ENTERING INTO REHAB FOR BOTH DRUGS AND ALCOHOL I WAS TREATED WITH RESPECT UPON ENTERING AND FOR THE DURATION OF MY 31 DAY STAY. I HAVE NOW BEEN SOBER FOR ALMOST 4MONTHS AND HAVE RIVER OAKS TO THANK FOR GETTING ME PREPARED TO RE-ENTER THE REAL WORLD AND KNOW HOW TO COPE WITH MY SURROUNDINGS AND THE ANSWERS ON HOW TO STAY SOBER... ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS I LEARNED WHILE IN REHAB IS THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE THERE(OR ANY REHAB ). ONES THAT WANT TO BE THERE TO GET CLEAN ..AND OTHERS THAT DONT WANT TO BE THERE. IF YOUR ONE THAT FITS THE FIRST DESCRIPTION.. RIVER OAKS IS MORE THEN ACCOMMODATING. THE THERAPISTS AND CASE MANAGERS ARE MORE THEN WILLING TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR INDIVIDUAL ISSUES AND KEEP THEM PRIVATE. THE BEDS ARE SUPER COMFORTABLE AND MAIDS DO CLEAN ROOMS ONCE A DAY.. YOUR LAUNDRY IS DONE ONCE A WEEK SO PACK TWO WEEKS WORTH OF CLOTHES(ITS HOT IN FLORIDA SOMETIMES YOU WANT TWO OUTFITS PER DAY).. YOUR SERVED THREE MEALS A DAY AND THEY WILL ACCOMMODATE TO ALLERGIES IF YOU LET IT BE KNOWN. PHONE PRIVILEGES ARE ALLOWED AFTER 7 DAYS HOWEVER IF IMPORTANT PHONE CALLS NEED OT BE MADE AND YOUR POLITE WITH THE NURSES THEY\'LL USUALLY LET YOU MAKE THE CALL. I FULLY RECOMMENDED GOING TO RIVER OAKS AND LETTING THEM HELP YOU ON YOUR ROAD TO RECOVERY.. TWO BITS OF HELP I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER ARE .. IF YOU CHASE BEING SOBER 50% OF HOW HARD YOU CHASE THE DRUGS/ALCOHOL YOU WILL SUCCEED AND IF YOU HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS FROM HERE ON IN LIFE WILL BE BETTER EVERYDAY

I went to River Oaks from January 1 to January 30th 2016 and I am very happy I did. The facility is located in Florida so it was nice to be somewhere warm in the Winter. The staff at River Oaks was very caring and compassionate. Right from the start I was made aware of the rules I was to follow and It wasn\'t an issue for me for the entirety of my stay. The beds are extremely comfortable and the food is very good. You will often be given a choice of a main dish (Chicken,Fish,Beef,Pasta) and they always offered side salads. There are several different drinks which are healthy and they also offered Coffee. If you are a smoker they often have 10 minute breaks in between groups which are allotted for that. The days consist of a Town Hall in the morning where you are able to discuss matters effecting the group as well as ask individual questions. Typically all the staff attends so any concerns can be addressed. They offer morning Yoga and Weight Lifting/Exercise. I really utilized the exercise groups and gained a lot of muscle and endurance thanks to this. There is a personal trainer and all you have to do is ask him/her what you can do to work on any particular thing and they will help you grow in that area. I noticed some clients had injuries when they went in and were able to focus on exercise for that with the trainer. Moving on. The therapy groups are very helpful to focus on the keys to overcoming your addiction. Each day your therapist works on issues out of the curriculum and this includes group activities. Things like \"overcoming anxiety\", \"relapse prevention\", \"healthy relationships\" etc are just some of the many topics you discuss. You have individual sessions with your therapist and case manager to address personal issues you have during and post treatment (family issues, a good place to live, continued care). 12 step recovery is also incorporated into the curriculum to give you that aspect as well. I had an excellent therapist and case manager. What else.... there is a huge campus where you can walk or jog around and get exercise, there is a full length basketball court, they have tennis courts, they have a 12 step trail where you can mediate. I thought it was pretty cool that the CEO went on runs and offered it to the group to go with him. The techs and nurses were all nice and encouraging. Sometimes the lines for medicine would get long, but it all it took me was a little assertiveness and politeness and i was able to get what I needed. If you do well you get priviligages such as group outings..we went to see the Manatees in the Bay. . They have huge 65 inch TV\'s in every hallway and they would often have newer movies playing or sports. You have ample time to work on your assignments and get to know the other clients. Becoming friends with the other clients was one of my favorite parts. Many of them are still sober today. The overall atmosphere was very positive all the way through. I made friends who I care about. I liked the food and the staff. I went there to get treatment and that is exactly what I got. I\'ve been to 5 other inpatient treatment centers due to my addiction. I have been sober since I left River Oaks (9 months and counting) and this is something i\'ve only ever achieved once before in my life. As with any treatment center you may find entitled clients or clients who don\'t want to be there....for me I just tried to be encouraging to them and mostly stay away from the bad apples. I went there to save my life and reestablish my recovery not complain about everything. Some people just aren\'t there and thats ok, I found a great group of guys who were dedicated to finding answers to overcome this crappy disease. It was a great decision and I would recommend it to anyone seeking treatment. They also provide you with an Alumni Contact for after treatment that continues to make sure you are doing well and its someone you can call if you are struggling. Two Thumbs up!

A very professional place. Great food, with great activities to do. They had a very friendly staff and probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Made a lot of good friends who I am still in contact with today. This place gave me what I needed to build a solid foundation in recovery and am still sober today because of what I learned here. I am very grateful for river oaks and hopefully will get the chance to go back one day to visit as a visitor

Just left this facility today. Happiest day of my life. I was miserable the entire time. There is only one option for a meal and if you don\'t like it or are allergic, you starve or eat cereal. The BHTS are inconsiderate, rude, and understand NOTHING about addiction. If they tell you there is a pool they are lying. The only thing there is to do is smoke cigs and watch tv. Rooms smell like mold and they deny any mold being there. Website says it\'s a 5 star chef and there\'s no way. Food is good maybe 1 time a week if you\'re lucky. They claim to offer one on one therapy yet you only see your therapist 3 times while you\'re there. Unprofessional and horrible place to send someone you love. If you care about them send them FAR AWAY FROM RIVER OAKS

This was the first rehab facility I have ever been to, but would not recommend it. Definitely not enough staff, rooms were moldy(though they kept denying this-you could smell and see the mold), there never seemed to be enough nurses so many times mess were given late or we would have to be late for classes or appointments just waiting on meds. Some of the staff was very rude, however a lot of the BHTs And nurses were very helpful and kind. Very difficult to see a doctor or psychiatrist. I actually had 2 appointments where the psychiatrist didn\'t show. Case manager was not helpful and I never had much time with the therapist. Very unorganized. Most of the clients(including myself) were lied to by the representative about there being a pool and having outside trips and several other things...none of which turned out to be true. I did feel that the food was good and nutritious, however several people on the kitchen staff were rude. I would definitely recommend using the family therapist if needed-he was probably the most helpful staff there! Overall-they are just a new facility and have a lot to work on and need more staff and be much stricter on those that were breaking the rules. I would not recommend this facility at this time as well as rewarding the clients that were following the program, attending the groups, and following rules.

I was the 21st on the girls side ..it was only opened 6 weeks.. with all new facilities comes hiccups .. the BHTs needed to be trained emphasis on disease of addiction . It was a counter productive .. however in the end , if you don\'t want help than don\'t go. With anything, you get what you put into it .. life continued while I was there and it taught me to surrender to situations and people. I learned a lot about myself and others. I made lifetimes bonds like no other . Staff overall was good . therapists were good and the food was great. It\'s not a vacation it\'s a treatment center. I give it 4stars . For me it was a gift and saved my life and the tools a got from there I still have and still clean and sober ..

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 will tell you ANYTHING to get you there. There isnt any real therapy. They just force you to go to groups... every group is the exact same. Half the people sleep through them, the other half write letters home. The good is frozen food, that sometimes is literally inedible. Food and drinks are available for short periods 3x a day, if you miss a meal (or are thirsty!) You\'re SOL! ...I don\'t think they\'ll be open for long.

Intake person assured me this was a premier facility. My son has been there one week. He\'s been allowed or has without permission, been able to call family members and others daily, multiple times. Reports the BHT\'s, some are rude and unprofessional. He states nurses are great. He states case manager \"overwhelmed\". He says some of the groups are non productive and they\'re shown movies. I realize his opinion is hearsay, but, this was voluntary admission on his part, and his third rehabilitation admission and he notes a distinct difference and perceived lack of control by facility staff.

I sent my daughter to river oaks rehab, I was assured that they were dual rehab and Would handle her anxiety disorder. For the first two weeks her disorder was ignored even after I told the initial intake person and in person to the intake nurse. Many mistakes and unprofessional behavior by top staff members took place while she attended this facility. Lastly, they finally realized her disorder have weeks of misdiagnosis and her packing her bags to leave. She relapsed 3 days after she was discharged as she was unstable and ill equipped sobriety. Please do not send your loved one to this facility!!!!

I know of one who works 12 to 16 hrs days 6 days a week. The nurses are awesome and work double shifts. Now that\'s dedication to the clients. This place is saving lives. If they save just one for today, they did the job they set out to do. Thank you River Oaks for letting me live another day.
