Riverside Alcohol and Drug Services
Recovery from addiction begins with abstinence from alcohol and drugs, but it doesn't stop there. Recovery includes learning new life skills, and new ways to deal with emotions. Inpatient and outpatient programming is based on the principles of trauma-informed care and the belief that our clients hold the unique ability to lead fulfilling substance-free and productive lives. We believe that addiction is a disease and utilize the 12-step program. RYC supports the individual and their family throughout each stage of the substance abuse treatment and recovery process. Since 1972, the chemical dependency programs at Riverside have helped thousands of people learn how to live more meaningful lives and remain chemical-free.
