Reach New Heights In Recovery

At Swift River, long lasting recovery begins with a customized care plan, filled with a blend of effective, medically proven treatment modalities, an exceptional adventure therapy program, and a team of compassionate clinicians – all set within a 500-acre campus in the beauty of the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts.


Our integrated treatment program doesn’t just address the substance addiction; we delve into the underlying issues of the drug use, work through the toxic behaviors and thinking patterns, and treat the medical and mental health issues that factor into the addiction. Combined with a holistic approach, we tailor treatment based on the severity and extent of the substance abuse – and how the disease affects a client’s mental and physical health, along with their family and interpersonal relationships.


Clinically-Proven Care

There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to treatment for addiction. Our clients’ care starts with a comprehensive clinical assessment by our team to determine the best course of treatment. Our medical and clinical teams consist of an expert Medical Director, a team of licensed, master’s level therapists, addiction counselors and coaches, and an entire multi-disciplinary recovery care team.


Within all levels of care, we utilize proven treatment models such as individual and group counseling, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), The Four Agreements and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). We also offer unique program tracks that incorporate adventure therapy on our high-ropes course, and wilderness therapy including hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, tennis, yoga, music and art classes.


As psychosocial therapies are heavily emphasized at Swift River, we aim to alter the underlying attitudes and behaviors that fuel substance use in order to promote long-term recovery. Individual and group psychotherapies include CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI).


A Healing Environment

Nestled amongst the soaring beauty of the Berkshires in New England’s countryside, our campus is also home to a top-rated library, year-round outdoor recreational activities, a music room with various instruments, an art room, fitness center, gymnasium, conference hall and more.


Our fully-licensed high-ropes course allows clients the opportunity to go at their own pace, while building strength, vitality and self-confidence. Physical stimulation and challenges empower clients to develop a sense of purpose, fulfillment and personal satisfaction – all within a safe and supportive environment.


Our adventure therapy track encourages clients to engage in activities such as:

  • Hiking along scenic mountainside trails
  • The opportunity to encounter wildlife in its natural habitat
  • Meditation, prayer and mindfulness practices in a tranquil setting
  • Fishing in natural streams, creeks and ponds
  • Snowshoeing in the winter months


As a fully licensed and accredited facility, we understand that when it comes to recovery, your unique needs are a priority. Our treatment specialists are available for 24/7 support. Give us a call today.
