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.
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.
