Riverside Recovery of Tampa holds an unmatched perspective on how addiction treatment should work. We strive to destroy the traditional notion of chilling, emotionless detox centers in favor of a holistic, spa like environment. We aim to change your life for the better, all the while you feel like you are on vacation. In addition to traditional detoxification, we offer residential treatment, day treatment, and intensive outpatient services. Our staff, partially comprised of rehabilitated addicts, will work effortlessly to ensure your complete recovery. We understand the difficulty you must be experiencing and will do whatever it takes to guarantee your return to a positive lifestyle.
Last year I was in and out of detoxes, rehabs and sober livings and 6 total to be exact until i was referred to Riverside by a friend I met through the rooms. It was definitely the best decision I made and due to how well I was treated, I now have a little over a year clean. Today I bring home what I learned there. Today I can struggle and overcome it. Today I'm clean and sober because of them. The thing is, all of them for the most part is in recovery or they have someone close to them that is which connects them to their clients. I had my fair share of ups and downs while being there yet they never gave up on me. They make sure you have a full schedule with different types of classes each day which keeps your mind preoccupied yet training your mind to release the underlying issues of your addiction and how to use coping skills to battle those. They are able to tap into your spiritual, physical and emotional being and bring the best side of you out. I was fit, in connection with my spiritual side for once in my life and learned a lot about myself that i wasnt able to admit before to myself or others. The most important thing that i learned throughout my recovery is that it wont work unless you 100% want it and thats what that place strives for, is showing you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel but you have to want it. I have seen clients go mad while being there and yet the techs and staff will do everything they can to help the situation. I met some amazing people there that i will cherish throughout my life. They stick up for their team along with the clients. They are a family there and they make you feel apart of it also. You just gotta want it. xo More...
I had the opportunity to go to treatment at Riverside Recovery in Tampa, FL in 2017 & 2018. This experience has changed my life immeasurably. The staff, (nurses, technicians, etc.); including the Clinical Director and CEO, and Alumni Coordinator treated me with respect and dignity when i was at one of my lowest points. The individualized treatment and therapy helped facilitate my recovery and focus on regaining my self-worth. The exposure to different programs of recovery was eye opening and helped me realize there was another way to live, and gave me hope. The relationships I built with the staff were genuine and rewarding. This experience changed my life in ways I cannot describe and helped me forge a new sober path in life. More...
Greatest place on earth to go if you want to get sober and stay that way. Also, Alison is the best.
This place saved my life. I look forward to remaining connected to Riverside Recovery for the rest of my life.
Riverside is great the staff is very involved. I love Gene and Allison especially

I went to Riverside Recovery inpatient for 6weeks in 2018. The staff is great overall and the food is really good. The residence is very clean and the recovery program is thorough. I especially liked the exercise program, mediation beds, and 12 step recovery focus (plenty of meetings, etc). They were flexible and made improvements per request of the clients while I was there. The medical team and nurses/assistants are professional and kind. I’ve been sober and in recovery 10 months since I began treatment at Riverside. More...
I was there last year, my kids found this place, and admitted me. The staff was marvelous, the food, therapy both mental and physical was amazing. I am very happy and sober thanks to the entire staff at Riverside. Thank you for my new and wonderful life! More...
Owned and operated by men and women who have dealt with addiction themselves. Sad to see bad reviews by spiteful addicts who weren't capable of following professional advice. It seems the more they "think" they know the less likely they are to accept a new perspective. You/I cant go seek professional guidance then tell the help how to help you. Keep up the good work Riverside. Also note that these bad reviews are done by people/person who have only one review meaning "fake account" . More...
Riverside is a wonderful treatment center. It was my first and only time in a treatment center. The staff was just wonderful and supportive. The nursing staff was beyond amazing!!! I still have a text contact with most of the female clients that I spent my time there with. I also have contact on Facebook with others. More...

The staff really helped me see what recovery is all about and how happy, joyous, and free I can be if I choose. I have been Sober for over 1 yr now More...
I came to Riverside all the way from Columbus, OH..I had no idea what I was getting myself into, all I knew was I needed to get as far away from Columbus as possible to get clean and sober. I detoxed off opiates for 8 days and stayed in Residential for another 30 days. At first days dragged by but then before you knew it I was back home. I really found myself again and I'm emotionally and physically stronger than ever, a big thanks to the staff here. The staff absolutely makes this place. From the counselors, to the nurses, to Dr. Swore, to the techs, to the CEO Kirk, you guys get 5 stars in my books. You guys were amazing and really cared about everyone's well-being. If you really care about your sobriety and want to fight for this, stick it out at Riverside, you can't go wrong here. Thank you again Riverside for giving me a second chance at life! More...
I went to riverside knowing that I needed help, at first I wasn’t happy to be there and I was super angry at life, mainly angry at myself. I was mean, selfish and reckless. I spent 37 days in residential, after two weeks I felt like a completely different person, I started to take suggestions, learn how to tolerate and love other people for who they are. I learned how to be spiritually connected, and I’ve met some of the most amazing people, I with cherish the memories I have at Riverside for life, only after a short month I am smiling everyday, happy and I gained my sense of humor back!! I would highly recommend riverside to anyone seeking help. Most importantly the staff care, they fight for you when you can’t fight for yourself. Big thanks to Alison, you loved me and pushed me when I couldn’t do that for myself. Another big thanks to nurse Bryan, you gave me such strong insight and advice that I will forever hold close to my heart, you made me feel important, you helped me understand I deserve a great life!! Jackie, I’ve never had someone listen to my craziness and know my secrets & make me feel safe like you did, I love you. Also thank you to every other staff member you all change life’s of others.

Drugs have broken my family. This is such a need here in Tampa.
Great staff and facility! I'm excited to see their growth in the recovery community and help more people who suffer from substance use disorders! Great job!
From top to bottom the most amazing substance abuse treatment center! Just being associated with Riverside is a true blessing.
Teresa Castillo Regalón
I see everyday how hard you guys are working to build this place it looks very nice I live across the street from the place
I am beyond grateful, and extremely humbled, to have the opportunity to work alongside the passionate, engaged staff of Riverside Recovery. Today was a celebration of the vision and dedication of the leadership team, which allowed a dream to manifest into a reality. To be part of the launching of this inspired facility is simply fabulous... Riverside Recovery rocks! More...
I know several staff and rate this as excellent having not even visited there yet (I will definitely be doing so) based on this, because: 1.They place service to others and helping people recover from substance abuse as one of the highest priorities in their lives, and 2. Would not be putting there hearts and souls into this endeavor were it not something they believe in passionately. More...

We just wanted to thank the staff At Riverside Recovery for taking such good care of my sister while at your facility. The caring and compassion everyone showed was amazing!! Not only was my sister cared for but the staff was wonderful about communicating with our family. I would also like to give a very special shout out to Kumar, not only was he a very knowledgeable professional, he truly went above and beyond to help. THANK YOU, kind sir! Thank you to Cassandra and the rest of the staff as well, your efforts are appreciated more than you will ever know. God Bless you all!
I would highly recommend your facility for anyone suffering from this horribly disease known as addiction. More...
When I checked into Riverside my life was in a downward spiral. I knew I needed help. I was blessed to find this place. I had no idea of what to expect. Nor did I have any idea of my real underlying issues. I was hurt , most of all I was angry. As I went through the course I found that my anger was in fact why I used . At this facility I found people that truly understand me, I found acceptance,I found help AND I found peace. I found some of the best people that I've ever met and could speak openly with people that truly understood with their personal experiences different but exactly the same. From a staff of men and women that have lived it all the way to professionals that are trained to help those in need, everyone on the staff is more than willing and goes out of their way to help , it's more than a job for these people it is in fact a calling.
I simply love them .
If you are struggling with a substance abuse problem and want to know why you really abused and are really ready for the truth.
Go here, listen ,follow instructions and,,
Be prepared to be happy once again. More...

Fantastic facility. State of the art treatment facility with an amazing staff. Wonderful, caring people!
You can’t go wrong with Riverside Recovery
The property is gorgeous! The staff is great! Christine and Jared truly care about the clients well-being and transition in early sobriety.
I was in the process of selling a clients home and noticed empty vodka bottles laying around the house in different areas. I knew this client for a while and knew she drank but never knew the severity. Since she needed help organizing the move up north. We had our cleaning lady get with her and help. From there I learned about the terrible problem this woman suffered. The lady would have burn marks in her bed from cigarettes, vodka bottles under the bed and recently she began to vomit daily. She couldn't keep anything down. I began my search to find some help for her and came across this gem. They told me I was able to bring her in if she agreed. Thankfully, the client agreed to come and they had open arms. They had a nurse on staff, they have counselors, therapists, group sessions and a beautiful facility where my client can stay and get the help she needs. I know it'll be a long road ahead of her. But I'm glad this place has the options and help to get her back on her feet More...
I came to Riverside as one of their first clients and I stayed longer than anyone else so far(90 days). I can honestly say Riverside saved my life by giving me a solid foundation to recover from my alcoholism. I was a broken man, yet they treated me with nothing but respect and restored my integrity. The other clients became my peers, the technicians became my mentors, the clinical staff became my teachers and gurus, the physical therapist became my coach, the nursing staff became my health, and the admin became my support for 3 month 24/7. They took us to outside meetings which allowed me to meet my sponsor and work some of the early steps. I was hesitant to get help at all, but the moment I walked into that lobby and saw the cleanliness and modern look along with kind-hearted greeter, I was set at ease. Please do yourself or your family member a favor and give your life a future by getting help at Riverside. I hope to see you at meetings around Tampa and good luck! More...
I am not an employee and all I can say is this place is operating at a world class level. Everyone was great, from my initial contact with Dana and Michael who literally stayed on the phone with me for 3 hours while I drove in. I did not ask for him to do that, he just felt like I needed to talk and did so from his house late on a Friday night. I want to thank everyone.... truly.... I appreciate you all very much!
I apologize that I can not recall everyone’s name but you know who you are! More...
When I came into Riverside I was completely broken and had isolated myself from everyone I love including myself. Everyone there was great and really cared about my Recovery. Over the years I had build up an emotional wall that completely paralyzed me from feeling anything or relating to anyone. I was a hopeless alcoholic/addict that felt completely defeated and beat down. Some days would be challenging and sometimes I wanted to give up but the love that was shown to me kept me going. I have learned more about my faith in my higher power and myself in the 30 days there than in my 38 years of life. I can't thank them enough for the care they gave me and the life they help me get back. I will never forget everything that was given to me by everyone there. Thank you for helping me break free from me and see the light inside. More...
