River Shore Comprehensive Treatment is a leading provider of medication assisted treatment, offers care for men and women (ages 18 and up) who are struggling with an opioid addiction. River Shore Comprehensive Treatment supplies an overall approach to treatment by incorporating safe medications and therapeutic interventions.

River Shore Comprehensive Treatment Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Rehab Services:

Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT)

Methadone is a synthetic medication that curbs drug cravings and decreases the intensity of withdrawal symptoms, but does not cause the same high that other opioids like heroin or morphine do. Because of this, methadone is classified as an opioid agonist and is effective in treating opioid addictions.

Opioid Dependence Treatment

Opioids are any drugs based on the chemical composition of opium. An opiate is a synthetic (man-made) version of an opioid, also known as a narcotic. Opiate pain medications include prescription painkillers, like Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet. Other opioids include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone, and heroin. Dependence or addiction to opioids is treated in a similar fashion to other drug and alcohol addictions, with an eye towards helping the body detox safely before other treatment commences.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

Similar to methadone, buprenorphine is a drug meant to help with long-term treatment for opioid addiction. Those recovering from heroin addiction or other opiate addiction may be prescribed buprenorphine (Suboxone and Subutex) to help wean the body off of opioids safely, over time. Buprenorphine helps lessen the discomfort and danger of detox and withdrawal. Like Subutex, Suboxone contains buprenorphine, however, it also contains naloxone. Both substances work together to allow Suboxone to be effective in ceasing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. However, if an individual uses other opioids while taking Suboxone, he or she will experience withdrawal symptoms.

What does River Shore Comprehensive Treatment offer?

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Intensive Outpatient programs are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.

Outpatient (OP)

Outpatient programs are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

When a man or woman chooses to embark on the road to recovery at a River Shore Comprehensive Treatment Center, he or she will be part of a truly personalized treatment experience. Based on the individual needs of the patient, the specific medication used and the therapeutic interventions included within the patient’s treatment plan will be tailored to what the patient needs to have the most successful treatment outcome. Because of the manner in which they cater treatment to the individuals entrusted into their care, those who choose to heal with them are able to achieve long-standing recovery.

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a method of care that includes working with a counselor in a one-on-one setting. This type of therapy helps patients begin recovering from an addiction to opioids like heroin, prescription pain pills, or morphine. Some of the benefits of individual therapy can include developing new perspectives regarding the potential underlying causes of addiction, addressing past issues (such as trauma) that have added to an opioid addiction and creating healthy coping skills, among others.

Group Therapy

The experience of group therapy includes the participation of numerous patients. In most cases, group therapy sessions will be led by one counselor, however, in the event that there is a larger group of individuals participating, more counselors might be involved. Like individual therapy, group therapy works to help individuals acknowledge and process the behavioral and emotional effects that have added to their opioid addiction. It is highly uncommon for an addiction to develop for no reason, as issues like stress, societal pressure, history of trauma, mood disorders, low self-esteem, etc. often serve as underlying causes of addiction. Group therapy offers up an environment where individuals can feel comfortable discussing issues such as these, as well as other topics related to recovery. Group therapy is often effective because of the talent of the therapist, as well as the participation of the individuals.
