The nation’s premier holistic drug and alcohol treatment center has launched a new scholarship to provide financial assistance to clients seeking Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) aftercare treatment.

The River Source, the nation’s premier holistic 12-step drug and alcohol treatment center, has launched a new scholarship program that provides financial assistance to clients seeking aftercare treatment in an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) sponsored by the organization.

All clients receiving inpatient treatment at an Arizona-based River Source drug rehab center are eligible and encouraged to apply for the IOP scholarship which covers 90 percent of their IOP program costs. Depending on the insurance status of the client, the scholarship value for the 24-session IOP program could range between approximately $3,000 and $5,000.

“The new scholarship program is a great way for us to celebrate our 10-year anniversary and also reward clients who demonstrate a commitment to their recovery,” said Liz Martin, vice president of operations at The River Source.

Founded in 2003, The River Source has established itself as a national leader in holistic 12-step drug and alcohol treatment. Thousands of clients from across North America have sought treatment at The River Source because of its positive reputation, naturopathic focus and unique approach to treating the entire person – mind, body and spirit.

“Some people in our industry use the term ‘holistic’ but they don’t really know what it means,” says Dr. David Arneson, a doctor of naturopathic medicine and one of the original co-founders of the company. “For us, ‘holistic’ starts with being focused on nutrition early on with IV therapy and amino acid therapy, coupled with good diet, exercise, counseling and a proven 12-step program. Based on our positive track record over the past decade, we’ve demonstrated that these component are essential in creating a successful holistic drug rehab program," said Arneson.

Recipients of the new scholarship award will gain access to the following services offered in the intensive outpatient program:

-Personalized Treatment Plan: A unique blend of IOP education and naturopathic methods;
-Vitamin IV Therapy: Weekly treatment with high magnesium, high B and C complex, B5, B6, B12, calcium and zinc individually made for each persons’ specific needs;
-Acupuncture and Sauna Treatments: Weekly to help release toxins from the body; and
-Urine Drug Screen and Breathalyzer Testing: Weekly

Many of The River Source staff members are in recovery and have personally completed the holistic 12-step program. “We are real people with real problems, saving real lives,” says Liz Martin. “One of the lessons we learn going through the program is that we don't get to keep what we have in recovery unless we give it away. We feel thankful that we not only get to continue with our own recovery, but we get to help others with their recovery as well.”

The River Source also covers travel costs to Arizona for clients seeking treatment from other states. For many, receiving the holistic treatment is far more important than the mileage. “The River Source helped me find sobriety, realize my defects, accept change, look for growth, and so much more," said a client from New Mexico. “My life now is on a level I never thought attainable. The River Source is my number one recommendation for treatment.”
