Mind

Body

Spirit

There is a natural connection between the mental, physical, and spiritual parts of every human being. Riverplace is focused on supporting the individuals we serve in all areas, from nutrition and fitness, to mental and physical health, to spiritual (12 Step) foundations. We know that when all of these areas get stronger, individuals can live the full lives they deserve, and we’re committed to making that a reality.

Person-Centered

At Riverplace, you matter. You’re never just a number – you’re an individual with your own set of experiences, history, and needs. We understand this and meet you where you’re at. We know your name. We invest in you. We’re flexible in how we serve you in becoming whole.
Review Admissions

At Riverplace, we provide a continuum of care with a phased approach to the recovery process.

We are an intensive outpatient treatment center that provides housing in conjunction with recovery programming and other services. Length of stay is based on individual needs, and we offer a variety of options, including intensive outpatient with and without lodging, extended care, and aftercare. Each of these includes weekly programming with a primary counselor and groups, both of which are integral in completing the process.

Primary Care in Anoka

Men’s Intensive Outpatient Program with Housing

This is the first phase in our continuum of care and is an intensive outpatient program with housing.

Staff is on-site 24/7 to serve our clients and tend to any needs they may have.

Programming consists of group therapy Monday-Friday, from 8:50am to 3:00pm.

Groups are led by a primary counselor and include teaching a variety of topics that provide our clients with the necessary tools to obtain freedom from addiction, as well as follow-up and reinforcement in small group discussions.
Clients are also afforded individual meetings with counselors to focus on their progress and go deeper into specific issues.
Beyond this, Riverplace’s CEO, Jeff Hill, leads speaker meetings several times per month and brings in high-level guest speakers from external recovery organizations and other areas of life.

Extended Care in Elk River

Men’s Intensive Outpatient Program with Housing

This is the second phase in our continuum of care and is an intensive outpatient program with housing that offers more freedom and less structure.

Staff is on-site 24/7 to serve our clients and tend to any needs they may have.

Programming consists of group therapy Monday-Friday, from 8:45am to 12:40pm.

Groups are led by a primary counselor and include teaching a variety of topics that provide our clients with the necessary tools to obtain freedom from addiction, as well as individual counseling and small group discussions.
Housing is provided and clients are allowed to have their own vehicles on site and attend school or work, provided that their schedules do not conflict with treatment programming hours.

Intensive Outpatient Program AM/PM

Riverplace also offers outpatient programs for people who do not reside at any of our locations. Morning and evening programming is open to men and women. Groups are led by a primary counselor and include teaching a variety of topics that provide our clients with the necessary tools to obtain freedom from addiction, as well as individual counseling and small group discussions. AM program hours are 9:30am-12:05pm and PM program hours are 6:30pm-9:05pm, Monday-Thursday.

Aftercare

This is an integral part of Riverplace’s continuum of care philosophy. The work of recovery doesn’t end when you leave the treatment center. This level of care is necessary to ensure clients transition successfully back into their daily lives. In group settings, men and women are able to share life experiences, including potential relapse triggers, and work through relatable/applicable solutions for continued success in recovery. Groups are offered on Tuesdays from 9:00am-11:10am and Thursdays from 6:30pm-8:40pm.

Jail Programs

Change By Design is a collaborative partnership between Anoka County Community Corrections and Riverplace Counseling Center. Located at the Anoka County Workhouse, the program is specifically designed for correctional clients with a history of substance use disorders.

Getting to the Roots

It can be easy to focus on the challenges we see and ignore the root causes of those challenges. At Riverplace, we know that real transformation requires addressing the roots and, in many cases, uprooting them. With that in mind, we’ve built our programming around identifying the roots, digging them up, and addressing them with all the individuals we serve.

Group Therapy

Led and moderated by our licensed counselors, group therapy sessions provide an environment for clients to share thoughts and feelings, learn from each other, and go deeper in discussion of program topics. Doing the work of recovery can feel lonely and isolating at times. Group therapy helps to reinforce the “We” of the program and show each client they are not alone in this process.

Individual Therapy

We often find that substance use disorders come after (or even during) any number of traumatic events or circumstances in one’s life and serve as a coping mechanism for the individual who does not otherwise know how to handle what they’ve been through. Through individual and confidential therapy sessions with licensed counselors, clients can work on identifying the “why” behind the “what” and overcoming the issues that lead to their substance use disorder.

Peer Recovery Support

Riverplace has partnered with other peer recovery organizations to walk alongside our clients while they’re going through the program. These individuals have gone through specific training and certification so that through shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment, peer recovery support workers help clients become and stay engaged in the recovery process and reduce the likelihood of relapse.

Family Programs

Family involvement is a critical part of a successful recovery journey and at Riverplace we provide opportunities for this to take place during our clients’ programming. Education about substance use disorders and recovery can help family members in supporting and encouraging their loved one through the recovery process. Providing this education in a structured, moderated format allows for constructive dialogue and feedback in a healing environment.
Family programs are led by Shauna Fenske, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Relational Health & Life Coach.

Psychoeducation

Psychoeducation is an evidence-based therapeutic intervention for clients that provides information and support to better understand and cope with illness. At Riverplace, this is provided through structured group and individual sessions, handouts, booklets, and other program-supportive educational materials.

Nutrition and fitness programs

Building and maintaining a healthy connection between mind, body, and spirit requires focus on each of these areas. At Riverplace, we provide this through guided physical training sessions, fitness classes, and health & nutrition education. We believe that physical health promotes continued mental and spiritual health, and this is a place where you can work on all three.
Nutrition and fitness programs are led by Keri Anderson, Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach.

At Riverplace, you get to…

When it comes to treatment, individuals often feel like they “have to” do the work. At Riverplace, we’re changing that conversation and helping the individuals we serve say, “I get to do the work.” We’re taking a person-centered approach to treatment, building community, and combining structure with freedom.

The result?

Clients are healing, growing, and transforming their lives every day.

What’s one of the things that sets Riverplace apart? Community.

When individuals become clients, they immediately feel like they’re part of the Riverplace family. Relationships are built, friendships are formed, and connections are created. We’re building community in a world that can feel very isolated and separated, and much of this community vibe is created within our housing platform.

MEN’S HOUSING

We believe living conditions are just as important as programming, and this is why we provide high-level accommodations at all of our properties. We have carefully crafted each living space with comfort and community in mind, and we feel these homes, coupled with our program offerings, are what truly set Riverplace apart and at the forefront of the recovery world.

We have 3 properties, each customized to fit the necessary level of care:

Anoka is the first phase in our continuum of care and is an intensive outpatient program with housing.

Elk River is the second phase in our continuum of care and offers more freedom and less structure.
