River City Rehabilitation Center is an Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment Clinic based on a Multi-Disciplinary Team Approach. The team consists of Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists and a Licensed Professional Counseling Staff. Medications used in treatment are Methadone and Antabuse.
The mission of River City Rehabilitation Center, is to provide quality substance abuse treatment to the adult chemical dependent population of Bexar County and the surrounding contiguous counties. The focus will be especially on individuals who are dependent on Opioid and Alcohol type chemicals. This program will also network, coordinate and support in triaging individuals into community health settings, whether public or private.
River City Rehabilitation Center's basic philosophy is that chemical dependency is a treatable primary, chronic and progressive disease characterized by loss of control from mind-altering substances. It is further held that there are multiple etiologies with biological, psychological, and sociological components. It is not only the compulsive use, but also an interlocking system of feelings, behaviors and interactions that may also contribute to dysfunction. Our professional Multi-Discipline Team's task is to address substance abuse and its concomitant issues and deal with them on an individual basis.
River City Rehabilitation Center's staff are involved in organizations whose activities help reduce the stigma for those on methadone maintenance through published editorials, community forums and speaking to various groups. River City Rehabilitation Center's staff are affiliated with the following: San Antonio Fighting Back, Bexar County Juvenile Board, Bexar County Coalition for Dual Diagnosis and the United Way of San Antonio.
