Healing River Recovery and Wellness Center


Healing River Review

Located in Okanagan in British Columbia, Canada, Healing River Recovery and Wellness Center is a holistic and well-rounded treatment facility that offers flexible, individualized treatment for men and women struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. All programs include a wide range of core therapies, with additional holistic methods available as well.

Accommodations and Food

While Healing River keeps its location and details about its accommodations discreet, the facility does offer all residents who stay there private rooms with full or queen beds, dressers and basic decorations. To ensure everyone gets enough one-on-one attention, the program also keeps client rolls low. Besides the bedrooms themselves, the facility also has common living areas, cable TV and WiFi, meditation and therapy rooms, outdoor walking paths, a swimming pool and a nearby river and lake. Throughout their stay, all residents are served three meals a day by a team of on-staff chefs who use only locally sourced ingredients.

Treatment and Staff

Before beginning treatment, all clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help the staff determine their needs. As a non-medical facility, those in need of detox services need to get referrals to nearby programs as necessary. Unlike many recovery programs, the Healing River Recovery and Wellness Center offers both 90-day and nine-month residential programs.

In both of the above, residents can expect to attend both individual and group therapy with evidence-based treatment methods including CBT and EMDR. Other core methods include Somatic Experiencing, mindfulness training, art therapy, family therapy and SMART Recovery principles. Dual diagnosis support services are available as well. Groups cover many different topics including emotional processing, Family Systems, life skills, trigger identification and relapse prevention.

The staff at Healing River Recovery and Wellness Center consists of LPCs, LMHCs, horticulturists working with chefs and additional Master’s-level clinicians.


Beyond the core services, the organization also has a whole host of additional therapies that can be added in as necessary. These methods can include yoga, Reiki, massage therapy, acupuncture and recreational therapy. Those who complete one of these primary care plans can also work with staff to develop stepped down aftercare and discharge plans as necessary.

In Summary

Overall, Healing River Recovery and Wellness Center is a wide-ranging organization with flexible lengths of stay and many different therapies for clients in need. Treatment includes evidence-based counseling, SMART Recovery, dual diagnosis support and holistic therapy as well. Though the cost of these programs may vary depending on insurance and length of stay, Healing River Recovery and Wellness Center is a strong and well-rounded resource for those in the area.
