The privately owned Estate at River Bend, which opened its doors in Lucedale, MS, at the beginning of the year, has just announced that its discounted introductory pricing will continue until the end of September, 2019. This will empower more people struggling with alcohol and drugs, so that they have access to first-class treatment, at a lower price.

More About The Estate at River Bend

This unique facility, which is situated on more than 100 acres of glorious, woodland, provides primary drug and alcohol treatment with support from highly qualified mental health specialists.

There is a choice of 30 to 90 day live-in treatment programs for adults age 18-plus. These comprise research-backed practices which have been shown to offer patients successful recovery over the long-term.

The clinical programming and male and female living environment are geared to generate an atmosphere which is congenial to empowering patients with the confidence they need to get back on track, and do well when they  return to a real life environment. A spokesperson has stated that: “The clinical mission is to: establish a collaborative relationship with the client, their family, referral source, and recovery community, in order to encourage long-term recovery”. And it is this broad approach, which might make all the difference.

So What are Patients Offered?

The staff at the Estate at Riverbend, which is overseen by Bernard Matherne, MS, ICADC-II, ACRPS; and James Hahn, MBA; boasts a formidable clinical team, which together, combine over half a century of experience. All patients are allowed to take part in licensed clinical staff-lead family, group and individual therapy sessions. (All the staff in this instance are  MSC qualified). On top of this, the enchanting extensive grounds on the estate provide an excellent chance for participants to enjoy a range of therapeutic nature-based experiential techniques. And this naturopathic angle, is one of the unique benefits on offer at this unique facility.

Therapy Programs

Individual Therapy

This allows patients to put the spotlight on any underlying experiences and triggers they may have, that are responsible for fueling their alcohol and/or drug addiction.


This therapy examines the connection between patients’ behaviors, feelings and thoughts, to help them learn better coping skills, and achieve control over their actions and emotions.

Motivational Interviewing

This involves: “a technique that empowers clients to take responsibility for their recovery and discover their own motivation to change. It is based on the belief that real change comes from within”.

Family Therapy

The patients family are invited to attend for these sessions, which take an in-depth look at various problems, relationships, roles, and boundaries.


This aspect comprises a 12-Step work program of principles for daily living during the patients’ residential stay.
