The River source in Arizona offers so much to residents of the Valley who are in need of a change in their way of life. The transition area is a one-mile stretch of water marked by three distinct points that signify points of transition between the real world and the afterlife. The name of the transitional area, after being chosen due to its connection to the River of the Sun. The River of the Sun, as its name indicates, is a natural occurrence that flows through the city of Phoenix. It has long given the residents of the central region of Arizona and surrounding areas a glimpse into the no-frills lifestyle that residents in the city of Phoenix have come to enjoy.
The River of the Sun is also known for its transitional living areas. The residents of the River of the Sun will find themselves at a “sober living” program, during which time they will be grouped together based upon their drinking and drug/alcohol use. The purpose of the program is not for them to develop new skills or habits that will aid in their recovery, but rather to assist them with reliving the past. Through group discussions, the residents will gain insight into what triggered their addiction, how it affected their family and friends, the impact it had on their work and social life, and how they managed to successfully get off the addictive substances and into sober living.
The transitional living homes offer so much more. They include after-care programs that allow the residents of the transition zone to interact with one another in an attempt to rekindle the lost bonds. The Arizona Drug Rehabilitation Program also offers so much more. After detoxification, they offer aftercare programs such as Narcotics Anonymous and Sex Addicts Anonymous.
