Why Choose Vertava Health of Massachusetts

Formerly known as Swift River

Why Choose Vertava Health of Massachusetts
Swift River is a special place!!! I’ve been to several treatment centers and I can truly say Swift River is a special place. The staff is super understanding and kind most of the staff have walked the walk if you know what I mean. The program itself is great for building a solid foundation and getting u ready for the real world! It just Different than any other facility I’ve been too they really care and it’s really special. I never leave reviews but I thought this was important to do. Thank you for everything Swift River

5 Star Review
I can only say that just getting into a treatment facility is so hard in many regards. I struggled for weeks to get my husband the help he needed and the staff made it happen. They all worked together with me, but James was the best by far!! He not only called other faciilties to get him somewhere, but made a miracle happen with the insurance to get him there that next day!!! Wow, there are still people who care and will go the extra mile. I am only expecting my husband to get the best care!!! Thank you all, and especially James!

Treatment Modalities


Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT strategies are based on the theory that maladaptive behavioral patterns like substance use, learning-processes play a critical role. Vertava Health of Massachusetts clients in CBT learn to identify and correct problematic thoughts that lead to undesirable behaviors. Utilizing a range of skills, this type of therapy can be used to stop drug misuse and address other problems that often co-occur with it.

DBT brain

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

A modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), DBT holds its roots in mindfulness. At Vertava Health of Massachusetts, DBT allows clients to make a commitment to the core conditions of acceptance and change through the principle of dialectics. DBT helps patients deal with their emotions in a healthy, calm and mindful manner.


Adventure Therapy

With over 500 acres of rolling countryside in the Berkshire Mountains, there is plenty to explore on the Vertava Health of Massachusetts grounds. Doing so allows for the renewal of human spirit through adventure. Some of the distinguishing features on our campus include a high and low ropes challenge course, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, as well as ATV/RZR vehicles to explore the acreage with counselors.


Art Therapy

For decades, the process of creating art has been understood to produce therapeutic benefits. At Vertava Health of Massachusetts, we know that art therapy allows our clients to learn a new way to express themselves, explore their emotions, manage their addictions and improve their self-esteem.


Eye Movement Desensitization And Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)

EMDR is a psychotherapy that emphasizes disturbing memories as a cause of psychopathology. EMDR is often used to help with the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
