CUMMINGTON, Mass. (October 4, 2017) – Swift River, thought leader in alcoholism, substance use disorder and mental health treatment, is now licensed for 32 ATS (Detox) and 80 CSS (Residential) beds, for a total of 112.

We would like to thank the entire Berkshires community and all of our gifted employees for the tremendous effort over the past six months to ensure Swift River is in significant compliance with state regulations and continuing its success in working to meet the needs of the area.
