With natural elements and modern amenities, our campus is designed to enhance the patient experience, providing a sense of safety and calm so that they can focus on regaining sobriety. Our professional staff has deep expertise in treating veterans’ substance use and other mental and behavioral health disorders. We’re passionate about helping you find long-term recovery and return to a healthy, meaningful life.

Clinically-Proven Rehab Programs

The Estate’s proven addiction treatment programs combine evidence-based clinical and medical interventions with 12-Step principles. Most patients begin their stay in our state-of-the-art detox facility, where they can withdraw safely before transitioning to our residential program.

The therapeutic elements of our program include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and more. Patients participate in both individual and group therapy settings, led by master’s level therapists, licensed counselors, and peer support specialists.

Modern, Home-like Amenities

Our gender-specific cottages are spacious and luxurious, with modern amenities that include full kitchens, private bathrooms, and upgraded furnishings.

The neighborhood-like atmosphere of our campus encourages connection with like-minded peers experiencing similar challenges. Our grounds include a full gym, fitness center, walking trails, and indoor and outdoor common areas to relax and socialize.

An Emphasis on Recovery Resiliency

Our approach to recovery is based on creating realistic living environments that prepare our patients to grasp the future with the tools they need to stay focused and determined in recovery. While The Estate Residential Treatment Center offers numerous opportunities for recreation and self-exploration, we also treat our patients’ stay as a working rehabilitation program.

Our patients help cook their own meals and have various responsibilities in their cottages. We find that treating recovery like ‘real life’ helps the chances of success as people re-enter their homes and places of work.

Find Sobriety in the Beauty of Nature

The Estate at River Bend is located on the banks of the Pascagoula River, providing a serene and inspiring backdrop to start your recovery story. Our facility is safe and secluded yet convenient to the Gulf Coast, Mobile, New Orleans, and Jackson.

The peaceful natural surroundings are integral to the healing process with research-based experiential therapy modalities that include ropes courses for both one-on-one and group sessions. Experience the healing power of nature and find your recovery surrounded by peers that understand what you are going through and how to get better.



We accept insurance plans from most providers, including TRICARE, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Humana, Aetna, and are a Veterans Community Care Network (VACCN) provider. Contact us to learn what benefits are available through your plan.

Meet Elvis – Our Resident K-9 Companion

A friend to all on the road to recovery

A spirited lab mix, Elvis, our K-9 companion, is part of what makes a visit to The Estate at River Bend truly special.
